The candidate put forward to me by VIP Yacht Crew was a perfect fit for our team. Our new recruit shows empathy and kindness to her fellow crew members which has made our team stronger. Prior to the candidate joining the vessel, the crew dynamics was quite divided and we have since worked hard to build a stronger, inclusive team environment. I would highly recommend HODs to source someone that has a combination of the right interpersonal skills, as well as qualifications. This is something that this industry has been missing.

“Chief Stew”

The time and effort it takes to interview and bring crew on board is huge. In addition to the hiring process, the initial training weeks take a senior stewardess off of her duties to assist with training. Should we then discover the candidate has poor people skills or communication skills, we have to start over again. This delays the entire team in progressing and is a huge headache for heads of departments. Working with Vip Yacht Crew when hiring was brilliant and I know we both share a common desire to ensure the mental well-being of the crew.


I was struggling to find a position which was the right fit. Working with VIPYC, I was able to find a new Stewardess position in less than one month. I found VIP Yacht Crew on social media and saw some posts of old clients saying how amazing they are and it’s true! They were a great help for me. I’m really thankful to them. What I liked the most about engaging with VIP Yacht Crew was that they always take care of their clients. Vip Yacht Crew has not only been a great help but I appreciate their honesty and commitment to their cause. They really do care about us and if an opportunity isn’t right, they will tell us. I highly recommend Vip Yacht Crew, you will see results and will be very happy and thankful.


I was feeling a bit lost, not sure if yachting was for me anymore, but glad I gave it a second chance. After reaching out to Vip Crew for support in my job search, she found a position for me with an amazing chief stew and a great crew.
VIP Yacht Crew is more personal than your average agency, they take the time to get to know the crew and captains on a personal level whilst maintaining professionalism, hence I had more trust in the boat that was recommended. What I admire most about this boutique agency is that they are very honest about what to expect.
