We do the legwork for you – filtering candidate applications and then sending you the most suited, who have been interviewed, reference and qualification-checked. We've developed a reliable and consistent approach to supplying the right individuals for your crewed sailing holidays.
Finding the right match is crucial for owners and crews, so we will never put unsuitable candidates forward to make up numbers. We listen carefully to what you and the crew are looking for and use our experience to create the perfect match, which means we’re more likely to get it right first time.
Our crews are part of the family and we talk to them on a daily basis wherever they are in the world. So we can take care of any issues quickly and find replacements if needed.
Oyster Crew is an MCA-certified Recruitment and Placement Agency. The Maritime Labour Convention (MLC 2006) is an International Labour Organization convention established in 2006 to provide a set of international standards for seafarers, including sailing yacht crew. It outlines seafarer's rights to decent conditions of living and working onboard including employment agreements, hours of work or rest, payment of wages, paid annual leave and repatriation. We work within these MLC guidelines to ensure that our sailing yacht crew are fully aware of their rights as a professional seafarer.
In accordance with MLC 2006, Oyster Crew charges no fee to seafarers for the service nor do we operate a blacklist to prevent qualified seafarers from gaining employment.
