Boating & Yachting - Crew


Many of the larger boats have permanent crew, but there is a burgeoning market for part-timers, who offer their services during the summer months only. In much the same way that maintenance staff should come recommended, so should crew.

Owners are advised to take the advice of their local chandler, their local yacht club or marina owners, in order to get the best deal. It is particularly easy for would-be crew members to enhance their experience with a large dash of bravado, so owners should ensure they take references, or contact other local owners berthed in the same port.
