Yacht crew recruitment and management

Crew services

The crew is a crucial point of success in a plan, on a commercial, human, technical and financial level. Boatin’France has made these elements what it does best, and offers a complete service, from providing the specialist crew to the complete management of what you plan.


Recruitment & Management

For the year or for the season, your crew - Captain, Cook, Host(ess), Mechanic, Mariner – will be right at the heart of your plan’s success.

If your choice has heavy financial implications, it is just as determining for the times that you spend on board. By giving the crew one of your most precious items to look after, as well as looking after your safety, you are giving them big responsibilities.

So, we really take recruitment to heart, and we personally meet each applicant that is presented to you. We take the time to check the references, qualifications, certificates, administrative documents of each mariner, and check the conformity of their qualifications with the boat’s flag.

As part of managing crew recruitment, we iron out all the processes, by becoming the main contact point, and allow each one of the crew members to concentrate on what they do, with active support from us.
