Crew Board combines the skills of an experienced yacht recruitment team with modern technology to simplify the process of matching the perfect crew with the perfect yacht.
What is Crew Board?
Our platform helps to bring down the cost of yacht recruitment for employers whilst creating a fair and transparent experience for candidates. While some companies charge a subscription fee each month to access a database anyone can join, traditional recruiters bill a month’s salary for each candidate they place.
We manually verify each and every crew profile to MLC standards to ensure a high-quality database of candidates. Our technology then helps us source and screen candidates for specific roles. The time saved using technology makes us more streamlined and efficient. This means that we charge the employers much less than traditional agents for each candidate hired with Crew Board.
If you’re looking for crew to fill a job onboard a yacht or superyacht, then save yourself some time and let our platform do all the hard work.
Junior Crew Commitment
We’re committed to helping junior crew find work more easily, so we don’t charge any fees (ever!) for hiring crew up to a salary limit of less than €3,000 a month.
Our technology helps you to find the needle in the haystack. Every position onboard needs a specific type of person and we believe that technology can help supply the right crew faster and more efficiently.
Managed database to MLC standards
Our database is carefully managed by real people who understand the industry and conform to MLC standards. We personally verify new profiles and also manage applications to provide an exclusive, high-quality pool of suitable candidates.
No rolling fees
Crew Board does not charge rolling monthly or annual fees as we do not have a subscription model. You will pay nothing up to the point of hire. We are also half the price of traditional yacht recruitment agencies.
Six month warranty
We are confident in our abilities and offer a generous six month warranty on crew in case it doesn’t work out for any reason.
Our system is continually refined and improved based on your feedback and we are committed to providing the best possible service.
How Crew Board works for employers
Tell us about your yacht
We have a quick sign up process to give us an insight into the kind of culture you have onboard and what you are looking for in a candidate. You can then easily post any yacht jobs you’re currently recruiting for.
Get hand picked candidates by email
Once you are verified as an employer, our industry-leading algorithms and recruiters work together to identify great candidates based on your needs. We then send the CV's of shortlisted crew directly to your inbox.
Easily manage the entire recruitment process
You can manage all applications through our innovative candidate management board. This allows you to stay on top of the process and also automatically informs candidates of their application status.
Hire a candidate!
Fantastic! Our system makes it simple to hire candidates at half the price of traditional recruiters, and free for junior crew!
Free Junior Crew
For junior positions less than €3,000 a month, employers can hire crew for free with the exact same quality of service, including manual vetting and manual job applications management.
For crew who earn €3000 or more per month, the fee for our introduction is the equivalent of 50% of the candidate’s starting monthly salary. This also comes with a generous six month warranty period. Traditional recruiters will typically charge a full month’s salary and offer a 3 month warranty.
Crew Board can assist with your search through innovative matching technology
Let our platform do the hard work and suggest positions suitable for your skills and experiences. Our email alert system will keep you up to date with the latest roles so you never miss an opportunity.
Candidates benefit from a high level of privacy throughout the process. For example, employers can only see your profile when you apply for the position in particular and is never shown publicly.

We’ve put years of recruitment experience into designing an optimal CV format, and we’ll let you have one for free. Once you finish your profile you can download a bespoke CV, complete with all your details and free of any Crew Board branding, to use as you wish.
Are you tired of chasing up crew agents? Our system ensures that you are automatically updated on the progress of your application and will let you know if you have been shortlisted or if the position has been filled.
All documents are well organised on our system and can also be downloaded in a convenient zip file.
Employers post junior roles for free with us to help alleviate the barriers that exist when trying to find that all important first position onboard. We hope to be part of a positive change in the industry that looks out for the future generations of yacht crew.
