About Us

Our Approach

SUPERYACHT CREW INTERNATIONAL is Australasia’s leading Superyacht crew recruitment agency. We stand ready to help and look forward to being of service to you! We know yachting; we’ve worked as professional crew for many years so you can rely on Superyacht Crew International to provide you with the most talented marine crew for placement in the jobs you need filled.

We listen to what our clients want. The more they tell us about their operation and specific preferences, the better the result. Of course we know what makes good crew generally but when we gain insight into what matters most to individual captains and owners we can find exactly who they are looking for.
It’s all in the detail. We don’t want to waste anyone’s time so we will only ever send candidates that fit our clients’ spec.

This approach gets us a lot of repeat business!

Our Team:

Altogether our recruiters and consultants have over 50 years of professional yachting experience to draw upon!

In our Head Office, Director Donna Portland heads the team of recruiters, including Dani, Michelle, Holly and our assistants. Lauren is located in South Africa. 

How We Operate:

We are AMSA-registered Crew Placement agents and we are MLC compliant.

Being located in Australia and having representation in South Africa and Europe means that we deal worldwide, not just in the southern hemisphere!

Of course we have our finger firmly on the pulse in Australasia and the Pacific, but being international we have many clients all over the world. Crew of all nationalities contact us from all corners of the globe! The time difference needn’t be a concern – our head office is open for a span of 16 hours every day! So there’s a common time that we can speak to clients and crew via phone or Skype for interviews and meetings! It works.

The Secret of our Success :

Since we know crewing – being ex-yacht crew – when we started this agency our aim was to be the kind of agents we always wanted: fast and reliable with a positive attitude – able to develop good solid ongoing relationships and mindful of your time!

Clients have experienced our positive and timely approach to finding the right person to fit with their team and so our business has largely grown from satisfied clients who have told others about our services and fresh approach.

Crew have benefited from our industry knowledge and have been given fair and honest feedback and professional career advice. We are also accredited crew trainers!

Australia is growing and expanding in the yachting industry and we’ve seen great change and progress over the last 20 years. Over this time we’ve become the premier yacht crew recruiters simply by doing our job well: being diligent and detailed.
