Talent Specialists

Our bespoke, boutique placement agency’s core focus is to not only attract and retain top talent but to find the right cultural fit for the yacht and owners. We have a fundamental understanding of the blend of soft and hard skills required to build world-class crews as such we are an integral part of the crew recruitment process. Our team is highly skilled in the field of human behaviour and talent solutions. We support you in hand-selecting premium crew who are competent in delivering the ultimate gold class experience.

Crew Placement

The candidate who was put forward to me by the Crew Coach, was a perfect fit for our team. Our new recruit shows empathy and kindness to her fellow crew members which has made our team stronger. Prior to the candidate joining the vessel, the crew dynamics was quite divided and we have since worked hard to build a stronger, inclusive team environment. I would highly recommend HODs to source someone that has a combination of the right interpersonal skills, as well as qualifications. This is something that this industry has been missing.

The time and effort it takes to interview and bring crew on board is huge. In addition to the hiring process, the initial training weeks take a senior stewardess off of her duties to assist with training. Should we then discover the candidate has poor people skills or communication skills, we have to start over again. This delays the entire team in progressing and is a huge headache for heads of departments. Working with The Crew Coach when hiring was brilliant and I know we both share a common desire to ensure the mental wellbeing of the crew.


Chief Stew

I was struggling to find a position which was the right fit. Working with The Crew Coach, I  was able to find a new Stewardess position in less than one month. I found Karine on Instagram and Facebook and I saw some posts of old clients saying how amazing she is and it’s true! Karine was and is a great help for me. I’m really thankful to her. What I liked the most about engaging with her service was that she always takes care of her clients. The Crew Coach has not only been a great help but that she really cares about us and if an opportunity isn’t right, she will tell us. I highly recommend Karine, you will see results and will be very happy and thankful. I feel that I have a “strong shoulder” to lean on in challenging situations and I cannot describe how great this feeling is.

Thank you!


2nd Stew

I was without a job because the job that had been offered pulled out last minute. I’ve met Karine personally, her honesty and what she does on social media is a very refreshing transparent way of portraying yachting. She is a realist in that she focuses on the positive side of yachting, but also the difficulties that we experience onboard, and how to overcome it.

I was feeling a bit lost, not sure if yachting was for me anymore, but glad I gave it a second chance. After reaching out to Karine for support in my job search, she found a position for me with an amazing chief stew and a great crew.

The Crew Coach is more personal than your average agency, Karine takes the time to get to know the crew and captains on a personal level whilst maintaining professionalism, hence I had more trust in the boat that was recommended. What I admire most about this boutique agency is that they are very honest about what to expect.

I have since grown a lot in my new position. I would have never thought that larger yachts were for me, but it is way better! I am very grateful for everyone on board, and all that I have learned. I have gone from being in a really low place to now feeling like my struggles are things I can handle. Crew come to me for advice now, which is somewhat draining, but again it shows that it is because people view me as put together and strong leader onboard, which is something I appreciate.
