A quality and experienced crew lies at the heart of any yacht’s success. Finding the right people with the right temperament, appropriate character and proper skill-set is vital. This is where our yachting crew agency, YPI Crew, comes into its own.
YPI Crew is a specialist yacht crew agency started in 2002 and since firmly established as a leading player in the industry. Recruiting at all levels from deckhands to captains, clients all over the world understand that a CV from YPI Crew means the time invested in interviewing the candidate is not wasted.
Under the leadership of Laurence Reymann, YPI Crew is recognised for its attention to detail and its proven ability to successfully match the right crew and captains with client owners and their yachts – a vital ingredient in minimising on-board upheaval and saving Owners a lot of valuable time and money.
YPI Crew’s team of recruitment consultants pride themselves in understanding the specific needs of both their clients and their candidates. Whilst enjoying all the benefits of a bespoke state-of-the-art database, the team profits from the results of nurturing a very personal and unique one-on-one approach.
Candidates are always interviewed face-to-face whenever possible, their experience and goals discussed, references and certificates checked and a plan of action formulated.
“It is only by knowing and understanding candidates that the right match can be found,” explains Laurence, “and in times when no-one wants to throw money away, that is the real value of having YPI Crew as your partner in recruitment.”
Today YPI Crew is recruiting more than ever for the world’s largest and most important vessels currently under construction.
“As a Captain, there are a lot of choices for crew placement agencies. I think most agree that the most significant factor in hiring is the time investment to properly select good crew. Some crew agencies respond to job orders with a barrage of candidates who may not all even fit specified qualifications and leaving you with the time consuming initial vetting process. YPI Crew actually invests the time necessary to perform a vast amount of the initial vetting process with thorough reference checks, informative presentation of candidates from their process, and matching the candidates with the program on many levels. YPI’s process never leaves you wondering why you have paid the placement fee”
