Trials & Tribulations of Hiring Super Yacht Crew

It Takes All Sorts to Make a World

While researching an article all about those who work as crew aboard superyachts some really interesting stories have come to light including one deckhand who didn’t tell his Captain he was still employed by the Royal Navy and was effectively AWOL (yes, they did track him down and yes the Captain had some fascinating conversations with the Chief of Military Police at HMS something or other).

Then there was the couple who designed a web site for a boat maintenance company they had set up advertising its head office as the port address of the boat they were working on, and finally a hostess who had a cold and went to the doctor to get herself signed off with Swine Flu because she decided she didn’t want to do any more charters!

There have to be more horror stories. Have you got any to relate?
