With news that the average stewardess leaves the superyacht industry having worked in it for just 272 days yacht crew retention is becoming a real issue.
Retaining good crew is not being helped when companies the likes of Burgess offer a position as 3rd officer on board a yacht with a salary of £3,000 pm month in 2023 when in 2010 articles written by us show that was the salary a deckhand could expect to earn back then.
So it is perhaps good news that Quaynote plan to hold a conference entitled
Improving Yacht Crew Retention taking place in Nice, France on Thursday 9th March 2023.
Building on its successful launch in 2022, this one-day conference will bring together an international audience to address one of the industry`s most pressing questions – how can superyachts retain their crew?
Captains, Senior Crew, Yacht Managers, Associations, Crew Managers and Agencies, Crew Training companies, Superyacht lawyers, Crew Pension Providers, Tax Specialists will gather in the south of France – itself a yachting and crew hub – to tackle some of the thorny issues that impact yacht crew retention.
With its emphasis on establishing best practice, Improving Yacht Crew Retention features interactive panels and case-studies moderated by an impressive line-up of thought-leaders.
Topics to be discussed include:
- What should go into crew employment contracts?
- What are the keys to enhancing crew retention?
- Dealing with Illness, Injury & Death
- How has MLC implementation varied across different countries?
- Relocation and its impact on crew and families
- Training for crew on sexual harassment
Improving Yacht Crew Retention offers the perfect platform for networking with superyacht professionals who share a passion for recruiting, training, incentivising – and retaining – the best crew.
