Our work

Superyacht Crew Welfare

We partnered with MHG Insurance Brokers to survey seafarers who work on superyachts to investigate welfare issues specific to the sector.

The survey was designed to:

  • highlight areas of welfare needs among seafarers on superyachts
  • see what is working well under current conditions to meet their welfare needs, and what needs improvement
  • explore how existing seafarers’ welfare structures may meet these needs and where there is scope for new provision

The survey was anonymous and asked questions on food, cabins and communications, as well as the health and wellbeing of the men and women working on board. Responses were received from over 400 seafarers.

Inmarsat sponsored the launch of the report, which took place on Monday 3rd December 2018 in London. Read about the launch here.
