Yacht Crew Help

Working on a superyacht can be a dream job but superyacht crew still face challenges like long hours, work-related stress and job insecurity.

These can all take a toll on a crew member’s mental wellbeing, so we wanted to make sure the men and women working on superyachts can easily access the support available to them worldwide when life gets tough.

We set up a steering group of representatives from across the superyacht industry and collaborated to develop Yacht Crew Help – a free, confidential, multilingual helpline for professional yacht crew. Whatever problem someone is facing, wherever they are in the world, Yacht Crew Help will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to provide guidance and support.

A range of information, guidance and resources on issues affecting yacht crew is available on the Yacht Crew Help website, including mental health and wellbeing, bullying and harassment, sexual assault, substance misuse and employment concerns.
