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 want to make sure the men and women working on superyachts can easily access the support available to them worldwide when life gets tough.
You can help us by donating to our fundraiser for a new online toolkit, Yacht Crew Help, to provide superyacht crew with a direct line to free, 24-hour emotional support, guidance, and useful health and welfare resources.
