Yacht Crew Management Services
Praxis Yacht Services provides a full suite of crew management services, including recruitment, placement, travel, training, leave tracking and visa arrangements to complement our MLC-compliant employment and payroll services.
We work with carefully selected recruitment service partners tailored for the requirements of each yacht. Interviews and screening will be arranged for all potential candidates along with document screening of certificates and references.
Efficient leave tracking
Based on information provided to us from the captain or purser, we track all crew leave and absences to comply with contractual terms and ensure that crew take the accrued leave due to them.
Seamless crew travel
Working with travel agents who specialise in the yachting sector, we arrange the travel requirements for all crew and endeavour to provide two or three travel options for each trip.
Continuous training and development
Yacht crew qualifications will be monitored, and a program of training established to ensure that all crew are scheduled to attend relevant courses and that qualifications are maintained.
Familiarisation and safety training is undertaken on board the yacht by the captain and senior officers and evidenced to us for recording.
Yacht Crew Document Library
Our Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) compliant Seafarers Employment Agreements (SEAs) refer to a number of additional documents that directly affect the seafarer’s contractual rights, obligations and working conditions. Commercial vessels must make these documents accessible to the crew on board at all times, either in the crew mess or via some other internal library.
Praxis Yacht Services can collate a bound folder containing the required crew documents for any vessel operating commercially. We can also arrange a bespoke online document library, which can be accessed via laptop, mobile or tablet.
