Yacht Crew Connection is like mom to crew

ADVERTISEMENT

A yachting professional who is also a mom has started a business to help new crew feel like part of the family.

Yacht Crew Connection is designed to give crew who are far away from home and perhaps on their own for the first time a place to turn for information, resources and counseling. It also serves as a local connection and emergency contact for the parents of new yacht crew.



“We provide support, reassurance, guidance and hugs as needed,” founder and president Peg Garvia said. “We welcome crew like our own family.”



With two daughters of her own, Garvia, who is part-time operations manager at MTS Yachts in Ft. Lauderdale, said she started the business to serve as surrogate mom. She uses her skills and contacts from her experience in the industry as a crew placement coordinator and bookkeeper, and as a motivator.



“It’s important because healthy and happy crew are what captains look for,” Garvia said.
