A yacht captain and a former yacht crew have started a company to help crew searching for work to streamline their resume and agency interactions.
Yacht Crew Database (yachtcrewdatabase.com) provides a central online profile for crew that allows them to check-in and connect with the agents they choose.
For agents, it helps keep resumes and job status more current by eliminating the requirement that crew check in. The most up-to-date information is available and searchable. Agents also can browse available crew among those who allow themselves to be found via this system.
Although operating similar to a social networking site, all information on the site is private with only approved and signed in crew agents having access to crew profiles.
Yacht Crew Database was started by Louise Clark in Monaco and Luke Dunstan in Bristol, UK. Both have worked on yachts and understand the challenges of keeping current with crew agents.
