Neptune Group Yachting (NGY), a full-service luxury yacht charter agency, announced the opening of Neptune Crew, a new division offering professional yacht crew placement services. Julia Haines-LaPenta has been named director of crew placement for Neptune Crew.
“Over the years, we have received dozens of requests from yacht owners and captains asking
us to help them find top-notch crew members who not only have the requisite skills and
certifications, but also excel at the all-important hospitality side of yachting,” said DJ Parker,
president of Neptune Group Yachting. “With Julia Haines-LaPenta, a highly experienced
superyacht chief stew, at the helm, Neptune Crew now lets us offer dedicated crew placement
services – in addition to charter marketing, management, consulting and brokerage services –
to the owners and captains of yachts in our NGY Charter Fleet as well as other clients. Neptune
Crew also serves as a natural bridge between Neptune Group Yachting’s luxury yacht vacations
agency and our Neptune Group crew accommodations business.”
Haines-LaPenta began her career in the yachting industry in 2006 as stew on the 151-foot M/Y Zaza (previously M/Y Fortunate Sun). She served on the 170-foot Feadship M/Y Battered Bull and 164-foot Delta M/Y Happy Days. In 2011, Haines-LaPenta joined the 284-foot M/Y Cakewalk’s crew of 26.
“Working as part of the crew on these large yachts has given me firsthand experience in what it
takes to be a great yacht crew member and charter vacation host,” Haines-LaPenta said. “With
Neptune Crew, I now have the opportunity to put that experience to work for our clients.”
Neptune Crew is accepting applications from all professional yacht crew, ranging from day
workers and entry-level deckhands to chief engineers, chief stews and captains.
