Nearly one year to the date of its introduction, Sunseeker Superyacht Management has unveiled two new services: one for crew placement, and one for online information management.
If you recall my original story when the division was created, Sunseeker Superyacht Management aimed to ease the burdens of captains and owners of Sunseeker vessels. The new services are quite promising in that regard. The first, Sunseeker Crew, is a dedicated Web site for crew recruitment. Owners in need of captains and crew, as well as captains hiring crew on the boss’ behalf, are encouraged to use it. The Sunseeker management team screens all candidates and verifies references and qualifications before supplying names to contact. Specific to captains, applicants are required to be certified up to Master (Yachts) under 3,000 gross tons, and the team will train them on the yacht’s features. Once the captain is onboard, Sunseeker Crew personnel can, if requested, provide support for maintenance periods, emergencies, or while cruising. Regardless of the position you’re looking to fill, the team can also recommend salary ranges and language to include in contracts. Furthermore, crewmembers seeking jobs can register with Sunseeker Crew, as long as they have a valid STCW95 Basic Safety Training Course and ENG1 Medical Certificate.
The second new service is Virtual Yacht Management (VYM), an online administrative tool accessible only to registered users and containing encrypted information. The data will be available 24 hours a day, including certifications, safety records and procedures, financials, crew records, work lists, and more. Sunseeker Superyacht Management promises all details will be updated instantly, so that you’ll always have the most accurate information at hand.
