Find your perfect onshore job
Many captains and crew find it hard to transition to a fulfilling onshore role when they are ready to leave life at sea. The superyacht industry is a wonderful and very niche sector so it can be hard to find new employers who understand the skills you have and bypass the issue when your yacht qualifications that you have worked so hard for are not transferable to other industries.
Life After Yachting will bring together great employers such as shipyards and superyacht services, alongside businesses from alternative luxury sectors who actively want to employ yacht crew, and value the aptitude and experience you can bring to their company.
Join our business incubator
Night watches and downtime at sea can give crew time to think up fantastic business ideas. Shaping those ideas into a successful long-term business is a complex task. Life After Yachting will connect you with a team of experts who can help to maximise your growth and assist you in creating and actioning the perfect business plan and pitch.
During the virtually live event you will have the opportunity to present your pitch to the ‘Kraken’s Den’ of business advisors and see how you shape up under scrutiny. The Krakens are highly successful leaders in yachting and their valuable feedback will help you to turn your ideas into accomplishments.
Running throughout September captains, crew and businesses can research and qualify each other via our virtual superyacht jobs fair app. The clever app is a professional match maker and helps you connect with the right people whether you are a crew member looking for onshore work, or a company looking to hire the best of the best yacht crew globally.
The app allows you to present your skills and experiences, and from that optimise your connections and organise secure virtual meetings and online interviews so you make the most of this unique opportunity.
Virtually live event
A one-day live virtual event on the 18th September where partner companies will broadcast a 30 minute segment explaining who they are, what they do and who they are looking to work with. This allows crew to find out more about potential future employers, advisors and the LAY support network.
After this the Krakens Den will begin where entrepreneurial crew can showcase their business plan, ideas and pitches and present to our leaders of yachting John Courtney from FunAir, Will Faimetea from Bond TM, Sarrah Macey from Global Superyacht Marketing, Titta Uoti-Väisänen from TUVYC and Annamari Lammassaari from SourceRiviera.
