Life After Yachting

A dedicated superyacht event supporting captains and crew who want to start their onshore career.

Welcome to Life After Yachting. The first virtual and in person event to help superyacht crew around the world find success when you are ready to move to an onshore lifestyle.

Monaco Yacht Club | 18th September 2020 | 10 – 6pm

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 is a space to connect with 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 the perfect business plan and investment pitch.

During the live event you will have the opportunity to present your pitch to the ‘Kraken’s Den’ of potential investors and see how you shape up under scrutiny. The Krakens are actively looking to invest so get it right and you may get the cash boost every new business would love to receive.

LAY virtual event

Virtual event

Running throughout the summer captains, crew, businesses and investors can research and qualify each other via two fantastic apps. Those who can’t make it to the live event can find each other virtually and organise online meetings, interviews, growth sessions for entrepreneurs and networking opportunities.

If you can make the live event (and we think you should) you can pre-qualify meetings, organise your time at the event and make sure you make the most of this unique opportunity.

Live event

A one-day event for captains, crew, investors and businesses interested in working with the best of the superyacht industry. The inaugural event will be held at the Monaco Yacht Club on the 18th September from 10 – 6pm and then future events will pop up at yachting locations around the world.

Employers and crew can meet face to face for prearranged meetings and interviews, and entrepreneurs can showcase their ultimate business pitch and present to interested investors.
