Already we have kicked off the year with the first and hugely successful ‘Caribbean CrewFest’ in Christophe Harbour, St. Kitts. The team are very much looking forward to more of the same throughout the year, and of course Caribbean Crewfest Part II which will be announced soon.

The real success story last year was in taking the ACREW formula of networking and professional development workshops out to where crew are, in the shipyards and marinas. Some fantastic memories and great connections made!

For those that haven’t joined us yet for an event, ACREW brings superyacht industry experts together with crew for professional development workshops covering all departments as well covering issues that affect the entire sector. Great lunches are served and we’re also known for having a happy hour or two! Then of course there’s the ACREW parties that are always a great way to have some fun after all that learning!

Check your schedules, adjust your schedules, we’d love to see at one or all of the events below! Keep your eyes and ears out for more exciting news about some of the special plans that we’re working on for events later this year and early next year. We promise, these are going to take things to another level.

Composite Works, La Ciotat, France                             9th – 10th March


Our first time working with Composite Works and the first event in Europe of 2016, we are very excited to get this under way! With some new partners on board and our personal finance partners on hand throughout the two days, crew will have plenty of opportunity to learn, as well as catch up over lunches and happy hours as they begin another season.


International Quay, Antibes, France                              7th 8th April


Some very exciting workshops scheduled so far and a chance for crew to meet and find out about the Professional Yacht Association (PYA). The workshops will be spread over the two days and crew are invited to enjoy lunch and a sundowner or two!


Palma Superyacht Show, Mallorca                                  28th April 2nd May


The official crew lounge of the show. This is such a highlight of the year for us and the chance to meet crew over a number of days is always appreciated. Over the course of the show there will be workshops, happy hours, demonstrations and amazing lunches. No.12 Fine Wines are even offering stews a chance to visit their premises in order to taste some of their great wines and meet their team.

Last year we were blown away with so many crew contacting us and telling us how they are getting on and thanking us because their big opportunity happened at one of our events, even if they just turned up for the food! This makes us very happy.

We are proud to be able to provide high quality professional development from partners that we know, that we trust and that are leading the field. 2016 is going to be a great year and we’re also are looking forward to the opportunities to meet crew, chatting over lunch, sharing a drink during a happy hour or having fun at a crew party. Hope to see you there!
