ISS offer crew free membership

The International Superyacht Society (ISS) is offering one year’s free membership for superyacht crew, which is valued at 150 USD. The one-year free membership initiative, sponsored by Wright Maritime Group, is available to all crew with their STCW basic safety training certificates, and has been launched to ensure crew have a voice among the wider superyacht community.

This, according to ISS president Derik Wagner, will build the ISS’s important relationship with crew, the latter of which Wagner calls “one of the industry’s most important groups”.


One of the key benefits of this membership, is the opportunity for crew to build relationships with those they deal with sometimes on a daily basis, including those at the top of the ladder at the following: shipyards, management companies, recruitment agencies, training schools, suppliers, major events, superyacht trade organisations, flag states, designers and architects and, of course, crew.


The ISS also stated the offering would include “influencing regulated and non-regulated crew training curriculum”, something of a hot topic in crew messes in 2016 .


To enroll for a free one-year membership, superyacht crew must provide the following information to ISS executive director Amy Halsted at amyhalsted@gmail.com or +1 540 784 4561: name, country of residency, mailing address, mobile phone number, email address, years in yachting and a copy of their STCW basic safety training certification.
