As one of the major players in the superyacht industry, Imperial offers the best resources to your superyacht crew. We ensure that they are prepared and supported for any and every situation. We place the utmost importance on the calibre of our superyachts crew. In addition to appointing only the most experienced professionals, year-round training is an important part of any seafarer’s employment, and essential to ensuring safety on-board. All crew are trained to meet our stringent internal standards, and external training is provided in accordance with regulatory requirements.
Imperial’s dedicated in-house Crew Administration Department also takes care of all administrative tasks required to manage the employment of the seafarer. This includes employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, payroll, reference checks and verification of qualifications. This ensures Imperial can act with immediate effect to any urgent crew demands. Imperial manages over 800 crew members on a daily basis and retains a 98% satisfaction rate for all seafarers placed on-board yachts under our management. It is proof that our dynamic and flexible crewing system is among the most effective in the world.
In addition to sourcing the best crew and pairing them with the right vessel and owner, Imperial conducts year-round training programmes to keep all personnel to the highest standards. All crew must sign a contract and confidentiality agreement, and our Crew Management Service can respond instantly to crewing demands, drawing on our extensive network of proven candidates.
Rigorous safety procedures lay at the heart of Imperial’s Yacht Management Service. Extensive crew instructions on the proper use of all marine and watersports equipment is conducted. Our training programmes include regular drills for practical safety protocols, emergency response and first-aid. With Imperial, you are in the industry’s most capable hands.
