Our Operational & Technical skills
As one of the superyacht major players in the superyacht industry, Imperial offers the best resources to your superyacht crew, ensuring 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 Imperial internal standards and external training is provided in accordance with regulatory requirements.
Our dedicated in-house Crew Administration department also takes care of all administrative tasks required to manage the employment of the seafarer. This includes, but is not limited to, employment contracts, confidentiality agreements, payroll, reference checks and verification of qualifications – ensuring we can act with immediate effect to any urgent crew demands. Imperial manages nearly 650 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 yacht and owner, Imperial conducts year-round training programs to keep all personnel at the top of their game. All crew sign a contract and confidentiality agreement, and our Crew Management Service can react instantaneously to crewing demands using our extensive network of proven candidates.
Whether for charter, for sale, or for the fastidious owner who demands a yacht in a perennial state of readiness, the role of Imperial’s Interior Manager is vital. This exacting professional maintains that the housekeeping, crew training, safety drills and team performance all remain up to scratch – ensuring that every yacht owner receives the highest levels of service and presentation.
Rigorous safety procedures lay at the heart of Imperial’s Yacht Management Service. As well as extensive crew instruction on the proper use of all marine and watersports equipment, our training programs include regular drills for practical safety protocols, emergency response, and first-aid. With Imperial, you are in the industry’s most capable hands.
