Sea Gear incorporates branding strategies to create a unique ‘look’ for each yacht. Men and women alike deserve impeccably fitting clothing and equipment. Assembling a uniform must go beyond looking nice, it must also flatter and hold up to the wear and tear of its intended use. In addition to garments and design services, Sea Gear offers a full range of hospitality products. Whether the yacht is entertaining family, friends or charter guests, there are many items that can help guests enjoy a tailor-made experience. Their newest product is a

ETHICAL YACHT WEAR
Ethical Yacht Wear supplies the yachting industry with a completely sustainable, fair trade uniform range. Acknowledging the yachting industry could be better environmentally speaking, Lauren Wardley at Ethical Yacht Wear decided it was time for change and wanted to create a means for the yachting community to be able to give back to the oceans that make our industry possible. Ethical Yacht Wear only supplies uniform made from sustainable fabrics. Everything they provide is made from 100% organic cotton or recycled performance material incorporating ocean bound plastic. They also make sure all of their uniforms are made under fair trade, meaning every person in the uniform production is paid a fair wage and provide safe and clean working conditions. Further more, a percentage of profits from every sale is contributed back to ocean clean up – paying people in poorer coastal communities to pick up plastic (as jobs) therefore reducing poverty and combatting the plastic pollution crisis.
