Yachting Salaries Guideline 2023 | YPI Crew

Article by ONBOARD Magazine

At the forefront of crew recruitment, YPI Crew has utilised their unique position in the market place to create their annual in-depth industry salary report

After two exceptional years of dealing with Covid 19 and the impact it had on recruiting, 2022 was a very upbeat and fast-paced year for yacht crew placement. The most
significant trend was the extension of scheduled or rotational leave to positions outside of the engine room and the bridge.

The search and placement market has changed and crew are increasingly seeking a harmonious work-life balance. Although yachting salaries and leave packages are generally competitive, we have found that yachts need to be increasingly flexible to attract the best crew. Flexibility with regards to leave has become a key factor for all departments and allows for a larger pool of candidates who are fully committed to the yacht, its programme and owner.

Both the Deck/Bosuns and the Interior/Galley departments have witnessed a steady trend towards increased leave packages. For example, Senior Stews are now looking for a minimum of 90 days leave and 95% of the Chief Stews are looking for full rotation.

Many Stew Head of Departments have come to realise that they too can benefit from scheduled or rotational leave that has in the past been reserved for the Engineers or Officer/Captains Departments.

Additionally, and in order to compete with the larger yachts, an important number of yachts under 70 metres are now also considering increased leave packages to secure top crew.

Please note that the salaries below (in euros) are an indication only of starting salaries and that the actual salary will vary depending on multiple factors; job specific skills, professional qualifications and experience.

YPI CREW now offers a bespoke service for our yacht clients to assist with salary reviews and comparative analysis.
