Your passport to the superyacht industry
In order to work in the super yacht industry all crew are required to hold STCW 95 (Standards for Certification and Watchkeeping) MCA approved qualifications, which were developed by the International Maritime Organisation to provide a consistent standard of training for all seafarers.
