Superyacht crew training provider UKSA and finance managers BlackStar Wealth Management today announced a strategic partnership to build a global platform for the development of professional crew training within the superyacht sector. The partnership will also fund additional skills training and placement opportunities for today's superyacht crew.

Emma Baggett, UKSA cadetship manager, added: "BlackStar's funding and support of the cadetship scheme will be instrumental in attracting and retaining high quality cadets. This is an important step forward in delivering the best possible training and support for UKSA students in the professional yachting industry and in developing a collaborative approach, which pools expertise and further increases opportunities for UKSA cadets."

Craig Humphreys, director at BlackStar Wealth Management, commented: "Today's announcement of our partnership with UKSA is a further example of our continuing investment in the yachting industry and of our commitment to providing young people with opportunity to learn and develop further skills."

This news comes shortly after the launch of BlackStar's Captain's Family Office - another step taken by the wealth management company to support today's superyacht crew.
