Each week as we approach the close of the Superyacht Golden Ticket crew survey (which closes in May 2015), we will be bringing you a look at our prize donors, what they’re offering the winning crew and hear from them on why they’re offering their selected prize. And remember – these are just some of the 40+ prizes worth over 60,000 euros, that your crew could win in a single treasure chest.??

Gym Company Marine: the WaterRower Natural

“Working 84 per cent of the muscle mass, rowing has long been recognised as the perfect aerobic pursuit, with naturally smooth and flowing movements that don't tax the joints but do boost the heart rate,” says Ed Thomas, director and founder of Gym Company Marine.

“The WaterRower Natural is hand-crafted in solid ash and stained honey oak for consistency of colour. Ash is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability. Each machine has been hand-finished with Danish oil giving a deep lustre and warmth to the wood so it will look fantastically stylish in your home gym.”

Key features:

  • Easy-to-use S4 Monitor
  • Wood absorbs sound and vibration to make it silent and unobtrusive
  • Surprisingly compact – a full foot shorter than the nearest competitor
  • Stores with ease – simply store it up on end in the size of a dining room chair

“We are donating to offer one lucky crew an opportunity to keep fit on board using a machine which is sympathetic to all levels of fitness and offers a natural and enjoyable exercise experience.

We got involved in survey to gather information on the market to help improve our crew-focused service offering. Engaging with crew is the most important part of our business plan moving forward,” says Thomas.

“Crew should obviously take the survey to be in with a chance of winning the prizes! But also, it helps us as vendors improve our services, which makes crews’ lives easier in the long run.”

COAST New Zealand: Weekend and cabin bag, classic canvas collection

“Our prize really offers the ultimate set of luggage for any crewmember,” says COAST New Zealand. “We have selected to donate this as the range is designed to withstand the marine elements, meaning it will stay in great condition year after year and it’s soft, yet sturdy and robust make-up ensures it is easy to stow when not in use. Stylish, elegant and practical it may well become the luggage you can’t do without!

“Being involved in the survey means we can have a unique opportunity to gain an insight in to the opinions and knowledge of our customers – both crew and, in turn, guests. It is feedback and information that is truly valuable and important to us. By getting involved, you are ensuring that suppliers like us can address issues, ensure the industry has access to the right sort of products and that product types are more suitable for your needs. It gives you a chance to let us know what really matters to you.”

Struik & Hamerslag Yacht Interiors: iPhone 6 Plus

Struik & Hamerslag Yacht Interiors is giving away an Iphone 6 Plus. As it is for the Superyacht Golden Ticket survey, what else could we do than give away the golden iPhone!” says Koen van der Well, business development at Struik & Hamerslag.

“We as a specialised interior outfitting company are very keen to stay in contact with the crew. It is the crew who live and works permanently within the custom interiors we manufacture, not only for the owner, but also for them.

“A survey like this is a great way to get feedback and learn!” adds van der Well. “So fill in the questionnaire, help the industry further while grabbing the opportunity to win – among other great stuff – this golden iPhone 6 Plus.”
