Starfish Crew and Superyacht References join Nautilus

The two superyacht crew agencies have partnered with marine crew union Nautilus International…

Starfish Crew and Superyacht References have joined Nautilus International’s yacht partner programme. The initiative aims to give agencies, owners, employers and regulatory authorities the opportunity to engage in an ongoing dialogue with the crew union.

“During my yachting career, I saw it all. Unpaid salaries, vessels taking advantage of crew in any way possible, tragic accidents, breach of contract agreements. The list goes on,” says Jamila García Lillo, CEO, Starfish Crew. “My husband, a superyacht captain, has been a member [of Nautilus International] for a few years, so I know how advantageous being a member [of a union] is first-hand.”

Starfish Crew provides support, consultancy and training for crew, with a focus on Spanish-speaking vessels.

Superyacht References is a newly formed company focused on providing detailed references for crew. It supports the yacht recruitment process by checking references, confirming professional certifications, and verifying IDs.

“We look forward to working together to providing a full professional service to crew in the superyacht industry,” said Nautilus strategic organiser, Laura Molineux.
