Emma HarbordChief Stew / 50m MY & 55m MY
As a former yachting colleague of Caroline, I had no doubt that she would deal with my crew needs professionally and quickly (time was of the essence!) With their in depth knowledge of me and the yacht, they provided me with the CVs of 2 candidates, a couple, and within 48 hours from the initial phone call we had hired them. They are a great match for the crew & the yacht and the whole process was not only quick but painless too!! I have worked with them again on my next yacht too.

Quay Crew are a refreshing change from the usual agencies. I actually met Tim and spent 45 minutes telling him about the position and explaining exactly what I wanted. I received 3 excellent CV’s and a detailed cover letter providing further information into each crew members experience and why they were good for the boat. A professional yet personal service and I shall be recommending them where possible!
Daniel BakerChief Officer / MY Leander 75m
Leander have used Quay Crew since the company’s inception in 2013. The team at Quay Crew rigorously vet their candidates and only attempt to place them on suitable yachts, they are always sympathetic towards the yachts needs and do not waste time by sending their entire portfolio of CV’s for a given position. Leander has had several crew members placed by Quay Crew and they have all been a good fit for the yacht. We have been more than happy with the service provided by Quay Crew and highly recommend them for your crew needs
James StockdaleCaptain and ex Chief Officer / MY Belongers & MY Chopi Chopi
I was first introduced to Quay Crew during the new build of MY Chopi Chopi, the 80m CRN. We gave Tim the brief of finding 5 of the junior deck crew, each of which had a very specific set of requirements and skills. Tim listened to exactly what we wanted and what we were offering, presenting only a handful of candidates that were right for the role. The service was always efficient and communication was clear and precise. Since our first introduction nearly 2 years ago, Quay Crew have always provided me with good candidates and they are now at the top of my list for crew agents. I know that if I get a CV from Quay Crew, there’s a very high chance we will employ that person. I have continued to use Quay Crew successfully on my next yacht as Captain too.
Angus JackCaptain / MY A2 47m
Working with Quay crew has been a pleasure from start to finish. They listened to exactly what we wanted and submitted genuinely suitable and interested candidates who were all of an excellent standard. We particularly liked the thoroughness of the reference checking with quotes from referees included in the Quay Crew biographies on each candidate. Quay Crew are our number one agent and I can’t recommend them enough.
Neil EvansCaptain / MY Capri, ex MY Titania
I have been working with Quay Crew now for a few years and have always found them to be both professional and adept at supplying us with crew candidates who both fit the description of what we are looking for and ensuring that the crew put forward for any positions are of the highest calibre possible. I have also found Caroline and Tim to be great to talk to you when explaining what we are looking for and ensuring that our expectations are always exceeded. I would happily recommend them to any other yacht or crew member and look forward to receiving some great candidates whenever we are next looking to fill a position onboard.
Captain Richard David/ MY Ocean Victory 140m
Tim approached me in early 2013 and introduced Quay Crew with the aim of assisting Project Victory with its initial crew recruitment during the final year of the build process. Quay Crew made multiple placements on board across various key positions including both Chief Officers and various other ranks throughout all departments on board. Quay Crew stood out from other agencies from the start by taking a considerable amount of time to find out what I wanted, not just in terms of job titles and qualifications, but also personality so as to fit in with the ethos on board. Recruiting an entire crew for a new build project is a very challenging task for various reasons but Quay Crew demonstrated a clear understanding of the intricacies and variables involved that made the decision making process on who to employ that much simpler. They worked quickly and efficiently and were flexible when required. They only sent a few candidates for each position and all of the CVs sent fitted the brief well so I didn’t waste my limited time reading about unsuitable candidates. I also liked the detailed cover letter and extensive reference checking. I can recommend Quay Crew to any Captain or organisation looking to recruit yacht crew and look forward to working with them in the future moving forward.
Nic PowerChief Officer / MY Space & MY Serenity J
Having used Quay Crew successfully on several occasions over the past few years, when involved in a new build needing 8 crew across all departments Quay Crew were the first agency we called. Matching candidates to job specs and spending time to find the right character fit gave Quay Crew the edge and hence why more candidates were supplied through them than any other. Thanks to Caroline and Tim @ Quay Crew.
