Director (Captain roles)
From 2006 to 2007 Tim was lucky enough to spend two years as a deckhand on MY Sai Ram and MY Leander, two excellent charter yachts. After leaving yachting, Tim moved up to London for a career in recruitment. Tim worked predominantly in the Finance and Accounting sector supplying senior staff to a variety of clients including Barclays, HSBC, Goldman Sachs and Thomson Reuters. Quay Crew was set up in 2013 to provide a different recruitment service to yachts. Tim looks after the Captain roles whilst managing the team which is now 8 strong. One of the things Tim loves about his role is offering career and mentoring advice to Captains and senior Deck Officers. He also enjoys writing yachting related blogs which attempt to educate and guide crew in their chosen career.

Phil discovered Superyachts when he was travelling in New Zealand so took himself to the South of France where he landed his yacht first role in 2014. After spending 6 years in the industry working on vessels ranging from 40m to 100m+ and gaining his OOW 3000 ticket, Phil decided to go shore side in 2021 and took a role with Quay Crew where he can continue to use his knowledge of the yachting industry. Prior to yachting he studied in Southampton where he achieved a 2:1 degree in Marketing & Advertising and then retrained to become a primary school teacher in 2011. He also spent some time working for a top FTSE 100 company managing their CRM systems. Phil works in our deck department as a Deck Consultant.
