The crew is the key to the success of any yacht. We have Good, Experienced, qualified crew.

Alfa Yachts have Good, Experienced, qualified and well-motivated crew is the key to the success of any yacht, and they also represent a significant portion of the annual running costs. At Alfa Yachts we understand the importance of placing and retaining good crew onboard.

With the introduction of the new ILO Marine Lab our Convention affecting commercial yachts and various national administrations now taking a keen interest in Yacht Crew taxes and social charges Alfa Yachts have introduced Alfa Yachts Crew Services in order to provide a robust and legal mechanism for crew employment.

Working with Alfa Yachts Crew Services the management department provides comprehensive crew support and supervision in the day to day operation of the yacht.

With the ratification of the International Lab our Organization’s (ILO) Maritime Lab our Convention 2006 (MLC) Alfa Yachts has set up Crew Services in order to ensure that all the requirements under these new laws are complied with. The MLC was ratified in August 2012 and will be enforceable August 2014. One of the key requirements of the MLC is that all crew be given the opportunity to have social security payments deducted from their salary at source.

Finally, many of the owner and yacht owning companies of the yachts managed by Alfa Yachts wish to distance themselves from the employment of crewmembers. Alfa Yachts Crew Services provide this distance as they would be the Employer of the crew.
