Crew demand more educational events (9 April 2014)

Each year more events appear on the crew calendar, resulting in an overcrowded market and one that makes it hard to pinpoint exactly how these events are benefitting today’s crew. So, in a survey on, we asked crew to name their favourite events, explain why and what types of events they wanted to see more of in the future.
The boat shows make up such a large percentage of the superyacht industry’s events, yet only 55 per cent of crew who took the survey said they liked the boat show season. It could be that the lack of overwhelming support is due to one scenario crew have no choice but to put up with on an often hourly basis during the show season; 45 per cent of respondees admitted they had concerns about the numbers of people viewing their crew cabin during tours of the yacht.
