Your Charter Crew
Seafarer's crew are highly trained, dedicated professionals. They not only bring individual skills to the yacht's operation, but also the versatility to utilize them in varying and ever-changing conditions and locations. You set the pace. If you prefer discreet service on our yacht where the crew are unobtrusive but always available if needed, the captain, adept at assessing the requirements of each charter, will instruct the crew accordingly. For those who would like to be on more informal terms, you will find that the yacht's crew will react accordingly, but without compromising levels of service.Seafarer's crew is able to offer formal and impeccable onboard service. As a team they are flexible and experts at adapting to your own personal style. The crew is there to please only you and they delight in going beyond the call of duty to ensure that your time spent onboard is memorable in every way.
