Why rotational crew and is it more expensive?
SeaNet was one of the pioneers of the rotational crew concept and increasingly we are seeing that it’s becoming the industry norm due to the advantages it offers owners. On a typical charter yacht the crew can be working on-board for six-seven months consecutively, resulting in fatigue and often people choosing to leave mid-season. At SeaNet, we offer our crews a 12-month contract in a rotational work scheme, with one month on and one month off. This not only attracts the best crews in the world, but it also ensures crew retention and the best experience for each owner. From a financial perspective, this is only an increase of 35% on the usual crew costs but the service experience is far better.
