The breath-taking Mediterranean yacht charter destination – Malta has recently inaugurated its very first crew recruitment agency, based within existing yacht service company, Vella Marine Malta. The top UK-based superyacht directory, Yachting Pages, helps introduce it industry-wide.
Captain Edwin Vella from the family-run Vella Marine Malta said, “We already have a very reputable shipping and yacht services company here at Vella Marine. As a superyacht captain myself, and with regular contact with so many other captains, crew and owners, it made sense to introduce recruitment services to our portfolio of superyacht services, too.
“Now, we can help with everything from fuel, customs clearance and refit management to a complete crew recruitment service. This has been lacking in Malta until now, and with our extensive network of high-calibre international clients, we hope that 2013 proves to be a fantastic opening year for this new sector of our business.”
Kerry O’Neill, marketing executive with Yachting Pages, the leading superyacht directory said, “We are thrilled that Vella Marine Malta has chosen to reach out to the superyacht world with our help.
“We’re confident that plenty of superyacht crew in the region and internationally will choose to seek their next superyacht position through Captain Edwin and Vella Marine Malta – and that many captains in turn will come to him for advice and crew recommendations.
“At Yachting Pages we’re about to deliver over 60,000 print directories worldwide, and of course the Yachting Pages’ website never sleeps. The website’s about to get even better too, with a site upgrade launching this summer and improved review and rating functionality. Read our reviews, then choose the best recruiter for you.”
Yachting Pages is a hub for superyacht crew recruiters. With the Antibes Yacht Show running from 18th – 21st April in 2013, the offices of recruiters on the French Riviera such as Recrewt, Crew Unlimited, YPI Crew, Camper & Nicholsons International, The Crew Network, Viking and Monaco Hotel and Marine Consulting will be busier than ever.
