  • I have been using Bespoke Crew for the past few years. They have done a wonderful job and have presented me with first class crew to choose from and have not inundated me with an inbox full of candidates. The backup and follow up also has been exceptional. I highly recommend Bespoke and their staff as an excellent choice for crew placement.

  • I was first introduced to Bespoke Crew when I was personally called for a reference check. As we know, the industry is small, and we are all somehow connected by way of some social interaction, and checking references, especially verbal references, is of utmost importance when trying to find that “perfect fit” for your yacht. I immediately knew that the friendly, trusted voice on the end was doing their job diligently, trying to find that ‘perfect fit’ for another Captain, and I respected that. We” have been working closely with Bespoke Crew for nearly three years and have only positive feedback to contribute to their professional service. Most, if not all, the crew has served on a longevity basis, all of whom fit in very well with our crew dynamic. I can highly recommend Bespoke Crew for your crew placement needs.

They truly understand what you are looking for and never try to 'throw anything out there.' With my crazy schedule, they are good about chasing me up when need be and never letting anything fall by the wayside. There is always open, honest transparency, and I appreciate that so much. It is a big relief that there is such a consistent, all-star crew agency out there
