  • I have worked with Bespoke Crew for a few years now, from her helping me find positions to helping me fill them. The agents take time to really understand our needs and only send the best candidates forward. They send detailed profiles from their conversations with the crew, which really helps us to get an understanding of the candidate beforehand. They are not a typical agency who puts crew forward and forgets, they still keep in contact and follow up to check both parties are happy with the overall performance and if we have any concerns. Fantastic service all around; I would highly recommend using the Bespoke Crew. Thank you for everything

  • I first spoke to Jacob from Bespoke Crew in my first few weeks of dock walking near Antibes. The first call was extremely helpful; and he took an interest in my own background, qualifications, and experience. We then discussed the position I applied for in great detail. I am now secure in that role we discussed and after five months in I couldn't be happier with the yacht I am on, and the crew I am with.

As a greenie, I heard it would be hard starting in the industry, and only on my second day of searching for a job, Claire told me about me three amazing options. One of the yachts got in contact with me, and the next day and everything fell into place. She takes time to get to know you and find the job that would make you happy on all terms. Thank you, Claire, for sticking by me the trust I have in you is immense.

The team has placed multiple candidates across the interior, deck, engineering, and galley. Their excellent communication and high level of professionalism, it makes them a joy to work with.

    Savannah Squire - Chief Stewardess

    Bespoke Crew
  • 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 social interaction. 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 worked 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.

    Aldon Beukman - Captain

    Bespoke Crew
  • Bespoke has hands down become my number 1 crew agency. The agents I have worked with have all been extremely responsive and friendly and have made a real effort to build a relationship with you. 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

    Brielle Crumpler - Chief Stewardess
