After working closely with Bespoke Crew over the past 3 Seasons for permanent and temporary crew placement, they have become our go-to agent for crew. We have been highly satisfied with Bespoke’s high caliber of service, which has been very professional yet personable. We have found they genuinely listen to and understand the requirements expressed for the crew sought and deliver only highly suitable candidates that meet the specific experience level, necessary skillset, and personal demeanor desired.
Brianna Stenhouse - Chief Stewardess
Bespoke were fantastic from start to finish; they listened to exactly what I was looking for and completely met all expectations, finding me my perfect boat. Truly a cut above the rest. Claire was always on the end of the phone offering support and has continued to check in since. I couldn’t recommend Bespoke enough and I will continue to use them onboard for my recruitment needs.
Emma Cottrell - Chief Stewardess
I had a fantastic experience working with Frankie. She found my CV, reached out to me, and I was successful in landing the first role she presented me with, which she ensured met my needs. She is communicative, friendly, and professional; most importantly, in a recruiter-candidate relationship, she comes across as very honest. When I am ready for my next opportunity, and if I take on any recruitment on board, I know who to call. I look forward to working with Frankie again.
Helena Sanguinetti - Purser
I had a great experience with Claire from Bespoke Crew! She’s super helpful, always checks-in, and answers all of my questions. She helped me land my new role on an amazing yacht with great opportunities. I’m so happy for all of the support, I would love to work together with her again in the future! Would really recommend Bespoke Crew.
Linn Sundqvist - Stewardess
I had the luck to have Claire contact me from Bespoke Crew Recruitment. 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.
Zoé Meeuwens - Stewardess
This is the first crew agent where we feel listened to and not just sent 10+ candidates that vaguely fit our requirements and with the candidates that we hire through Bespoke Crew we always get great longevity. We have complete faith and trust in the Bespoke Crew team, so much so that they are the only crew agent we work with.
Ruben Mejier - Chief Officer
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.
Scott Miller - Captain
It was such a pleasure working with Bespoke Crew! Thank you, Claire, for your swift responses and for providing us with good quality crew that fits our specific requirements in a short time frame! I look forward to working with them in the future.
Tina Floegal - Chief Stewardess
I wouldn’t work with any other crew agent. The team at Bespoke Crew listens to exactly what we require in a candidate and delivers solid, carefully selected, and well-vetted crew. 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
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 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
It’s been a pleasure dealing with the Bespoke Crew team ….thank you for discovering the right individuals for our program. We greatly appreciate the care is taken when introducing quality candidates to us and the effort to ensure a good long-term fit.
Len Beck - Captain
Bespoke Crew and their team have been a great help in finding the right people for our Island. Even though land-based and a very remote location, Frankie was able to forward excellent candidates competent for the roles. Bespoke Crew is very responsive, responsible, and highly reliable. They stand behind their candidates 100%. Excellent background checks and written and verbal references were provided. A great database of staff. Highly recommended!
Ana White - General Manager - Private Island in the Caribbean
We are the managers in charge of a 25M sailing yacht and used Bespoke Crew to employ a new captain. Frankie at Bespoke crew was excellent. She acted quickly, provided regular updates, and produced an excellent list of highly qualified candidates. We placed the captain and would highly recommend her and Bespoke Crew.
