If you’re in the midst of a new build yacht project, or about to start and you’re considering assistance to crew your new vessel, Viking Crew can help you.
Since 2003, Viking Crew has been partnering with yacht companies across the world to provide full crewing for new build projects.
We can provide crew placement, crew employment, crew payroll, crew training and crew deployment, with our in-house expert team across Placement, Crewing and Deployment.
“We have been working with Viking Crew for many years. They provide high quality deck, technical and interior crews for the vessels we manage. They also assist us with our new build projects, covering a variety of yachts ranging in size from 60m to over 100m.”– Lürssen Yacht Management
Lui Anphin - Captain on M/Y SOLARIS & M/Y LUNA
“I have had the pleasure of working with Viking Crew during my tenure as the Build Captain on M/Y LUNA and SOLARIS.
During our collaboration, the team consistently demonstrated their professionalism and expertise in recruiting competent and suitable crew members for various positions in the interior, engineering, and on-deck departments. Their involvement in several successful recruitments showcased their ability to identify and present highly skilled candidates.
One of the key factors that set Viking Crew apart from other agencies was the long-lasting work relationship we developed over time. Their dedication to understanding our specific requirements and consistently delivering quality crew members made them a preferred choice among recruitment companies.
Based on my personal experience, I wholeheartedly recommend Viking Crew as a trusted agency for crew recruitment, be it for new projects or existing yachts. Their commitment to providing exceptional service and their ability to match the right talent with the right positions make them an invaluable partner in the yachting industry.”
Jim Hubber - Chief Engineer
“While serving as Chief Engineer on new builds from 80m to 140m in Holland, Germany and Italy, I have used Viking Crew on all occasions to find quality Engineering Officers, AVIT’s, ETO’s and Ratings. I’ve also worked as a Technical Superintendent for a large management company, regularly recruiting operational crew through Viking Crew.
I have always found the team a pleasure to deal with and much appreciated their attention to detail, particularly in reference checking, personal feedback on candidates and ensuring timeous responses to my many questions.
With Viking Crew also being a major player in Cruise Industry recruitment, I found many fantastic crew who were looking to make the move across to Yachting, but as yet had no experience – here again Viking Crew provided some excellent options when experienced Yacht crew were hard to come by.
I will certainly be using their services again and can happily recommend them to any vessel/company in need of such services.”
Paul Doherty - Owner's Technical Representative
“As Owner’s Technical Representative for two successive and successful 100m+ Superyacht new builds, Viking Crew offered a high quality of technical candidates and candidate screening. The crewing-up phase is an extraordinarily busy phase of a new construction project and being overwhelmed with applications was difficult to manage. This is where Viking Crew’s quality assurance paid dividends.
They took time to discuss the function requirements and person attributes to establish the hiring specification, resulting in only properly qualified and screened candidates being proposed. I have no hesitation in recommending Viking Crew for supporting new construction crew recruitment.”
Sven Janson - Captain
“When recruiting for a 110m+ M/Y new-build from northern Europe, Viking Crew provided us with first-class services throughout the initial manning phase and continued an excellent business relationship thereafter. The thorough candidate pre-selection, short notice response, and high availability helped in successfully meeting the tight schedule. I would not hesitate to recommend Viking Crew as an excellent source for high-quality recruitment.”
