Decision power

30 July 2015
A very interesting read fromThe Superyacht Owner , on the role crew have in a yard period. Read an excerpt here and for the full story, head to theThe Superyacht Owner .  

When an owner’s superyacht is in the shipyard, its crew plays a crucial role.  The Crew Report ’s Superyacht Golden Ticket crew survey revealed that 57.3 per cent of crew are heavily involved in their yachts’ refits while a meager 1.8 per cent of crew have no involvement. Moreover, 45.3 per cent of crew told  The Crew Report  they have influence in where an owner’s yacht goes for its refit. There’s certainly a bit of power in the crews’ hands, so we think it only fair to share with you their experiences of being in the shipyard with owners’ assets.
