Hill Robinson and Sanlorenzo Academy seek yachts to take students

24 March 2021

We are seeking yachts in the Ligurian Region (due to travel restrictions) who can take our students on and provide an opportunity for Deck/Interior role experience under the relevant Head of Department during normal crew working hours.

Note that yachts are not expected to pay the students – this is part of an Internship Placement which will assist them in attaining necessary hours towards graduation from the Sanlorenzo Crew Academy.

Students are between the ages of 24-35yrs, have their own accommodation, are trained across all areas of working on-board, plus have all necessary qualifications.

While the Academy benefits greatly from your kind assistance, we also hope to benefit your current crew and yacht should you be willing to take on an extra hand (or two!) in preparation for the coming season.

The dates of availability of our students is between 20th April – 31st May.

Please contact Peta Rook at Hill Robinson Italia for further information:

Yacht Job Scams on the Rise

Over the last couple of months, the PYA's Member Assistance Service (MAS) has received a number of reports from crew who have been approached by scammers offering false jobs onboard yachts. Along with these direct reports, there has also been a number of incidents reported via the Yacht Crew Facebook Groups.
