  • Sexual harassment of seafarers

    ​ Sexual harassment of seafarers To All news 14 October 2018 As part of its members' assistance service, the PYA has seen a marked increase in the number of incidents of sexual harassment reported by crew members. The PYA has therefore conducted an industry survey to give crew members a voice to bring forward their own experiences of sexual harassment in yachting. Our results were reported at the Sea Changes Forum at the Monaco Yacht Show and produced some shocking statistics and personal testimony. A huge thank you to all the people who bravely reported information in our survey. What's next? The PYA in conjunction with other partners in this sector of the maritime industry are joining forces to continue to highlight this subject and to campaign on behalf of crew in establishing improvements in their working environment and in promoting better understanding of the issues raised. If you want to get involved then let us know - possibly consider becoming a PYA Councillor and representing colleagues in future forum dealing with such issues?

  • The Crew Network

    PRESS RELEASE: The Crew Network and V.Hospitality partner to announce a new “Interior Service Training” program for the luxury yacht industry. The Crew Network, in collaboration with V.Hospitality, has created and launched a comprehensive Yacht Interior Training seminar. The program, which can be highly customized to the client’s needs, is targeted to familiarize crew members with all aspects of service standards on-board yachts (silver service, cocktails and wine), while focusing on both skills as well as management aspects of the role of each crew member. With the help of veteran and qualified yacht trainers, we have customized service training modules to be offered on-board as well as through correspondence courses. Our experienced team comes from the yachting industry and understands the specifics associated with service on-board a luxury private yacht; as a result, their training processes are both adapted and highly effective in a yachting environment. If exceptional service is the goal, then turn to the experts for training and recruitment. Our trainers do make a difference and our unique training methods do guarantee results.

  • PYA at the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, Italy

    ​ PYA at the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, Italy To All news 10 July 2023 The PYA was invited by the Italian Trade Agency and the city of Genova , through Genova For Yachting , to attend the Ocean Race Grand Finale in Genoa, 10 days ago. The Ocean Race , formerly known as the Whitbread Round the World Race, is an iconic and prestigious sailing event that tests the teams like no other. It is said to be the longest and toughest professional sporting event in the world. Sailors circumnavigate the planet and this year’s edition of the race started from Alicante, Spain on January 15th 2023 and ended in Genoa, Italy on 1 st July 2023. The 11th Hour Racing Team won with 29 points. Congratulations to skipper Charlie Enright and his team for all their hard work and dedication. The program for guests included visiting shipyards such as AMICO , Sangiorgio Marine and Tankoa . It was the perfect occasion to meet captains, crew and companies from all over the world and we had some very meaningful conversations about the yachting industry. Two of the big themes from this year’s event were crew retention and education. With many companies seeking professional crews, there’s a big need for the industry to improve working conditions and the welfare of all crew members. We also discussed current crew issues with Captain Theodoros Antonellos, a member of the Hellenic Yacht Masters Club , which gave us additional insights into the current state of the industry, and we look forward to working more closely together in the near future. We want to say a big thank you to the city of Genova for hosting us at such an incredible event. See some highlights below from our visit to this year’s event.
