A Crew Membership Programme to Promote Excellence Onboard. ACREW has been delivering Captain and crew learning through workshops at events in superyacht destinations for over 4 years now and has learnt a lot about the needs of crew.
Through extensive conversations with Captains and crew, we have designed a membership programme that keeps everything crew love about ACREW free and accessible to all but in addition, also provides many fantastic additional benefits for both Captains, crew and the superyachts.
For a modest fee, the Professional and Superyacht Memberships, will deliver extra incentives, discounts and savings. We have really enjoyed, designing and creating all of the elements of the Professional and Superyacht membership tiers. These include amongst many others, an online learning library, and a survey platform, where crew can earn money for having their opinions heard on a range of Superyacht topics.
Whether you join for free or a via the fee route, ACREW United will be of great benefit to you, as you plot your course through the Superyacht industry.

Full List of Benefits
ACREW events are based around workshops led by industry experts. There are also amazing social activities including lunches and happy hours, live music, pub quizzes, obstacle challenge races and not-to-be-missed parties!
All ACREW Members are entitled to a free consultation and a documented financial plan to help maximise the benefits from the period of high income, low expenses that working onboard brings.
ACREW has developed a series of videos that outline how an informal mentoring style can be easily implemented in superyachting. The videos include guidance for both mentors and mentees, as well as outlining the benefits for all.
Record of Learning
All ACREW members will therefore have the facility as part of their online profile to download a record of all of the workshops they have attended at ACREW events.
Superyacht Surveys, developed by ACREW, allow crew to be paid cash in to the bank to complete surveys on a range of superyacht issues.
The online learning platform includes video and learning content for all yacht departments. Professional Members will receive a unique log-in to the platform where they can complete and record unlimited elessons.
Training courses will be available on-site, in shipyards and marinas. Partnering with trainers and destinations allows ACREW to make courses available where crew are and at suitable times in the season. Professional Members and Superyacht Members qualify for significant discounts.
Special Partner Offers
ACREW Partners have developed their own offers for ACREW Professional and ACREW Superyacht Members. Significant discounts on Nautilus membership, UAM service fees, mobile phone tariffs and currency exchange are included.
ACREW Marina Loyalty offers significant discounts and exclusive benefits on berthing in excellent independent marinas in great destinations. For example, your seventh night free when six are booked.
The industry is waking up to the true value of crew as the primary creators of the guest experience. Having a supportive membership programme accessible for all and giving back real value to crew is an exciting prospect for the industry.Abi McGrath, Managing Partner, ACREW
