ACREW is preparing an improved 6th edition of the Crew Awards for 2023! This is what we can tell you about it

We look back in awe at a successful 5th edition of the Crew Awards themed “A Knight to Remember” and we are now busy preparing an improved 6th edition with, of course, a new theme. This year the Crew Awards will once again take place in Porto Montenegro from October 20th – 22th and will have the vintage theme “Old Hollywood”.

The Crew Awards have been developed to reward crew that have proven themselves to be the very best at their job. The Awards will be both a personal achievement and an industry-wide recognition of professional excellence. Take a look at the after movie to get a glimpse of what the Crew Awards 2022 was like or watch the full ceremony here!

Following feedback from Superyacht Captains and Crew, we have made the decision to slightly adjust the Crew Awards process by removing the voting phase in order to ensure that all nominees have a fair chance of winning. This edition of the Crew Awards will feature 14 award categories that are designed to recognize the efforts and dedication of all onboard departments in the superyacht industry. Our qualified and enthusiastic jury, who will be announced in the last week of February, will judge all nominees. Nominations will open on March 1.

These are the 14th award categories for the Crew Awards of 2023:

THE BEST SUPERYACHT CREW AWARD

THE BEST CAPTAIN MASTER UNLIMITED AWARD 

THE BEST CAPTAIN MASTER 3000GT AWARD 

THE BEST CAPTAIN MASTER 500GT AWARD
