The Crew Awards by ACREW is the first ever impartial, international awards programme recognising excellence in superyacht crew.

The Awards Ceremony will take place on 13th October in Nice – it promises to be a night to remember with 300 Captains and Crew from around the globe celebrating the best crew in the business.

Nominations and Voting are closed as of 31st August. All nominees receive a complimentary invitation to the awards ceremony with a value of 150€. All finalists receive up to 10 complimentary invitations to the awards ceremony (value 10 x 150€).

There are 17 Categories including every department on board, best charter and private yacht, as well as rewarding crew who excelled as leaders, team players, courage or work in sustainability. During the nomination phase we received 200 nominations, presenting some fantastic candidates. The voting process followed throughout August and over 10,000 votes have been cast. Based on the voting results, we have now narrowed down the candidates to the final 3 nominees per Award category.

Over the next month we will determine the winner for each award working with an extensive team of unbiased judges. ACREW has selected 20 judges, mostly comprising of captains and senior crew. These judges review the curriculum vitae, references and a video interview with each candidate.

Based on the extensive material provided small groups of judges deliberate each category.
