Crew Awards 2019

The Event

The Awards Ceremony will take place on 12th October in Nice and promises to be a night to remember with 500 Captains and Crew from around the globe celebrating the best in the business. This year there will be 20 Categories including every department onboard, best charter and private yacht, and various personality traits we believe should be celebrated. During the nomination phase, we will receive online nominations from fellow crew members. The voting process will follow and based on those results, we will narrow down the candidates to the final 3 nominees per Award category. The next phase is judging where we will determine the winner for each award working with an extensive team of unbiased judges, mostly comprising of captains and senior crew. The evening will consist of a champagne reception, a three-course dinner of French cuisine and a soiree, celebrating crew members receiving global recognition for their professionalism onboard.

The attendance of this event is by invitation only. All nominees and finalists will be automatically accepted. If you would like to attend this event, please register now and we will be in touch to confirm your attendance.

Axxess Marine and Crew Awards join forces to collect funds for the Amber Foundation

On the morning of 21st September, Axxess Marine will be holding their 3rd annual AXXESS MARINE CHARITY RIDE from Monaco to Cap Ferrat.  The charity ride departs StarsNBars Monaco, with a party held upon participant return, and is open to Superyacht crew, Captains, Owners and Industry partners. The ride coincides with the Monaco Yacht Show, which begins later that same week. Cyclists of all levels are invited to take part. Crew Challenges are strongly encouraged.

All of the proceeds raised from the ride will be donated to the Amber Foundation in the UK, which seeks to help homeless and unemployed young people in crisis to gain the confidence and skills to find direction in life, employment and accommodation. Each registration for the ride includes cycling jersey, breakfast, lunch and a party post ride, as well as a day pass for the Monaco Yacht Show (value €300). Personal ride coaches and support teams guide participants throughout the route. Road bike and cycling gear rental available for participants. 

Shortly after, on 12th October, the annual Crew Awards Ceremony takes place in Le Palais de la Méditerranée, Nice. The Crew Awards team have decided to use this event, attended by some 500 guests, to further complement the Axxess Marine fundraiser. To this end, we will be asking every guest if they will be willing to donate a suggested amount of €30 to support the Amber Foundation. 

There will be two options for collecting donations:

• Prior to Crew Awards via

• On 12th October via Credit card

After totalling what we receive through both sources, we will present the final results with a cheque to the Amber Foundation on the night of the ceremony. With so many worthy charities to choose from, you might ask why we have chosen this specific charity to support and how does it tie in with the Superyacht world? Your funds will enable a deserving young person to complete an STCW course – something that today they could possibly only dream of! 

Crew Awards and Axxess Marine look forward to seeing many of you at both events, and we thank you sincerely for your anticipated support!

The Venue

The Iconic 5 Star Luxury Hyatt Regency Nice commands a prominent position on the Promenade des Anglais across from Lido beach and glittering waters of the Mediterranean Sea. Behind its 1920s façade sits a splendidly seamless five-star hotel that oozes flawless decadence and an air of something extra special. It attracts the world’s royalty and is very much the pinnacle of French elegance and historical riches of the French Riviera. The Hyatt Regency offers the set and stage for ACREW’s international Crew Awards to take place on 12th October 2019.

This plush, art deco style hotel started life in the roaring 1920s as a casino and 1,000-room theatre where the likes of Charlie Chaplin and Maurice Chevalier would play. The iconic hotel façade is a listed monument and was preserved for the hotel’s grand reopening in 2004. The Hyatt Regency’s Casino is very highly regarded and regularly plays host to some of the world’s biggest stars.

At the Hyatt Regency guests can lounge in luxury at the private beach club opposite or visit the indoor and outdoor pools or spa. On the terrace guests can indulge in sun-kissed breakfasts and evening cocktails overlooking the sea or impressive mountain views.

The Theme

Crew Awards have decided to add a little intrigue to this years Crew Awards Ceremony by asking you all to come along with a mask of your choice to join us for our Bal Masqué.

As with last year, the dress code will be black tie and evening dress, but we would love to see you complementing this by wearing a Venetian, Mardi Gras or other type of mask to add to the fun. Don’t worry though, you won’t be obliged to wear your mask during the entire evening; we expect many of you will want to unmask yourselves and your dancing skills after dinner on the dance floor!

Please RSVP via email to if you would like to attend this event.
