ACREW masterclass facilitators truly represented the pinnacle of practice in their respective fields.  Internationally renowned, our partners brought a wealth of experience to the table and lead on-trend, important and current sessions which inspired innovation and creativity. The masterclasses were designed to be practical and easily implemented so the impact of attending the session would be both immediate and significant.

The ACREW masterclasses also provided a vehicle for essential debriefing and discussion around new and changing regulations.  For captains, the opportunity to have this clearly explained by experts who were able to field any questions and facilitate meaningful discussions is of immeasurable value.

Each masterclass began and ended with a comfortable networking opportunity. The wonderful food served in our lounge and complimentary drinks from the bar were providing the perfect accompaniment to further topical discussions with fellow Captains and Heads of Departments.


The Taster lunch at ACREW Monaco Lounge promised to be an exciting experience, offering a delicious taster menu to hungry guests. Served between 12pm – 2pm each day this healthy, satisfying lunch has been the place to eat during the show.

Superyacht galley specialists Galleytek are flying in top Swiss chefs from Salvis who prepared and served complex mouth-watering dishes in a seemingly effortless manner. Galleytek and Salvis demonstrated to Captains, Stews and Chefs how a superyacht galley can produce large quantities of sensational quality food even in the confines of a small space on-board.  Shown first-hand how effectively this beautifully engineered equipment delivers on ease of use, speed and versatility to push the boundaries of quality food and quality service.

All the food got provided by leading Dutch superyacht provisioners NeKo Yacht Supply who pride themselves on the quality of their produce.  Each day they brought along one of their suppliers to talk about how they produce food of such high quality and to demonstrate some ideas about how to get the best from it. Lots of interactivity and of course tasting was an integral part of the fun! Anyone passionate about food enjoyed this immensely.
