Why Yoa

Doing Things

“YOA is a breath of fresh air and just what we needed. The yachting industry is saturated with agencies and job/crew search websites, all bearing pros and cons…”

Josh Mangakahia - Chief Officer

We are Yachties
Like You

Our team has worked all over the world on some of the most prestigious superyachts. We understand your frustrations when it comes to finding crew and jobs.

The industry previously known as Yachting has evolved into Super yachting, Mega yachting and now incredibly Giga yachting. We believe that recruiting and traditional ways of thinking about how to place crew and find work on these yachts needs to follow suit.

We’ve listened, and continue to listen, to you, countless colleagues and friends about what you think would make finding crew and work more efficient, enjoyable and cost effective today.

Why Yoa - Best Yacht Recruitment Agency

The relationships we build with one another during the time spent in this wonderful, sometimes crazy industry is what binds us.

YOA believes there is 3 degrees of separation between all yachties. We have tapped into this and created technology that allows us all to link into an invaluable network . It also allows you to keep in touch with friends and former crew mates in the industry (or remain hidden if you choose).

There’s more to yachties than a 2 page CV so we allow people to showcase not only their skills and experience but their personalities as well. This helps employers choose the right fit and for crew to stand out from the crowd.
