YotHop Bespoke Yacht Recruitment Services

Due to high demand from Captains and employers YotHop is now offering Bespoke Yacht Recruitment Services.

Fear not! YotHop is not changing its ethos of being a self service website. We are still free for all! You can still post a free job and the applications come direct to you. Also, you can still search the free open database for crew and message whoever you like.

However, Due to high demand and our rapid growth we are now offering the captains / employers a bespoke service. We will Interview and reference check all the candidates and only send you candidates that we would personally recommend.

Please get in touch with Jodie if this is something of interest to you. You can find our recruitment terms here

I have been in yachting for 27 years, and have been in charge of finding crew for 24. I have worked with agencies all over the world. Many of the agencies in the old days would send you Cannon Fodder, just kept sending you CVs until you picked one just to get them to stop. Every once in a great while, you find somebody who is willing to listen to exactly what you want, then go out and try to find it.

From the moment I started talking with Sue, I could tell she would be perfect for us. She has since worked absolutely tirelessly to find us exactly what we are looking for and has filled one of our jobs.

As an extremely particular (picky!) client, we have a ridiculously long and complicated list of requirements. I can say without any hesitation that Sue Smither is PATIENT, diligent, knowledgeable and kind, with an upbeat personality and positive attitude. She understands crew dynamics, superyacht owners’ preferences, and the challenges of living and working on board.

Sue is a bright star in my life, great at dealing with stressful situations, as helpful as they come, and with GREAT customer service and attention to detail. If only she were still in yachting! I would hire her immediately and never let her go.

I highly recommend YotHop, I have nothing but praise for this company.
