She of the sea

She of the Sea holds the clear vision of a diverse, high performance industry, both within the corporate shoreside community and at sea. We see a cutting edge landscape, driven forward by the most talented individuals, regardless of gender.

What started in 2018 as a self-funded, grass roots passion project, born of necessity, has quickly evolved into united industry-wide action. 


Our 2020 launch of ‘The Pledge’ at the Superyacht Investor Conference was met with overwhelming enthusiasm and engagement, demonstrating that we, as an industry are perfectly positioned and ready to harness the widely sought-after benefits of diversity.
