We look to make the yachting one of the safest and most attractive places to work. 

Sculpting or mentoring persons on their career path is highly rewarding. I feel wilsonhalligan is not just a crew agency but a consultancy service where we work in partnership with the crew-member and yacht for the long term. Actively encouraging crew to make personal contact with us and ask our highly experienced team for advice to ensure the right decision is made for your career.

Engaging with new and existing crew is a real pleasure for the team and I. Ensuring crew are well trained before joining yachting and then continue to develop personally and professionally by recommending the next step. We have signed this pledge so crew remain in yachting for a long career.
