We are changing the face of superyacht recruitment with the imminent launch of Döhle Crew Connect, a free portal database that gives affiliated and registered Captains direct access to junior crew.  As the industry evolves, so must we.

Those junior crew who opt into the database may then be contacted by the Captains, or their representatives, directly with employment opportunities, without intervention from our Recruitment department and at no cost. 

Döhle Crew Connect’s database is growing daily and will be accessible in the coming weeks. 

For more information and details on how to register, please see the below FAQ.

What is Döhle Crew Connect?

Döhle Crew Connect is a free portal database that gives affiliated and registered Captains direct access to junior crew. The Captains, or their representatives, will have the facility to search, using multiple criteria, for junior yacht crew at no cost. Those junior crew who opt into the database may then be contacted by the registered users directly, without intervention from our Recruitment department.

Why are you launching this free service?

We’ve noticed as the industry grows, crew numbers increase and a greater focus is put upon recruiting via social media, that the recruitment process itself requires changing to remain effective. As the industry evolves, so must we. By implementing Döhle Crew Connect alongside our existing recruitment services, we aim to increase prospects for employment for junior crew and also allow the Döhle Yacht Crew team greater capacity to provide a more in-depth service in the provision of senior crew.

What ranks are included in the database?

The ranks that are currently searchable within the Döhle Crew Connect database are:

  • Deckhand
  • Lead Deckhand
  • Deckhand/Carpenter
  • Dive Instructor
  • Junior Engineer
  • Assistant Engineer
  • Junior Steward/ess
  • 3rd Steward/ess
  • Laundry Personnel
  • Crew Chef

Why are just ‘junior crew’ included?

We have chosen the above ranks because these are the most populous within our database and therefore the most in need of exposure.

Are Döhle Yacht Crew retaining their existing recruitment services?

We will continue to maintain all of our existing recruitment services and our master database. As Döhle Crew Connect is an additional service, our recruitment team will still work on junior positions as required by our clients; likewise, given the greater detail and expertise required regarding more senior ranks, these will remain exclusively with a trained recruitment professional.
