Welcome to the latest SYR View From The Desk

If you would like to receive this update as a monthly email register here.

We’ve reached the midpoint of 2024 and yachting really has bounced back since the relative quiet of last year. We’re seeing a strong growth among our brokerage and yacht management customer base to further bolster a busy yacht design and build sector.

The recruitment team sit close to capacity but have welcomed a number of brand new clients to the SYR network in the past weeks, showing further exciting growth and brand awareness in the international yacht market.

Looking to the coming months, July and August are historically some of our busiest months and with a strong increase in new roles in the past week, it looks like this year will be no different. With client visits and international tours ahead, we’re excited to be out in the market once again.

As always, we’re here to offer advice and practical recruitment support so if you would like to know more about our services, discuss your career or how we can help grow your business, please do get in touch.

Design, engineering and yachtbuilding are hot markets right now. Particularly in yachtbuilding, there’s a sustained need for talent across most trades, mainly within the higher value end of the market.

Both UK and Europe-wide, we’re working closely with a number of direct clients and recruitment partners to keep shipyards well staffed and able to achieve their own targets.
