We are thrilled to announce that our Superyacht Supper Club is back!

There is just over a month to go before our next Superyacht Supper Club, kindly sponsored and hosted by our friends over at CMC Marine, and tickets are going fast. The event takes place on Wednesday 12th July, from 6pm, in Poole.

The Dorset location has meant that we’ve attracted a whole new selection of attendees from right across the South Coast and with CMC laying on some fantastic food and drinks at their new site it should be a great event.

If you’ve not already signed up then please register here >>

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, do get in touch.

CURTIS | Senior Recruitment Consultant – Skilled Trades |

It’s no secret that finding good people, particularly within skilled trades, is difficult for most companies across the superyacht sector. There is a lot of competition in a small market of trained and experienced people. Through the work we are doing at SYR, we are building up strong candidate pools for our customers across all areas of the industry.

There has been an increase in requests from outside of yacht production/boatbuilding in the UK recently, working on aftersales/warranty and servicing of the leisure marine market. In the EU, we continue the supply of skilled trades for various yachting brands enabling them to meet tight production deadlines. The industry as a whole seems to be doing very well and we are glad to be helping both our customers and candidates navigate the challenges of the hiring process.

Marine Engineer – Hampshire
