Crew Services

As maritime employment specialists with a team boasting 150+ years of crew management experience, Dominion Crew Solutions offer extremely cost-effective crew employment and payroll services to superyacht owners and technical management firms.

All commercial yachts (and private yachts are now in the process of following suit to match International Labour Law requirements) must meet the regulations stipulated in the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) and thus all employers must be regulated and subject to audit to ensure compliance.  Accordingly, it is essential that the employment of crew takes place in a manner that is fully compliant in accordance with Regulation A1.4 of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC).

To assist clients with these requirements, we are one of the few yacht crew employers that are fully staffed, approved & certified by Lloyds Register in accordance with these regulations which in turn provides our clients with the following benefits and protection:

  • All Seafarer Employment Agreements are MLC and Flag State approved and fully comply with all maritime employment legislation
  • Timely and efficient payment of salaries including multi-currency functionality which includes the provision of pay advice slips
  • Experienced and professional team providing 24/7 guidance on all crew employment matters
  • Every yacht is assigned with a dedicated Crew Employment Specialist to ensure continuity & familiarity for the Captain & crew
  • Effective management of EU employers social security liabilities
