In an effort to improve crew conditions a new strategic alliance has been agreed between the maritime trade union Nautilus International and the financial services firm Moore Stephens Crew Benefits (MSCB).

Under the deal the two organisations will cooperate at superyacht shows and hold specific crew events.

“The unique needs of superyacht crew have not been completely understood,” explains Nautilus’ industrial officer Garry Elliott. “There’s real value in this strategic alliance which opens up a wider audience for both of us. But most importantly it will bring more benefits to our members in terms of providing financial security for their future. “
