Yacht Crew Help is a free and confidential multilingual helpline for professional yacht crew available all day, every day. Despite the many benefits of working on board a superyacht, the challenges of working away from home for long periods and living in close quarters with colleagues can become overwhelming.

Yacht Crew Help is here for superyacht crew, whatever problem they’re facing, wherever they are in the world.

Our helpline officers are trained in counselling skills, suicide risk assessment and providing emotional support to crew all over the world. We’re connected with a wide range of organisations and do whatever we can to find the help that is needed.

The programme is run by the International Seafarers’ Welfare and Assistance Network (ISWAN), a charity which promotes the welfare of seafarers working in all sectors of the maritime industry.

Yacht Crew Help is funded by charitable grants and donations.

We are grateful to our primary sponsors & partners for their continued support:
