WHAT SHOULD JUNIOR CREW DO WITH THEIR SALARIES?


The location of the


superyacht (international waters or territorial waters) as well as the flag of the yacht determines the laws and regulations a drone operator should comply with. Within the EU, it is governed by the national aviation authorities of each member state unless you have permission from the relevant authorities. The law prohibits flying small- unmanned surveillance aircraft (i.e. a drone fitted with a camera) within 50 metres of any vehicle, structure or person not under the control of the person in charge of the aircraft. If your superyacht is flagged under the British Red Ensign, you may fly a drone to capture photos and video footage over your own yacht and the surrounding area as long as you comply with the afore mentioned restrictions. In the territorial waters of other jurisdictions, local laws must be followed.


Proven hybrid electric power is certainly the immediate way forward for superyachts and the clean fuel alternatives being investigated by various superyacht shipyards is a positive step. The Norwegians have introduced tough environmental legislation and are driving towards electric hybrid and battery- powered vessels, with several innovative new build projects aiming for zero emissions by 2030. The various small boat OEMs starting to produce 100% electric solutions are a positive step for a cleaner marine environment too. Yet to power an 80m yacht by battery alone is still many, many years away. You cannot hurry chemistry and the chemical process needed for battery manufacture on the scale and output required to power and run all systems onboard by current battery/lithium-ion energy storage systems. A superyacht is required to do so much more than just ferry her owner and VIPs.


As we all know, effective communication is always of great benefit. Whilst at sea, however, it’s also of paramount importance. Whether it’s the Captain, the Crew or the Support Services Partners ashore, the smooth, efficient and indeed safe running of a boat at sea involves the co-operation of many key stakeholders, each of whom have their own important and unique part to play. Effective communication is always a two-way cycle with its delivery and understanding being critical to its success, regardless of whether it’s face-to- face, by telephone or via online messaging. Pivotal in this effective communications cycle is the Yacht Management Services Provider who, fully understanding the roles and responsibilities of the different stakeholders, can effectively liaise with and bring together all the parties, thus ensuring the provision of clear and rapid information, actions and solutions.


First and foremost, pay off any existing debts. These cost a ridiculous amount in interest. Then build an Emergency Pot. At least three months’ salary available at all times in case you find yourself looking for a job. Thirdly, save for education in order to progress your career, consider the costs of education. Plan for the next course and how much it will cost (including travel and accommodation), divide this by the number of months before the course, and save every month. Fourth is the longer term ‘Exit Pot’. What might you do when you leave yachting? A land based job, start your own business, retire? Save at least 25% of your remaining income every month. Penultimately, what about a ‘Property Pot’ If you want to invest in property, then start planning early. Last but not least the very necessary ‘Fun Pot’. Set an amount each month for having fun and travelling. Saying no to another night out is the hardest part!
