Employment Services

Voyonic offers a full crew employment solution to yacht owners and operators. Voyonic pioneered the use of Cell Companies for employment of small independent groups of employees and we would be happy to discuss this solution with you.

We can work closely with the crew managers within your organisation or directly with the Captains on the yachts to co-ordinate the day-to-day basics of employment so you don’t have to. Using our tried and tested, fully audited and certificated HR procedures decreases the amount of time spent on administration, resulting in faster, more efficient responses and a better value of service.

The importance of MLC, 2006 to our industry cannot be overstated. Voyonic was the first to obtain certification of compliance from the Guernsey authorities. We also ensure that all our clients have individual certification of compliance to the MLC, 2006 as issued by DNV GL.

Whatever the type of vessel you operate the team at Voyonic would be more than delighted to be able to discuss crewing solutions with you and through our network of offices ensure that the best crew management service is provided.



How can my company benefit?

When the retention of your competent and experienced crew is paramount, the importance of having an equally experienced and competent personnel team cannot be underestimated.

Voyonic Crew Management Group provide just that and in providing a comprehensive and personal service to not only the owner/operators but also your seafarers and their families it certainly has a very positive impact on their performance, commitment and desire to remain as part of your dedicated resource pool.

What is agreed in this plan?

The requirements from the owner or technical manager are paramount, with a focus on the management of operating costs and crew budgets. Preparation of crew budgets, financial reporting and any variance analysis will be agreed and implemented to meet your requirements.

How do we price our services?

Our crew management service begins by identifying the vessel and agreeing the crew complement based upon the safe manning documents, operating parameters and any client specific requirements.

From there our role is to ensure that the best available crew are sourced for the vessel and a plan prepared with our training section to ensure that the vessel remains crewed for all of its life, which includes identifying all training and development needs.

What are Voyonic’s Objectives?

Crew retention is vital to you and to the vessel, replacing crew costs money not only in recruitment but in training, travel etc. our aim is to reduce crew turnover to a minimum. Our reputation has been built on an ability to maintain confidentiality between clients and to “ring-fence” crew for an operator, we understand the nature of the industry.
