The yachting industry is a small world with great opportunities for young ambitious professionals. But that’s also a well-kept secret. The sexiness of the yachting lifestyle does not necessarily reflect on the shipyards and suppliers that find it hard to attract and nurture talent in a tight labour market, making it increasingly difficult to find highly skilled craftspeople to build these complex vessels.
How do we sell the industry to future employers? What are effective ways to nurture and develop talent in-house? And how can we effectively increase diversity to enrich our workforce with new strengths and qualities?
Together with Carla Limatola of Young Professionals in Yachting, and Maike Bonke, Manager Human Resources at Heesen, we discuss the challenges and opportunities of human resources in yachting.

A Dutch shipyard dedicated to pushing the boundaries in design, engineering and construction, Heesen is a company that continues to evolve. Since the time its founding father Frans Heesen acquired the business in 1978, it has been building superyachts in aluminium and steel that offer speed, style and fuel-efficient cruising. Its award-winning vessels continue to match the owner’s exacting demands, and its unrelenting focus on quality, craftsmanship and innovation has created one of the world’s most impressive shipbuilding legacies.
