Our YM Crew Division
Janita Allwright – Crew Placement Manager
After spending a decade at sea on superyachts herself, Janita Allwright understands the process and requirements. Her focus is to create a seamless process for the captain, crew and their owner.
Her time onboard superyachts has also given her close insight into the importance of the right team member to slot into your crew onboard. She’s an expert in superyacht crew placement and puts her focus on not just finding a candidate with qualifications, but a qualified candidate who’ll fit the yacht’s ethos and crew. Outside of work hours, she will be found hiking, stand up paddle boarding, camping and spending quality time with friends and family.
Chloe James – Charter Management/Crew Placement
Chloe turned her passion and love for the ocean into a dedicated career in the marine industry. From islands on the Great Barrier Reef to the Mediterranean & Galapagos Islands, her time onboard yachts of all levels ensures the ability to understand the needs of each crew member.
After returning to Australia, Chloe worked closely with a yacht agency in Sydney before spending the past year freelancing on many charter boats along the east coast of Queensland, so she is familiar with the many vessels that frequent our waters and all crew requirements
Leaha Farmer – Charter & Crew Placement Assistant
Leaha has been working in the yachting industry since 2010 where she started as a Stewardess in the breath-taking Whitsundays. She then worked onboard a variety of sailing and motor yachts, travelling the east coast of Australia, New Zealand, South Pacific Islands and on to the Mediterranean where she was based out of Mallorca, Spain.
Upon returning to Australia, Leaha sought out a position where she would be able to apply her wealth of yachting expertise and experience in a corporate position. This desire to help and to encourage others to have the same rich experiences of travelling and working abroad brought her to Yachtsmen International.
