Crew placement agencies aren't a new idea — a hotbed of yachting activity like Fort Lauderdale, Florida has hundreds of them, paper–and–file–cabinet operations run out of offices all over the city. But YachtCrews is different. It's the brainchild of Captain David Cook — a veteran of the yachting business who wanted to bring a new approach to the business. David's title isn't just for show — he's an active captain who spends much of his time on the high seas. And he wanted a business that would go with him wherever he went — while still providing consistent and reliable service to his clients.
