The large yacht sector is an economically important and growing sector of the maritime industry. This paper reports on the living and working conditions for crew onboard these vessels. The findings are based on research undertaken by the Seafarers International Research Centre (SIRC) on behalf of the Professional Yachtsmen’s Association (PYA), and in light of the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) 2006. Specifically, the paper reports on terms and conditions of employment, standards of accommodation, hours of work and rest, and areas of concern to seafarers. Tentative comparisons are also drawn between the large yacht sector and the merchant navy.
