Meet the team behind YACHTNEEDS, the most popular superyacht app of 2016

Home / News / Meet the team behind YACHTNEEDS, the most popular superyacht app of 2016

In just one year the YACHTNEEDS app has stormed the superyacht industry and given captains and crew the access they wanted to the superyacht industries best local suppliers and services.

This mobile app has been an unprecedented success story. Starting with YACHTNEEDS, a geo-positioned app that tells crew where the nearest, English speaking superyacht supplier is for whatever they need in that moment.

The team then went on to launch YACHTCHAT so that crew could chat live on YACHTNEEDS and find other crew in their local area or further afield. Activating the ‘Day work’ function also allowed Captains to see who was available locally for day work and helped many new crew to get their first experiences on board this Med season.

Now, the former yacht crew-members, turned mobile app experts have launched YACHTNEEDS JOBS, a recruitment section in the YACHTNEEDS app. Again using the geo-positioned technology they will be hosting all the superyacht jobs in one place and simplifying the application process for crew.

With some impressive stats such as 100,000+ user sessions in the first six months, over 10,000 crew using the app daily and 12,000+ user sessions the last three weeks, the team can be found at all the major boat shows. If you would like to meet up, please email app@yachtneeds.net and someone will be in touch!
