Superyacht owners, management companies, Captains, and HODs have the pivotal responsibility to prioritise crew wellbeing and mental health, but the superyacht industry now finds itself on the verge of a mental health crisis.

In the last few years it’s become clear that maintaining crew wellbeing is paramount, yet not enough is being done by those in charge. In comparison to the vast operational costs of a superyacht, investment in support services for crew and training emerges as a very affordable yet transformative solution.

"Superyacht Fitness champions an environment where mental health isn’t just an afterthought but a cornerstone of the crew experience."

Superyacht Fitness recognises these challenges and provides tailored solutions to address them head-on.
