Oceanskies Crew Limited, (OCL), the yacht crew employment and payroll outsourcing division of Oceanskies, is pleased to announce that they have successfully passed their annual Maritime Labour Convention (MLC) audit by Lloyd’s Register with with no observations or deficiencies noted.

This means that the Statement of Compliance issued by Lloyd’s Register to OCL is validated for another year confirming that the company is fully compliant with standard A1.4 and guidelines B1.4 of the MLC 2006.

The MLC requires crew employment companies to conform to a number of stringent requirements and ongoing audits by either classification societies or flag states.

OCL is able to efficiently employ and pay crew working onboard any yacht of any size whether operated privately or commercially.

Pricing is really straight forward at EUR 260.00 take on per crew member, (including contract), then EUR 65.00 per month per crew member plus EUR 15.00 bank charges.

The system works by the yacht owner outsourcing the employment of their crew to OCL either on a stand alone basis or as part of a third party management structure. OCL takes care of the crew’s employment and payroll on behalf of the yacht owner or yacht manager in an administratively efficient manner from our home island of Guernsey.

The key advantage of utilising the services of OCL is that the administrative burden of the employment and payment of crew is outsourced to a professional agency.

Other advantages include:

  • Oceanskies Crew is issued with a Statement of Compliance issued by Lloyd’s Register to OCL confirming that the company is fully compliant with standard A1.4 and guidelines B1.4 of the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (MLC).
  • Oceanskies Crew is based in a tax neutral jurisdiction with the ability to register crew for social security in the UK and Malta; and
  • Oceanskies Crew charges on a simple fixed fee basis rather than as a percentage of the crew member’s salary.
  • Oceanskies Crew have also invested heavily in IT and developed our own IT platform delivered via our own Crew App

Please do not hesitate to contact either Adrian or Tom here at Oceanskies for further information.
