About Oceanskies Crew

Oceanskies Crew Limited (‘Oceanskies Crew’) is a Guernsey, Channel Islands based provider of offshore yacht crew employment and payroll outsourcing services.

It was created by the principals of Oceanskies which is a fully independent marine and aviation consultancy specialising in the registration and documentary support of yachts, aircraft and their crew.

Oceanskies Crew was founded to handle the increasing volume of requests that Oceanskies was receiving from yacht owners for assistance with the employment of their crew.

The requests being received from owners were resulting from the variety of complex jurisdictional issues that they were facing in terms of employment law and the payment of tax and national insurance, for example:

  • The differing jurisdiction of a yacht’s ownership, registration, homeport and areas of navigation;
  • The impact of international legislation such as the Maritime Labour Convention 2006 (“MLC”); and
  • The personal circumstances of each crew member in terms of where they are domiciled, where they might be resident, (if they have an ‘onshore’ residence), and where they might be liable to pay tax and/or account for social security.

It is the aim of Oceanskies Crew to simplify arrangements through a practical and cost effective framework by taking over responsibility for the employment and payment of yacht crew on behalf of the yacht owner.
