CARLY YENDLE

Senior Recruitment Consultant

With yachting parents, Carly’s whole life has revolved around the yachting industry. She tested crew-life for herself before realising that her talents were better fitted to land-based positions. At the tender age of 19 she was offered a crew recruitment role for a reputable yachting company where she spent the next eight years honing her skills. Carly is now a leading name in the yachting industry. Carly is based in Antibes and speaks fluent French. She is an adventurer who loves to travel off the beaten track. She enjoys the odd glass of Rosé on the beach that can often lead her to the dance floor!

 Carly focuses on placing our HODs, Chefs and Engineers

siobhan Taylor

Recruitment Consultant

Siobhan's first sales role was selling Mini Coopers to high profile clients in London's Mayfair. After a sniff of the finer things in life, she decided to embark on a career on super yachts working as a Housekeeper for 2 years. When Siobhan decided to hang up her skorts in 2020 for her land-based life, we snapped up her perfect skillset (sales and yachting experience). Siobhan is super high energy by day, but a yogi by night. She finds her balance through her passion for yoga, enjoying intrepid trips to places like Kenya and Tanzania to find her zen!

Siobhan recruits our Stews, including those with extra skills.
