As yachts continue to grow in value, size and complexity, so do the responsibilities placed on superyacht captains, but how does an owner effectively recruit and retain the most talented candidate?
Recognising the need for a specialist solution, Captains Brendan O'Shannassy and Malcolm Jacotine have joined forces to launch OnlyCaptains.com, the first executive search and command mentoring service for superyacht captains.
OnlyCaptains operate as retained consultants, researching and identifying captains who align with the owner’s brief and vision for yachting.
With extensive command experience and an established industry network, OnlyCaptains use assessment protocols and psychometric tests developed specifically for captains and senior officers in the maritime industry, undertaken in the strictest of confidence.
Understanding that matching the right captain to a particular yacht and client is only the beginning, OnlyCaptains remain personally invested through ongoing support and mentoring to ensure this most important relationship continues to flourish.
As part of a yacht owner’s risk management, OnlyCaptains also provide command assessments for captains moving up to larger tonnage and chief officers taking their first command. This can be supplemented with a tailored training and mentoring package.
Combining over 60 years of experience in the recruitment and mentoring of superyacht captains and crew, OnlyCaptains is a collaboration between Captains Malcolm Jacotine and Brendan O’Shannassy, promoting excellence with honesty, transparency, and complete commercial independence.
OnlyCaptains - for Captains, by Captains!
