Who am I?

jade-photoHi my name is Jade Fitzpatrick and I am the founder of Coastal Yachting Recruitment. In 2006 I left Australia and travelled to the Mediterranean to work onboard luxury yachts. During this time, I helped friends and acquaintances from around the world find work in the yachting industry. My passion for the industry and the ability to help people find work, contributed to my launching of Coastal Yachting Recruitment.

My Bachelor of Education and Training qualifications along with my knowledge and experience onboard yachts, have given me a solid background to educate and assist those looking for a career in the yachting industry. My personal experiences as a crew member has enabled me to make successful matches between my clients and crew.

Working onboard both motor and sail yachts all over the world, I have made valuable connections with captains, yacht owners and crew members. I look forward to continuing to provide professional and dedicated service to all my clients and crew.

We are a proud member and supporter of Superyacht Australia.
