Unlike most, we really do know what it takes to be a successful Captain or Deck Officer.

Our command experience working for some of the World’s wealthiest individuals, gives us unrivalled expertise.

We use our network of maritime professionals, knowledge and insight to identify the most suitable candidates.

Using competency interview techniques we assess candidates in key areas such as maritime and safety, management, leadership and guest interaction.

Through our deep understanding of yachting we recruit the officers who have the qualities your yacht needs.

OnlyCaptains provide a more rigoorous, experience-based process, driven by delivering solutions, not reams of CV’s.

Based in Monaco – The Capital of Yachting!


We work as trusted advisors to identify and source the right officers.

+ Owners and their Representatives

+ Yacht Managers

+ Captains – we can help build your bridge team!

Offering you a choice of contingency or retained service.

In both cases we use our extensive industry connections and knowledge to find the right candidates.

As retained consultants, primarily for the recruitment of Captains, we work with you to develop the brief – the criteria, character and skill sets that are important to you. We then use our resources to find the most suitable matches; including making professional approaches to high calibre candidates who are not in the job market. The assessments are even more in-depth, ensuring only the very best are put forward.

With the ‘retained’ service comes the added benefit of extended guarantee, support and mentoring to help ensure the most positive outcome.
