Pull North Yachting

We are in proud partnership with Pull North Yachting. Pull North is a holistic-orientated Superyacht Training Academy, the training academy strongly believe in the importance of cultivating and nuturing specific industry elements that are relevant to the crew on board.

Pull North recognize that a successful career within the superyacht industry not only requires technical skills, but also a range of soft skills that contribute towards the holistic development of an individual, and in line with this mission, they team has identified the six key elements that we believe are essential for crew members in the superyacht industry.

 

Knowledge

First and foremost, knowledge is key in the yachting industry. This encompasses the technical knowledge surrounding the vessel, as well as the industry as a whole.The crew members are required to have a strong understanding of safety procedures, navigation, contracts and general yacht maintenance. In addition to these technical skills, knowledge also includes cultural awareness and an understanding of proper etiquette when interacting with guests.

 

Confidence

Confidence is another crucial element that directly affects the performance of crew members on board. Through training and mentorship, Pull North aim to instil a sense of confidence within our crew members, allowing them to react quickly and effectively in any situation that may arise. This includes being able to think on their feet, identify potential issues and proactively find solutions to ensure the smooth running of the vessel.

 

Mindset

Mindset is a vital element that is often overlooked in the superyacht industry. A positive and adaptable mindset is essential when working onboard, as the environment can be physically and mentally demanding. We encourage our crew members to adopt a growth mindset, one that is open to learning and willing to embrace new challenges. By fostering an adaptable mindset,  crew members are better equipped to handle any situation that they may encounter on board.

 

Passion

Passion is the driving force behind the success of many of our crew members. A passion for the industry, vessel, and guests can distinguish an ordinary crew member from an exceptional one. Pull North encourage crew members to find fulfillment in their roles and to take pride in the work that they do. The training academy believe that a passion for the industry directly translates into elevated levels of service and performance.

 

Networking

Building relationships and networking in the superyacht industry is extremely valuable for all crew members out there. Networking can lead to new opportunities and connections that can help advance careers as well as curate platforms for “life after yachting”. Having a strong network can provide support and guidance when faced with challenges. Thus the reason for Pull North building such a strong community of like-minded individuals.

 

Purpose

Finally, purpose is an element that goes beyond the scope of individual roles and functions. At Pull North Yachting, theye encourage crew members to understand and embrace the bigger picture of the industry. A strong sense of purpose creates a more meaningful work experience that transcends the day-to-day tasks on board. Understanding that their work contributes towards a larger narrative and instills a sense of pride and satisfaction in the roles of a crew member.

 

It is Pull North’s firm belief that by focusing on the industry elements outlined above, they can effectively foster the success of  crew members, while simultaneously contributing to the overall growth and advancement of the superyacht industry.

This support extends not only during their careers, but before and after as well.
