Friday, 23 July 2010
Moore Stephens Crew Benefits Limited (MSCB), product placement providers of niche financial and HR products specifically for Superyacht crew, today announced a strategic new alliance with Nautilus International, a leading nautical international trade union and professional organisation.
"We're excited about the opportunities for our new venture which seeks to deliver benefits for all sides through our high quality service standards," said Clive Dixon, director of MSCB, "Nautilus International is a key player in global shipping and most importantly in Superyachts and we share a common objective of protecting the interests of seafarers."
Moore Stephens Crew Benefits sources international offshore bank accounts and specialist medical insurance for internationally mobile seafarers. Most recently it launched the International FlexiPlan, a 21st Century savings vehicle designed specifically for yacht crew. MSCB will soon also offer a counselling and a dedicated 24/7 helpline for the needs of crew.
"The unique needs of Superyacht crew have not been completely understood," said Garry Elliott of Nautilus, "We're really proud to be associated with MSCB; we know how important the benefits MSCB offers are to crew morale so there's real value in this strategic alliance which opens up a wider audience for both of us, but most importantly brings more benefits to our members in terms of providing financial security for their future. MSCB have ultra low-cost, flexible international products with the unique lifestyle of yacht crew members in mind."
Each company has agreed to have co links and branding on its respective marketing materials including websites. There will also be cooperative initiatives between the two companies at Superyacht shows and other crew specific events.
