Moore Stephens Crew Benefits Limited (MSCB), a source of niche financial products specifically for Superyacht crew, will sponsor the Captain’s Hideout 2010 during the Monaco Yacht Show.
“Since launching in April, we’ve had a terrific response,” said Bransom Bean, director of MSCB, “So we decided that Monaco and the Captain’s Hideout would be the perfect venue to meet our new Superyacht clients, contacts and crew in comfort away from the hustle and bustle of the show.”
MSCB has sourced a variety of financial products, all officially endorsed by Nautilus International, a leading nautical international trade union and professional organisation. They include:
- International multi-currency bank accounts
- Global (including the USA) health and accident insurance with income protection
- Flexible savings plans adapted the yacht crew career
- A 24/7 helpline (from September)
All crew who sign up for MSCB’s products become crew members of “Moore Stephens Crew Club” with a dedicated website and membership card providing access to their personal 24/7 helpline.
“The needs of Superyacht crew are not widely understood by most providers, including many who service other seafarers,” said Bransom, “MSCB’s aim is to be a personal one-stop financial shop for yacht crew - it’s as simple as that.”
