Thank you for the miracle that you pulled off to get our crew back to us on time. I know it is not an easy task dealing with embassies and airlines, especially when you are trying to move crew out to moving targets like our yacht with a busy and unpredictable itinerary. We appreciate the extra mile you went for us, and we are really happy to have our smiling crew back on board again

Your agency is one of the very few who are dedicated to supplying crew to the mega yacht industry. Crew Asia have an experienced eye for candidates that are both well mannered, and have a keen enthusiasm for their chosen profession. Crew Asia also does a very good job arranging all the travel documents, visas, and economical flight arrangements... Sometimes to very tight schedules. I highly recommend Crew Asia and wish them every success in the future; I am a very satisfied customer
