Understanding the particular financial requirements of those in the yachting industry is key. Our experts will help you create and protect your wealth, ensuring adequate provision for life’s twists and turns throughout your yachting career.
For yacht crew a sound plan is very important as they are rarely included in any state health or pension schemes, so it is down to the individual crew member to look after their own financial future.

10 rules to get the most out of yachting career
This is the best financial advice you will ever get while you are pursuing a career in yachting, and the best part, it’s absolutely FREE!
Some of these may seem obvious, but it’s surprising how few are actually practiced by crew members, old or young. However, if you stick to these guidelines throughout your yachting career, you will maximise your chances of financial success.
Horizons investment Account
We understand the unique financial planning requirements of captains and crew members and the need for competitively priced, flexible pensions, savings and investment solutions.
The Horizons Investment Account is a flexible solution for all yacht crew and you can start with as little as €50 per month. But we do advise you to save at least 25% of your income for the long term, remember you don’t pay any social security. If you worked on shore, your salary would be at least 25 percent less.
