    Wow! What a great company! I wish Get onboard was around when I started yachting! It is literally everything you could ask for getting yourself set for the industry. It takes the guess work and mission out of figuring out what you need to get started in the wonderfulness that is yachting and makes sure you are set up and ready to succeed in this exciting career and adventure. You are in such great hands with Meg, she has got infinite knowledge about the yachting industry, is incredibly professional and has got great contacts in the yachting world! I have no doubts whatsoever ever that you will be 100% happy with your decision to use Get onboard yachts!

    Packing up life and moving it across the world in search of a job in the super yacht industry can be quite daunting. Meg’s guidance, responsiveness, and connections helped point me in the right direction and made for a smooth transition. Highly recommend having Meg in your corner.
