About us | Find a Crew™ by NAUTYCALAbout us | Find a Crew™ by NAUTYCAL

 

Find a Crew™ is the World's largest Online Marine Crew & Boat network, which is owned, managed, developed, and supported by NAUTYCAL Pty Ltd, based in the small sea town of Mooloolaba at the Sunshine Coast in Australia.

 

And yes, we do know how to spell nautical, but we spell it with a 'Y' to have NAUTYCAL as our registered trademark.

 

The combined 'Y' and the 'i' in our NAUTYCAL logo is our modest way of celebrating that we are all about people, aiming to 'sea' you succeed, and have all of us share many miles with plenty of smiles beyond our wildest dreams.

Who is Find a Crew™?

Find a Crew™ is a central point of introduction for people from all over the world of all walks of life. It is not a crew agency, not a forum, and not a social networking website.

 

Find a Crew™ is Australian owned, managed and developed, and is based in locations around the world with its head office in Australia at the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba.


Our team

Find a Crew™ is home to a team of diverse, dynamic and dedicated people with backgrounds from marine, marketing, IT&C (Information Technology & Communications), travel, education and human resource. 

 

Our history

Find a Crew™ was founded at the Sunshine Coast, Australia in October 2004, and launched on December 1st, 2004.
Its unique approach to finding a crew quickly attracted thousands of members from around the world in a very short time and placed Find a Crew™ in a leading position within the marine crew industry in less than a year.
 

Ever since, Find a Crew™ has helped thousands of people to get on the water, find crew for their boats, and introduced the start of many careers, new adventures and friendships.

With the success of the first five years, Find a Crew™ has become an established and leading participant in the nautical online industry. Based on the success and expertise we have in this industry, the original founders formed a new company called NAUTYCAL Pty Ltd, under which umbrella Find a Crew™ belongs to as of 1 October 2009, and NAUTYCAL Pty Ltd is the flag ship for other projects and acquisitions.

 

Find a Crew™ has active Members in over 135 countries, receives daily member payments originating from over 125 countries, and has over 60 convenient Find a Crew™ telephone support locations around the World (see 'Contact Us').
