About Us

Hiderate was formed in order to enhance the superyachting industry – from both sides – for owners and crew alike.

We’ve created a neutral and anonymous rating system that allows yacht crew to rate their individual yachts from the perspective of their working experiences. In this way, others searching for jobs can find a more exact fit as they too search for work.

Hiderate isn’t about exposing owners or their lifestyles. Members simply rate aspects of their work experience on a scale of 1 to 5, with 1 being industry standard or just mediocre to 5 being totally awesome.

The focus is on positivity – highlighting those aspects of each yacht that make the working experience enjoyable. The purpose, in short, is to match crewmembers with yachts that are best suited to each other.

Until now, yacht crew have had to accept jobs on blind faith – simply taking a chance that they’re right for the yacht and vice versa - often finding that the job was misrepresented. Hiderate was formed as the world’s first centralized yachting portal in order to give everyone the ability to learn what’s really going on and to find the best possible matches.

How it works

Finally there is a system that bypasses boat politics, secret agendas and misrepresentation. Hiderate encompasses all the most vital information that makes or breaks your employability.

Our top priority is the protection of every user’s privacy so that crewmembers like you can rate yachts you’ve worked on truthfully and anonymously. Every comment and upload is carefully reviewed and moderated – this isn’t an opportunity to slander – it’s an opportunity for you to add your honest opinion because it truly does matter.

Our Mission

To provide the best yachting service encompassing important, accurate and relevant information for yacht crews within the industry.
