Leading the Way

The growing number of women in yachting are not only role models for young girls, they‘re also bringing new perspectives that benefit everyone



“If you can’t see something, how do you know that it’s even an option?” muses superyacht Captain Kelly Gordon. She’s talking about the scarcity of women occupying leadership roles in the yachting industry, and she’s explaining her motivations for sharing her work on social media with her thousands of  followers to help rectify the issue.


Data verifies Captain Gordon’s observation about optics. According to the most recent survey by organisation She of the Sea, only 2.1% of yacht captains are female. The survey also identified that only 28.2% of all crew are women, and in the wider yachting sector, such as at brokerage houses and shipyards, female employees make up only 34%.
