BOAT International Media (BOAT) is delighted to announce Starboard Card as its annual partner for the Captains' Club in 2022.
As an exclusive community for superyacht captains, the Captains' Club offers invaluable opportunities for networking, engaging and learning. BOAT International hosts member-only events throughout the year, enabling yacht captains to meet and mingle in exclusive settings across the world, including at the Fort Lauderdale and Monaco yacht shows.
Starboard Card is a natural partnership for the Captains' Club. The company is an innovative finance system for crew that gives them access to the yacht’s funds while still keeping the account holder in control of spending. The system is formed with a physical card and a mobile app that comes with a host of features including offline functionality, money transfers, quote management, unlimited virtual cards and the ability for all yacht crew to upload their receipts quickly and efficiently.
“BOAT is very pleased to welcome Starboard Card as a new partner for the Captains' Club this year,” said Stewart Campbell, editor-in-chief of BOAT International. “This is a brilliant solution for yacht crew that will save a lot of headache and hassle and we’re looking forward to seeing it implemented among many more yacht crews in the future."
With over 30 years of yachting industry knowledge, Starboard Card has designed its system with all the necessary features that yacht crews might need, including a built-in APA management system. This provides instant, streamlined reporting services, including end-of-charter reconciliation. Account holders can also enjoy a full budgeting system, ranging from collating all the day-to-day expense necessities to much larger projects – including refits and new builds.
“We’re all very excited to be working with BOAT over the summer,” commented Dan Lane, founder and CEO of Starboard Card. “It’s hugely encouraging to be supported by such a prestigious partner in our formative years in the industry. We look forward to meeting all of the team and the members of the Captains' Club at the events we will be a part of this year!"
