Introducing Smart Move Accommodation’s


Being that the marine industry is social in nature, crew housing is a popular choice for all yachties no matter their level of experience. Green crew starting out and completing their STCW certifications, as well as more seasoned yachties who have been actively working in the industry, will typically choose shared housing for the main benefit of networking.

Connecting with like-minded individuals through shared experiences is what communal living is all about! Creating lifelong friendships, and possible employment, are both great advantages when staying in one of our houses.

Smart Move offers Budget Crew Housing and Professional Crew Housing. Typically, those starting out will opt for this setup as its economical and a great jumping off point for those newbies.

We saw a gap in the market for those mariners looking for shared crew housing, but on a different, more advanced level. For those yachties who don't want to rent a private apartment but who also, don’t want the chaos of a typical crew house, we have created a brand-new space and are very excited about it! 



Our Premium Crew House Complex, The SandBar has been designed specifically for seasoned crew, and those coming in for the more challenging classes. If you are looking for more than just a bed in a busy crew house, then our brand-new housing setup if for you! The SandBar is a newly renovated and upmarket complex opposite LMC. We have created an upscale and exclusive space that is comfortable and relaxed, allowing crew to enjoy their time off after a long day of classes and for those working at LMC.

What we love about the layout of The Sandbar is that there is a sense of community, but on your terms. Each unit has its own private outdoor space with BBQ, as well as the option of enjoying the shared pool.
