What is a Premium Crew House?

What is a Premium Crew House?

A crew house is best described as shared living with people from all walks of life who work in the marine/yachting industry.

For those yachties who don't want the chaos of a typical crew house, but who are still looking to network, we have created a new space. Stay with like-minded crew at the SandBar, and enjoy our newly renovated, upmarket premium housing opposite LMC. We have created an upscale and exclusive space that is comfortable and relaxed, allowing crew to focus on those challenging classes and advancing their yachting career.

The SandBar is a complex that has 4 individual crew houses
