About US

Meet the Team !

Debbie’s Crew House is a family run establishment providing a friendly and welcoming environment for all our guests. We live next door to our crew house and are on hand to support and help you in your job search.

Originally from England, I have now been living on the Cote d’Azur for 27 years ! I worked in yachting as a stewardess then chief stewardess, so I know exactly what you are going through whether it be dock walking, looking for a crew position or indeed doing a training course.
I am always here to advice before your job interview

I began my career as a professional engineer in merchant shipping and shipyards before joining the luxury yacht industry. As well as managing our crew house I am currently the chief engineer on a locally based, large luxury yacht. I have 30 years experience in the industry and am of course happy to advise and support our guests. My yacht qualifications include a diploma in Nautical Engineering and a Class 1 ticket – but I am also known as the pizza king! When you attend one of our sunny, pizza parties by the pool, you can judge for yourself !

I enjoy getting out on a road bike in my free time and living only a 5 minute walk from our local beach, it’s a pleasure for us to be able take a paddle board or one of our canoes for a trip around the bay finishing off with a swim before dinner and you are more than welcome to join us !

Debbie and Franco run the Crew House!
