#humansofyachting Lauren Wardley – Superyacht Life

The founder of Ethical Yacht Wear on her motivations behind launching a sustainable uniform brand for superyacht crew.


“A friend described superyachts to me as luxury hotels on the ocean and I was sold. I had already done a degree in business and hotel management and was working in Sydney in a hotel by the beach. I jumped on a plane and went over to Fort Lauderdale to do my training and have now been working on yachts for about three and a half years.

I’m on a boat called Samadhi at the moment as a full-time steward. I work 8am until 5pm, unless we are in charter season, then I try to do a good few hours every evening for my own business, Ethical Yacht Wear. I usually sit down by about 7.30pm and I’ll generally work until midnight. It’s just how I am. I love building and creating. I’m not good with downtime.
