With summer and the Mediterranean yachting season fast approaching, many yacht owners are beginning to think about sourcing their yacht crew uniforms. However, with so many different providers/brands out there, making a decision can be quite daunting. In this article, we’ll highlight 10 yacht crew uniform brands (with a particular focus on skorts and shorts given the time of year) that you can rely on for top-quality products.
We like to think you can rely on Sea Design for your shorts and skorts and all your yacht uniform. We have moved our production away from cotton-based material to a technical stretch fabric that is designed for comfort, easy-care, and quick-dry properties.
We have two models of skorts in our technical fast dry fabric to choose from, the Anna model, which has an A-line shape making it extremely practical for ease of movement. This skort has belt loops and a side pocket with lightweight stretch shorts underneath the skirt. Our other model is the Extreme II which is a longer-length skort and more fitted. This model also offers 2 front pockets and belt loops.
In our popular stretch polyester viscose fabric we have the popular Sally model. This style has a dropped wide waistband and is a popular choice for formal wear.
Complementing our skorts we have our male shorts models. The Henry has been restyled to offer a modern comfortable and smart short and the Hydra Cargo short, which features cargo pockets on both legs, offering a very practical but still smart short option.
New for 2022, we are introducing our Tech range, made from extra light, fast dry-stretch fabric.
The skort has a side fastening with a 2 button detailing that allows you to see the shorts underneath. The men’s Tech short is based on the same popular cut of the Henry and offers a super-light comfortable garment.
When choosing your uniform it is important that you will be able to restock in the future, that is why we source our fabric and manufacture our own styles to ensure our client continuity for the next season or crew change. We do not have this kind of control over popular brands.
We’ve managed to do this by prioritizing quality at all times. Whether the product comes from us, or a popular manufacturer, we make sure that our clients always receive the best quality yacht wear for their crew. As well as constantly searching for innovative ways to produce and design clothing, we also offer our clients considerably more personalization of their uniforms than other suppliers courtesy of our in-house printing and embroidery departments.
We strive to build strong relationships with our clients by consistently providing them with high-quality, well-designed yacht-crew uniforms and ensuring all their needs are met. If you’re interested in exploring the range of short/skort options we offer, head to our website now!

This brand has been in operation for an impressive 140 years.

Since then, Helly Hansen has produced a number of first-to-market innovations as well as forging a name for itself in the sailing industry, being worn by some of the world's top sailing athletes. Wearers can also rely on the durability of these garments thanks to their being tested in some of the world’s harshest conditions.

Cutter & Buck
Cutter & Buck is another iconic brand that can supply your crew with shorts/skorts. One of the most iconic businesses in the industry, Cutter & Buck can offer reliable quality as well as fashion-forward designs and clothes that are crafted specifically for an active lifestyle - perfect for a busy yacht crew that’s always on the move. Cutter & Buck clothing is also engineered with versatility in mind, meaning each item you purchase is suitable for a number of events outside of boating (hiking, socialising, travel, work, etc.). This is an especially valuable feature considering how often crew uniforms are thrown away after the boating season. It underlines Cutter & Buck’s commitment to sustainability, which also extends to its products and operations.
As well as sustainability and versatility, Cutter & Buck’s products also offer a wide array of specialist technologies, including moisture-wicking, stretchability, and UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) for sun protection.
