CREW & YACHTING JOBS
Unfortunately YachtCharterFleet is unable to deal with crew and recruitment enquiries. But, we have outlined some basic information and provided some contacts below to help those looking for their first job in the superyacht industry.
THINGS TO KNOW
You will find it impossible to secure a job in the yachting industry unless you have undertaken the STCW Basic Training. A requirement when working on any commercially registered yacht, the course is provided throughout Europe and the USA.
Other courses are not formally required but, if you want to stand out from the crowd and show you are serious about working aboard a superyacht, it will be of great benefit to take on additional training.
Deciding on which department you want to specialise in will help you choose your next educational steps. Positions fall into deck, engineering, galley and interior roles.
The hardest job to get in yachting is often considered to be your first one. For extra help on crew training and superyacht career paths, visit www.bluewateryachting.com/crew-training/courses/entry-level-yachting-qualifications.
