Do you think you have what it takes to be a yachtie!?

Yacht Stewardess and Deckhand Jobs

 

  1. Yachtie Day Worker

    • This is common when you’ve just finished your STCW and you’re looking for experience, or maybe if you are in between jobs.
    • You typically find an hourly based job on a boat that only needs assistance for a day or maybe even a week or two, but it is not a full time position and you likely will not expect to live on board while doing it.
  2. Temporary / Part Time Yachtie

    • This may be for a longer period than a day working job, like a week- a month or so.  You may or may not stay on board while doing this, it all just depends.
    • Often times these jobs can turn into a more permanent position or a great reference if you do a good job and they have an opening.
  3. Full Time Yachtie

    • This is a commitment in which you will likely be living on board, or in the crew house, and expect to work on the boat regularly for at least a season.  
    • There will probably be some type of contract, and you will agree on salary, and other things like vacation time, etc.
  4. Rotational Yacht Jobs

    • This is becoming more and more common amongst higher positions on board such as captains and engineers, not common amongst new crew
  5. Seasonal /Freelance Yacht Jobs

    • Freelance  jobs are more easy to obtain once you have a few seasons/years of working on a boat.  This means you will work on a boat temporarily for a period of time. These may be anywhere from a day/week or two to a month or two.  I prefer to freelance because there’s no long term obligation.
    • I recommend getting at least a year of experience, ideally on one boat, so that you can try out freelancing and see if you like it, I love it!
  6. Delivery Yacht Crew

    • A delivery is when you are simply moving a boat from one place to another.  Usually there are no guests on board and you’re just going from point A to point B.  It may be anywhere from a few hours, to a few weeks. These are also a great way to earn some money quickly without the hassle of a full-time yacht commitment (or dealing with guests.)
