Discover the different opportunities available on board a yacht

Working on board a yacht takes a variety of skills and dedication. Yacht crew share both their work and living space with each other and together they aim to deliver the best holiday experience to yacht owners and their guests. The deck and engineering crew need to obtain various certifications for safe manning of the vessel and the interior team will be trained and ready to deliver service on the highest level. All this will be compensated with an excellent salary and numerous benefits that come with each position. 

The exact positions available on board each yacht depend on its size and operational structure. Below you can find descriptions for each of the positions available to yacht crew.
