The start of the new year brings lots of new available positions. From Deck and Officers to Stew, Engineer and Chef, we are looking for top candidates to place onboard many yachts.

How to apply for our January yacht jobs in 3 simple steps

The yacht jobs listed below are just a selection of our current yacht job vacancies. YPI CREW is a bespoke yacht recruitment company and as such we don't advertise every open yacht job. Instead, we ask you to register on our website and we have our recruiters connect you to the job that best suits you.

To get connected to your dream job, follow these 3 simple steps:

  1. Log in to your YPI CREW account if you have one and if not, simply register your details with us and follow our online application process.

  2. After logging in, go through your crew CV and certificates and make sure all the information is up to date. This is very important as it will enable our recruiters to find you a job that best suits you.

  3. Check-in with our recruiters by clicking the 'Check-in' option on the homepage of your YPI CREW profile. Make sure to mark your current locations and write a short message for our recruiters.

After that, a YPI CREW recruiter will be in touch with you as soon as there is a suitable opening that would be a great fit for you. Just keep in mind that there is a large volume of open positions so our recruiters will only consider candidates with a complete online profile and with all up-to-date documents.

Note that for all positions you will need an STCW Basic Safety Training certificate, as well as an in-date seafarers medical certificate, such as the ENG1 or alternative certificate of medical fitness for seafarers issued by other countries around the world.
