23M Princess, private. I have been Captain for this family for 8 years now and have been offered many other jobs during this time on much larger vessels but it is just impossible to leave such a fantastic family who look after me so well and that have now become very close friends. Unfortunately my normal crew will be unavailable for next year due to family commitments. We are starting a new 33M explorer build in September 2017 for a round the world cruise over two years. I am looking for a young Chef/ Stew/ Deck hand for next year who will hopefully join the new boat during build. I run the boat with just the two of us and the cooking will be limited but I would love to offer that to the owners. I am not looking for Michelin Star! If you have a good sense of humour, are a kite surfer or would like to learn and or diver then you will love the time on board as we do both with guests and when we have down time. I plan to leave Malta around the 5th of April for Sicily to complete pre season work then onto Spain for mid May (Tarifa for some kite surfing and the owners birthday mid May in Porto Banus) then up to the UK via Portugal and Northern France for the cuisine and wine! Then up to the UK and perhaps even Ireland and Scotland. I would also be looking for the candidate to act as my PA during the build which will mean full time from September 2017 in Italy when we are not on the Princess. There are a lot more details to discuss and the roll of the person I am looking for. This is a very friendly and fun boat with a great family who share the boat during the season. The plan is to spend 2018 in Scandinavia before taking delivery of the new boat. Having previously worked in the film industry we plan to document the entire build and world trip so an interest in film production would be great. Pay will be well above the industry norm for the right candidate.
