We are looking for a FIRST MATE for a 40m+ private motor yacht in the United States.

Job to start around mid March.

This is world travelling yacht which will be leaving the States around April en route to the South Pacific and further afield. They are always travellilng and usually off the beaten path which makes for an exciting itinerary.

You will need a minimum of Yacht Master Offshore. They would consider a very experienced Deckhand or Bosun who is looking to step up in responsibility. Someone with a passion for adventure an no commitments back home.

Plenty of opportunities for drive time and learning the ropes of being a captain.

The yacht is currently in the Bahamas but will be heading back to Fort Lauderdale soon. For this reason we will be interviewing candidates with their B1B2 already if needed.

This is a fantastic program where longevity is common due to the great owners and destinations. The current Mate has been on board for over 4 years out has out grown the role and is looking for a new challenge. Applications through YOA preferred.
