Position: Mate candidate - Tender driver

Yacht: 36m Motor yacht - Private

Location : Italy

Start date : March

Itinerary: Worldwide

Requirements: YM with OOW modules preferred. Valid STCW95 and ENG1. B1/B2 and Schengen visa if needed.

Must have STRONG Tender Driving Skills and Deck Maintenance Skills.

You will be sole deck/mate.

Ideally the person will have a few years experience, be able to work well by themselves (you run your own department on board - no micro management), be cheerful/fun, sporty and able to entertain themselves. We don't go to the usual yacht spots so someone that can entertain themselves.

Job Details: Runs with 5 crew.

Owners are very low key; they enjoy worldwide travel and will have 1 or 2 other couples on board at times. They are in bed by 10pm most every night. Are not big drinkers. You will get breaks during the day for a rest as well.

We are very active with biking, hiking, sightseeing and exploring. This is a great program for someone who wants to see the world and travel. Owners are very kind. This is not a party boat so someone more into fitness and just having fun.

Boat will travel a lot and has NO home base. Needs to be independent and a self starter, happy to work by themselves but also to chip in on deck now and then. Must be sociable as owners interact a lot with the crew. Owners come on board for 2-3 weeks at a time then leave for between 6-8 weeks so plenty of down time in between passages etc.

Usually only 2-4 people on board but very very occasionally it could be 6.

Longevity is key!

Fluent English speakers is a must.

Really interesting programme. One of the best crew quarters I have seen for a boat this size.

Team: NO

Package : paid in USD DOE Industry Standard

Bonus scheme in place at end of working year.

2.5 days per month paid holiday with paid annual flight up to 1500€ but will be more time to get odd days off in between trips when possible.

You get your own private cabin and own toilet and wash basin with a shared shower.
