Our client is seeking Deckhand / Steward (ess) to join their classic, canoe-stern 34 meter totally private motor yacht in the yard and take them on an adventure that will include the usual stomping grounds, up and down the East Coast and off to the islands of the Caribbean.
The Captain is putting his entire team together and he is focusing on finding a group that works well together, has a true team attitude (pitches in with other departments), and will never use the term “not my job.”
The best possible candidate will have a clear progression in his career – so experienced on yachts, good, solid references, great skills on deck and not afraid of hard work! Tender driving skills are not a requirement, but are certainly important – the program has a 37’ tender. The owner loves to fish and although a background in fishing is not required, it would certainly be helpful. The owners are not stand-off type of people so all of the crew – including the Engineer – will be expected to have outgoing personalities and enjoy being around guests as well as other crew. The refit they are finishing is a “ground up” refit and the program will be starting with what can be viewed as a brand new boat. This includes provisioning everything before setting out for cruising. If you have experience setting up a new build, that would be very helpful.
They require: ENG1, Full STCW and the ability to get a B1/B2 visa.
