50m world cruising motor yacht, currently in an extensive refit and due to depart the yard in new year to embark on an exciting itinerary. Looking for dynamic multi-skilled crew to complement the existing crew on board. Owners are American and like to keep busy, yacht is infrequently chartered but also partakes in science trips so an interest in diving, science, photography are a must. Overall use of the yacht is heavy, with lots of traveling and limited downtime. Ideally candidate will hold B1/B2 and Schengen Visa. Require a proactive, hands on Y2 Chief Engineer to work alongside the other Rotation Engineer for the refit, and rotation will commence following the launch, due to be Jan 2019. Must be a problem solver, and on the tools, the yacht operates in remote areas, so the engineer will need to come up with solutions. Organized, tidy and familiar with IDEA. An enthusiast of water sports, science, language, media, diving, fishing are a bonus.
