Can you read the whole add before you apply, then we might be looking for you. We need a Fishing Guide/Deckhand to join our team of 10 crew. The yacht is busy and does a lot of fishing and diving. Our program is fairly exotic, we are heading down to Chile and Patagonia for the southern hemisphere summer then up through the pacific, Tahiti, Fiji, New Zealand and Australia next year. We need a keen dynamic, front of house, crew member that is a fishing guru. The job does entail taking direction from the deck team and a lot of work on the mother vessel. This position would suit someone not to set in their ways, a keen fishing expert that does not mind working in with a team. Someone who may have worked on a fishing charter vessel or a commercial fishing vessel before. Yachtmaster qualification preferred. 1-2 years on large yachts prefered. Candidates who can be bothered writing a cover letter will also be considered more suited to the position. Thank you for your interest.
