Captain 78’ Private MY – Sydney (base) + Whitsundays Apply Now

Are you a small yacht captain looking for a terrific lifestyle position?

Do you value working for a long-term yacht owner who gives you autonomy?

Replacing the current captain of 5 years, the incoming captain will receive an excellent handover before taking the reins.

The yacht is used strictly for private use only with very low guest numbers.

A typical trip would involve a relaxed dinner onboard with Mr & Mrs , with catering taken care of externally.

Captain should be a BBQ master however and happy to eat the occasional meal with the family.

This is a reasonably low usage yacht, but is busy around the Dec/January period + Easter holidays (Pittwater) and looks to spend every 2nd season in the Whitsundays (Hamilton Island Berth)

The yacht has been very well maintained and is a recent build and the owner may look to get something else in roughly 5 years’ time.

The captain must be hands on with the general maintenance however engineering is largely taken care of by outside contractors.
