Position Snapshot



A little about the itinerary:

The boat is currently in a mini refit in Australia and should depart direction Asia in September.

The Yacht will make her way up the East coast of Australia, then onto Darwin, and across to Bali, with some cruising in the region in Indonesia, and ending up in Singapore.

From there it is likely the vessel may be shipped to Europe


The owners are American, very nice, but like to be quite involved.

The captain is looking for someone with big boat sailing experience. And a real sailor. They should have at least two or three seasons under their belt. And a solid sailing background. The boat is going to do some miles over the next year, so someone unattached would be better, however open to a possible couple’s position with a chef.


The 1st Mate should be able to assist with the final preparations in the yard before relaunch


They should have all the usual tickets, yacht master (Preferably Ocean) STCW, ENG1, GMDSS a big plus.

standard SEA contract under UK flag, which amounts to just over 40 days of paid leave, flights. There is a bonus scheme and the owners are lovely and often treat the crew to various ‘experiences’ along the way.


The Ideal candidate should have a strong sail background, time on larger sail yachts with good attitude and can get along well with the crew


Start: Mid/ Late July in Australia


Salary: From $6000 US / Month , 40 days leave, SEA contract
