Superyacht crew jobs sound like a great idea in this economy. There is no commitment to having a mortgage or keeping up an apartment and you can see the world, sailing from port to port on the best boats known to man. However, getting a job on a superyacht is not as simple as showing up, you have to know what it might entail. First, you will have to spend a lot of time with other people in close quarters, the bedrooms for staff are quite small. If you think that you can handle this lack of personal space, then you can move ahead. Next, if you work with the wealthy, you have to make sure that you have the clothes to look professional. While some may not like it, there is a certain class level that you have to be able to pull off in showing.
Next, even with the cramped quarters, you likely will have to be on call 24/7, so you might not be able to get a full night’s sleep. Being always available is not necessarily an ideal way to get through life, but if someone throws up at 3 in the morning you will have to clean it up. If you can handle all of these things and perhaps some other things not covered here, then the pay is quite good. You should get a base pay plus a bonus or tip at the end of the journey. All of this should be profit, especially since all food and board is generally covered. So, all of your pay can go directly into your bank account. If you hop from yacht to yacht or stay with one, you can work for years and then when you are done travelling the world, you can have all of that money for the next phase of your life. Good luck!
