A Career in Yachting
Working on a yacht is certainly a 180-degree change from life in an office or other land based positions. You will be taking your work home with you, as you will be living where you work. You will be expected to maintain the uppermost keen and flexible attitude, not only in the way you complete your daily work but also in how you interact with the people you are working with and for.
This requires an extra strong backbone both physically and mentally, and there are times when you will be expected to perform duties out of your job description.
There is no "nine to five" lifestyle onboard boats, but the challenges can be rewarding in many ways…from the travelling experience and knowledge you will gain to some much needed downtime when you least expect it. This is one business that truly demands a team player. You must be prepared, always, to go above and beyond the call of duty at any given time and in any given sea condition. When you invest that kind of time and energy into the yacht you are working on, it is easy to understand how this job quickly becomes a part of you. To some this might seem like a nightmare, but in fact, this unique relationship is the most satisfying reward of all.
