As Generation Z (people born in the mid-nineties) enters the yachting industry, a broad range of skills are expected. Language skills are always appreciated and we have recently sought candidates for French and Russian-speaking yacht jobs. If you are Russian-speaking, yacht jobs this month include a position as a Chief Stew with a minimum of two years’ experience on a 60-metre+ yacht.
Being a stew is one of the most important superyacht jobs when it comes to providing a 5-star experience for guests. Yacht stews are expected to keep the boat clean and tidy, do laundry, assist in inventory and supplies, arrange flowers and carry out other housekeeping duties, as well as helping with silver service and bartending duties. As rewarding as yacht stew jobs may be, they also involve long hours and plenty of responsibility. That’s why we’ve put together these five hacks to make your yacht stew duties easier.
Even at the height of the Mediterranean season, it’s not too late to find yacht jobs for the summer. Please don’t forget to use the great resources on our website to help you. You’ll find plenty of crew advice, as well as descriptions of the qualifications required for all types of yacht jobs and superyacht jobs.
In an industry that is male-dominated, female captains are still a rarity. But as more and more female yacht crew members continue to gain significant experience and rise in the rankings, the tide is beginning to turn. Look no further than the success of Captain Sandy Yawn to see what can be achieved! However, it still is not easy for female crew to break through that glass ceiling.
The Mediterranean season is in full swing but it’s not too late to find a new career opportunity. If you’re a Masseuse, Nurse, Service Stew, Housekeeper or Spa Therapist, yacht jobs are plentiful at the moment if you have at least one year of experience.
