How much does an Engineer on a yacht earn?

On yachts 65m and below, charter salaries outperform private salaries; however the roles are reversed on larger yachts over 66m, where chief engineers on private yachts earn more than their colleagues on charter vessels. The salary for a chief engineer starts at €5000 and the greatest earning potential is to be had with permanent contracts on board yachts 101m+ where a chief engineer on a permanent contract commands an average monthly salary greater than €12000.
109 second engineers contributed with their salaries and those with permanent contracts on the three largest categories of yachts – 66-80m, 81-100m, 101+m – had the greatest average monthly salary of over €6000. In the two largest categories of yachts – 81-100m and 101m+, there is also little discrepancy between the salaries of permanent and rotational crew. The average salary for a second engineer starts at around €5000 a month.
