Spring and Summer is the time for change and new beginnings.
The longer and warmer days have yachts cruising New England, Alaska or Europe to be able to enjoy cruising closer to home and to include more friends for local adventures or for some to experience new areas to explore.
Yacht crew traditionally always look forward to the season change and anticipate the busy summer months when more boating and entertaining is done. More yacht crew are usually hired to accommodate the extra guests and supply the skills needed for the water toys and sports. The time to position yourself to have the summer position on a yacht that you may wish for is now.
Owners have the best opportunity to add new crew with unique skills that will make the summer cruising for themselves and their guests memorably unique and pleasurable. The selection of crew available is always higher in the spring when the boats and crew reposition themselves for the upcoming season.
Crewfinders has supplied yacht crew to some of the best yachts on the water and is currently searching for a number of applicants with specialized talents. Let us know if you think you have exceptional skills to offer. We will be happy to hear from you.
Our placements are still being done remotely by phone and e-mail with good success. In person meetings will resume at a later date.
The Crewfinders Average Starting Salary Guidelines gives an idea of the current salaries being paid. Our weekly updated Positions Page gives a snapshot of our crew positions currently available. Additional positions become available daily and you will be considered for them upon registration.
Please see the new pages for Yacht Captains Seeking Crew and Chief Stews & Pursers Seeking Crew to help those yacht officers looking for crew with information and forms to use. Also see our FAQ Page for helpful information for yacht crew seeking jobs.
