Summer is here, and with it, all the anticipation of new places to cruise, old friends to catch up with, and more yacht jobs available during the fun filled summer season. There is nothing like the feel of the sun on your skin to create the desire to gaze at the water and travel upon it. Crew members and owners, alike, have thoughts turning to getting their vessels ready for the idyllic days of summer.
This time of year brings the opportunity to move into a yacht crew position that suits your career ambitions. Hopefully the winter has been spent in the classroom, and everyone is ready to use those hard earned certificates. Yacht owners are smart to consider the influx of new talent at this time of year, to find any crew members with special talents that they may be looking for.
The winter season of cruising in the Bahamas, South Florida and Caribbean has come to a close and plans are being made to move north to New England, the Chesapeake Bay and east to the Med. The opportunity for charters to exotic locations is always optimum in the summer season.
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.
