Captain Team

Category : Yacht Deck
Location/City : - WPB

Our client has an amazing opportunity for a US Captain, or a US Captain / Cook team to join their very active, 78’ Little Harbor Sailing Yacht. The yacht lives ½ of the year in Palm Beach County – with trips to the Bahamas and ½ of the year in Newport, Rhode Island – with trips around the Cape, Martha’s Vineyard, etc.
The owners are avid sailors and use the boat frequently (longer trips are 2 weeks – give or take, shorter trips are weekends). About half of the time they will come alone, but the other half will come with one or two adult couples (the children are all grown).
When aboard, the owners do not sit stern-to, rather they love to go out for a day of sailing (think 5 hours) and definitely participate in races and regattas. Captains with race experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
They do enjoy a higher level of food and wine which does include plated service when possible.
For a couple – the Captain’s cabin is a good size, with a double bed. For non-teams, there is another crew cabin with two bunks. Please know that it is a shared head. The crew space is forward of the galley (which is a good size).
We are stressing that great attitude and strong, hands on work ethic is what will get you this position. The owners are happy, well balanced people who have been long term yacht owners. The Captain who is leaving has decided to go land based as his young family is growing.
Some kind of US license would be nice to see, but that is more from the insurance company than they owner, but good, solid sailing experience is a must.
They can hire at any time but they are not in a rush – they are happy to hold out for the right crew. Captains will get a complete handover from the existing Captain. Just to state it again, this is a US Flagged boat and they do require US Citizens or Green Card holders.
