Mate

Category : Yacht Deck
Location/City : -

Our client is seeking a qualified Mate to join their 37m yacht in Florida for a permanent posting. The yacht is about to set off (early May) for the Bahamas and they would like to be fully crewed up before they do. They will be working a very traditional Bahamas / New England / Caribbean cruising route sticking to the usual hot-spots. They are moving from Private to Charter and would like to have somebody who is very hands-on as well as interested in learning more and more in their career.
The program is just coming out of a very successful refit (in the States) and also has a 34’ tender. The owners are quite active with travelling, and some diving, but this is not a heavy water-sports program other than fishing, and you can expect to be generally located in very yacht-friendly ports of call. There are no children on this program. Strong tender driving skills are beneficial, good communication skills and happy attitude are required. Candidates from Sail backgrounds will be given preferential consideration.
The Mate will be responsible for the paper-work (sorry about that) but will not be stuck in the office. The Mate will also work hand in hand with the deckhand to keep the exterior up and once trust is developed, the Mate will get wheel time, so candidates with an eye toward career growth will find this position very enticing. The Captain is a long-term, professional with a great personality and expects to work closely with the Mate (including sharing opportunities).
As a Cayman flagged yacht (Lloyds), all nationalities can be seriously considered and female candidates can be considered. Please note that this is a shared cabin but there is another open spot so some juggling may be possible.
Candidates must have:
Yachtmaster Offshore or larger
Valid Eng1
Valid Passport
Proof of STCW Basic Training
