Chef - Rotational - €3.000 - 4.000 (starting salary freelancer) - General (Europe)

We are looking for a Sole Chef for one of our 3 sailing yachts - KAIROS, CHRONOS & RHEA.

Sailing-Classics runs yacht-sailing-cruises in the Mediterranean and Caribbean with 16-26 guests (cabin charter), combining authentic sailing with great comfort and high-quality service (4 meals a day, good cuisine), water sports, excursions, etc.

Our (sole) chefs are responsible for:
- provisioning of all food items to a given budget
- preparing all meals (breakfast buffet, 2 courses lunch, 3 courses dinner, fresh cakes/pastries) for up to 26 guests plus 10 crew
- keeping the galley in a clean and functional condition
- gathering continous feedback from the guests to meet their expectations towards the meals

Teamwork is an absolute must as well as collaborating with other departments and helping wherever needed.

Previous work experience in a similar job is essential as well as being able to cook during sailing. Changing day in the Mediterranean is usually on Saturday and there are only a few hours when there are not guests on board. Chefs usually go shopping during this time and other crew prepares the yacht for the next guests.

You need to be extremly guest-oriented and work close with the chief stew, captain and host regarding meal times and the daily schedule.

As we are sailing continuously with guests, life on board requires a certain lifestyle. Workdays are intense and long. Board and crew language is English, guests are mainly German speaking.

We do offer employment contracts as well as freelancing contracts.

For more information please check our homepage: https://www.sailing-classics.com or follow us on Instagram: sailingclassics

Posititon is available immediately or on arrangement.

If you are interested, please send your CV to our crewing department.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!

Sailing-Classics CV is based in the Netherlands, but there is a sales office in Stuttgart, Germany.

Nice company to grow up


I have 5 years with them and always getting rotations, even in Covid time. Started as a deckhand and stepping up to mate and captain. Easy and relaxed guests and usually nice crew atmosphere... Worth to give a try.
