1st Mate - Permanent - $Room, Board & All Travel Expenses - U.S. Virgin Islands

Seeking Crew to prepare boat for Trip from US Virgin Islands to Cuba, then Miami, Florida


We have a very unique situation.

We have a very highly respected charter boat business in the Virgin Islands where we conduct over 20 charters every year each season as the #1 rated charter boat in the entire Virgin Islands. Our sailing yacht is a 63' Trimaran with a 33' beam. You can see all about our boat and business at www.VirginIslandsSailingAdventures.com

After Hurricanes Irma and Maria in September, several of our charters canceled or rescheduled for next season, so we're going to take this season off and spend the time updating our boat and sailing the boat up to Florida from St Thomas US Virgin Islands probably stopping for a sightseeing trip through Cuba, on our way to Miami, Daytona Beach and finally Jacksonville.

What we are seeking:

We are seeking a crew that will join us onboard FREEDOM for a month as we prepare for the trip, and then make the trip with us to Florida.

This is a non-paid position, HOWEVER, we do pay for all your living expenses, giving you a nice cabin to live in, and we pay for all meals, fuel and dockage and all expenses for the trip. You will pay for nothing.

If you like, then after we reach Florida, you are welcome to stay onboard FREEDOM working in exchange for your room and board.

When our 2019 season starts in December 2018, we will be sailing FREEDOM back down to the Virgin Islands to operate another very busy charter season and we will be filling 4 positions onboard FREEDOM for the season... Captain, Chef, Hostess and Deckhand.

If this is of interest to you, our current need is for you to be able to travel to St Thomas US Virgin Islands as soon as possible to begin preparing the yacht for the trip. And if we have a crew suitable for operating charters, then we can stay for two charters that we have at the end of March and will split the gratuities equally between all crew members. Then after those two charters, we will then sail to Cuba and then Florida in April.

If this sounds like a great adventure to you, then please let us know right away, so we can plan accordingly to include you in our plan of action.

Please let me know your level of interest and any questions you have.
All the best,
Fredrick, Barbie & Zen-Len
