Deckhand - Rotational - €1.200 - General (Europe)

Sailing-Classics is looking for an experienced Deckhand on board its 3 sailing yachts (Schooner KAIROS 38m; ketch CHRONOS & RHEA each 54m)

Sailing experience is absolutely necessary; experience with charter guests would be a big advantage.

MANDATORY Requirements (as per safe manning):
• Seaman’s book
• Valid Medical Certificate (ENG1)
• Valid Basic Safety certificate (STCW’95)
• STWC Certificate of Competency (CoC) Rating Deck forming part of Navigational Watch (it has to be exactly this certificate, an equivalent is not an option!)

Sailing-Classics runs yacht-sailing-cruises in the Mediterranean and Caribbean with 16-26 guests (cabin charter), combining authentic sailing without fixed schedule with great comfort and high-quality service (4 meals a day, good cuisine), water sports, excursions, etc.

As we are sailing continuously with guests, life on board requires a certain lifestyle. Every crewmember represents the company and is responsible for guests’ well-being. Workdays are intense and long. Board language is English (and German, as most guests are German speaking)

What you get:
•Working periods 2-3 months, preferable on a rotational, long term basis
•Fair salary (about 1.200€/month) + tip
•Sailing-Classics covers travel costs, accommodation, food, etc.
