Mechanic/Deckhand - Permanent - Min exp 2 years - $2000 - United States
Ahoy fellow shipmate and sailor!
Thank you in advance for submitting your interest for this position. I do read every one submitted profile with attention but cannot respond at length if I do not retained your proposal.
We are looking for actually looking for 2 crew member on sailing vessel SEA ANGEL. A couple team will be nice but we also considered individual with compatible qualification. The ideal combination would be a 1st mate with extensive sailing and boat maintenance experienced and interest with a matching cook /mate/ stewardess with a positive attitude.
You are require to have sailing experience to help with maneuver , navigation and watch. If you are looking toward gaining some valuable experience and enjoying the sailing lifestyle this situation could be ideal for you.
We are a couple owner / operator with a successful yacht charter track record and many years of hard earned experience. As such when we charter we are crew and when we don't, we are family. This year on sea angel will are looking to have a light charter schedule ( 4 or 5 weeks) (covid dependent and spend the rest of the time enjoying ourselves, doing maintenance, and cruising, Destination are the Bahamas for the winter and North East coast for the summer.
We have learned a few things about charter and crew and what we need. We provide a high end charter experience and we usually have a mate/steward on charter to help us with the service on board.
Of course, we are looking for an infinite number of qualifications in a crew mate, but we know that is not possible and are willing to adapt!!! What we are really looking for is capable help running and maintaining the boat and while having a pleasant team spirit on board. Exhibiting a respectful attitude toward each other and being considerate is paramount. A natural ability to be on a yacht and do a number of task is required. If you can cook and or be a galley hand it would be awesome. You also need to be a person with some experience running a yacht. If your are mechanically incline and able to help with maintenance even better. In either case, being a smaller boat, you need to be versatile, and hard working with plenty of initiatives on board to help with all tasks at hand. When not on charter, boat maintenance is the main activity and your skills will be welcome to either clean, varnish. polish , maintain equipment, etc..we are open to a few options such as solo mate/steward or team captain and a cook.
