I am looking mainly for a job - PAID crew position Stew/Cook/Deck on the sailboat or power boat, preferably 40-100 feet, with good work/life balance. I may consider volunteer position with exiting program and opportunity for learning more seamanship - in this rare and specific case, - ALL expenses, including transportation to and from boat, visas are covered by the boat owner) . Good vibe with the Captain and team is paramount. Ideally, would like to team up with the right Capitan to run the boat together for private owner and/or doing charters, with plenty amount of downtime to maintain the boat in good condition
I am an active, enthusiastic person with a great passion to travel, learn new skills, explore and discover unknown. I have a university degree in economics and management. Years ago I quit corporate career to change it to freedom of travel living, and head off to the high seas to work for the cruise ships
During my tenure of working on board cruise ships/floating hotels I acquired various professional experience in housekeeping, restaurant, and accounting services
I have made 2 seasons in Europe, 2 summers in Alaska, 1 season in South Asia, numerous times in Caribbean, East and West coasts of the USA. I have been in more than 60 countries and lived in some of them as well. Some of destination include Caribbean, Bermuda, Mediterranean, East and West coast of the USA, Hawaii, Asian coastal cities from Bangkok to Beijing.
Working for cruise ships was a lifetime memorable life-transformation experience but it is time to move forward to new journeys, destinations and discoveries.
Seeking practical skills in yacht / small boat industry that potentially provides more personalized atmosphere both for guests and for team, I took an offer to volunteer on a private 42-foot expedition catamaran solo with a captain and his friends, and experience was fascinating. My second boat was 58 foot Beneteau Oceanis /Baja Bash passage/ - great experience. The third one, 68-foot S/y Simple Harmony was a truly memorable. We maintained the boat, took a good care of it as it was our home with the captain. We sail her From New Port, RI down to Saint Barthelemy, than it was chartered for BVI-USVI.
I was in charge of all interior boat operation of the vessel such as cooking, maintaining the cleanness, provisioning. I also participated in watch keeping, sailing, navigating, rope handling, and docking the boat. I am able to plan, organize and make decisions to get the task done with minimum or no supervision.
I hold B1/B2 USA travel visa valid till 2024.I have crowd management, crisis management, firefighters and other related certificates.I speak English, Russian, Ukrainian and some Spanish.
I believe life is full of wonderful moments we create for yourself and others. With time passing by, I start to realize the true value of time. We cannot acquire more or less of our time but can make the best of its quality which depends totally on us.
I am positive and open minded, fun-loving, thoughtful,happy to learn, explore and share. My colleagues said I am mature, motivated, hard-working, responsible person who always applies golden rule into the job, communications and other relations, who is going extra mile to make a difference.
I love the nature, outdoors, photography, hiking, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking and other water activities. I am free to explore different destinations, sharing the stories and adventures.
Looking forward to hearing from you! Safe sailing!
