Looking for a Captain, 1st Mate or Captain/Engineer position

I work as a professional skipper with a Spanish license for sail and motor yachts (Patrón Profesional de Embarcaciones de Recreo, PPER) and also work on foreign flag yachts with RYA/MCA Yachtmaster Ocean Sail certificate with commercial endorsement (Master 200)

I have been sailing S/Y 38’ to 62’ as a self-employed skipper for the past 5 years and it has become my main professional activity for the last 4 years.
I just finalized a one year contract as Solo Captain-Engineer on-board a 20m British-flagged Trader M/Y cruising the Med with the live aboard owners and sometimes their guests, where I have accrued a broad set of experience and knowledge of M/Y, but for my career progress towards Master 500 and higher certificates, I need to move on and embark on a 25m yacht.
I‘m a keen sailor, have a wide range of engineering skills and a can-do attitude which has taken me this far. I am a confident sailor with good seamanship, familiar with night watch and navigation rules. Confident in handling lines and maneuvering and well understand the roles of Captain and Mate.
I have experience in use, maintenance and service of all common equipment on board: engine, genset, aircon, water-maker, water heater, air heaters, hydraulic systems, air compressor, battery charger, power banks, cranes, davits, tender, outboard, etc.
I am able to troubleshoot, and track the malfunction of most electronic and mechanical devices and solve the issue without supervision. I am able to completely maintain the exterior of the vessel with the correct products and to keep the yacht ship-shape.
