Looking for a Deckhand, Bosun, Delivery Crew or 1st Mate position
Looking for permanent or seasonal employment in the yachting industry on board of a sailing or motor yacht, no matter what position. It’s my goal to progress over the next years in order to become an officer / mate with engineering skills or, depending on the yacht’s size, a skipper.
I like teamwork and I have no issue with being an uncomplicated, dutiful teammate. I am more of a hands-on type of person with a positive attitude. I like hard physical work. I have worked as a stage construction assistant, as a fair builder and as a sailmaker for several years. During this time, we built sails for yachts up to 140 feet, then installed and tested them. I have been sailing since I was 13 and started on an old wooden lugger, where I learned the seamanship from scratch. Since then I have been sailing on a wide variety of dinghies, open keel boats, classic yachts and various other yachts for recreational, delivery and competitive purposes. I am very interested in working and in learning from other sailors and skippers experience and knowledge for achieving a long-lasting career in the yachting industry.
