Looking for a Deckhand, Lead Deckhand, Bosun or Purser position

I aim to secure a Deckhand position onboard a private or charter yacht. With over 4 years of yachting experience, 3 of which have been as a deckhand on board busy private yachts up to 78m, as well as heavy charter yachts up to 77m, I have proven success in managing all aspects of a deck and admin-interior team. I have had the opportunity to gain valuable purser experience for a year which motivated me to pursue a purser course which I am currently completing. I also had the priviledge of being selected by Hill Robinson for Red Sea week in October 2019 dealing with VIP UHNWI's. My responsibilities included day and night Harbour Master duties and working with the concierge to ensure that the UHNWI's needs and logistical requirements were met. Growing up near the ocean has allowed me to excel in tender driving, waterskiing, wakeboarding and surfing, and my patience in teaching guests new watersports and how to have fun on the water ensures a successful trip every time. I have extensive hospitality experience working in the top restaurants in South Africa, 5 years of cocktail bartending as well as hosting a ski chalet in Les Trois Vallees (Reberty) in the winter season of 2018/2019.
