Looking for a Deckhand position on a Private/Charter Sail/Motor Yacht

To whom it may concern,
My name is Julian Marais, and I am a healthy 28-year-old South African male, with a valid pass-port, Schengen Seafarers visa and Seaman’s book. I am available immediately.
I pride myself in being a polite, self-motivated individual with a positive attitude. I am comfortable working long hours and recognize the importance of fitting into a tightly functioning crew.
In addition to being a certified deckhand, I have also completed my sailing Internship on both a 42 FT Sail and a 38 FT Motor Catamaran. I have gained 300 NM during my internship and gained so much experience from sailing and knots to climbing the mast. Further I have previously worked on various Catamarans in Cape Town (SA) and Croatia.
My primary focus is to obtain a permanent or seasonal position as a deckhand on a Charter or Private Motor / Sailing Yacht with the vision of increasing my skill set and knowledge to further enhance the overall yachting experience.

I understand that the competition in this industry is high, but I won’t let you down.
I am committed to maintaining a high standard of safety, service and efficiency and confident that I can excel in this fast-paced environment.

Thank you for considering my application, awaiting your positive reply and interest pertaining to my CV and reference checks.
Julian Marais
