Superyacht

What do I need to work on a Superyacht?

To work onboard a Superyacht you need the desire to travel to different ports, a sense of adventure and most importantly a can do positive attitude, along with the right certificates and experience. You can start looking for your first position with the minimum required which we have packaged together in our Superyacht Crew Starter Package, but keep in mind that the more training you can add to your portfolio, the more you will stand out as the winning applicant.

The STCW 95 now also known as the updated STCW2010, or just STCW is the starting point for all positions and this is included in all three packages. You can fly in from Palma, Barcelona, Madrid, Italy or the UK direct to Malaga airport in Spain and have a free transfer to our training base and free accommodation during the course too. We even have people flying in from Canada, USA and Australia to join us for our STCW courses.  

Invest in yourself - invest in your next career.
