Have you ever considered working on board a superyacht?
Superyachts travel to some of the most highly sought after locations, frequently exploring incredible regions that are off the beaten track and often accessible only by water.
And the best part is, Australian crew are in high demand! With the majority of Australian’s having grown up on and around the water, Australian crew are highly sought after for their ocean-loving backgrounds and knowledge.
The superyacht industry is currently booming with many new yachts under construction. With a 3-5 year wait for delivery of a custom superyacht, there is a large superyacht crew shortage. The industry will need an additional 22,000 crew to work on these new vessels before 2030. This is in addition to the usual crew turnover on yachts currently cruising all over the world.
If you are undecided on your future, a gap year working on a superyacht is a great opportunity to be paid to travel the world. Working as a crew member delivers plenty of potential to work your way up the ranks and to build a career in the yachting industry, all whilst travelling the world and saving money
Superyacht Australia has recently published a ‘Superyacht Careers’ booklet to provide an entry level introduction to the superyacht industry including the required qualifications and role descriptions for candidates to start their careers. The booklet is available now as an e-book which can be viewed HERE.
It will also be available at future Marine Jobs events, including:
- Perth Careers and Employment Expo
- Sydney International Boat Show
- Henderson Careers Open Day
