Deckhand and bosun jobs that could take you anywhere

Our yacht deckhand jobs typically start in South FL, New England, the Caribbean or the Med, but they can take you anywhere in the world. If you’ve ever dreamt of exploring Fiji’s lush rainforests, hopping between black-sand beaches on the Windward Islands or traversing the stunning Norweigan Fjords, our deckhand and bosun jobs are for you. We also cater to all experience levels and boat sizes, from 20 to 80+ meters.

Yacht deckhand jobs are a great place from which to work your way up in the yachting industry, leading to bosun jobs (meaning an increased bosun salary!) which can then progress into an officer role with the right training. All the while, you’ll be making friends for life, learning valuable life skills that will help you in whatever you do, and spending your downtime in some seriously cool vacation hotspots. Yes it will be a hard day’s work, ensuring the deck and general exterior of the vessel is kept spotless and sparkling at all times, but the rewards are worth it. Did someone say dream job?
