On average a junior yacht stewardess can expect to earn anywhere between $2,700 and $3,200 per month, depending on the size of the vessel they are working on. This could be someone who has never worked as a stewardess before, or who has spent a short time in the role.
As you gain more experience – on a larger yacht this may mean a promotion to second stew, sharing some responsibilities with the chief stewardess – earnings can increase to an average of between $3,300 to $5,500 per month. Again, your yacht stewardess salary at this level depends on the size of yacht, your training and certification.
In the senior role of chief stewardess, salary can be anywhere between $4,500 to $9,000+ per month, with the job requiring by far the most responsibilities of the interior team.
The typical yacht stewardess salary varies a lot from yacht to yacht, however these estimates provide a rough idea of how you can progress.
