Treating Yacht Crew with Respect

We work with people, not data

Matching Professional Yacht Crew with Great Yachts

You found our website – that means you must be looking for a job on a yacht. If that includes a ton of travel, working with a great team, getting out on the ocean, working your bum off and showing the owners and guests a great time – you are in the right place!

So, who are our clients? They own motor yachts from about 30 meters to 80 meters. They are private, floating luxury homes, travelling vacation spots, second (third, fourth, fifth) homes, entertainment venues. Our clients value the privacy and freedom that luxury yachts offer. Some cruise the traditional Mediterranean – Caribbean route, others slip through New England, or the US West Coast, many take extended trips into the Pacific to explore the islands of the Galapagos, the Far East, and a few truly adventurous owners take the yacht to the Antarctic! Really, the only limit to travel is the imagination!  

They hire professional Captains, properly experienced, well certified. Proper Officers with a long-term view of their career. Those Captains, in turn, hire happy, hardworking, professional, fun crew (yes even the Engineers) who are looking to put in the work and have a great time working with a team of like-minded yacht crew.

We can see why owners and guests love yachting – why do the crew?

This is full time work. Not a summer gig, not a gap year, not even freelance work. The expectations are high, but the rewards are outstanding. Solid wages (feel free to check out our Crew page for an idea of what that means), health benefits, worldwide travel, food prepared by a private Chef, exploring exotic ports of call, windsurfing the Caribbean, scuba in the Maldives, swimming…well, everywhere!

And when the time comes to move on, or move up, your time aboard has prepared you to choose where you go next – larger yachts, smaller yachts, even an extraordinary span of land-based positions where your honed skills are truly valued. The sky is the limit!

Sounds perfect…maybe even too good to be true!  

If you have never worked on a yacht and do not know what to expect, that would make sense, but our clients are seeking well experienced candidates. Each yacht has a training program that will both sharpen your general skills and give you great confidence on how the individual program is run. With each of our clients, there is room for growth – training, learning how to give and take constructive criticism, management skills.

Even skills that may not, at first glance, fall into the realm of what you might expect can become important. Water Sports (Wind Surf, Kite Board, E-Foil), diving with guests, even deep-sea fishing experience are all those additional skills that our clients love to hear about.  

Proper yacht crew are very physically active, but we never lose focus of the fact that this hard work is also fun – we are in the business of supplying the world’s most luxurious vacations, in a safety environment. That means care and excitement are properly blended.

Can it get a bit stuffy at times – yes. When a king or queen comes aboard it is not uncommon to have to put on the formal uniform. We do say “sir” and “madame,” we learn silver service, we learn to observe and anticipate the needs of guests. We treat the owner’s parents like the most important people on earth. We also crack a smile. We laugh out loud. We jump in the water with the kids. We hold the hand of that guest who is just not sure about the jet skis. We produce the most exquisite vacations on earth. 

What about the people you work with – the rest of the crew on the yacht? They are people similar to you – happy, outgoing, hardworking. You rely on each other. You know they are fulfilling their promise to you, you are fulfilling your promises to them. But they are also different. They come from literally every country on earth. Different cultures, foods, backgrounds, languages. You learn from them – they learn from you. You create bonds with these people that truly last your entire life.

This is yachting – we work hard and we have a great time doing it!

Any yachtie will tell you that once you have taken classes at the top maritime schools in Fort Lauderdale which include: Maritime Professional Training/MPT, Professional Yacht Training/PYT and Blue Water Training, the next step is networking.

Public transport in Fort Lauderdale is reasonably good, although many choose to rent a car or a scooter to get around. Other than a plethora of car rentals, you have the option to travel on airport shuttles, buses, taxis, the Sun Trolley, Uber/ Lyft as well as the train (TriRail) .

Traveling by public transport in South Florida is fairly easy, although during the evenings or on public holidays your options can be somewhat limited. If you are new to the area, just tell the driver where you need to go, and he will normally let you know when to get off.

As nearly anywhere else in the world, when you use public transport, remember to


Cases of crew having lost bags, phones etc. have been reported in the past.

With that said, only very few experience problems of that kind.

SAFETY TIP: Separately from the originals carry laminated copies of your passport, drivers license, bank cards etc. Make sure to back up all your certificates online as well.

In the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area you will find the following options of public transport;

On the Miami International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport homepages you will find the latest flight info updates as well as info about your ground transport options around South Florida.

Airport Shuttles:

The Super Shuttle Express has been around for a long time and is very popular with crew, tourists and business travellers alike. You have the option for private transportation as well as for shared rides by minibus (which are reasonably economical). Prices vary on your destination but are slightly cheaper than Lyft and Uber. You can book your shuttle here.

Single fares start at 2 dollars with various other options for multi-day or multi-fare passes at significantly reduced prices. Exact fare is required as the driver doesn’t carry change. For more information check out the Broward County Transport website. To get on the bus from the airport go to bus stop 7 by the Rental Car Center from where you can catch the BCT Route 1. All BCT routes can be found here.

Sun Trolley (Fort Lauderdale Community Shuttle):

YES, there is a FREE shuttle operating with five different routes around Fort Lauderdale including connections to/from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, the TriRail station, along the beach and downtown among others. From the airport the shuttle runs every hour from the lower level of T1, between T2/T3 and between T3/T4.

The individual routes can be located here.

The Tri-Rail train runs between Miami Airport and Mangonia Park, one stop beyond West Palm Beach. It is a cheap option to get to/from Miami Airport or Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, although you will need to get additional transport from the Tri-Rail stations in Fort Lauderdale (200 SW 21st Terrace) and Fort Lauderdale Airport Station to get to your crew house. In Fort Lauderdale Airport you will find free shuttle buses at the lower level of T1 (West end), between T2/T3 and between T3/T4. Admittedly, the airport shuttle will be a lot more convenient, although slightly more pricey.

Brightline :

With Brightline you can travel between Miami-FortLauderdale-West Palm Beach – and soon as far as Orlando (connection expected ready in 2022). If you use the Brightline+ app, they offer to pick you up or drop you off anywhere within 5 miles of the station.

Broward BCycle:

Broward BCycle describes their bike service as ”the no-hassles, no-polluting, green transportation solution to parking fees and gas prices”. What is there not to love about that!! On top of that you also get to stretch your legs, and if you can keep your ride to less than 30 mins, it doesn’t cost you a cent. You can find their bike-stations between Hollywood in the South, along SE 17th Street and up the beach as well as in downtown Lauderdale and up to Pompano Beach in the North. For rates and locations visit their website.

Remember to return the bicycle to a Bicycle station! Drive carefully. Fort Lauderdale is not a bike friendly city. It is recommended to wear a bike helmet at all times!

Uber / Lyft:

Both services work great in Florida. Download the app and book your ride – simple as that!

Foreign crew cannot legally seek employment while in the US. Dockwalking is considered illegal for foreign crew. Dockwalking is not encouraged in shipyards due to use of heavy machinery and risk of injury.


Dockwalking is not legal for foreign crew without a US work permit. A B1/B2 visa is not  considered  a work permit.


Here are a few pointers for first-time dockwalkers;

  • Daywork is often given to those, who arrive on the docks at 8am, dressed as a yachtsman (nice polo, khaki, black or blue shorts/pants/skirt and boat shoes), shaved, friendly and smiling. Girls, no need to overdo the make up. Hair tied up is fine. In other words; look professional.
  • Bring work clothes in your backpack, so you are ready for some dirty work.
  • Leave your skateboard at home some people say, although these days more and more are lenient about it. It’s your call, how you want to appear, but you do manage to cover a lot more ground, as you do with a bicycle which still seems more accepted. It is a hit or miss all depending on the person you speak to.
  • Make sure you have plenty of business cards printed up, keep your cv to 2 pages max (print on both sides) and stick it in a plastic sleeve (that increases the chances for it to actually reach the Captain’s desk!).
  • A good trick is to look on marinetraffic.com or www.vesselfinder.com to check on the names of the yachts in the harbour, then write them down. Each day see if new boats have entered the harbour against your list and go approach them first thing in the morning, while the deck crew is not too busy yet. Just be quick and precise, as they might have a short turn around before the next charter!
  • Try your luck in some of the smaller marinas as well. Perhaps, you will not find any large yachts, but small yachts can also do with a helping hand every once in a while – and you will have little competition there!
  • Another good time to look for work is between 16-17.00, when Captains and senior crew have a better idea about the following day’s schedule and workload.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask the same boats often. Just because they don’t have work today, doesn’t mean there will be none tomorrow or next week. It shows tremendous character. Some captains/first officers would see that resilience and give you work, whether temp or permanent.
  • If you see a yacht about to dock or about to leave offer to take the lines, when they throw them ashore. The crew will guide you where to put them. Once they have docked and the Mate (the guy guiding the captain into the berth over the radio) has a free moment, ask him if you can pass him your CV. Chances are they may be looking for a dayworker over the coming days, so don’t be shy!
  • When you are done dockwalking, meet up with other dockwalkers for a beer or a coffee in the afternoon (if you haven’t already). You can also head down to the beach together for a day out or perhaps go for a pizza later in the evening. Start getting some networking going and help each other. There is no doubt that networking is the most helpful tool you can use to find a job on a yacht – everyone does it, no matter the rank.
  • IF the yacht is busy with OWNERS/CHARTER, please do not disturb but continue to the next boat down the dock instead. A dead give away are flowers on the aft deck, crew in formal uniforms and of course guests/owners on deck.
  • At times crew has the weekend off (yes, it happens – sometimes). Try not to turn yourself into a “Dockstalker”, so RESPECT that and don’t disturb them by ringing doorbells on Saturdays and Sundays or any day outside 08.00-17.00 hrs. Neither during the lunch break, unless you see crew on deck, of course. Lunch is generally between Noon – 1pm or 1pm -2pm.

Finding out which ports are most popular with superyachts is essential to dockwalkers, obviously. Pick the brains of the others staying in your crew house or hostel. They will most likely know where to go. Some marinas will be much better for dockwalking than others. Some may be gated, while others may have easy access. Some may have lots of large yachts, while others are for small pleasure yachts with no professional crew on board.

And then there are the shipyards, where there is always work going on. They will usually have security by the gate, often with strict security measures. There is a good reason for that; other than providing security for their clients, with a lot of heavy machinery moving around and the type of work going on, dockwalking can be dangerous, in particular for newcomers to the industry. Generally, dockwalking is not recommended in shipyards. Instead try and meet crew in the yachty bars, where many will be hanging out after work.

Finding daywork is essential to your success with landing a job on a yacht. Through daywork you will learn so many new things, among others about life on board and how to do various jobs. Do notice that certain jobs are done differently from boat to boat, so pay good attention to the directions you are being given by the crew. What worked on the last boat you dayworked on may not work on this one!

Instead of posting jobs online or going through crew agents, some yachts hire dayworkers without telling them that there may be a position available on board. Supposing you are doing a great job, the captain will eventually make the decision whether or not he believes you fit in with the crew and possibly offer you a full-time position. If you are not offered a job, definitely pass your CV to either the captain or the Chief Officer / Chief Stewardess or Chief Engineer all depending on which department you have been dayworking in. Tell them you really enjoyed working with them and that you would like to be taken into consideration next time a position opens up. Meeting up for drinks after work is also a good way to get closer with the crew. It is all about networking!

Once you find daywork:

  • try to meet up 10 mins early for work every morning. Don’t ever be late – or hung over, for that sake… It will not hurt with a fresh daily shave either – it will be noticed. The Mate, Chief Stew and the Captain will remember you for either, so if you have hopes for landing a permanent job on board, then go out of your way to prove yourself.
  • Remember to take off your shoes before stepping on board (no shoes on deck is standard on ALL yachts – unless they are deck shoes, of course).

If the yacht is in a shipyard, ask if you may keep your shoes on, once the decks are covered This is  also a matter of safety. Broken toes and cut feet  are not at all uncommon on yachts.

  • If you are unsure about how to do a job, don’t be afraid to ask how they want it done and which products should be used. In fact, most officers appreciate when such questions are asked.
  • When you finish the job, you have been appointed, tell the crew instead of hanging around doing nothing/playing with your phone. Be a little bit proactive and do some cleaning in the area, you were working, if nobody is available. Always clean up after yourself in your workplace! Being nice and tidy will be noticed.
  • LIMIT YOUR MOBILE USE during work hours, and put it on silent (During breaks use of the phone is generally accepted but check with the department head first). Of course, if you are expecting a call from a boat regarding a job position explain so to the officer in charge. The best you can do is to leave your phone in your backpack, unless they use WhatsApp groups for work.

How much can you earn doing daywork?

Daywork rates for interior and exterior jobs vary slightly from boat to boat but count on somewhere between 100-120 Euros per day or 15 Euros per hour in the Med depending on experience and qualifications. In the US expect 120-150 USD or 15-20 USD per hour with little experience, but all the way up to 200 for the day with experience. These numbers may vary slightly depending on your experience and the yacht’s own policy.

Lunch is often offered on top of your salary, but not always.

Where to look for daywork online?

Crew agencies may post daywork from time to time, but you will be best off  using the Facebook groups

  • Fort Lauderdale Yacht Crew
  • Fort Lauderdale Yachties

as well as the job board on

There is little doubt that he large majority of crew jobs goes through word of mouth – far more than most will ever imagine!! For this reason, it is really important for you to start building a good network within the industry already from Day 1.

The more people, who knows you are looking for work, the larger are your chances of finding work. It is often seen that a yacht already employing a dayworker or two needs more dayworkers the following day. In such a case the captain will nearly always ask the dayworkers if they know of anyone else, who may be available. That’s where you get in the picture, but only if you have an established network. Here are a few of ideas of how to do that;

First off, establish a good reputation for yourself as being friendly and helpful – and be sociable.

  • When you do yachting courses meet up for a drink or two after training is over and connect with everyone attending the course on Facebook.
  • If you do your STCW and other entry-level training keep in touch with your fellow students.
  • Stay in a crew house instead of private accommodation.
  • If you stay in a crew house be sociable with everyone.
  • It is no secret that sailors like a drink or three. Neither is it a secret that the easiest way to meet yacht crew is either when dayworking or in the bars.
  • When you daywork, be friendly and sociable with everyone on board– without interfering with their work. You may run into them in the bar one of the coming days or perhaps in years from now on a different yacht!
  • Try not to miss out on any yachting events such as boat shows, crew events, webinars or crew dinners. These events will normally be announced ahead of time in the Yacht Crew Facebook groups, among others.
  • When you meet people in the industry, share your business card and within reason ask them if you may add that person on Facebook.
  • Use Facebook to build your network. Set up an account purely for yachting and add other yachties and industry professionals. Be active with posting photos etc., which gives them something to comment on. Make sure, they can tag you in job posts.
  • In the Facebook groups  Fort Lauderdale Yacht Crew,   Fort Lauderdale Yachties and Newport Yacht Crew  (if you will be heading to New England) ask if anyone might be interested to meet up. You could ask if there is anyone from your country in town or if there is anyone interested in participating in an activity that you both share (rent a car together and go exploring for the weekend, go for a run, go to the beach, go on a hike, go to the movies, go for a drink, go to watch rugby or Champions League in a bar, go out for a pizza etc.). Use Facebook to your advantage.

After work many crew venture out for a few drinks just to get off the boat for a little while. Yachties tend to frequent the same bars, no matter where in the world, they are located. Unfortunately, some legendary bars and restaurants have shut down in South Florida over the years, often due to developers moving in. Fortunately, others have opened since then and will continue to do so.  Some of the more popular crew bars in South Florida are;

  • Waxy’s Irish Pub  *
  • The Village Well  *
  • Flanagan’s Quarterdeck  *
  • Southport Raw Bar
  • Marina 84  *
  • Monty’s (Miami Beach Marina)

* Good for sports – Waxy’s and Marina 84 will usually show international Rugby and Soccer. Call ahead to hear if your game is on – or check their Facebook pages. Most bars will show the usual American sports such as baseball, basketball, football, hockey and golf.

You can also meet yacht crew in nearly any other local marina bar as well as along Lauderdale Beach.

Be social, open-minded and have fun! Just keep in mind that potential future employers or crew agents may also be frequenting those same bars. It may be easier said than done; behave…

Long story short, making a good name for yourself and being proactive in your quest to build a larger network will pay off, eventually. The more people you know, the larger are the chances that work will come to you. Good luck to you!!

Whether you are in town for a day, a week or an indefinite amount of time, there is always fun and a good time to be had in Fort Lauderdale and beyond! In South Florida you will find things to do for everybody whether it be shopping malls, concerts, museums, nature walks, dive- and fishing trips, world class golf courses, great restaurants and nightlife and not to forget the beaches, always perfect for people watching and a stroll along the sea.

Fort Lauderdale is also located very conveniently for those, who would like to explore beyond the city, in particular on weekends or days off. In a relatively short time you can hang out with Mickey Mouse in Disney World or the beautiful people on South Beach, watch a live space launch at the Kennedy Space Center, go for a dive in the Florida Keys, jump on an airboat tour of The Everglades or swim with manatees in the Crystal River. In fact, you are spoiled with options to choose between!


Roughly, count on the following approximate drive times from Fort Lauderdale (all depending on traffic);

West Palm Beach – 45 mins

Orlando – 3h 15 mins (DisneyWorld, Universal Studios, Sea World, Kennedy Space Center etc.)

Miami – 45 mins

Key Largo – 1h 40 mins

Key West – 4 hours

Everglades City – 1h 30 mins

Naples – 1h 40 mins

Tampa – 4h

Watch out for the Highway Patrol speed radars, in particular in the Florida Keys!!

What does yacht crew do with their free time on days off in South Florida? It is not far from the truth to say that there is an option for each day of the year, yet crew often end up doing the exact same thing; either hanging out on board or going for drink somewhere along the beach. Admittedly, it is a bit of a generalisation, but most will probably agree that only a very small percentage of crew explore the many parks found in or around Broward County. Considering the many experiences there are to be had along with the opportunity to enjoy the local nature trails, this little mini-guide is meant to promote healthy and fun activities as well as to expand your knowledge of Fort Lauderdale and beyond.

Among others you will find activities such as

  • Nature Trails
  • Birding and wildlife viewing / photography
  • water skiing / wake boarding
  • Rollerblading
  • Equestrian Trails
  • Jogging Paths
  • Walking Paths
  • Bike Trails
  • Picnic Areas
