Our client, a private 50+M yacht, is looking for a Bosun to join them. Based on the West Coast the owner is a SERIOUSLY avid fisherman. Their itinerary is very much off the beaten track – West Coast of Mexico / US / Canada and a great amount of time in Alaska. They fish…a lot. You will be helping the guests with their catch and a good day is completely focused on their fishing experience. Tender driving is required, meaning this is a skill you already have. A normal summer day is up early and out on the water in the fishing tender with the owner and his guests with a lunch packed by the Chef in a cooler, then later in the afternoon back to the boat - repeated the next day. You can see why fishing experience required.
This is a true Bosun position. You will know how to do almost everything on Deck and you are ready to lead the other two boys to success. The Captain and the First Officer are very hands off and you run the show. You will train the newer deckhand up to your standards, and assist the more experienced Deckhand in his career path. They are looking for a 2 year commitment – and it is well worth it!
You are still open minded (never will we hear “that is not the way we did it on our last boat”).
Alaska is cold – and we mean COLD. If you are not interested in a cold environment for ½ of the year, this is not for you. By the way, the West Coast of Mexico is HOT – think 95F with a load of humidity – so this boat is in extremes.
So – you love adventure, you love fishing, you love hard work and being part of a great team. What are the requirements?
US Citizen only. Male candidates. US ticket of some sort (even just the 6 pack). Medical Fit for Duty in hand and valid. STCW Basic Training. Driver’s license (any). No smokers. Tattoos under a t-shirt and shorts are just fine. No DUI in history.
The wages and benefits (including paid leave for education) are good. The final offer will depend on your skills and experience.
Please remember that with all positions we present, we do not share wages in either direction, but will only bring you opportunities where we believe both sides will come to a happy agreement
