Our client, a private 40 M US documented boat, is looking for a Mate to join the boat in ASAP.   There is a deckhand on board, so there is help on deck. There is a total of 8 crew which is large for that sized boat. Good experience is desired.  Normally the summers are spent in New England or Michigan, but this year there will be a few trips to the Keys and Bahamas and a long yard period in Fort Lauderdale.  The winters are spent in Florida, with occasional trips to the Bahamas. The benefits are good, including medical insurance and 401K. They would love someone looking for a long term commitment, but will consider someone in a temporary role.  When in Ft Lauderdale some of the crew go home at night if they are not on watch.  Having owned boats for years the owners and their family are known to be great to work for.  If you are looking for a stable program, this is a good one. Documents needed Eng 1, STCW 95, a USCG  license good, but  necessary, and a US Passport.  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
