Our client is seeking a Second Officer to join their 70+m charter program.  This yacht is completing an extensive yard period and will be running their charter program again in the Caribbean. They would prefer a Second who can join within 30 days to continue the refit. Candidates will be working as the Second Officer under two very well qualified Captains and will be rounding out the rotation period, the rotation schedule is 5 on and 1 off.  

Candidates must have the OOW license and note that as a commercially registered yacht, they run to full ISM/ISPS/MLC compliance – but they would love a candidate with the Chief Mate 3000 to be able to relieve the Chief on occasion.  Only male candidates can be considered. The Captain is putting together a stable team that works well together both with the owner when aboard and with the Charter Guests when on charter, so a team player with a good, happy attitude is required.  Personality counts on this one.  Candidates comfortable in a multi-cultural environment are strongly encouraged to apply. The position is a rotation with a 5:1 schedule that is a bit flexible based on the program’s needs. Required documentation:

STCW Issued OOW, ENG1 (current), Passport valid for a minimum of 12 months, B1/B2 if not US citizen/resident

The wages and benefits are good - but as per our policy, we do not share wages in either direction.  We will only bring you opportunities where we believe both sides will be able to come to an agreement on wages.

 To be considered for this position, you must meet all of the requirements in the post above.  Send your interest to jobs@preferredcrew.com  Put “Second Officer -1805”  in the subject line and it will go directly to the correct recruiter.
