So you want to be a superyacht captain?

A dream way of life

A superyacht captain is a highly qualified and professional skipper who specialises in commanding and managing luxury yachts over 24 metres in length.

Rewards for hard work and dedication

A career as a superyacht captain is demanding but rewarding. In return for hard work and dedication you’ll enjoy worldwide travel, earn a fantastic salary, and experience a way of life most people only ever dream of.

You’ll need bags of energy, a sense of adventure and a passion for the sea. You’ll be flexible and quick to adapt to an ever-changing environment.

As a superyacht captain you’ll be at the top of your game, responsible not only for the yacht itself, but also for its crew, itinerary and navigating safe passages across the oceans. You’ll be in control of budgeting, administration, refit projects, yard visits, personnel, health and safety, to name but a few.

Your role really will be all encompassing and you’ll answer to the yacht’s owner about all the decisions you make. It’ll take time and commitment to work your way up the deck officer ladder, but we’ll help you get started, and will continue to support and guide you every step of the way.
