What to Expect in a Sailing Crew Position
The individual roles of crew members will determine the specific job requirements and hours that they will work, but in general, crews are expected to cover the overall operation, maintenance, and success of a boat, ship, yacht, or superyacht on the water as well as care for the passengers.
These positions are typically customer-facing, which means you will be expected to understand the value of quality customer service while aboard. In addition, most crews develop friendships because of the close proximity and exciting lifestyle involved by exploring nautical delights all over the world.
Some things to watch for in your crew would be:
- Were the previous postings kept in working order?
- Do they have the experience required to manage their position under extreme situations?
- Are they willing to learn and fill in their knowledge gaps during a voyage?
- Can you get a face-to-face meeting, or at least a video call?
- Do they understand the basics of water storage, fuel needs, navigation, etc.?
- Do they value safety?
- Can they give you an example of quality customer service?
