Working on a yacht is one of the best ways to travel the world, earn cash, and live on a floating palace on the water (for free!)
The process of uprooting your entire life to pursue a job in the yachting industry can be daunting.
In The Yacht Job Handbook, I'll walk you through the entire process of getting a job on a yacht. I’m going to break down this process into a step-by-step formula that will serve as a roadmap to help fast-track your career so that you can start getting paid to live, work, and travel the world on a luxurious yacht. I'm going to help you:
Your new life is waiting for you…
"This guide was incredibly detailed and answered so many questions. It provided me the knowledge I needed to build up the courage to move across the country and get my yachting certification. Now I have a full time job working on a yacht. If you want to get into yachting, this is a must read!"
"What a thorough handbook! It answered every question I had and didn't know I had. I really like all the different aspects of it: definitions, schedules, crew hierachy, lists/reasons, roadmaps, planners, along with all the written knowledge. I stayed intrigued the whole time. I have a better understanding of each part of this career now."

Some people like to take the most efficient way, and then there are people like me… Let’s just say I took the “scenic route.” If you follow my journey on the map from point A to Sea- it’s easy to see that I swerved off course just about every step of the way.
Although I did eventually reach my destination, I left a lot of mistakes in my wake. I could have saved myself a lot of time, effort, money, and embarrassment if I had been more strategic, and used the proper knowledge, tools, and techniques to propel me forward.
