1st Mate - Permanent - $Room, Board & All Travel Expenses - U.S. Virgin Islands

Seeking big dreamers / hard workers to prepare boat for Trip from US Virgin Islands down-island to Grenadines (and back)

Ahoy! We have a very unique situation.

We have a highly respected charter boat business in the Virgin Islands where we conduct over 20 charters each season as the #1 rated charter boat in the entire Virgin Islands. You can see all about our boat and business at www.VirginIslandsSailingAdventures.com

Our sailing yacht, Freedom, is a 63' Trimaran with a 33' beam. We were one of only a few boats to survive the two Category-5 hurricanes of 2017 virtually unscathed. She is a very solid bluewater boat.

What we are seeking:

During the off-season, we invite interns to join us. Interns typically have little or no experience on sailboats, but dream of life on the water. Interns must have good character, a strong work ethic and a deep desire to learn. Interns will "learn by doing", as we prepare Freedom for this year's bluewater adventure, and then set sail. We hope to visit 50% of the islands in the Lesser Antilles, as we make our way to the Grenadines. (and later, a return sail).

This is a NON-paid position. HOWEVER, we do pay for all your living expenses, providing living quarters aboard Freedom, 3 meals each day, and covering all fuel, dockage, and other related expenses of the trip.

We have chores, maintenance, cleaning, repairs, and upgrades that will be performed before, during, and after our bluewater adventure, where you will learn every skill imaginable to operate & maintain a charter boat, as well as HOW to deliver a "Best-Ever" vacation experience for charter guests.

Before our 2020 season starts in December 2019, we will be sailing FREEDOM back up to the Virgin Islands for another busy charter season, filling 4 crew positions onboard FREEDOM for the season... Captain, Chef, Hostess and Deckhand.

If this sounds like a great adventure, and the fastest way for you to gain the knowledge, skill, & experiece to begin living your dreams of life on the water... what are you waiting for?

I am happy to provide specific details to all inquiries. Contact me.
Best regards,
Captain Zen-Len, s/y Freedom
