Watch: Still sailing! - Sept 2020

Captain/Engineer - Temporary / Seasonal - Min exp 3 years - €2500 - Greece

We are looking for a liveaboard skipper/engineer to join our team this summer. Yes, the clients are coming back, at last !! Our current engineer is retiring, so we need someone to fill his technical shoes. This is an **essential** requirement; practical hands-on experience on sailboats, not just an RYA "marine engineering" course. Yes, you still get to do the fun bit too, out sailing with our very cool clients!

On the skippering side - previous flotilla or similar experience is extremely valuable, both for the fun/easy-going attitude needed and esp for the "Med mooring" skills! You need to be a sociable, easy-going person, who thrives on developing a great team spirit amongst our liveaboard guests.

ABOUT US:
We're a small, owner-operated charter company with 50' monohulls in the Dodecanese islands of Greece, and a 55' catamaran in Thailand. We run both the usual skippered charters for private groups, and also have our little "niche" market of shareboats - matching up individuals and couples to join a shared sailing adventure. This is how we grew the business in the early days, and it's still going strong!

Our clientele range from zero sailing experience to people who've owned boats for decades; it's the skipper's job to blend these diverse people into a fun, dynamic team. We do our best to weed out the "cruise ship" types, so our guests are the active, adventurous ones - it's not hard to meld them into a close-knit, fun group.

The islands where we sail are the smaller, off-the-beaten-track ones, where we've been sailing for the past 20+ years. We're pretty much "part of the family" by now, and the welcome we get from our local families makes everyone feel right at home instantly.

The downside of this remoteness is that if anything goes wrong on the boat - you need to fix it ! There's no-one else on standby; you need creative practical skills, and keep things running smoothly with a smile on your face (yes, even if it is a blocked head!)

We have our own extensive workshop facilities in home base, we just need someone who knows how to use them!

OWNER / SKIPPER OPPORTUNITY

We have a network of partner boats with whom we work - all small operations who genuinely care that their guests have the best time ever. We have an opening for someone to join our Dodecanese team on this basis; either with your own boat, or we can help finance one of our existing boats. This is a longterm deal, not something to be rushed into; being able to meet anyone interested in person is vital from both sides.
