With lots of practical experience on deck including washhdowns, line handling, anchoring and standing watches on passages and at anchor, complemented by plenty of tender driving extending to guest pick-ups and watersports, I intend to be a valuable addition to your crew.
Looking for a permanent position on a busy charter yacht with a professional and friendly atmosphere as an experienced deckhand and dive guide, I would like to forge a long lasting career. I plan to take my Yachtmaster Offshore exams soon, and have already begun working towards the OOW qualification.
