The Pros And Cons Of Yachting
The Pros: Depending on your yacht, you will have the chance to sail and experience the beauty of both the Mediterranean and Caribbean like few others. And as a deckhand or maid, your salary will generally start at around 2500 Euro a month. Since room and board is included, the majority of your salary can be saved. Your room will be a spacious and comfortable cabin, and your board you will consist of an open fridge and meals cooked by the yacht’s chef.
The Cons: Work as a crew member can at times be arduous and exhausting. During crossings, it is not uncommon to work for days with little or no sleep. Similarly, when the owner is on board, you can expect to work long hours entertaining his guests.
Yachting isn’t for everyone. If you are prone to seasickness and arn’t into entertaining snobs than you should definitely pass. However, if you can handle the hardships and you enjoy sailing the world while simultaneously saving money, then becoming crew aboard a luxury yacht might be the path for you.
Good luck and safe travels,
