Our Deckhand course content

This five-day intensive online course is guaranteed to teach you all you need to know to get you started in the yachting industry. A deckhand is an entry-level position aboard a yacht with primary duties including cleaning and maintenance of the exterior of luxury yacht. A deckhand is the lowest-ranked crew member in the deck department.  The deckhand position will have many duties but most importantly, he/she will maintain the exterior of the yacht and always keep it in good condition. You could be the only deckhand on board, but on larger superyachts, there may be more deckhands working.

Moreover, you can also get employed aboard on double position as Yacht Deckhand-Steward/ess, this being a strategic move due to the salaries that increase, more precisely they start from around 3.500€ compared to 2.500€ for the single position onboard.
