Superyacht Stewardess Course
Our Superyacht Stewardess Course offers our candidates everything they need to start looking for work as a Superyacht Steward or Stewardess, and is strongly recommended to those starting out in the industry.
Working as a Stewardess in the superyacht industry is a career like no other. The starting salary for an entry level Steward/ess is around €2,500 per month tax-free depending on your nationality, and that excludes any additional tips you may receive from the likes of Justin Bieber, Beyoncé or J-Lo. Keep in mind that accommodation, food, uniform and basic toiletries are all included onboard so you have the potential to save large amounts, all whilst being paid to travel the world!
The primary task of a Steward or Stewardess onboard is to maintain the interior or the luxury yacht to the highest standard. You will also be required to cater to the needs of yacht owners or charter guests. Service, housekeeping and laundry form the three main departments of the stewardess responsibilities. Food hygiene and safe food preparation are also a major component of working as a stewardess on a super yacht.
