I'm Jamila García

I help people who are looking for a rewarding career, who are passionate about traveling, to
get a job as crew on a luxury yacht.

As a result of my many years of experience working as a Chief Stewardess, I can provide you
with all the tools and information required in order to make your job search as effective, fast
and with the least expense as possible.

I'll be honest, getting your first job in this industry without any help is not easy.

If you think that ...

You need to be "lucky" to get a job like this

You are “too old” to change your life and pursue your dreams

Only supermodels get jobs on yachts

You do not have enough money to pay for the job search

This job is only for people with many studies and who speak ten languages

You do not have any marine work related experience, so no yacht will want to hire you

You could not spend your life at sea without being able to even visit all the places you will travel to

What if, after all the effort, you do not get it?

Jamila García Lillo, from Foz (a small town on the Spanish North West coast).

I studied Advertising and Public Relations and I achieved a Masters in Protocol and Events Organisatin at University in Madrid. I have been a superyacht Chief Stewardess for many

CEO of Starfish Crew.

I had always been certain that I did not want to spend my life locked in an office fulfilling other people’s dreams.

During my university years, I used to spend the days thinking over and over about what job could satisfy my desire to travel the world and also receive a generous salary for it (I have
always aspired to have a ‘good life’).

The fearsome Spanish depression was already lurking and I refused to imagine my immediate future in the unemployment queue.

However, having great aspirations is not that easy when you come from a small town, you grew up in a middle-class family, everyone takes you for "crazy" when you talk about your aspirations of life, and do not have enough financial resources either.

During the summers of my university years, thanks to the scholarships I received for my good grades at the University, I was fortunate enough to have travelled to the United Kingdom to perfect my English. I knew that speaking excellent English would be very important to get a job like the one I wanted.
Although, in all honesty, I did not know exactly the job I wanted. I was very clear about the job I did NOT.

During those summers, I worked as whatever so I could afford my hostel bedroom (shared with five other people) plus the English course. Therefore, I am perfectly aware of how living
day to day and not even being able to allow yourself a whim feels.

I grew up in Foz, a small fishermens town on the coast of Lugo, Galicia, Spain.

There, the passion for the sea, breaths on every corner.

In addition to the sea and travel, my other great passion has always been customer service. Probably as the result of belonging to a hospitality family for generations.

And so, almost as if by chance, one day, I received a call that would change my life ...

You have seen me in ...

Decidí contratar los servicios de Starfish Crew porque vi que Jamila conocía el mundo de los yates de la A a la Z y yo lo desconocía totalmente. Jamila tiene muy buena disposición a ayudarte. ¡Por supuesto que la recomendaría y volvería a contratar sus servicios!

Plan de Asesoramiento As de Guía

Nine years have gone by since I set foot on my first yacht. My new job, and new life, fascinated me from the start.

I worked with all enthusiasm and was always happy to do whatever the Chief Stewardess asked me to, no matter how “unpleasant” that task was and how little I liked it.

Maybe that’s the reason why I moved up so quickly.

In the space of a few months I had already become the Second Stewardess of a 56 metre motor yacht with 13 crew members, and in little over a year, Chief Stewardess.

Since then, and although I can not reveal names, I have worked for some of the most powerful people in the world.

I have worked in many superyachts, of very diverse nature, being in charge of making the stay of my guests a dream.

I can proudly say that many of the hostesses that I hired over the years, completely new to the industry, have now gone on to become some of the best Chief Stewardesses in the Superyacht industry.

As time went by and people were getting to know my story, I started receiving numerous emails, messages or calls asking for all kinds of information about how to get a job like mine.
This is how Starfish Crew was born, and my greatest  achievement is, without a doubt, to positively influence the lives of all those who decide to call on me to guide you on your
journey to achieve your dreams.

There is nothing more rewarding for me than receiving emails from all those people I have helped over the years telling me that they have achieved their dream of working on a luxury
yacht and are very happy with their new life.
