Find out how to make a perfect interview to achieve a position as a sailor in luxury yachts

The questions that every recruiter does, with the answers you should give to impress your recruiter and get your dream job


If you think that ...

You would not be able to pass an interview for luxury yachts successfully since you do not know anything about this industry

Your English is not good enough to do a job interview

You do not have any work experience or training for the recruiter to choose you, over anyone else

You have been looking for a rewarding job for so long that you’ll be stuck, you will not know what to say, or how to say it, and your interview will be a disaster

Well, pay attention to this. It turns out that you have nothing to worry about!

When I did my first interview, I had absolutely no idea about what was going on. LITERALLY.

I had not seen a yacht in my life, apart from in the movies.

In Foz, my beloved little hometown, we only have fishing boats, the kind that fish sardines and other delicacies.

But, superyachts? No, we don’t have that…

Anyways, I showed up at the interview with very little (VERY LITTLE) faith in myself and thinking that this would be just like any other day in my life. I would leave that office, return to my student apartment, and continue with my jo hunt. As I had been doing every single day, for a long time. As I had been doing every single day, for a long time.

However, it turned out that the recruiter interviewing me didn’t care at all about the fact that I had absolutely no clue about the superyacht industry: "You have lots of time to learn how this works," he told me.

My English was good (ish) at the time, but not that good to be honest, so I really had to focus on what I was doing to not seem ridiculous.

And it turned out that it was not that bad after all.

Needless to say, I did not have any experience on yachts, although I had had many odd jobs here and there.

As for my qualifications, I did not have anything related to yachts (not even my STCW).

And, well ... to tell you the truth, I did not get stuck to be honest… As I said before, I showed up at the interview quite relaxed as I really had no hope to get the job.

Little did I know that this would be the most important interview of my life.

Of course, if I had known how this interview would change my life I would have been hysterical.

So, in this case, my ignorance was my greatest ally. That same morning began an incredible journey for me. That same morning he started an incredible journey for me.

I will always feel tremendously grateful to that recruiter who, although he realized from the first moment that I had no idea what I was facing, could potentially become a good stewardess.

He hired me and changed my life forever.

You have right here the questions that your recruiter will ask you.

You can read and reread them until the answers flow by themselves.
Ya sabes los términos que necesitas utilizar e incluir en tus respuestas para impresionar al entrevistador.

The only thing you need now is to believe in yourself (not like me) With this recruiter’s pitch, and a big smile, you will get the job of your dreams.

Your new life will begin and you will never have to look back, only forward.
Your next interviews will be "a piece of cake".

Your next interview will not be for a Junior Deckhand position, it will be for a Lead Deckhand or Bosun position, which means more work, more responsibility, but also more money.


This recruiter’s pitch was written by Paul James Roger, Master 3000, currently working on a 77 meters superyacht.

Paul Roger started his yachting career working as a Junior Deckhand 10 years ago, rising through the ranks until finally achieving his Master 3000 certificate.

He has worked on prestigious yachts, such as M/Y C2 (78 meters - 30 crew members) or Phoenix 2 (90 meters - 35 crew members), among others.

Ten years ago, Paul was living a quiet and comfortable life in his hometown, Manchester.

He worked for a major retail chain as a Sales Manager.
Good job and good salary, but he could not help feeling that he was too young to have that kind of life, for the rest of his life.

Paul had always been attracted by the sea, however, he had no idea about the existence of the yachting industry.

Paul did not go to University or had major qualifications. All the skills, training and experience with he had at the time, was the result of having started working since a very young age.

His greatest fear was to give up his comfortable life to start looking for a job that would make him happy, and of course, allow him to continue enjoying a good lifestyle.

Paul has always had great expectations about the kind of life he wants to live.

He spent months investigating how he could make this change of life a reality, and one day, thanks to someone he knows, he discovered the superyacht industry.

He convinced himself that all his fears only existed in his head, and began to learn about how to get work in this industry.


Ten years later, Paul:

He has travelled all over the world

He has worked on some of the most prestigious yachts in the world

He has met colleagues of very different nationalities and cultures

He has earned enough money to live comfortably

He met his wife aboard a yacht

And, above all, he has hired hundreds of crew members, which makes him the best person to provide you with this wonderful tool for your job search onboard yachts.

You have a great advantage with which he did not count, and that would have facilitated things greatly:
