Wanna be a yachtie in Mallorca?

The Autumn is also quite a good time to be looking; at the end of the summer season lots of crew move around so new jobs will pop up then before many head over the pond to hit the Caribbean season.

Crew focus in Mallorca

What’s so great about working on superyachts?

“Working on a yacht provides a pretty unique work environment. Surrounded by luxury, the view from your window is probably better than from an office.”
