About the Cook

The cook position onboard a yacht is ideal for someone that loves to be in the galley and has a great “can-do” attitude. The successful candidate will be able to multi-task effectively, provision independently, work long hours as needed and provide fantastic meals in a galley that often is limited in space and storage. The cook must also be willing to assist other departments when called upon, as this role is usually found on smaller vessels where cross-department teamwork is essential to the successful operation of the yacht. This position requires the ability to cook well, but does not necessitate significant superyacht experience as an entry level position. Candidates may have little to no yacht experience.
