You will sail on a beautiful and majestic steel lady named Naviga. She is a 31m long ketch and has a 420 PS main engine.
We were supposed to leave the Caribbean in 2019 but we faced technical issues. Maintenance and improvements works are on-going and almost finished. 2020 is the time to go home in order to get further cares!
We are a young family (french and german). Our 2 kids are 5 and 1 year old. And Stefan will be your German captain. We do not eat meat but you are free to carry your own meat with you. Underway we usually provide a warm(vegan) meal once a day. And we hope we can catch a lot of tuna!
Departure from Curacao at the very end of March, to St-Martin/Guadeloupe (via St-Lucia, Dominica OR Dom Rep), to the Acores (Horta), to Europe.
We will adapt to wind and sea conditions at first place!!!
You will experience overnight passages, watch-keeping, crossing busy shipping lanes, boat handling, sail trim, navigation, VHF, AIS, Radar, provisioning, boat systems, passage planning, etc.
Weather forecasting by Iridium satellite and routing support.
You will experience the life aboard on an authentic ocean-going superyacht. Enjoy your own berth in a shared but very confortable cabin. And a small crew of 6 people max (without counting the kids).
You have sailing experience. You feel comfortable with foreign languages, teamwork and rules. If there is something to do, we expect from each person to invest himself. If the captain gives a command, you are able doing it without many discussion but you also know your limits and are able to say if you are not able to make a specific task. You do not take risks on your own.
We are looking for someone easy-going, friendly and experienced to help out and make the crossing enjoyable and fun for all of us.
It is a unique opportunity sailing on a superyacht for a bargain. We ask for a daily contribution (must be seen as a support to maintain the ship in good shape) plus boat kitty (fuel, marina fees, drinks on board, provisions) shared equaly.
Interested? Please, we would like to learn more about you! So, send us your application !
A priority will be given to people who can join us in Curacao.
