As a Superyacht Stew, your primary role is to maintain the yacht’s interior, as well as service and Laundry. A Superyacht will must a bespoke provide 5* experience to the guests or owners.  You are part of a larger team of Officers, Engineers, Chefs, and Deckhands overseen by the Captain.

You will live onboard the yacht as it travels around the world. Yachts only go to beautiful places. The pay is not bad either! If you’re eager to learn more about the role of a Stewardess, then  Becoming a Stewardess.
