After twenty five years in the yachting and commercial industry one fact is abundantly clear- for a yacht or commercial vessel to be successful, crew members and their associated attitude and work ethic is the primary key as to the success of the overall operation. Whether the goal is to transport goods or merchandise to overseas ports or transport the latest celebrity to the next exotic port, crew members have without doubt the largest impact on the outcome. Which leads to the question: What does it take to be a good crew member on a yacht or commercial vessel?
The marine industry offers to those interested, a wide variety of choices and locations in which to apply one self, no matter what your goals may be. The above mentioned tenets are a good guideline to assist perspective crew members in what is to be expected of them to be considered for a position and to become a- “good crew member”.
