About Candidate

I’m seeking a deckhand job on a private/charter yacht. I’m highly motivated with a great work ethic. I am seeking any opportunity that allows me to learn and gain experience in order to succeed in my yachting career. I am a quick learner and I respond well to constructive criticism. I can work well with a team and remain calm in stressful situations. I have years of experience on boats and feel comfortable being on the water. As a former lifeguard, I have extensive experience in CPR, First Aid and rescue techniques that will be an asset on any vessel.
