    Is it possible to work on Charter Yachts during their primary season only? For example: I live in NY but want to work on a Charter Yacht in the Caribbean during the winter. Then go back to my job in NY during the summer. Any information would help!

    For the yacht side of things that's quite possible. However, most jobs in NY wouldn't be too thrilled about it unless your job there is seasonal. Two seasonal jobs with opposite seasons can work well together.

    I work for my family In NY so splitting time is no problem. Does splitting time in the Yachting community happen frequently?

    There are a lot of crew members who only work half the year, do the Caribbean season or the Mediterranean season but not both.

    Well, that doesn't mean it's an easy industry to get into. There's still that part to deal with.
