Hi everyone, I'm looking towards a career in superyachts and I was hoping you could help me. Here's a little bit about myself... All my life I've been exposed to the sea. So much so, that I'd like to opt for a career in it to my mother's disapproval. (I don't feel a job behind an office 9-5 is for me and can't see myself doing it.) My ultimate goal is to captain a superyacht. Before you say it, I have done my research and can easily stay at sea for months on end. Those who work on yachts often work unpredictable hours, are far away from home and consequentially are unable to maintain personal relationships. I'm not one to care for relationships so none of that puts me off a career commanding a yacht. At around 7 years of age, I was introduced to scuba diving and have continued this a decade later to present day. I'm at a rescue diver grade with PADI and every year for the past 6 years, I have stayed with my dad abroad in Turkey and accompanied him on the boats helping out with whatever I could so my sea time is already quite high. Sorry for that, I thought it would be worthwhile to mention that. Anyway, I know nobody sane would let me waltz right onto the bridge of a multi million dollar vessel and sail the seven seas. So that's why I'm here today. I'm looking for some guidance on paths to take to working on a superyacht. Fortunately there's a nautical college close to me and I meet the requirements to enroll in a nautical science course which covers the following: Bridge Watchkeeping, Passage Planning, Seamanship, Shipboard Operations, Naval Architecture, Management, Professional Development, Personal Development, and Managing Projects. (From the college's website.) My question is where to go after this? Thanks in advance and I apologize for the lengthy thread especially as its my first post.
