A Deckhand is responsible for the exterior of the yacht in terms of the cleaning, maintenance and often water sports. Deckhand jobs can vary between boats, the smaller boats tend to have a variety of duties in the role including service of meals and drinks, some housekeeping, keeping a lookout, steering as well as maintaining the exterior and reporting to the chief officer.
When working on larger yachts Deckhands will have less involvement in service and more cleaning duties outside and more involvement managing the water sports activities of the yacht, it’s an excellent opportunity. A candidate with less service and housekeeping experience often find the role of Deckhand easier to secure when entering the industry for the first time.
