Eventually, I also got my Captain’s License and Master of Yachts 200T certification with a sailing endorsement. So this is an industry I know very well! and outboard-2s engines , which are available in diesel and petrol. How many Workboats do Boatshop24 UK sell? The Racing Fleet has two classes of boats. The ‘B’ class for larger boats up to 29 feet hull length, with a bowsprit between 12 to 14 feet and up to 1000 square feet of sail. The ‘C’ class is for smaller boats up to 25 feet length, with bowsprits of 12 feet or less and 650 square feet of sail. At present there are eighteen ‘B’ class and nine ‘C’ class boats registered with the FWBA. The Fal oyster, the Ostrea edulis, is not cultured or bred but grows naturally on the seabed. The oysters have a scaly rough shell which is brown, yellow or cream with concentric bluish bands on the outside. Each half of the shell has a different shape, the left is deeply concave and the right is flatter and rougher. Inside the shell is smooth and pearly with cream coloured flesh.

You don’t have to pay rent when you work & live on boats, and your food is included too, so you can really save a lot of money. But many yachties get lost in the endless party lifestyle and waste their income. What is day work? Work one day, get paid in cash. Simple. It’s a great way to earn a bit of extra cash and network with other yachties! Day work can often turn into a full-time crew position. Terry, who joined the team in 2006, takes up the story: “Once the boats were restored, they needed people to take them out on the water and attract visitors to the canals; the group was set up to facilitate that.” It’s a good idea to register yourself with as many crew agencies as possible. Exposure is key. The first job could come from anywhere. Modular pontoon systems are extremely versatile tools to solve any number of problems associated with working on or around water.

Over the years the boats have been built in various boatyards in Cornwall but particularly those around the Fal. It was a hard life on board a working narrowboat, and even the children had to pitch in. As Joan tells us: “There was only ever one salary paid to the father, but the whole family was expected to work, including the children once they were above the age of about six.” The term ‘Falmouth Working Boat’ is fairly recent and mainly applies now to the boats that race during the summer months. These versatile craft, originally given the name ‘Truro River Oyster Dredging Boats’, took their name from the occupation they were used for and the area in which it took place. Don’t keep evidence of yacht job hunting with you nor electronically when you fly into America. It doesn’t have to be illegal to get you sent home!

But chances are, if you’re dreaming of a life working on mega-yachts, the ability to travel and work is one of the main attractions. And it’s a fantastic perk! How To Work On A Yacht Yacht Job BenefitsWorking on yachts can give you an exotic life of adventure, world travel, beautiful beaches, and a glimpse of what luxury living is like… all with a pretty damn good salary. Summer season in the Med (yachtie slang for Mediterranean) begins in May as most of the boats are crossing the Atlantic in April. The Falmouth Working Boat Association (FWBA) was formed in the late winter/early spring of 1978/79 when the owners of the working boats felt that an association should be formed which would be the governing body whose main aim was ‘to preserve and encourage the unique traditions of the gaff-rigged oyster dredgers’. While looking for yacht jobs on a foreign-flagged vessel in America is not technically illegal, it’s frowned upon and not something you want to tell immigration officers.

Investing in this course is also a sign of your commitment, and will improve your chances of getting hired for your first job. Working in the yachting industry is all about being in the right place at the right time. You won’t find a yacht job from your computer at home — you need to get out there and pound the pavement.Yachting is one of the oldest industries in the world and still runs largely in a social context — the more people you meet, the better your chances. You don’t actually have to be a sailor to work on a sailing yacht (especially if you work the interior), but you have to be willing to learn. Location is everything in this business. Yachts move around the globe seasonally like migrating birds, chasing the best weather.
