RIMTA offering superyacht crew training

The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association will host a three-day training program June 5-7 to give participants the skills and industry knowledge needed to start a career as crew on a luxury yacht.

RIMTA has partnered with Ship to Shore Crew Placement Agency to run the program. Three full days of instruction will be offered in Newport, in both classroom and onboard settings.

This new program is free to Rhode Islanders over age 18. No boating experience is required.

Crews working on a luxury superyacht typically live onboard and travel with the yachts as they follow the sun — from New England to the Caribbean, the Mediterranean, and even the Pacific.

A career as a yacht crew can be a fit for someone who wants to work on the water and travel, for individuals with strong mechanical skills, and for those who have experience in hospitality.

During the program, participants will get an opportunity to meet captains and crews who will be looking for help in preparing their boats for the upcoming charter season in New England.

The deadline to submit an application to this free program is Thursday.
