The Flying Fish Superyacht Deckhand programme has been updated for 2018 with the addition of two new elements. The course we offer gives you the essential qualifications required to enter the Superyacht industry as a Deckhand.
Working on a Superyacht allows you access to a completely different lifestyle; you’ll be berthing in some of the most luxurious marinas and visiting some of the most famous destinations all around the world. The average salary for a new Deckhand, Steward or Stewardess ranges from €1,800
The best jobs are the ones that don’t feel like work and that’s certainly true of a career in the Superyacht industry.
After all, you get to travel to far-flung destinations, hang out with celebrities and the pay is fantastic.
It’s no wonder you’re considering a career in yachting, but you’re probably wondering what you need to do to get started. Hopefully, this guide will provide you with all the essential information.

We have been catching up with one of our students from one of last year’s STCW Superyacht Deck Crew Training Courses Hannah Brown to see how she has found her first year in the Superyacht industry.
Hannah told us that she had been getting on brilliantly, “I am still working in the industry and I LOVE it” says Hannah.
“I started out in Antibes last year (2016) late July early August and picked up for short term temp contract work relatively quickly.
I recently attended an RYA dinghy instructor course on Sydney Harbour run by Flying Fish, and to say I learnt something would be an understatement, I learnt a tremendous amount.
