I pray that this topic hasn't been covered hundreds of times before, so apologies if so.
I'm new out of university and have realised I no longer want to pursue a career in what I was studying. So, I'm in need of information from you kind people who can steer me in the right direction for employment as a Crew/Deckhand on Motor / Superyachts.
I know I would have to complete the STCW-95, Powerboat Level 2 as a real minimum, but I'm having training providers telling me I would need to complete a Yachtmasters Offshore course in order to get on a Superyacht.... Is this correct?... I just feel that's quite a step for a complete novice.
Also, I feel I would prefer Motor courses rather than sails... Am I deluded?...lol
