For someone that wants to start in the superyacht industry. This course is jam-packed with information, so many great tips and tricks to start in the yachting journey. I now have the confidence to go out and find my first job on a yacht. Thank you so much for all your hard work and time that you have put into the course dedicated to green crew. 

"I can honestly say it has helped me learn and understand the yachting world in so many ways. 


Would 100% recommend this to anyone wanting to get into the industry. From the checklists to the info you don't know, Jess has so much fantastic content and really goes out of her way to help. 
It’s such a relief to instantly find all the advice you need all in one place - can’t emphasise enough how helpful her stuff is! 

"I got the dream job the day after completing my STCW course because I had been following Jess's guide.


I had done my research but this course really opened my eyes to things that hadn't even crossed my mind. Such great advice around dock walking and day work, interview guidance, what to do and what not to do onboard and even guidance on laundry/housekeeping and general stew advice- which is so useful for green crew! Thanks Jess for taking the time to make this course and sharing all your advice. This course has been so helpful and I really feel like i'm ready to start my yachting adventure with the help of the amazing checklists!

"I loved everything about this course! Jess has really gone above and beyond with all the content you receive. 

kind words

real results from students

I help aspiring yacht crew anchor themselves in the right position so that they can break into the yachting industry faster and start their new career with confidence.

I have over 5 years of experience in the yachting industry, I’ve started from the bottom and worked my way up, I’ve had real conversations with chief stews and captains with over 20 years experience, who both agree the information I share is something that is missing from the industry. I’ve completed several G.U.E.S.T training courses and secured roles on some of the world’s most prestigious superyachts. I’ve been trained by yachting professionals and now I’m sharing all that I know with you.

Hey, I'm Jess - the face behind The Seaworthy Stew. And I believe in saying yes to more adventures!

Meet your teacher

 I’ve been in your shoes before… wondering if I should try my luck in yachting, looking up all those dreamy destinations yacht crew seem to be at everyday! #yachtlife

Get paid (good money!) to travel the world whilst working on superyachts

Secure a job with no experience and work your way up to chief stew

Set yourself up financially with the expense free lifestyle that yachting offers 

Have a whole new group of friends based all around the world 

I said yes to the adventure, took a risk and now I'm proof you can....

Before you know it you'll be travelling by boat to places you didn't even know existed, serving the rich and famous.

No more wasting time now we have a clear get onboard strategy in place. When we don’t have a strategy, we are not going anywhere fast. The 5 steps for success helps you filter exactly what you need to focus on. Imagine having more clarity, knowing what you need to do to actually break into the yachting industry minus the overwhelm.

Imagine if you could confidently  break into the industry?

And now it's your turn!

So, who the course is for?

Aspiring yacht crew- that's you!  For the soon to be STEWS, DECKHANDS & CHEFS!

Cheeky risk taker (I mean aren't we all?!) You risk heartbreak for love and risk failing to take big steps and find success.

You're prepared to do the ground work hint hint... Dock Walking is key to success.

For those ready to make a plan and turn their yachting dream into a reality:

Stews, deckhands & chefs 

You're not prepared to take action...
this course is not for the fence sitters

You are trying to become a yachting engineer. The pathway to doing so is different to that of a junior stew, deck or chef. 

This course is not for you if:

Not if you are purchasing only the  Yachting Kickstarter course, if you are wanting a full CV review I recommend purchasing the 'bundle buy' option which includes The Yachting CV toolkit.

Can I send my CV to you to check if I buy the Kickstarter course?


Yes absolutely! I offer email support to help you and will check in with you to see how you're going once you're in the yachting hubs and on the quest for a job. I also answer any questions you have along the way.

Do you provide support after the course?


COVID has not affected the billionaires of the world who own and charter yachts. Yachting hasn’t been as heavily affected as say the hospitality industry or cruise ship. Yachting will carry on, boats always need crew. 

Can I still get a job in yachting despite COVID?


I bet you're wondering....

your questions answered

As mentioned previously this course is not for the fence sitters, its specifically for the action takers and due to the nature of the digital product, refunds are not available. 

Can I get a refund on the course if it's not for me?


This course does not guarantee you a job, it simply gives you the best possible chance at securing a job in the competitive yachting industry.

Does the Yachting Kickstarter guarantee me a job?


Yes, depending on your skill set you can always do interior courses in order to upskill and get you up to speed on what is required for the yachting industry. 

Can I get a job with no hospitality or hotel experience?
