Proficient Superyacht Stewardess

Book NowThe Superyacht Stewardess role is perfectly suited to those whom have a passion for or experience in the hospitality field. The Proficient Superyacht Stewardess course forms an integral part of the Superyacht Stewardess Career course which provides the rest of the minimum requirements and much needed skills in order to gain employment.

Stewardess on a SuperyachtThe following topics are covered extensively in the Proficient Superyacht Stewardess course:

  • Interior introduction – Job role, interview process, CV, yachting do’s and don’ts, crew contracts, yachting etiquette, checklists, laundry, flower arranging, stowings & crossings safety etc.
  • Food service specific to Superyacht’s and different nationalities – Working with menu’s, breakfast, snacks, lunch, dinner, dessert, food intolerance / allergies, beverage service etc.
  • Wine & Cocktail – Intro to world of wine, tastings, pairings, cocktail blending and service etc.
  • Barista training – Tea and coffee equipment including processes, artisan skills etc.


The STCW 95 Basic Course (Manila 2010 Compliant) is always going to be the logical starting point. This is much the same for the exterior crew, but from there, the next step would be a Specialist Stewardess Training Course.  Superyacht crew roles have become more professional and more demanding as a result. The internationally recognised and accredited course has been designed to meet international standards and provide new crew with the confidence and competence to complete their jobs at the highest level possible. You will be in direct contact with guests and owners and it is you who could be the difference between an average or amazing experience which is directly linked to the crew tip amount. Stewardesses therefore need to realize their responsibility and the important role they play and ensure that their training & skills are up to scratch and in line with the industry standard.
