Confessions of a yacht deckhand
Working on a yacht can be a dream or a nightmare based on who you’re working for. Here are some stories that will either make you green with envy or red with rage.
A start-up website is advertising for what could be one of the best jobs in the world, with the successful applicant being paid to travel around the world and test fancy yachts.
The dream job was listed by HushHush, a recently-launched luxury shopping website. The marketplace — known as the “Amazon for millionaires” — is recruiting someone to review yachts before they are listed on the site.
The advertisement for the cushy role, which pays $1,865 a week, requires the reviewer to live, eat, and sleep on the yacht for a week, checking out its “functions, quality, and suitability for the site”, including checking out every plug socket, door, bed, shower, and tap.
The successful applicant has the ability to review up to 50 yachts per year, which would pay around $93,000.
It’s not the first time the company has advertised for a luxurious role as a “product tester”.
