Schooner J&E Riggin


Sailing Pay: $800/week + tips avg. $100/ day under sail (Live Aboard from April/May-October)
We are a small, family-owned, ecotour company taking paying guests to sail the coast of Maine on our historic schooner. We are looking for a chef who is creative and excited to work with the best ingredients from land and sea in Maine, some of which we grow and make ourselves in our own back yard. The galley environment is challenging as we try to minimize waste in an effort to be a green cruise. You will be working in a galley on a woodstove with a Sous Chef.
It ‘s mandatory that you pass a drug test. We are alcohol-free when passengers are on board, or you could potentially be handling the boat. It ‘s fun if you are able to join us in singing or making music.
More important, however, is that you are a person who is a team player, who can have intelligent interesting conversations with our passengers, be polite under stressful situations, and extend warmth and welcome to our passengers.
We give high preference to folks who can work our entire season, from the end of March to the end of October. While our sailing season is only from May to the beginning of October, there is much work that happens behind the scenes to get the boat prepared to sail and wrapped up for the long hard winter.
Our pay is competitive. As bosses we are fair and honest teachers. We have a high level of expectation and know that the crew we hire has the capability to meet these standards. When you leave our employ after having worked an entire season or more, whether this is something you plan as a career or not, you will be proud of what you learned and of the grit and strength you ‘ve attained.
