Yacht crew salary guide

A Yacht Chef is a position integral to ensuring that guests have an amazing yachting experience by creating unique and unforgettable meal experiences. 

Gastronomy and the art of fine dining has become as integral a part of the superyacht experience as the water itself. Superyachts offer the ultimate luxury escape, and that must be reflected in the exquisite food served to guests throughout their time onboard. A Yacht Chef is the mastermind behind creating unique and unforgettable meals. 

A yacht Chef is predominantly in charge of guest and crew meals and managing all aspects of running the galley. Superyacht guests are accustomed to eating at the best restaurants and unsurprisingly because of this, expectations can be very high. Superyacht Chefs are therefore expected to provide a wide range of cuisine, adapt to different dietary requirements, deliver high-quality food prepared upon request and keep the crew well fed.

The galley will run with different chefs depending on the size of the yacht:

• Head Chef — The Head of the galley and as such the chef responsible for all the food that is served. On some yachts this is a Sole Chef role, whilst on others the role will involve managing other Chefs.

• Sous Chef — This role works closely with the Head Chef, assisting them and potentially covering for them in their absence. Every yacht is different, so on some yachts the Sous Chef is also in charge of preparing crew food, while other yachts may have both a Sous Chef and a Crew Chef.

• Crew Chef — This role is primarily focused on cooking for the crew of the yacht. A Crew Chef is a role usually found on larger superyachts where the number of crew is greater, so a separate Chef will be employed to make sure the crew’s needs are met.

• Galley Hand — A Galley Hand is normally found on yachts over 100m in length. Depending on the type, size and itinerary of the yacht, the duties of this role can include meal prep, galley cleaning and assisting with crew food.

• Cook/Stew — This position is more common on smaller yachts and is often split between cooking and Stew duties, or assisting with Stew duties, depending on the size of the yacht. Some vessels hire a Cook/Stew in the winter to cook for the crew and help with interior duties.

What does a yacht Chef do? | Yacht Chef Job Description

The main priority for a yacht Chef is to make sure that everyone on board has an unforgettable meal. A yacht Chef has access to the best quality ingredients available, so it is up to them to use their creativity to produce the most awe-inspiring dining experience. 

A Chef onboard some of the most advanced yachts in the world has the opportunity of experimenting with some of the finest quality ingredients in the world, and often not easily acquirable on land jobs. They may be asked to spontaneously pull out ‘all the stops’ and let their imagination run wild. Or, they might be requested to provide innovative and exciting meals for guests with strict dietary restrictions. 

As a yacht Chef, adaptability is key. Some guests may want simple home cooking; if they ask for a burger, it's up to the Chef to make it the best, tastiest burger that they have ever eaten! If the guests want spaghetti carbonara, they need to make it taste like an Italian grandmother’s spaghetti carbonara! 

While Chefs still have a certain budget to stick to, one difference between working on a yacht and in a restaurant is that they don’t have to worry about trying to make a profit. All they need to do is keep the owners, guests and crew happy. 

As well as creating stand-out meals, Chefs are in charge of budget management,  provisioning, and ensuring that the galley adheres to strict standards of hygiene and cleanliness. It is their responsibility that everything runs smoothly in the galley. A Chef works closely and liaises often with the Chief Stew , to ensure that guests receive a seamless streamlined service from the galley to the table.

The responsibilities of a yacht Chef include:

Meal preparation for both guests and crew

Daily menu planning 

Liaising with the Chief Stew or Head of Service to deliver seamless service

Food provisioning and inventory checks

Organisation of the galley and maintaining cleanliness and hygiene 

Supervision of a team of Chefs (depending on the size of the yacht)

Budgeting and accounting

Soft and hard skills required to be a yacht Chef

Yacht Chefs should show real passion and enthusiasm for what they do: many successful yacht Chefs do stages and additional training during their time off. The ideal candidate demonstrates a diverse repertoire, flexible and adaptable qualities, and the ability to work well under pressure.

The skills of a good yacht Chef include:

A genuine passion for cooking

Diverse knowledge of produce and the ability to provision all over the world

Menu planning knowledge

Ability to skilfully multitask

Ability to handle criticism 


Presentation skills

Excellent communication skills and a positive attitude

Organization and time management skills

Cleanliness and hygiene

Flexibility and adaptability

Ability to work under pressure

Mandatory certificates needed to work on board a yacht 

All crew members regardless of position and seniority need to have a valid STCW Basic Safety Training certificate, along with a recognised Seafarers medical certificate, the most popular being the ENG1 which is issued by an MCA (Maritime and Coastguard Agency) professional medic. 

Without these two certificates, it is not possible for crew to work on board a yacht and a Recruiter will not be able to assist you in finding work onboard a yacht.  For more information about mandatory certificates please visit our Mandatory Certificates Guide .

Lucas Urruty Officer of the Watch (OOW) "I started yachting 7 years ago, from not knowing the industry at all to getting my first OOW position last year. I remember in the first stages of my training I had nobody to guide me on how or in what order or priority to do my modules. I followed the yacht route, and up until now I have always gone back to Yotspot in my career to see what requirements, sea time and courses I need and in what order as a reference. I have booked at least 4 of my modules through Yotspot and even got my current job thanks to the site. It has changed the game in our industry regarding crew, training and so much more, highly recommend! "
Liubov Chunikhovska Ex Chief Stewardess (MY Luna, 100m) "If you're looking for a job or recruiting crew I personally think that Yotspot is the best service in the industry. It basically has everything you need in one place. Yotspot has been crucial to work with professionals and provides a high-level of support. Thank you Yotspot Team and wishing you inspiration to keep going with new ideas along with success!"
Jo Stepien Stewardess/ Masseuse (MY New Secret, 75m) "I have been using Yotspot to find new interesting opportunities since the beginning of my yachting career. I have chosen to look on this platform because it offers full spectrum of options that you want to include in your search such as temporary or rotational position. I haven't seen it on any other yacht job search site and I always found it super useful to specify your search like that and look for the best option for me. Yotspot is a time saver. I have found my current job on it and I am very grateful for that. I will definitely recommend it to any yachtie to create a profile and search for his or her dream job on Yotspot as it's definitely somewhere there!"

Sorry, But This 'Below Deck Mediterranean' Season 9 Star Needs to Get the Boot

The Big Picture

  • Chef Jono on Below Deck Mediterranean is struggling with high guest expectations and food quality.
  • Celebrity charter with tennis legend Gigi Fernandez tests Chef Jono, serving chicken in Greece.
  • Captain Sandy may have to make a tough decision about Chef Jono's future aboard the Mustique.

It's only the season's second charter, and certain crew members aboard motor yacht Mustique are already on thin ice. But do they even realize it? Season 9 of Below Deck Mediterranean is setting sail in the stunning locale of Greece. With five-star views, the charter guests expect five-star service, whether it's in terms of excursions or cuisine. These extravagant getaways have high expectations, especially at such a high cost! But there is someone on the ship and reality series who's not quite living up to expectations. And it's the one-man galley machine, Chef Jono Shillingford . Easily one of the coolest personalities to grace the screens, he's not quite nailing his job . Is it time to give him the sack or will Captain Sandy Yawn let another disappointed charter guest cause her to make a change?

Now in its triumphant ninth season, Below Deck Mediterranean is back to showcase the highs and lows of the yachtie lifestyle. Led by long-time star Captain Sandy Yawn, this season has welcomed back the jovial spirit and always incredible Aesha Scott . Following her time working in the Med, Aesha is back with Captain Sandy, this time as the Chief Stew. With an almost entirely new crew, Captain Sandy and the staff of Mustique have endured some self-inflicted blunders . And it's only two charters in!

Below Deck Mediterranean

In a luxury charter yacht traveling across the Mediterranean, crew members face both the challenges of managing upscale guest expectations and the complexities of their own interrelationships. Each episode highlights the high-octane world of yachting where exceptional service standards meet personal drama and adventure.

Chef Jono Shillingford Shows That Great People Don't Always Make Great Yacht Chefs

When it comes to multi-season arcs for chefs on Below Deck , it's not as frequent as one might think. There have been long-tenured individuals like Chef Ben Robinson and Chef Rachel Hargrove , but for the most part, many chefs in the Below Deck Cinematic Universe spend a season on board and move onto their next project. This season, Below Deck Mediterranean has a fresh face on its crew. Chef Johnathan "Jono" Shillingford is a wonderful and charismatic character. He's shared that he has a boyfriend, making him the first queer chef in the franchise . When he first met his superior, he informed her that he was a culinary architect. By telling Captain Sandy that his training is in architecture, he builds his food. Not like children playing with theirs, he constructs breathtaking images through culinary arts. On paper, it's an amazing and enticing skill everyone can't wait to see. But it's not necessarily practical on board a megayacht of this caliber. Yet his confidence in the kitchen has proven that this art will be useful. Eventually. When the time is right. But with his track record thus far, he might not have the opportunity to showcase his skills.

'Below Deck Mediterranean's First Charter Had an Obvious MVP

The charter guests started to whine when they didn’t get their wine!

During the first charter of the season, Chef Jono didn't receive all the necessary provisions he requested. He didn't get the quality of seafood required for the dishes he had planned. He managed to make the meals work. But the first set of charter guests were mostly concerned about their late-night snacks. Perhaps the provision kerfuffle made him to forget the requests from the 20-something Brits because he did not prepare any late-night snacks, causing stew Elena Dubaich to wake him up for assistance. Well, as viewers know, that did not go well, and he refused. Of course, Captain Sandy stated that you never wake up the chef. Meanwhile, the likes of Captain Lee Rosbach and Chief Stew Aesha Scott have stated that they agreed with Elie's decision. Following the divided opinions, Captain Sandy, Chef Jono, and Aesha all agreed that next time, he would prepare paninis for the late night stew to offer as a late night munchy. The only thing is, when will they ever have guests like the Brits who clearly state late night snacks on their preference sheet? Certainly not the next set of guests!

For the second charter of the season, a celebrity and her friends boarded Mustique. Grand Slam champion and tennis legend Gigi Fernandez and her friends were set to test the crew. This is not the first time Gigi and her friends have appeared on a Bravo yacht series. She first appeared during Season 10 of Below Deck when Captain Sandy temporarily replaced Captain Lee when he was experiencing nerve problems. As Captain Sandy blatantly stated, she met her as a guest and they then became friends. Captain Sandy loves her famous friends! Knowing her friend's expectations were going to be high, she wanted her experience to be perfect. So much so that she participated in the service experience with the stews. Well, everything was going swimmingly, except for that one guest who drifted a bit too far on the paddle board. So, when the dinner service arrived, the stews did their part, but Chef Jono? Not so much.

He served them chicken...in Greece. Color the guests unimpressed! Gigi and her friends expected fine dining, but they got chicken. Cut to breakfast. When Gigi got her inedible cold eggs, she ran to her friend to discuss her displeasure. And knowing Captain Sandy will always throw her crew under the bus over her famous friends, she's likely to let Captain Jono have it. When Gigi and her friends compared and name-dropped that their meal was not like Chef Rachel's, viewers knew trouble was brewing.

Being a Yacht Chef Is Not Always Easy

Maybe Chef Jono needs to be given the benefit of the doubt. Each new job is a learning curve. But with high expectations comes qualified individuals who can adjust on a whim and meet the needs of the guests paying for their services. But Chef Jono has had two charters against him already. Panini-gate is completely on him. Chicken is completely on him. The eggs? Well, maybe he's not entirely at fault. He was told that the guests wanted an 8:30am breakfast. He prepared for such. But they didn't arrive until an hour later. So he served them what he already prepared. But Chef Jono, who can eat cold eggs? This was a situation where a backup plan was necessary . Perhaps when the stews alerted him that the guests were seated for breakfast, he could cook up the eggs. They're not the hardest dish to prepare. There was an easy solution to salvage the situation. While the first group of charter guests did praise Chef Jono for his food, this group is more likely to hinder the tip at the end because of their displeasure with the food.

'Below Deck's Season 11 MVP Is a Franchise-Best Yachtie

'Mummy' is making waves as one of the best Chief Stews on Bravo's hit reality show

Below Deck has had some incredible chefs throughout the various series. And others, well, they were a disaster. Nothing will ever beat the homophobic pathological liar Mila Kolomeitseva of Below Deck Med Season 4. Chef Kiko Lorran on Below Deck Med Season 5 and Chef Anthony Iracane of Below Deck Season 11 were both sweet and amazing people, but their culinary skills did not match the high-speed world of yachting. So they were both let go. Chef Jono seems like one of the most spectacular humans to hang out with and have a drink with, but his display thus far on Below Deck Med is causing viewers to question his ability in this specific industry. Knowing that Captain Sandy was willing to rightly switch to a new provisioner for the rest of the charter season, she might be trigger-happy to let Chef Jono go in favor of someone who could live up to her standard. And you can't necessarily blame her should she go in that direction. But she does owe it to him to alert him about his struggles and give him the opportunity to fix it. If he fails again, at least everyone is on the same page!

Chef Jono is easily someone you want to cheer on, even if you don't always agree with his stance on certain situations. But when thousands and thousands of dollars are being spent on a once-in-a-lifetime experience, charter guests have the right to complain if their food is not up to snuff. No captain ever wants to fire their staff, but viewers are quite familiar that Captain Sandy is more than willing to make a change if it means the charter season will be improved. Good luck Chef Jono! We're hoping you can change courses quickly!

Below Deck Med airs new episodes every Monday at 9:00 pm. All episodes are available to stream the next day on Peacock.
