How Much Money do Yacht Crew Earn?

There are many fantastic reasons to work on a luxury yacht - the travel, the exciting lifestyle, amazing friends, rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous and of course...a great salary.

A disciplined crew member can save a lot of money in a short period of time. A smart crew member can create a path in life only dreams are made of.
