Megayacht owners scramble to fill yacht crew positions under labor shortage of skilled workers.

The luxury yacht market continues to show strong growth despite increasing fuel prices and other negative economic indicators

The luxury yachting market is growing by leaps and bounds. But the number of skilled workers is not keeping pace. This ever-expanding market brings with it a serious global labor shortage. Nobody sees this untapped job opportunity better than Fraser Yachts Worldwide, the global leader in the business of luxury yachting.

Fraser Yachts Worldwide offers private yacht owners access to the largest pre-qualified database of yacht crew applicants in the industry. Unfortunately, there aren't enough qualified people in the field to keep up with the expanding demand.

Yacht crew positions abound. There are currently 17.5 miles of luxury yachts under construction, which will require about 6,993 new crew members. The labor shortage of skilled workers means that there is high demand for people who are looking for an exciting new career.

"The luxury yacht market continues to show strong growth despite increasing fuel prices and other negative economic indicators," says Jill Bobrow, Editor In Chief of Showboats International. "The numbers represent sustainable growth and, hopefully, signal an underlying confidence among affluent consumers that the global economy will continue to expand."

Are you an adventurous soul? Yacht crew positions provide you the career opportunity of a lifetime. The opportunity is especially enticing for people already accustomed to the service industry. If you've worked in a bar or restaurant, making the transition to a sea-based service job is not all that difficult.

But, you must be aware of the challenges. One of the few caveats of yacht crew positions is that workers can be away from home for weeks at a time. However, if traveling around the globe to glamorous and exotic new destinations is something that sounds appealing to you, maybe it's time to exploit this career opportunity and find a well-paying position that best fits your personality and skill sets.
