The Döhle Yachts Group is a market leader in providing compliance, technical, administrative and crew-related services to the superyacht industry. Operating from the Isle of Man, the UK and Guernsey, with representative offices in Malta and Germany, are proud to be a trusted and discreet partner to many of the most widely admired yachts in the world.

Due to our expanding client base, an opportunity has arisen for a Senior Technical Yacht Manager to join our Southampton office.

The ideal candidate will be a proactive and goal-driven self-starter who is able to work with minimal supervision and have at least 8 years experience as a Chief or Second Engineer.

Experience in a management or supervisory role, including shipyard or docking periods, and an understanding of financial budget control, quality control and scheduling are essential.

The preferred candidate will have spent time ashore, ideally working in a similar role, and be a robust, well-rounded and experienced character.

Proficiency in Microsoft Office and the ability to write concise, clear reports for presentation or review by professionals is also required.

The role holder will be responsible for the technical management and support for operational yachts, including refits and new builds. You will be based in our Southampton (Fareham) office and will therefore live within commuting distance or be willing to relocate.

International travel is a key function in this role and the availability and willingness to travel, often at short notice, is a requirement. Such travel can be for up to a week at a time and may occasionally include weekends.

The company offers scope for professional development, a competitive salary and an excellent benefits package on the successful completion of a probationary period.

Language Requirements:

Good knowledge of the English language is required.
