We are looking for a (sole) Chef for one of our 3 sailing yachts - KAIROS, CHRONOS & RHEA.

Sailing-Classics runs 7-day cabin charter cruises in the Mediterranean (April - October) and Caribbean (October - April) with 16 - 26 guests. Our sailing holidays combine authentic sailing with great comfort, high-quality service (4 meals a day, good cuisine), water sports and shore excursions.

Our (sole) chefs are responsible for:

  • provisioning of all food items to a given budget
  • preparing all meals (breakfast buffet, 2 courses lunch, 3 courses dinner, fresh cakes/pastries) for up to 26 guests plus 10 crew
  • keeping the galley in a clean and functional condition
  • gathering continous feedback from the guests to meet their expectations towards the meals

Teamwork is an absolute must as well as collaborating with other departments and helping wherever needed.

Previous work experience in a similar job is essential as well as being able to cook during sailing. Changing day in the Mediterranean is each Saturday and there are only a few hours when there are not guests on board. Chefs usually go shopping during this time.

You need to be extremly guest-oriented and work close with the chief stew, captain and host regarding meal times and the daily schedule.

As we are sailing continuously with guests, life on board requires a certain lifestyle. Workdays are intense and long. Board and crew language is English, guests are mainly German speaking.

We do offer temporary employment contracts (in the Neatherlands) as well as freelancing contracts. We prefer rotations of about 8 - 10 weeks.

Posititon is available immediately or on arrangement.

If you are interested, please send your CV to our crewing department.

We are looking forward to hearing from you!
