A fit, keen, experienced, and hard-working second engineer is required for a 60-meter new-build vessel based in North America with an upcoming global cruising itinerary. The vessel is state-of-the-art propulsion systems, full ISM, and operates as a commercial vessel. The ideal candidate should hold a minimum of Y4 but preferrably Y3 or a higher Certificate of Comptentancy and should possess a good amount of AV/IT skill. The right engineer should have excellent hands-on mechanical skills and aptitude, be able to follow instructions with ease, and be willing and more than able to take on tasks autonomously and timeously. Candidates must be willing to learn and be teachable, as well as give of themselves at all times in any situation, including on deck, with guests and owners, and by supporting the crew with a clear positive attitude.

The role is to start in mid-February 2024 with an initial 5 months onboard to get you familiar with the vessel and show your commitment to the program. The role will then become rotational on a time-for-time basis. Rotation has been approved by the owners for a committed engineer. The vessel may consider an earlier start but that is negotiable.

There is no COVID-19 requirement. A B1/B2 visa is a strict requirement. Candidates will be given the opportunity to secure a visa with the vessel's support if they are chosen as the final candidate.
