Benefits to owners and guests: Could you think of a nicer treat when you arrive at your yacht than to have a crew member available to help with those nagging aches and pains? Someone you trust and know personally. Someone available 24/7 to offer your guests the pampering of spa services in the privacy of your yacht, anywhere in the world? It’s a small price to pay to make life that much grander. Of all the reasons to own a yacht, aren’t convenience and pampering two of the most important? We all have aches, pains and tension, how about starting your next trip with a massage?
Benefits for Captains: Who doesn’t like a happy, relaxed & stress free owner? Set your yacht apart from the rest of the fleet. If you are in the charter business, offering a massage & spa services could be exactly what it takes to set the yacht apart from the plethora of offerings out there. Many of our guests aren’t “boat people”, they could care less about the size of your engines as long as the boat keeps going and gets them safely from point A to B and beyond. Now offer the ladies a massage and a detoxifying or firming body wrap and you just catapulted your yacht into a whole new class of luxury. Lets face it, most yachts have great chefs. Enough booze to sink a ship and crew that keeps things sparkly clean. Having a “wellness officer” on-board can assist the guests and crew in staying healthy, strong, limber and ready to do their best. Those of us in the charter industry know that our gratuities come down to the very small things as well. It’s all about the experience, and we all know that we can never do enough to enhance that memorable experience.
Benefits for stews and crews: Set yourself apart. Your next job could depend on it and yacht massage training can help. What a better way to stand out from the crowd than to be a certified yacht massage stewardess, mate or deckhand. A 5 minute shoulder massage could very well land you that next gig. Your ability to help keep the owners, guests, captain and crew happy and healthy will add greatly to your value and job security on the vessel. Earn extra cash and see crew tips skyrocket.
Learning massage gives you a very valuable and lucrative skill to use during your next “between jobs” phase as well. Down island with nothing to do and your bank account dwindling? Not a problem. Massage and bodywork is a set of skills to last a lifetime and potentially even one you can use for your “end game” when you inevitably seek a land job for whatever reason.
