It’s difficult for a new crew or yacht owner to know what salary is expected. The mega yacht industry is paying large salaries to crews with little to no experience but the sailing industry is different and doesn’t command such high salaries.
To help with this we have created a Salary Matrix for Sailing Yachts sized 60 - 100ft based on the crew’s experience in years and the size of yacht.
