West Nautical are overseeing a New Build, 35m MY (Private) and require a Captain to start in September 2022, however, the start date is flexible considering the season is in full swing.

The vessel will be world cruising upon delivery and the first season with the owners will begin in the Eastern Mediterranean before moving west then onto Northern Europe (cruising will depend on weather conditions), after departing Northern Europe there will be cruising in North and South America before transiting through the Panama Canal, West Coast of the USA and onto the Pacific. Anticipated duration for circ. navigation is 2 years.

The owners will use the vessels for three months at a time with a 2-4 week break in between which will give the crew a chance at some down time to enjoy the location and take some short holidays.
