The hostesses: the jewels of the crown of a superyacht.
In our blog, we have dedicated several articles to the occupations and responsibilities of the crew. Still, in this post, we want to mention one of the most critical roles for everything on board to work, and the owners and guests enjoy the incomparable experience of a Superyacht: the hostesses.
To get an idea of the importance of the hostesses’ work, these are the words of Gemma Hulbert, flight attendant chief of superyachts with more than seven years of experience: “We are caregivers of the guests: everything they need is done before they need it.” Nothing more and nothing less.
It is one of the most demanding and most tiring jobs of all those carried out aboard a luxury boat. The days are intense and prolonged, the moments of relaxation are scarce, and the unforeseen events are constant. But the hostesses get everything to flow normally.
What can be simple on land is not always at sea. For example, having the right ingredients so that the Chef and the kitchen team can prepare an exquisite menu or please a guest who makes a special request. In the middle of the sea, it is challenging to improvise.
A good hostess can offer quick and unexpected solutions without losing her smile. And due to the great experience that the hostesses acquire in their daily performance, few ascend to positions of greater responsibility or end up becoming recognized Chefs of the best luxury yachts. That is the case of Kathleen, whose experience can be very illustrative for those who are thinking of applying for a hostess position in the world of luxury yachts.
