The chief engineer on board a luxury superyacht manages all aspects of engine room operations including safety, maintenance, repairs, inventory along with management of the engineering team on larger vessels. The successful candidate will possess excellent trouble shooting and expert technical engineering skills as well as thorough knowledge of the wide variety of engineering systems onboard. This individual also can effectively project plan for large repairs/refits in coordination with routine maintenance. Productive contractor negotiations and detailed financial/time management of all engineering projects are crucial. On large yachts this role requires ten plus years of vast engineering experience aboard yachts and a minimum of a MCA Y1 – Y2 level license based on vessel requirements. There will be several engineers reporting to the chief engineer so leadership, management and training are also integral to this position. On smaller to mid-sized yachts this may be a solo position which requires strong multi-tasking skills, good time management and organization. This person will typically have at least five years of experience in engineering roles and a MCA Y2 – Y4 level license.
