Salary on-board a Super Yacht:

Salaries on-board a super yacht will vary greatly from the size of the yacht to whether the yacht is chartered (hired out) or used for private use only of the owner and friends. Generally speaking the larger yachts provide larger monthly salaries, as do the private yachts when compared to the charters yachts. However what you must remember is you are much more likely to get a tip on a charter yacht, this could easily double you monthly salary, sometimes quadruple your salary when paying guests are on-board. Remember also that your earnings may not be subject to tax deductions pending on the country you are from and your time away from your homeland. Also remember that all your accommodation, food, toiletries are provided on-board, which makes the below outlined salaries even more appealing.
