In 60 Days

The proven strategy to launch (and grow) an exciting yacht chef career. Save money for your future and experience the adventures of a lifetime.

If you’re a restaurant chef, personal chef or passionate home cook looking to increase your income while creating more adventure in your life, then you probably already know that launching a career as a superyacht chef is the lifestyle change you need.

So I'll spare you the spiel.

No need to be a broken record and convince you of something that's been dreaming of for a while now.

You probably already KNOW that launching a yacht chef career is the key to creating a life of adventure while saving for your future.

You've probably also heard that the superyacht crew industry is worth roughly $7 Billion and growing. (source: The Superyacht Group Impact Study)

HERE'S WHAT YOU

MIGHT NOT KNOW

A superyacht chef career can:

  • Boost your saving potential

    You'll save most of your salary because all your living expenses on a yacht are covered. And if you're on a charter yacht, you have the potential to earn substantially more with gratuities.
  • Fill your need for travel & adventure

    Get paid to travel to places like you'd see in travel magazines. Winter in the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Spend summers in the Mediterranean and Alaska. All while honing your chef skills and learning how to scuba dive and kite surf. No other cooking career can give you this exciting travel opportunity.
  • Instantly build your industry reputation and credibility

    Once you're a successful yacht chef, your authority in the food world skyrockets allowing you to command higher rates for your precious time. This can lead to all kinds of exciting and unexpected career opportunities.
  • Enable you to ditch the late-night restaurant shift work

    A yacht chef career means you'll no longer have to work those exhausting late night shifts. Instead, you'll have predictable schedules that give you freedom to pursue your interests outside of work.

Hey, I'm Tracy.

In the Superyacht Chef Academy I’ve taken everything I’ve learned from over 20+ years and over $1 million earned in the yachting industry and channeled it into a complete step-by-step program.

It not only teaches you how to successfully launch your career but also how you can excel and become a top superyacht chef.

You’ll learn the strategies behind everything you need to do but, more importantly, you’ll have a step-by-step plan that leaves nothing out.

Even though the reasons to pursue a superyacht chef career are a complete no-brainer, the process involved in actually landing your first job is anything but simple.

START A YACHT CHEF CAREER? AWESOME.

But where do I start?

Perhaps in your most frustrated moments you've decided to finally look into a superyacht chef career.

You've googled yachting jobs. 

Made long to-do lists with next steps you’ve yet to follow up on.

You've gotten all excited about potential income and maybe even decided where you'd like to start.

If you're super committed, you maybe even started saving for an airline ticket to get you to a yachting center. 

But even with the best intentions, most would-be yacht chefs end up abandoning the journey and allowing less-talented chefs to swoop in and grab those yacht positions while they stay stuck in low-paying kitchen jobs.

 

Here's why most would-be yacht chefs abandon the project:

Without a super clear step-by-step plan, most would-be yacht chefs get stuck at the research stage and never take the next step.

They fall victim to confusion and a lack of clarity about what the REAL next steps are to start their yacht chef career.

 

Here's why confusion will kill your dream of becoming a yacht chef before it even sets sail..

As an already busy chef with bills to pay and an everyday job to get to, you can't afford to veer off course.

And the moment you get lost in trying to figure out how to launch a yacht career, you waste so much time without getting anywhere that it feels too late to launch the career of your dreams.

That's why starting a career on yachts is something you NEED to get right the first time. 

And luckily for you VERY FEW people out there who are doing it right.

Most of the time your competitors have either failed to even start the process of becoming a yacht chef, or they got frustrated and gave up before they got their first job.

Which means...

Even if you're late to the party, there's still an opportunity for you to jump in... (and make some serious money while you're at it.)

As long as you avoid the same costly mistakes your competitors are making.

The 3 Reasons Most Aspiring Yacht Chefs Never Achieve Their Superyacht Dreams

(and how to guarantee you will)

Believing a Yacht Chef Job is Just Like Restaurant Work

As a yacht chef you need to know how to produce experiences to wow your high-end guests, create weekly menus for guests and crew, and provision a yacht for an entire season away from port.

Most chefs approach their yacht chef career as just another thing to do or learn. But the thing is, you can’t treat a yacht chef position as just another cooking job.

While it’s an immensely lucrative career that, when done right, can earn you a tremendous income, you do need to develop a different skill set to become a highly respected yacht chef.

Thinking You Need to be a 5-Star Restaurant Chef to Work on a Yacht

If you have fine dining restaurant experience that's amazing - there are lots of opportunities for you in the yachting world!

But if you don't have restaurant experience, don't let that stop you.  If you love cooking for friends and family and you’re passionate about food, there’s a yacht size and program to suit you also. 

You just need to discover the type of yacht and program best suited to your skills and approach your desired job accordingly.

Believing There's a Lot of Competition for the Chef Positions

The superyacht industry is growing fast. Currently there are over 15,000 yachts in the world with professional crew and chefs onboard… and more are being built every year. 

Because the cooking is a skilled position chefs and cooks are always in demand.  Most newcomers to the industry are looking for the unskilled entry-level jobs of deckhand or steward/ess. So as a chef you won’t find the competition that most other newcomers to yachting face.

When you know how to manage the tasks a yacht chef position requires, such as -- entertaining high-paying guests, provisioning for extended periods away from port, and managing a budget - you'll be in high demand.

Shhh...I'm going to let you in on a

Dirty Little Secret

 

Even though the superyacht crew industry is MASSIVE and quickly growing, it's not an evenly distributed one. 

A few people will have huge success, while others just won't make it. 

And the main reason for this is that while the barriers to entry are relatively LOW...

...the barriers to SUCCESS are fairly high.

But as long as you can avoid the biggest mistakes that sink would-be yacht chefs, the path is paved for you and getting your first yacht chef position is fairly easy.

Getting your first position sets you on the path to achieve more freedom and create more income while also living an exciting life of adventure.

With your permission, that earning-good-money-while-you-travel lifestyle is what I'd LOVE to show you how to create.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Questions our top students asked before signing up for Superyacht Chef Academy.

Good question! Yes! There are currently over 15,000 yachts over 35 meters with professional crew and chefs onboard. The chef position is the only skilled entry-level job so therefore you won't have a lot of competition. Good chefs and cooks are always in demand on yachts.

Great question! After you've gone through the Superyacht Chef Academy program, you'll know exactly how to manage the galley and juggle all the necessary tasks that are required of a yacht chef.

I'm so glad you asked! You definitely don't need 5-star restaurant cooking experience. If you're passionate about food and cooking, there's a yacht size and program to suit all levels of skill and experience. You can start small and work up as you gain experience in the industry.

The 4 Modules of course content are dripped out over a 4 week period. Every week you'll receive an email letting you know that another Module has been released.

All your living expenses will be paid by the yacht, so that means you can save most of your salary. Most yachts don't deduct taxes, that would be up to you to pay in your respective country.
