Work on luxury yachts: the flip side of the coin
A little about the work of Sarah Begbie hostesses on superyachts:
Sarah Begbie started working on superyachts at the age of 23.
She spent a year and a half on the 50-meter Trinity yacht with her boyfriend
Thanks to her work, she traveled to Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Burma.
A private chef prepared food worthy of five star hotels for guests and crew members.
But the crew worked to wear 16 hours a day.
Sometimes her longest break did not exceed two minutes.
The couple lived in a tiny cabin, which Sarah called the "prison cell."
After midnight, she served desserts and snacks to guests, and got up at dawn in the morning to serve breakfast.
Billionaire owners advertise work on their yachts as an opportunity to have a good time (in the photo, the yacht "Mayan Queen IV").
Other hostesses also deliver guests drinks until 3 am, and then, after several hours of sleep, they get up to serve breakfast.
In these few hours of sleep, their cabins are full of people.
The memo distributed by employers refers to the constant rotation around the owners and guests of the yacht and that everyone who is engaged in this work should put aside their own desires.
Tracy Zarovski from Sydney also worked on superyachts and traveled in Europe for 7 years.
She says that even though the work and gave her the opportunity to travel the world, yet the industry itself is quite cruel.
“The demands are very high. I know one girl, she was a bit plump, and the owner of the yacht did not like it, as a result of which she was fired, ”says Tracy Zarovski.
Other flight attendants agree and say that they have been instructed to shut their eyes to the obscene behavior of the guests and to ignore the appearance of prostitutes on board.
Another girl said that the prostitutes on board were common, but drug use shocked more, once she found the billionaire owner literally with a needle in a vein.
Hostess says that she was forced to continue working when she was sick with bronchitis, and when the Russian guest threw tea into her face, because he did not like the drink.
But Dana Brown from New South Wales said that she enjoyed this year on a luxury yacht, despite the fact that customers needed a service at the highest level.
Brown says that the worst of her experience is to engage in a wasteful lifestyle, earning thousands, and you are wasting all at once.
The competition for jobs on yachts has greatly increased in recent years, and some accuse Instagram accounts of extolling what may actually be a grueling job.
However, in Australian newspapers nothing is said about drugs, indecent behavior, prostitution or exploitation of workers on the yacht “Mayan Queen IV”.
