Yacht Stew Solutions
Yacht Steward/Stewardess
Training Manual

“The Yacht Service Bible”
The Service Manual For Every Yacht


It will teach you to recognize what it takes to become one of the most knowledgeable and skilled professional service persons in the industry

There are a few books out today about how to get a job in yachting…


But none of them concentrates on the actual details of what you need to know to meet the service standards and expectations on a yacht once you get the job.


This book teaches you how to get the job but then the “meat” of the book gives you all of…

The complete step by step training and full details about…
Everything you need to know
To Be Highly Successful In Your Career As
A Yacht Steward Or Stewardess.

This is the most complete training manual for yacht Stewards and Stewardesses that I am aware of.
This is the book that I wish had been available when I became a yacht stew.

There is nothing quite like this book available on the market.

It is for stews that are interested in learning more and in being among the most knowledgeable and skilled professional yacht stews in the world. It clears up the unnecessary confusion that is out there about different definitions and descriptions of service standards, skills, and expectations. It is highly informative and entertaining.


It gives interesting and entertaining anecdotes and stories about the history of service and of the tools and techniques that stews use every day in their work. For stews, The Yacht Service Bible makes your work more interesting and enjoyable. It updates you on just what the standards are for the level of knowledge and skill a steward/ess should have at every stage of your career.


For the beginning stew, it gives you access to the vast body of knowledge of everything you will be expected to know. One of the first things new stews have to learn about is how to interact appropriately with guests and with each other. Professional etiquette and protocol are important. Creating and keeping appropriate boundaries, learning to be discrete, and maintaining confidentiality are essential within this unique private service environment, and this book tells you all about it.


For the experienced stew, this book helps you dig much deeper and learn so much more detail about the service, administration, and housekeeping skills you are already using. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you are to enhance your guests’ experience aboard any yacht.


Becoming the best stew that you can possibly be adds value to your life, because it helps you to enjoy serving others more, and make more money.

What does this manual contain for you?

The PYA (Professional Yachting Association) has defined international standards for service, and this book will teach you what you need to know to meet these standards.


This book will teach you to identify and quantify a service delivery system. This feature provides the benefit of teaching stews (and captains) how to classify the vast amount of service information that stews are expected to know. Stews are responsible for a huge amount of material, now what are they supposed to do with it?


This book goes into detail to help you learn to organize the necessary information according to categories, such as: food and guest services; housekeeping; administration; clothing and laundry. Just as importantly, it will educate you on the soft skills that are so vital for career success in this industry: Poise, attitude, and boundaries; confidentiality and gossip control; developing and maintaining enthusiasm so your crew can bond together as an elite, effective team.


It will lead stews through the process of taking what they’ve learned and then categorizing and implementing it based on the standards and requirements for their yacht. The final piece of the puzzle is always, what does this specific yacht want? How do they want it done? What level and style of service do they want? Every yacht has its own “personality” and social structure, depending on the owners’ preferred style of service, the work policies of the vessel, and the management style of the captain. This book helps you factor all of this information in so you can customize service that fits your yacht perfectly.

In her own words…


I was in my early thirties when I started yachting, and I already had a lot of experience in hotels, bartending and waiting tables in very fine restaurants. At a certain point in my early stewardess career, I felt stifled and was yearning for more training. I had the luxury of finding a week-long yacht butler service training class during my second year on boats. It just whetted my appetite for more.


I have been a stewardess on yachts for over two decades… since 1991. I have been writing a newspaper column for The Triton, a yachting newspaper since 2007. I write a column called Stew Cues, with tips and information that helps stews do their job better, be happier, and make more money by being better-informed.


I have been interviewed by… and had multi page feature articles written about me in “Megayacht News”, and in “The Triton”, and in “Dockwalk”. My articles have been picked up and reposted by online journals such as “”.


Over the years, I have had the opportunity to hire and train quite a few junior stewardesses and help them get started in the industry.


Then I was approached by the Maritime Professional Training academy in Fort Lauderdale to write and teach 5-day and 10-day yacht interior service classes that I taught on their premises. Maritime Professional Training is one of the most widely recognized schools in the world. They train commercial sailors, merchant marines, US Coast Guard, as well as yachting crew. I researched and wrote a manual of about 100 pages of lecture notes. The class that I taught there covered 52 training modules over a 10-day period. I am so grateful for the time I spent at MPT, because during that time I saw the real need for specialized information for superyacht stews, and I became very passionate about researching and developing this information. Now here it is, all together in one place at last!


Today, the internationally recognized PYA (Professional Yachting Association) has defined universal standards for service, and this book will teach you what you need to know to meet these standards. I have been honored to be included in the international work-group creating these standards. I am happy to say that I have been teaching and writing about everything that you need to know since the very beginning of my teaching and writing career, so you can rest assured that I know my material.


Training on location on yachts is my specialty. It is a great tool for owners and captains to use for motivating crew to excel. I see it as a way to reward crew. It gives them a sense of validation. It allows them to train together as a team. It is cost effective, versus each stew taking time off to go to a classroom setting, one at a time, and at great cost to them. I have traveled directly to yachts and trained stews right on board private and charter yachts. I have done this on yachts based in Florida; the Bahamas; Newport, Rhode Island; St. Thomas, U.S Virgin Islands; St. Marten, Dutch West Indies; Istanbul, Turkey; and Bergen, Norway. I used an earlier outline of “The Yacht Service Bible” as the basis of my education aboard those yachts. I have greatly expanded that information to create this book.


In an ongoing effort to provide the greatest value to my clients at every level of service, I have also been consulting with yacht building companies to create interior service training materials for yacht owners and their captains. I believe that the best way of addressing one of the biggest crew problems and the source of the greatest hidden costs is by addressing crew turnover. The crew are the frontline point of contact and have the greatest influence on the overall guest experience of yachting. If the crew feel that their best interests are being looked after, they will be more engaged and try harder to do their best to make the owner’s and guests’ dreams come true on board the yacht. Captains and owners have a great amount of input here, where owners and crew meet on a level playing field.


The cost of my training in a classroom setting in Fort Lauderdale
to get this information can be as high as $2,500 PER PERSON!
That’s a Total Information Value Of
