Spend a summer in the Greek sunshine looking after our yacht fleet? With the back-up of our shore-based maintenance team, the Neilson Flotilla Engineers take ownership of the maintenance and upkeep of our yachts.

Not only will you be able to diagnose and repair a variety of breakdowns, but also interact well with guests, other team members and build rapport with ease.

You’ll need to be motivated by a challenge and ready to deal with any problems, albeit at sea, back at base or in a beautiful remote location.

If you’re an experienced flotilla engineer, that’s great! If you have mechanical know-how, but you’ve never worked on a yacht before, no problem!

You’ll need to be confident with diesel engines, 12-volt electrics and basic plumbing, and over the years, some of our best Neilson yacht engineers have come from an agricultural & car mechanic background.

You’ll be based in Greece where we have two sailing centres in Vounaki and Sivota. Both are equally stunning with a choice of yacht flotilla routes for all abilities and levels of experience.

We’ll cover your accommodation and bills in the package along with exciting opportunities to work with us all year round.
