We are looking for a Captain/Engineer or couple to join our Deerfoot 62 Bucephalus, currently based in Shelter Bay Marina, Panama. The right person/persons will be available to join the yacht in the next week or so and will spend a couple weeks preparing the yacht and familiarising him/herself with systems for a Panama Canal Transit followed by a delivery up to La Paz, Baja California. Experienced Blue water sailors only need apply. The yacht is in excellent condition and has had a brand new engine installed a month ago with 150 hours on it. The only system that I need to get work on is the Autopilot. I have ordered a new one for installation in Panama prior to the commencement of the trip. I would expect the trip to La Paz to take around 15 days depending on weather and logistics. Prep time and Transit should take the same, so you are looking at around a month's work, maybe 5-6 weeks tops.
All flights and on board expenses covered and salary will be dependent on relevant experience.
