DO you dream of sailing around the world on a superyacht? You may be able to do it with no qualifications or savings.
Stewardess Caitlin shared how she makes £4,000 a month on a luxury vessel, doesn’t pay for rent and food, and saves her entire pay.
Caitlin lifted the lid on the glamorous lifestyle and what it is really like looking after wealthy guests.
She works as a second stewardess on a 60m yacht, and can rack up between $3,000 (£2,414) and $5,000 (£4,025) per month – and that is before any tips.
Caitlin said her biggest tip was $5,000 (£4,025) for two weeks’ work.
Tips can be anything between 10 – 15 per cent of the charter cost, so can be a massive added bonus.

On her @superyachtgirl TikTok account, Caitlin added: “You can save your whole monthly salary as most of your expenses are paid for.
“Things like medical insurance, toiletries, meals, snacks, holiday accrued leave and accommodation are covered while you are employed.
“Even down to your toothbrush and shampoo.”
And a major perk is being able to “travel the world” and seeing beautiful sights every day.

Highlights include Bora Bora, Capri and Tahiti and staff often get days off to enjoy their locations between charters.
The yacht worker didn’t need a university degree to apply, but said you do need a passport and a “good attitude”.
Caitlin did need to get some training, and revealed she got her STCW95 and her ENG1 Medical to start the job.
She got her first job at the age of 21 and managed to secure the position after her partner landed a job on the yacht.
Caitlin said: “We worked onboard for almost 2 years together.”
The hardest part of the job is being away from family – and this can be for a year at a time – but the stewardess said she finds it easier being with her partner.
People always assume life on board is like the hit reality TV show Below Deck, but Caitlin insists it is only 10 per cent of what working on a superyacht is really like.
However, there is a lot of hooking up that goes on between staff – but often people will end up in couples.
She said: “My boat is mainly couples.”
One person asked her if rich guests are ever rude to her, and she replied: “Yes and no, it depends on the type of guests.”
