As the newest two members of the FantaSea Family, one of the things that impressed us the most about FantaSea Yachts during our multiple interviews was the longevity of the staff. It was clear to both of us that we were lucky to be interviewing for a position at all because positions at FantaSea rarely became available. In addition, our interviews took place during the height of the economic downturn and we both think that we were one of the few people in the U.S. that were actually offered a position when so many were loosing their jobs– But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Needless to say, we were a little more than nervous about our prospects of actually getting the job – but here we are blogging about our illustrious careers, now at FantaSea!
FantaSea is family through and through – from the Ginzburg family to the deck hands and dishwashers! In fact, there are three generations here working together. During school holidays, you will often see father and son working together out on the yachts so that the young men appreciate the hard work that goes into their upbringing.
The Captain, crew and staff have all been working together for ten to twenty years. As part of our interview process, we had to work a yacht party. We were both super impressed with the team – they worked like a well-oiled machine! The entire crew is very versatile and shares responsibilities to ensure a seamless cruise. We were personally amazed as we watched the party deck where a ceremony was held be transformed into the most elegant dinning room in a flash – it was actually less than 8 minutes. We were later informed that this is standard operating procedure for this group!
The impact of a group of this caliber and their knowledge and experience can’t be measured when it comes to your party and makes us proud and confident to plan parties here at FantaSea Yachts.
