Boatyard Hand  – Year Round 

During the Holiday Season

We are looking for someone willing to run around, off and on boats, all day, moving, cleaning and prepping them all morning, then showing customers on board in the afternoon. You may be showing customers how to use boats by the end of the summer.

5 days a week including Saturdays and the occasional Sunday  (day off during the week)

During the Winter Season

You’ll be getting the boats, houses and yard ready for next year’s customers. Scrubbing and polishing up the boat hulls, painting the houses and helping with maintenance on the yard

Winter hours are 5 days a week  Monday to Friday  – unless you would rather work Saturdays and have a day off mid week


You will be able to use the hire boats and day boats when available
