You will be wearing whites and saying Yes Ma'am & Sir, as you serve them their drinks.
And you will be needing a UK license to work on them.

Anyone want to bet they'll ask you to send money to secure your berth. Sounds like those Nigerian scammers have come up with a new con.

P.S. Spelling, syntax, and grammatical errors are the usual give away.

Pounds Sterling???

I thought all of Europe was on the Euro...

I wonder how many farthings, shillings and crowns 6,500 pound Sterling adds up to?

silly me

That's why the pay is so high...it's hazardous duty.
DrB failed to show you the rest of the email:

Nah - you'll be sitting in the corner with long pointy hat on with a sign that says "Dunce" :p

Any ship like this that is legit will have a website. This one doesn't. So I'm with AlanBrown on this.

If you show an interest, get ready to share your income. Not the one they are going to give you, the one you have now.:)

I am in communication with a Capt. Lawrence Derrick from the same motor yacht. I can't find a web site for the company. The only thing that turned up a google search was this forum.
I got a list of occupations needed for the ship and one of them is:
Nuclear Annalist............ $18,700
Why would a motor yacht need a nuclear annalist?
Sounds fishy to me but then again I am just a land lubber. I don't even have a passport but the captain assured me that their agency will help me in getting the necessary paperwork in order to work for aboard the ship.
I am going to pursue this but the first sign of them wanting money, ie scam, I am done with it.
The reason why I started getting emails in the first place is that I wanted to get to Hawaii and I thought that I could secure passage in exchange for work aboard a ship.

I think there may be just one too many "N's" in the word after nuclear. Then perhaps it is a vessel researching alternate means of propulsion. :confused:

I wouldn't even waste the cost of an e-mail postage stamp...
