Traverse Tall Ship Company is seeking a full time Scout master! Sailing Yacht Scout is a gleamingly-varnished Cabo Rico 38 that operates as an uninspected vessel for small-group adventures. She is usually singled-handed, unless on all-day excursions. She is based in the thriving tourist town of Traverse City, Michigan and conducts multiple sails each day on the waters of Grand Traverse Bay.
PROGRAM & ITINERARY:
Scout operates seven days a week from Memorial Day through early October, sailing multiple times per day from her well-appointed marina berth. Her base sail is a two-hour excursion in the afternoon or for sunset, which can be extended.

The goal of all excursions is for all passengers to have an experience onboard that can serve as the capstone of their vacation or summer.
The Captain is responsible for safe and efficient operations, ensuring excellent passenger interactions, and vessel upkeep.
