With SailTime in Norfolk Virginia your dream of combining a passions for boating with a job on the water is a reality.
SailTime is one of the most exciting opportunities to happen in the boating industry in the past 20 years. Our base of operations in Little Creek is one of more than 20 franchise locations across the country. We offer sailboat memberships, certified sailing courses and day charters on our fleet of 11 boats which range in size from 22 foot Catalina Capris up to 45 foot sailing catamarans.
We are seeking part time marine mechanics with 3 to 5 years experience maintaining recreational sailboats and power boats.
We are interested in self-starters with the initiative and drive to help keep our fleet in top operating condition.

Boat handling skills and a Virginia Boater Safety Education Certificate (or NASBLA approved equivalent) are required as mechanics are occasionally tasked to move boats between slips or to the nearby dock for refueling and pump out.
SailTime is a drug free workplace. We comply with all applicable regulations and participate in a certified random drug and alcohol testing program.
