    For those of you interested in the Luxury yacht sector there is a good survey on Dockwalk's website for both Captain's and other officers that is a good collation of results of many people.

    Service engineer. Just to make your salary comparable. I calculate you work 244 days a year. (365-40)(3/4).

    So youre on a day rate of 303. Presumably taxed. So after tax but before NIC 55,000 pa or 225 per day. Not bad at all.
