English term or phrase:a 150-footer
Karina Befeld, president of Elite Crew International in Fort Lauderdale, estimates a captain of an 80-foot yacht typically earns $60,000 to $80,000 a year; for a 150-footer, the annual salary ranges from $130,000 to $150,000. Elite Crew International conducts interviews and background checks for owners seeking crewmembers for their yachts. Befeld says owners are expected to offer health insurance and four weeks of paid vacation to captain and crew. Owners should also request that crewmembers attend maritime academies to learn fire safety and medical training—certification often required by maritime regulations.
