deep sea captain


Explanation:
We think the answer is: deep sea captain.
The Spanish word means deep or far, etc. In the Merchant Navy there a number of captains. One is Coastal Captain, one is Deep Sea Captain. Venezuela has the same titles for its captains.
Suerte!

agree  aabs: But extra master is an exam above captain. 'Deep sea' or 'foreign going' as opposed to 'coastal' is the correct term.
