Job Opening Mystic Seaport Professional Captain Required

Ahoy CF Captains!

I came across this Job Available notice for Mystic Seaport that should be interesting to sailors who love boats, especially traditional boats and ships. This is a paid, professional position, that has some license requirements and also offers the possibility of living aboard one of the yachts or boats.

I have no connection to the Mystic Seaport Museum, and I am merely sharing this job notice so others in this group can see it, and sharing it here as "paying it forward."

Mystic Seaport?

Mystic Seaport is the nation's leading maritime museum. Founded in 1929 to gather and preserve the rapidly disappearing artifacts of America's seafaring past, the Museum has grown to become a national center for research and education with the mission to inspire an enduring connection to the American maritime experience.

The Museum's grounds cover 19 acres on the Mystic River in Mystic, CT and include a recreated 19th century coastal village, a working shipyard, exhibit halls, and state-of-the-art artifact storage facilities. The Museum is home to more than 500 historic watercraft, including four National Historic Landmark vessels, most notably the 1841 whaleship Charles W. Morgan, America's oldest commercial ship still in existence.

With a full-time staff of 150 that swells to 350 during the summer season, the Museum hosts 250,000 visitors annually. Mystic Seaport employs a diverse staff of scholars, librarians, historic interpreters, educators, scientists, musicians, and skilled artisans.

A stroll through the historic village transports visitors back to the mid-1800s where they can experience firsthand from staff historians, storytellers, musicians, and craftspeople just what life was like to earn one's living from the sea. In the Henry B. duPont Preservation Shipyard, they can watch shipwrights keeping the skills and techniques of traditional shipbuilding alive as they restore and maintain the Museum's watercraft collection.

The Museum's 41,000 sq. ft. Collections Research Center (CRC) offers access to more than 2 million artifacts and is also home to the G.W. Blunt White Library, a 75,000-volume research library where scholars from around the world come to study America's maritime history.

For more than 80 years, visitors, students, and scholars have turned to Mystic Seaport to preserve and interpret America's maritime experience. The Museum's commitment to that mission is as strong as ever.
