A yacht chef recently hosted a Q&A on Reddit to share what it's like working for some of the richest people in the world. In his words, "the typical boat I work on costs over $20 million." The guy has even worked for a Forbes top 50 member.
"The worst difficulties a yacht chef can face come from lack of sleep. I have had guests that pound music until 5 am and party and want snacks and what not all night but breakfast is still expected at 8am. It can be a 24-hour-a-day job. The last owner I worked for was like that. Oddest request? Hmmm...there's been a lot. I recently had a Mexican guest request cactus salad. I wasn't sure what that was or where to get cactus."
