The Ohana is a 160ft yacht based in Split, Croatia. googles
Earning about $1,400 a month, crew members on the Ohana say they often receive large tips.
It's important to get along well with your colleagues, the superyacht crew told Insider.
Working on a superyacht can be tiring, so the captain needs to understand crew requirements.
Sailing as a guest on a superyacht is an unforgettable luxury experience.
For the crew, however, it's a different story altogether: they have to spend months working very long days before sleeping in tiny cabins tucked away on the ship.
Tea Kundić and Valentina Rijeka were two crew members who worked this summer on Ohana, a 160-foot superyacht based in Split, Croatia.
They spent six months hosting up to 30 guests and making sure everyone is happy from the first moment of the day until the last one goes to bed.
The crew cabins are tucked away at the rear of the main deck. Kundić and Rijeka each have their own en-suite cabins that they go to when their workdays are finally over.

Rijeka, 30, is the latest addition to Ohana's crew, led by captain and owner Josip Šerka.
She receives a base salary of 10,000 kuna (about US$1,400), but guests tend to tip generously at the end of their stay.
"Sometimes you get up to $1,000 more," Rijeka said of a typical tip after a seven-day charter.
Rijeka told Insiders that she's trying to save as much as possible to pursue her dream of opening a bar in Hawaii.
Šerka splits the tips equally among the crew and doesn't take a cut herself, according to the crew members.
Kundić, 24, described the captain as a "calm soul," adding, "He just cracks a few jokes and makes everyone happy."

The captain's right-hand man Zoran Vidović, 39, told Insider that working on a superyacht can be very enjoyable, but it's also often quite tiring. That's especially true when young people charter the yacht because "they just want to party," he says.
He recalls an incident where the crew was preparing to weigh anchor when some guests jumped into the water near the propellers: "You have to be there - you always have to think about safety."
Another skill is getting along with the other crew members, Rijeka says, "because you're sitting with the same people for months." It's important to "respect each other's boundaries" and give people space when they need it, adds added Kundic.
It's also important that everyone feels supported, she says: "Living on a boat for six months is a completely different life than being on land."
Šerka knows exactly how his crew feels because he was in their shoes before becoming captain.
"I've worked as a seaman, as a waiter in the kitchen - I've tried everything, so I know how difficult it is," he says. "I want to be the boss I wish I had when I was doing those jobs."
