Keenan publishes The Yacht Service Bible


Yacht stew Alene Keenan announced the publication of her ebook, “The Yacht Service Bible: The Service Manual for Every Yacht.”

Founder and CEO of Yacht Stew Solutions, Keenan compiled her 20 years of experience working on yachts into a 200 page step-by-step guide for yacht stews.

The book covers skills and requirements for STCW certification, styles of food and food service on yachts, housekeeping, laundry, yacht interior administration skills, yacht departments and responsibilities, chain of command, and many insider service secrets.

Several soft topics are also covered including skills that distinguish a fair steward from an outstanding one: poise, attitude, enthusiasm, personal boundaries, confidentiality, and gossip control.

“This is the book that I wish had been available when I started out in the yachting industry as a junior stewardess more than 20 years ago,” Keenan said. “It is not only for yacht stews, but for high-end service industry professionals everywhere.”
