If a hostess is part of a larger crew, it is usually not in charge of cooking and supplying foodstuffs (it is a chef’s job), as well as for any repairs, attachment assistance etc. In that case, that’s the responsibility of sailor and hostess is concerned that everything is clean and neatly, as well as serving table, serving food, etc.

Like for a skipper, if you book a hostess, it is your duty to reserve a place for sleeping on board and food for hostess, so you have to keep that in mind while choosing a yacht for rent and buying food.
