Should I be discouraged about my gender?

Hi there, I'm a young lad (19) looking to get involved in this industry later on this year, as the opportunity I have to get started is way too good to pass up! I am however slightly nervous about the fact that myself being a male, will make life much harder for me becoming a steward on-board a luxury yacht. I feel like I am over thinking things in regard to how hard it will be, however, is there anybody who can let me know if many captains/owners do in fact have strict rules in place for the gender of the yachts stewards and stewardess' they employ as members of their crew. Additionally to this, will my age and youthful looks also discourage certain yachts from employing me regardless of my qualifications and great work ethic? 

Thanks, Scott.

Like most of us, get out and give it a go.

What have you got to lose.
