Japanese Passport for working in Med

Hi, I am a Japanese with Japanese passport and have permanent residence in UK which allow me to work in UK without no restriction at all. As Japan does not accept dual-citizenship, I can not hold British passport unless I want to give up my Japanese nationality. Can I still seek for work as a stewardess on yacht , for example, in Antibes...? Can I still work on MCA registered yacht?? As Japanese, I don't need to get any VISA to enter any of EU countries because of VISA waver system, but usually it doesn't allow me to work freely... I am desperate to work on yacht and can not find any information for Japanese passports... Thank you
