Thousands of “wannabe” crew are attracted by the sunshine, high salaries and travel of the superyacht industry. If this glamorous lifestyle appeals to you, there is no question that you need the basic training in safety, seamanship and boat handling on your CV before anyone will even consider you for crew work. This is a tough game to get into and a highly professional part of the industry, which requires a watertight CV.

Separately from the crew training we offer to the public, we also work with a number of superyachts and their agents, often flying overseas to carry out training and consultancy onboard.

We define superyachts as those craft over 24m in length.

Crew Training

New crew will need to complete a mixture of Safety Training and Boat Handling Courses. We recommend the following courses as a minimum:

More experienced or career-minded superyacht crew will need to work towards their PWC Instructor and Yachtmaster Offshore qualifications in addition to those listed above. Modules needed for these additional qualifications include:

We also offer higher level medical training for superyacht deck officers.
