Having been involved in Superyacht Crew RYA Training since its inception in 2007 we are certainly not new to the Yachting industry, our team are 'well-versed' in the etiquette of onboard operations. We know that each Yacht operates slightly differently and therefore are team will always take the lead from the crew onboard. Unlike many other businesses operating within the Yachting industry we do not perceive you as a 'cash cow' instead we simply see you as another way to educate new crew and guests in water safety and enjoyment. We will always do our upmost to minimise inconvenience to your busy schedules and be absolutely transparent regarding the costs and time involved.
