Yacht Master Fast Track Program

This course

The below qualifications and courses we offer, I have based on, and I am assuming here, no or limited experience to date, you will need to complete the following courses:

Powerboating level 2 course – 2 days
Helmsman – 2 days
VHF DSC marine radio course – Online / 1 day
Day Skipper theory online or classroom with us – 5 days
Day Skipper practical – 5 days

Yacht Master Prep 4 days
Yacht Master Exam 1 day - Booked directly with the RYA with our preferred examiners
Surveying boats with me, understanding every inch of a boat and it’s systems – 2-4 days

All in all you are looking at a reasonable investment in yourself, plus exam fees of £230. An example return in investment from a client whom has completed similar training is a 3-4 months on the super yachts or the wind farms or even local deliveries or ships at yacht master level. I have a lot of contacts in the industry and everyone who successfully completed and passed a course with us is currently working in the industry which is great but not always guaranteed. I can also assist with your marine CV giving you a template to work from. Bear in mind that our competitors can not touch us on what we offer and if they did the fee would be in in the region of £18,000+ for this part alone.

You may already have some experience and mileage which we can discuss. We also encourage you to seek delivery experience as much as you can on your own as this builds on your experience base.

Our style is fun and informal natural instructing, whilst being safe at sea. We operate European wide for deliveries and our training centre is based on the beautiful Jurassic coast line in Dorset.

Let me know your thoughts on these courses which is a lot of fun! We also offer a fast track for power vessels also, you could do a combined course for sail and power costing an additional fee to the above, this will give you better access also to the market place with multi skilled qualifications. Just a thought.

Branching out from the above qualifications is teaching on the water, marine surveying, safety boating, and the opportunity to gain a grant (once the above courses are complete) to study further to become an officer of the watch 3000 gross tonnes or higher we have had two recent students gain the grant and they are now officer of the watch on board cruise liners.
