How I can become a part of the yacht crew?

One of the first questions we all meet when we want to make a lifestyle change. There are a lot of people that apply every day for opening position on a yacht but only few make the cut. We are here to help you with all of this. From advice, specialized courses to recommendation that can help you find a job. We will help you how to write a CV in a proper way, how to present yourself to the industry, get the needed knowledge and certificates needed and finally give you an insight in a yachting industry as well how to adopt winning mentality!

Can I enroll in a single course?

Our academy is design to give you exactly what you need. Therefore, you can choose what fits your needs and in which part you want to broaden you knowledge. Even a single course can give you an advantage in finding the dream job or delivering the “WoW” factor in this industry!

Do your courses include practical part or just theoretical?

Professionals from yachting industry have developed our courses. Without practical knowledge, this would not be a complete story. Our courses are designed to give you extensive practical knowledge and teach you the smallest details that will help you in everyday situations on a yacht. On the end of every course we are taking you on a practical day – to visit a yacht so all of the knowledge learned can be simulated in a realistic environment.

Can you help me find a job?

Yes, we can. But please note that we are not a crewing agency. As this is one of the most common questions that we get we have developed a system of recommendation lists. So when you join our course feel free to give it your best and our instructors will help you with all they can to find you a suitable position. In the end we send out our recommendation list to our partner agencies which they can use to contact you for an opening position.
