• Professional Yachtmaster (PYT)


A intensive fastrack Professional Yachtmaster Training course.

The RYA Yachtmaster course is ideal for those considering a career change, a gap year or gaining employment in the sailing industry. It would also be great personal training to confidently cruise your own yacht throughout the world. The RYA Yachtmaster certificate can create opportunities for work onboard yachts, and is essential for aspiring skippers, RYA Cruising Instructors, and anyone looking to provide yacht deliveries.

Lasting  approximately 17 weeks with 75 days on the water and 25 days ashore, working towards RYA/MCA DoT Yachtmaster with commercial endorsement, this is an intensive and rewarding course. Numbers on the course are limited to ensure a more tailored experience.  The sailing areas will encompass the Firth of Clyde, the Irish Sea and the UKs best cruising area; the West Coast of Scotland!  Combining these areas give great diversity, challenging sailing, strong tides, a variety of anchorages, marinas and harbours, as well as superb scenery.

Our aim is to produce experienced and rounded skippers that are not just confident to pass the Yachtmaster exam but who feel that the base for a successful career in yachting has been laid. To allow this to happen, we realise that people will learn at different rates. We will endeavour to build your experience at a pace that suits. Students also spend time with maintenance professionals who train them in the basics of rope work, yacht maintenance, sail repair, marine electronics, winch servicing, outboard maintenance and gel coat and fibreglass repair.
