You can order both sail & powerboat certificates at the end of our 10 day IYT Crew/Skipper course

We run our training course aboard our Jeanneau 43DS, an X-99 sport sailing yacht and our cruising catamaran, a Prout Escale 39, all students will train on all 3 yachts during each 10 day course. While none of these yachts are considered to be a power boat, you will learn the same types of systems aboard you will find on most power modern yachts and you will get experience in driving and docking a variety of yachts.

The majority of the info we cover during our 10 day course, such as navigation & passage planning, the international collision regulations, yacht systems, safety, anchoring and more will apply to any type of vessel you take to sea, whether mono-hull, multihull, sail or power. The inboard Yanmar diesel engines, the electrical and other mechanical systems, anchoring/docking gear, etc. are similar to those found aboard most modern power yachts.

Many of our students do go on to sail, charter and buy monohulls & multihulls both sail & power. It will be fairly easy to apply the lessons, skills and experience you gain during our well rounded training program to any yacht, sail or power, in the future. All of our students can apply for IYT certificates for sail, power or both at the conclusion of our training course.
