Yacht Captain Special Training

The Captain is responsible for the safety, the operation and the navigation of the superyacht, while also being the point of contact for the owner. Deck Officers of the Merchant Navy are quite often selected to master a superyacht, as their previous experience in navigating merchant vessels has equipped them with numerous skills that enable them to properly respond to the challenges of their multi-faceted role aboard a superyacht.

The YACHT CAPTAIN SPECIAL TRAINING programme aims to assist Merchant Navy Officers in making a successful career swift and in adjusting their skills to better fit into the superyacht industry demands.
