The Yachtmaster Offshore carries MCA recognition as a certificate of competency in its own right under the "Small Commercial Vessel’ and "Large Yacht" codes. Holders of the certificate can command a charter yacht up to 24m load-line length or 200 GT up to 150 nm from a safe haven.
This preparative session is not for beginners. You will learn: Practical boat handling and navigation in our 15 m steel hulled training yacht, the Motor Yacht Lord Nelson (we do not currently offer Yachtmaster Sail). You will gain practical command experience and, because of the weight of the yacht, she handles like a much larger vessel. The boat therefore provides an ideal training platform for those moving to larger yachts.
You are required to hold the VHF (SRC) GMDSS Radio Licence, Valid First Aid certificate (to have been taken within 3 years), Valid Personal Survival Techniques certificate, Valid ENG1, and online PPR certificate. We also ask you to complete an online Essential Navigation course before the Theory course to make sure you have the expected level of basic knowledge.
For Bluewater Crew Training Europe (France - Spain), this course is free with your ONE Account.
For Bluewater Crew Training USA (Ft. Lauderdale), the ONE Account will cover up to $500 of the Yacht Master Course only.
We provide this yacht training course in Fort Lauderdale & Antibes.Assessment
You will be examined by an RYA examiner on the last 2 days of the session, who will test your practical ability as well as your written and verbal theoretical knowledge.Prerequisites
