WORK ON A YACHT

Yacht specific training

South African Yachties can help you with anything and everything you need to know about this ever evolving industry. Through trial and error, we have developed a very strategic yet practical formula for preparing young yachtsmen and woman for the Super Yachting Industry. It is all the information and ten years of experience, which you can’t get a certificate for, but is bound to help you save a lot of time and money.

Is this right for you?

It’s true that there are ups and downs of working as a crew member on board today’s luxury superyachts. With long working hours, little spare time, and some mundane, less than pretty jobs, it’s no picnic. But the perks? There are many! If you can cope with the pitfalls, then the rewards for all the hard work can be life-changing. It’s no secret that superyachts travel to the most exotic and luxurious destinations, and you’ll be able to experience these up close. You’ll find you get some fantastic views when cruising as well as berthing or anchoring in some of the most picturesque and eye-catching locations on earth. Whether it’s a day’s holiday, going for a jog or heading off the yacht for an errand, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to experience many of the locations you visit – something which may usually cost you thousands to explore yourself.
