SOUTH AFRICAN YATCHTIES

WHAT IS THE "SOUTH AFRICAN YACHTIES" PROGRAM?

South African Yachties is a company that started over 4 years ago. We specialize in assisting people to get into the yachting industry and to progress once in. Recently we also expanded into helping South African crew with Schengen visas.
Super yachting is NOT the ideal ‘gap year’ as it is very expensive to get into and courses alone will cost you between R8000-R30 000, not to mention the flights, accommodation while you look for a job (paid for in Euro’s). Then you still need at least R70000 in your bank account for the visa. All of this and you aren’t even guaranteed to find a job.

One should also be very out-going, be able to compose themselves well around the worlds richest people, be well spoken and able to speak English fluently (another language like French, Spanish, Italian, Russian etc. is a bonus).
At South African Yachties will give you all of the information you need to decide if yachting is for you BEFORE you start booking and paying for expensive courses, flights, etc.

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.
