Discover Yachting 365

presents the

Big Boat Confidence Learning Charter

Thanks for your interest in this course.

We created this course primarily because of the enjoyment we have in seeing people gain confidence in operating a yacht. Along with the course Discover Yachting 365 also offers Standard Proficiency Certificates for Insurance Providers.

Secondly, it is because we firmly believe that if you plan to begin yachting, and especially if you plan to purchase a yacht, then a little experience with the basics is going to be vital in making an informed decision.

Training classes like these or Advanced Ship Handling courses at Yachting Schools are likely to cost up to $5,000 and not be on a real motor yacht. Training with many other students in a session on a 35 foot boat is not conducive to gaining much real time experience, nor is it a relaxed environment.

We have access to various types of legitimate motor yachts depending on what you would like to learn on, whether Flying Bridge, Express Cruiser, Joystick and/or Direct drive.

Our selection begins at 40ft and currently runs up to 70ft in length.

These sessions are designed to be one-on-one to provide maximum instruction in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
