There really is no better way to prepare for your new life as a Motor Yachtmaster Skipper - we cover way more than just the basic RYA Yachtmaster Motor Fast Track course, in complete air conditioned luxury, in one of the best warm and tidal locations in Europe.
. . . I didn't fancy spending 12 weeks, sharing tiny cabins on a 36 foot work boat luckily a friend recomended Allabroad. They offer training on the largest, fully air conditioned, and most luxurious training vessel in the RYA scheme - yet they still maintain a maximum 5 to 1 ratio to ensure you get hands on training. . .
This course from start to finish is about preparation for working in the Yachting Industry, it's no holiday although there will be times when you can sit back and relax, there will be other times you are up to your elbows in oil! You will gain valuable experience looking after the 2 X 480hp Diesel engines, fly by wire, and other complex systems you, as a future skipper, will be expected to manage onboard a typical £500k Motor cruiser.
. . . Most school training boats are kept as simple and basic as possible, and as small as acceptable to cut costs. Allabroad seem to have taken completely the opposite approach with their training motor cruiser.

You will achieve:
Becoming an RYA Yachtmaster Motor Skipper is becoming more difficult than ever, the expectations from the examiners and industry professionals have risen sharply over the last year. You will need to do more than just pick up a fender and a bucket. You need understand all the on-board systems, how they work, how to maintain them and if necessary carry out repairs.
This 11 week course goes much deeper than any other training course. We have deliberately chosen a 47 foot luxury motor cruiser with all the complex on board systems which you will be monitoring and maintaining during your training, definately not your every day school boat. We are here to prepare you for work in the global yachting industry and not just to get you through your Yachtmaster exam. There is more to becoming a good Yacht skipper than just passing the exam.
If you are hard working and dedicated to your tasks then we can easily find work for you in the yachting industry, we train and recruit prioritising our own students since we can vouch for the training. What better way to get to really know someone than a 6 to 11 week job interview. Your recruitment process will start from the moment your course commences, so you can concentrate on the training whilst we concentrate marketing you as a professional skipper.
