Description

Favourable offer for those who yearns to attain maximum experience with minimal waste shortly! The course is divided into 3 parts: Theory (VHF Operator + Competent crew + Bareboat skipper + Power) is set online on our site. The practice on a sailing yacht is during 2 weeks, the practice on a power boat is during 2-3 days.  You can see the timetable of practical course below.

 

Recommended for those who has never been at sea aboard a yacht! For those who want everything at once with maximum benefit!!!

 

What are the advantages?

 

You don’t come 2 times to train first on a sailing yacht, than on a power. There is only one flight!

 

There is only one transfer

 

Short period of training, you don’t need to interrupt your job for long.

 

As it is a package we make a discount for a “package offer”.

 

When certificates are issued you receive one certificate instead of two (this certificate is both sail and power).

 

The most important training on a power yacht separately from sailing is extremely expensive in other schools. It is because charter of a power yacht for a week is very expensive.

Profit is from 1500 euro.
