Our Motor Yachts Used For Teaching RYA Cruising Courses

With a Sealine Sc29 sports cruiser & our Fairline Squadron 48 flybridge motor yacht on hand we can usually offer any course at short notice. Our RYA motor cruising courses all include accommodation on board the motor yacht at no extra charge. RYA motor cruising courses are the gateway to the ICC license. In order to skipper a yacht over 10m in length in international waters you will need to hold the RYA Day Skipper Practical Motor Cruising Course certificate which converts to the ICC license. If you feel you have the skills already then you can take you ICC direct assessment with us normally on a single day.
