Yacht Staff Training

Who is Yacht Staff training for?

The skills required to perform yacht staff duties are both technical and skilled. It’s your job to ensure the highest quality of service to your guests onboard. It’s our job to teach you how. If your skill set isn’t already impeccable, then our training program is for you.

The right training program is the difference between acceptable and exceptional. Where do you want to be?

What are our students saying about our yacht training?

  • Anouk I am constantly eager to learn, challenge myself and understand everything in order to reach that goal. Michael the trainer is a very thorough individual, who makes sure you will leave feeling that you understand everything. He is a very patient teacher. A massive thank you, I could not be on the path to success without Polo & Tweed.
  • Amadeus I took the course to improve my skills and increase my job prospects. I would certainly recommend this course. There was a vast selection of topics covered. The trainer was exceptional, with his inside knowledge of the industry shared during the training.
  • Talita It was easy to book the course, Lucy was very helpful. I wanted to improve my skills and find a job on land. I would strongly recommend this training to a friend. The trainer has huge experience and a professional approach.

Brilliant communication and very encouraging when you struggle. I can’t believe how much I’ve learnt from such experienced trainers. It’s been utterly brilliant.

About Our Yacht Staff Training

Our training outperforms traditional yacht staff training programs for two main reasons:

Personalised Training – Our trainers are the best in class. They are able to quickly assess where your skill levels are and provide you with the training you need to reach the level of service you want to be at.

Active Training – The focus of our training is giving a safe space to physically rehearse the skill set you desire. By developing your practical application in all areas, your confidence and skill level will increase. The knowledge and understanding of all aspects of yacht crew techniques and tools within the yacht itself is very important and we cover that too. Finely tuning your skills to give you a deeper understanding of the practice onboard.

We have trained hundreds of students and we know everyone is different. Our trainers know how to adjust our course to fit your needs so you are always engaged and you are learning at the highest level possible.

Training Options

Private Yacht Staff Training

Private, one-on-one instruction is the best way to learn. One of the biggest benefits of private training is that our trainers come to you. Learning yacht skills in situ gives you the best opportunity to fine tune your skills in the exact place where you’ll be using them.

Private courses are customised to your exact needs so you can request specialised skill sets and learn at your own pace.

Group Yacht Staff Classes

Group classes provide an alternative the one-on-one training. To maintain quality we limit our class sizes to small groups, as we feel this allows students to learn most efficiently.

We offer three types of group training, Silver Service, Housekeeping and Yacht Management.  These intensive courses are rigorous enough to turn a beginner into a qualified specialist and to sharpen the skills of a master.
