RYA Yachtmaster Commercially Endorsed

As a professional skipper, the RYA Yachtmaster certificate commercially endorsed is highly recommended and we pay our highest rate to those that have them.

RYA Yachtmaster

The RYA Yachtmaster certificate is the most recognised and respected qualification around the world and is the ultimate aim of many skippers looking for work opportunities in flotilla, charter, deliveries or instruction.

We encourage all our skippers to obtain this license and give a higher salary to those who have it.
