Yacht Owners Training Course

Mabway delivers a full range of recognised accredited maritime training courses. Our ex-Royal Navy instructors deliver training from our training facilities at Northney Marina and Denvilles House in Havant, Hampshire.

The 2 day Yacht Owners Training Course is designed for owners of private yachts and motor vessels. The course covers basic onboard maintenance and repair tasks. This will allow the vessel owners to undertake these tasks themselves rather than incur expensive boatyard costs. It will also give the vessel owner key 'get you home' skills to tackle problems which may arise at sea.
