Course: 

Yachtmaster Offshore

Course Description

Yachtmaster Theory course + Yachtmaster Practical course + Exam

The IYT Worldwide Yachtmaster Offshore certificate is a recreational certificate of competency to command sailing vessel up to 24 metres in length up to 150 nm offshore.

It is a comprehensive theory and live aboard course consisting of five days classroom theory and a practical component of six days for sail including the practical on the water examination.

The courses are designed to provide the highest standard of maritime education for the recreational yachtsman and woman and for those who are serious about obtaining the best nautical qualifications available. They are ideal for those who greatly want to expand their knowledge and experience and increase their confidence in commanding a yacht.

It is important to understand that an IYT certificate is a qualification that can be used across the globe.

Therefore, unlike other training organisations, IYT insists on an understanding of IALA Regulations in Areas A & B, weather systems in the North & Southern hemispheres, tidal calculations for the Mediterranean and North America and the effects of tropical revolving storms.

Yachtmaster courses are not for beginners. This eleven-day comprehensive high-level theory and practical course includes assessment papers and written examinations. Candidates are advised that a considerable amount of private study and varied cruising experience is required in addition to the formal instruction provided.

Certificate Limitations

  • Command of a vessel up to 24 meters in length
  • up to 150 miles offshore
Note: Yachtmaster Offshore is a recreational course that can be taught in any language BUT cannot be upgraded to the professional Master of Yachts certificate.
