Our two-week Yachtmaster Power Theory and Practical is an all-inclusive course combining the Yachtmaster Theory and the practical prep week.

This course is popular with experienced Superyacht Deckhands, crew from the commercial maritime sector, or those with RYA Yachtmaster sail looking to convert to Yachtmaster Power.

The advantage of the combined theory and practical course is the navigation is fresh in your memory, and you have all your notes to refer back to. The added advantage of being in a group is that everybody studies for the same goal, we find that customers help and encourage each other and learn a lot more than if studying at home.

The RYA Yachtmaster qualification

The RYA Yachtmaster Offshore Power Certificate of Competence allows the holder to skipper of a motorboat up to 24 meters in length, 150 miles from a safe haven. Add STCW Basic Safety Training, and you have a qualification to skipper a motorboat up to 200GT, which may be more than 24 meters.

The Yachtmaster Exam

The Yachtmaster exam is conducted by an RYA examiner independent of Flying Fish. Your instructor will not be onboard for the duration of the exam. The RYA examiner will look at all areas of the Yachtmaster syllabus and assess each candidate’s practical and navigational skills. Your examiner will complete a report form detailing skills covered during the exam. 

The Yachtmaster exam will take between 24 and 36 hours to complete.

The Solent offers a great training ground with numerous ports, strong tides, and lots of traffic. Training in the Solent will improve your knowledge of skippering a small motorboat. 

Flying Fish is based in Cowes, in the middle of the Solent therefore, we can operate in almost any weather conditions.

There are a maximum of four candidates on this course.

What our previous students have to say

I recently completed my training with flying fish. From booking the course all the way through to receiving my certificates the team made it an effortless process and were always on hand to help.


I completed the Superyacht Deckhand course with Flying Fish in January 2023 and I highly recommend anyone interested in starting a career in yachting do their training with Flying Fish.
