Taking the Yachtmaster Offshore or Coastal Exams

The exam can be very stressful and having good preparation with an expert instructor will help you lots to get through the exam. Whilst the examiner is independent we know the standards required and you will practice your Yachtmaster theory knowledge, skippering skills like safety briefings and crew management, boat handling skills with some night navigation are all practiced during the preparation. .

Prior Knowledge and Experience required

Students taking the Yachtmaster Exam need to hold a VHF/SRC operators certificate and a valid first aid certificate, and have the relevant miles and skippering experience including night pilotage. The minimum sea time required as a guide for Coastal is 20 days, 2 days as skipper, 400 miles, 12 night hours. For Offshore this is 50 days, 5 days as skipper, 2500 miles, 12 night hour. All qualifying sea time must be within 10 years prior to the exam. You are strongly advised to complete the Yachtmaster theory too.
