Leisure and Commercial Options

There are numerous reasons to achieve your Yachtmaster Offshore so whatever your goals, we have a course for you.


For some the Yachtmaster qualification is purely for personal use and in this case the 'leisure' only version is all that is required.


However, if you would like to work as a professional yacht captan commercially in the yachting industry you will need the Professional version including the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency approved STCW Basic Safety Training package, and more. 


In all cases, whatever version you choose, as we are both UK RYA and UK MCA approved we can provide all the  training you will need in house.


p to 3 weeks extra free additional training is available at no extra cost should it be needed. Most of our Yachtmasters achieve the required level in 90 days, however if you need longer. the team here is there for you, and there is no extra charge for the additional weeks. Terms and conditions apply.

Shore Base

All the ASA Yachtmasters use the shore based facility daily when in Gibraltar during theory weeks and at the weekend, it's essential to have somewhere quiet and cool to study away from the yacht. 


The Yachts

The fleet of 5 JEANNEAU 389 Sailing yachts were brand new in 2017, are moored just 75 metres from the shore-based facility, and right in the very heart of the magnificent Ocean Village Resort in Gibraltar. This is a great place to relax during your down time.
