SMA Skipper PLUS charter training

An efficient way to increase your competencies on what to focus on when taking over a charter yacht.

Handle this yacht and crew in all kinds of challenges with skilled confidence and react appropriately in a MOB emergency - what actions must be taken to get back to the person in the water, how to get the person back up on board and tackle the challenges the casualty may face once on deck.

Dedicated 2-days training weekends on board a 33’ yacht on Lake Zurich. Precise preparation for your next yacht charter without investing travel expenses and vacation time!
