Our courses include training in the following subjects and much much more


Culinary Training

The largest difference in a chef position on a yacht is the extensive planning required and the ability to work at sea.  Yacht chefs must do their own provisioning and preparation work for all of the courses including desert and often clean their own galley as well. (Remember cleanliness is next to godliness!) On some smaller yachts the cook may also share stewardess responsibilities, while on larger yachts the chef may have a sous chef or the services of one of the stews for prep work, serving, clearing and cleaning. Also, unlike a hotel or restaurant, a yacht’s menu should be practically unlimited with limited resources. Inventiveness is the key! An ability to produce exotic meals from ordinary ingredients and to present new and exciting dishes, avoiding repetition. The chef should also be aware of many different tastes to accommodate possible allergic, vegetarian or simply picky owners or guests. One never knows who may be dining with the owners, your guest may be an influential politician or a world famous actor / entertainer. At the same time your hardest critics could be the crew themselves, who must partake at your table every day. It cannot be said enough: present new and exciting dishes and avoid repetition.


Stewardess  and Yacht Interior Training

Currently Offered in Europe, Florida, and Australia, these Privately trained courses summarize the skills required by stewardesses including: Professional Etiquette and Social Skills, French, Russian and Buffet Table Service, Interior and Exterior Detailing, Butler Services, Valet Services, Bartending, Provisioning and Inventory, Basic First Aid, Safety Equipment, Emergency Procedures, International Customs and Protocol. Of course many shore based training facilities offer similar silver service training for those interested in interior services aboard yachts. Most Hotel and Resorts also offer their “in house education” for their staff, and this type of instruction and experience is also valuable on board a yacht.
