What Our Students Say

“I have been on a Superyacht for six months and I absolutely love it! The crew is great and the owners are wonderful. We left Florida two weeks ago and we are on a three month trip over to California! We made a stop in Cuba and the owners invited all of the crew to go on day trips with the guests to sight see! Now we are in the Cayman Islands. From here we head through the Panama Canal and then we go to Panama City, Papagallo Peninsula Costa Rica then Cabo San Lucas, before we end up to Southern California. This is such a great experience for me. I do stewardess work, cook for crew and guests, handle lines when docking and leaving as well as watch shifts while we’re underway. I just wanted to say thanks again for all the valuable training I received in my classes! Thank you!”

Jessica Benway – Stewardess

“I am so excited!!! I went for my first interview yesterday afternoon at an agency and got a call from them later on advising that they’d put me forward for a 2nd stewardess position and to expect a call from the captain. He rang this morning and we met at Starbucks and… they are flying me up on Friday! It’s happened so fast, but it felt right. The yacht is currently in Norfolk, Virginia and we will be heading out very soon to spend the season in New England. The captain was really laid back and very forthcoming. Apparently the yacht is privately owned by a wealthy guy (obviously) and isn’t chartered out very often. Mostly they do cocktail parties. He thinks we will be in the Mediterranean next year although he is waiting on confirmation from the owner. The pace on the yacht seems very relaxed. It will be a great place for me to learn as much as possible. I am so keen to get started. Thank you!”

Carlie – Stewardess

“Everything is going GREAT for me over here! We have travelled from Fort Lauderdale all the way along the East Coast up to Labrador, Canada over 4000 miles so far. My roster is split so I spend the first part of the day as a deckhand and the second part of the day as the second stewardess onboard a 154 foot SuperYacht. The owners are fantastic. I really enjoyed the interior crew course and feel so much more prepared for my stewardess role.”

Katie Ford – Stewardess and Deckhand

“I was totally impressed by the STCW training I received at the Superyacht Crew Academy. The instructors were excellent, the equipment top notch, and I truly feel confident that I would perform well in the case of an emergency aboard ship. Thank you Chris and Deb for being so helpful to me. As a foreign student coming to Australia for this training, your kindness was extra meaningful. I am now a Superyacht Agent in Noumea and spend a lot of time aboard superyachts. Even though I am not a member of the crews, my STCW training is right there in the back of my mind just in case there was an emergency; especially when refuelling, helping resupply the medical equipment or moving heavy equipment on and off the superyachts.”

Chloe Morin – Super yacht Agent Noumea Ocean Services

“You are by far the most professional and successful training facility that I have dealt with around the world. Keep up the amazing work!”

Nick Smith – Chief Officer M/Y Akula

“A big thank you for your professionalism to all people from the Superyacht Crew Academy. Your team really made this experience unforgettable.”

Laurent Dreyer – Fastrack Graduate

“My experience with Superyacht Crew Academy was amazing. I had a fantastic time on the deck crew course and learnt a lot more than I expected.”

Tom Armstrong – Deckhand

“In my first interview I got offered a job! I really liked the chief stewardess so I am on a 43m private Superyacht for the season. I have been on the boat for two weeks and so far all is going well. I am looking forward to a good season and I will be home for Christmas. Two other people who did the course with me, Emily and Adam also got jobs very easily! Thank you again for all of your support and giving us a great head start!”

Ashtyn Leary – Stewardess

“The instructors were excellent, very professional and thorough. My training at Superyacht Crew Academy made my job as stewardess aboard the Tango possible and enjoyable. It really helps to have the inside story from experts before you begin. I’m happy to recommend the Superyacht Crew Academy to anyone interested in working in this industry.”

Haley – Stewardess M/Y Tango

“I just wanted to say thank you to the staff at Superyacht Crew Academy. I am currently working on a 43m M/Y Eclipse which is situated in Israel during the winter and the Mediterranean in the summer. I am heading into my third week here, now crossing to Genoa, Italy for the boat show. I am a 3rd stewardess and loving it. We are now in Kotor in Montenegro near Croatia and it is absolutely stunning. I am loving my job and have been lucky enough to rotate with duties and will be doing service this week, in a few hours actually. Thank you for all your help!”

Lauren A – Stewardess

” I thought I would give you a quick update on my adventures. I’ve just finished a cruise on an expedition vessel and am back in Antibes looking for a new position as a stewardess. Thank you for the casual work experience I did while completing my interior course. It’s definitely a lot better now that I have the right qualifications and some experience. I’m finding that there is so much more available to me.”

Natasha Harris – Stewardess

“Thank you for all the help and support that you gave me when i was studying with you. it was amazing and I will no doubt be visiting again hopefully at the end of next year when I come to do my Yacht Master OffShore. The Boat has offered me an awesome opportunity to learn all there is to learn as well as an awesome salary, benefits, and program. Not to mention the crew are a happy bunch of people and we are like a large family…. I have learned that the crew makes the boat and that is the main thing, not the salary, benefits or program!”

Joshua McCouat – Deckhand

Certified Superyacht Academy is a wonderful academy, Jessica is who I dealt with and she was extremely helpful, as well as quick to respond. The course availability was by far the best out of the companies I dealt with and the course was very well structured and fun. This course gave me a lot of insight into the yachting world and I feel gave me a head start in terms of mentality to the rest of the 'greenies'. Overall great impression!

I have enrolled for the STCW-2010 Course with Certified Superyacht Academy in January 2023, wow what an experience & very good training. Thank you to Jessica Sandell for her every time on time communication & feedback regarding the course details & any other relevant information during the course application. The Facilitators that conducted the training was well prepared & very good SME's they really have a passion & a lot of knowledge for what they teach us, I am a Facilitator (Health & Safety) myself & it was a very good experience to see different facilitation methods & the passion the people do it with. After the course I can apply for a job on the ships with a lot of confidence & I know who I can contact if I get stuck. Thank you also for the well prepared venue, also providing lunch facilities, it was very tasty & affordable with a lot of very friendly staff. Pulse Training where the First Aid & Fire Fighting Training was conducted was a very good & pleasant experience, the facilitators was very well prepared & also have a passion in what they do, but most of all they all made sure that we were kept safe during the course at all times. No pressure in any way, just a lot of support & help the whole time making sure that we understand 100% before putting us to the test. I will definitely recommend these training providers to family & friends. Keep up the good work & Friendliness always. Aletta Williams

This has been the most life changing experience I have ever experienced, to see the future I want for myself right in front of my eyes. The instructor's are educated in explaining the work and are able to go into depth to help you understand what is being asked of you, I had two separate instructor's for my Day Skipper with RYA & my MCA Yacht Rating with PYT, I struggled to grasp the concept of what I needed to do but with their patience & guidance I was able to overcome my difficulties & receive my certification they were patient & open to all questions.The program plan I chose also offers certifications that other academy's did not which gives you a extra tick or two on your CV which can make all the difference. The organizers are very helpful with regards to rescheduling or providing directions to the courses , as I'm not from Cape Town I had to send in a few emails to find where about I need to be & was helped everytime making it on time. One thing that also stuck with me was a quote which reads, " Early is on time , On time is late & Late is fired." You also have a chance to meet new people from all over the world creating bonds for life & could possibly open doors for you to travel through. Some people were experienced seafarers just refreshing an expired license mixed in with us greenies, giving the opportunity to be up-to-date with the industry. Most of the courses are a lot of theory which can be overwhelming regarding terminology but as long as you read through the pre-course study notes the work can be completed. Chart work is something I also thought I would love but I've learnt it's a love / hate relationship at first after a lot of man hours though I can say it is a very interesting subject, I would have liked to learn more line work but I did some self studying & learnt a few new knots. The most important part of the entire course though is not what you are learning or who is teaching it to you , your attitude towards the lessons & instructor's makes all the difference & quite simply so . A negative attitude helps no one including yourself as class mates can become frustrated & instructor's will not waste their or the other learners time on you , teamwork makes the crew work. The jetski course was very fun but the overall best experience was my tender ops being on the water at night , disappearing between the swells out on the open water was a feeling that can only be understood by experiencing the moment first hand. You also learn the importance of having good crew members or bad members, as you are a team if one is not doing their given tasks it can become a rather stressful ride . Our instructor that day was great to learn from, calling your mistakes out in order to instantly correct you & make sure you know the correct procedure to follow. I would like to thank everyone at Certified Superyacht Academy & the other Academy's that helped me overcome all challenges & taking a step towards my future career, I plan to bring my brother in a few years when he turns sixteen to get a head start on his certifications my only regret is that I never started sooner . Also to further develop my skills & work my way through the ranks. "When boats were made of Wood, men were made of Steel & soft seas never made for a good sailor."

I had completed my Stewardess course at Stewardess Co. with Maxine Oakley who was a wonderful instructor and taught me so much about the precision of how to get each and every job that comes with being a stewardess done. I have completed my STCW course at STC.SA where not only did I meet some of the best people, but learnt so much about the importance of the safety and dangers that can come with working on a vessel. The knowledge I gained from the courses will never be forgotten.

These guys have been so amazing, they make each and every student feel like they have a personal connection, most don’t really get to meet Jessica and Daniel but I had the opportunity to meet with them and even in person they make you feel so comfortable as if they have known you for ages. They reply to emails in amazingly speedy time, I honestly have no idea how they do it but they run an amazingly tight ship. Well done to the company and well done to Jessica and Daniel for they made this experience really awesome. I actually want to do the course again just to be treated so well. Hahaha

Daniel has been my go to man and deals with me professionally and doesn't miss anything . Some of the courses are a little over priced but there are limited and are only run in CPT and Durban . So it's a bit of a monopoly. Daniel is great to work with and communication is key. Recommended for any greenies .

Deckhand and Yacht Steward(ess) Training Courses in Fort Lauderdale

We offer extensive and specialist courses for deckhands and interior crew that would like to gain practical experience and knowledge to boost their employability and ability to build a successful career. These courses are suitable for both new and experienced crew who would like to excel on board a superyacht.

Yacht Training Courses available:

10 Day Yacht Steward(ess) Academy 8 Week Yacht Deckhand Academy 12 Day Yacht Tender Handling Academy

10 Day Steward(ess) Academy

This is an opportunity to gain extensive practical experience in all important interior duties. Our 10 000 sq ft training facility allows us to simulate real onboard duties under supervision by a chief stewardess with over 15 years of superyachting experience.

The course is designed for students who would like to gain real proficiency in their duties as opposed to being introduced to them during more traditional 3-5 day introductory courses.

Basic deck work practicals will be covered as well so that you are able to help during docking procedures and other deck department activities. This is a great opportunity to broaden your skillset and become an asset to all departments.

By completing the 10 day steward(ess) academy, candidates will have real practical experience usually only attained “on the job”. You will have references from captains and heads of departments, stating your capabilities . We do provide job assistance through our network to candidates who show competence and a strong work ethic.

8-Week Deckhand Academy

Whether you are a new or experienced deckhand, completion of this course will allow you to take on more responsibility, impress your captain and increase the speed at which your career will progress.

It will allow you to build a significant advantage over other deck crew through decades of knowledge and experience, passed down by our captains, experienced deck crew, and specialist industry professionals. This is a unique opportunity to gain extensive knowledge and practical experience in tasks that can take years to become competent at, without a training program such as this.

Included in the academy are extensive line handling practicals, 10 days of practical tender handling, professional product training, polishing, paint & varnish application, theory, splicing, knots, and much much more.

12-Day Tender Handling Academy

When you obtain your driver’s license to drive a car, you are not ready to become a chauffeur for high-profile clients. The same applies to your Powerboat II or Rib Master license. A great deal of time behind the helm is required before driving with guests on board (especially on larger tenders).

The opportunities to gain the experience required can result in a long & drawn-out learning curve that can take years, especially on larger yachts, due to the increased number of deck crew.

We have designed our Tender Handling Academy to directly meet the standard required by the luxury yachting industry. It is a unique opportunity to gain confidence and competence so that you can take on more responsibility, open up additional job opportunities and ultimately progress at a much faster rate.

With 2 days of theory and 10 days of practical training behind the helm, you will be ready to take charge of this highly competitive position.

Gain an advantage over other crew and enroll today.

superyacht training academy reviews

This school was the best investment for my yachting career. Irma is extremely thorough, and am so thankful for her. When I got my first job, my Chief stewardess was impressed that I already knew everything she was showing me. It was thanks to Irma. She did such an amazing job of helping me feel prepared. Not only was she my teacher, but she also is still a friend even after I’ve finished the course. She always texts to see how I’m doing. Anyway, thank you so much Savy!!!!!

Honestly amazing

I did the 8week deckhand course and the time they put into this makes a world of difference! The skills and everything I learned there I am confident to join a yacht, drive a tender, and help out with some repairs!! I joined the industry a year ago and wish I did this academy first. Everyone cares so much and more then willing to go the extra mile for you. I had Nick and Doug as my teachers and they were amazing and found all kinds of different ways to explain anything asked to make sure you would understand it. I had a great experience and would 100% recommended!!!!!

Wow! So impressed!

I am beyond impressed with Savvy Maritime Academy! I left this academy with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to begin my yachting career. Irma is an exceptional instructor full of enthusiasm and motivation to help others be successful. With many years of yachting under her belt, she is extremely knowledgeable and resourceful. Brian takes the time to get to know every student who comes to train and his passion and effort to make every person succeed is very apparent and refreshing. I’m just blown away with the amount of support and knowledge they provided me during my training. The hands-on approach, in-depth practical training helped me jump in to my first job with confidence. My first day of working, I was asked to do some skills I learned in the academy that I was so excited to come in and practice right away!

I highly recommend Savvy Maritime Academy a thousand times over! I really enjoyed my experience and getting to know the instructors in my training. I can’t imagine not having done this course prior to working in the yachting industry! A MASSIVE THANK YOU!

10 day stewards course

I love this Academy. Irma the class instructor is very knowledgeable about the LUXURY yachting industry. Their hands on approach to theory and practically training makes it easy to transition into yachting. They help boost your confidence, which helps you execute your skills at a high level. I have learnt so much in those 10 days about yachting, life lessons and the industry. Brian is also an amazing individual with his dream of bring kindness and courtesy to yachting. Teaching us that showing politeness in one’s attitude and behavior toward yachting is most important. Overall the entire staff at Savvy Maritime Academy are warm professional, knowledgeable and ready to serve you. I will definitely recommend this institute for anyone want to learn the correct way of yachting!

Thank you Savvy!

I’d done the 2 weeks course with Irma, Nick & Brian. My experience was awesome. I’ve learned so much from all of them. Irma is an exceptional High end service teacher. After over 20 years working in the industry she has a lot of knowledge and shares it with love. I’ve even had fun learning how to proper make a bed! Haha

I highly recommend this courses. Not only for the industry. You can use it for many other things. You would learn a lot, even people skills. I promise.

Thank you Savvy! With love, Sol (Argentina)

Best Maritime Academy Around!

I completed the 10 Day Interior course in April at The Savvy Marine Academy. This course is extremley thorough and takes you through every practical detail that you need to know, to confidently get started in the yachting industry.

Working closely with Brian, Irma and Nick, with combined years of experience, is what makes the difference to just understanding the basics, but rather becoming an excellent asset, and confident asset to this industry. Everything taught was done with immense passion and high standards.

I truly feel blessed to have shared this experience and wealth of knowledge from such a driven team.

Couldn’t recommend this Academy enough…

Thank you Savvy! Much Love, Shannon


Best Yacht Training Ever!

So where do I begin? I can’t thank SAVVY Maritime Academy enough for this unforgettable experience. I learned so much from the team. They are so interactive and fun. They will fill you with their own practical learning and stories and they look forward to sharing their passion with you all. I’ve learned the standards of interior skills that usually take years of experience to master. SAVVY made me realize that I am not alone and that anyone has the potential to be a Yachty and fulfill their dream job. With the right training, you will have confidence in whatever the yachting industry throws at you. I have honestly had the best time learning with them. I have made friends and the whole experience has had a huge impact on me, and I am so inspired to start my own adventure in the yachting industry.
