RYA Day Skipper Motor

A perfect course if you wish to skipper a motor yacht with friends and family, or use commercially up to 20nm offshore and in daylight. During your time with us you will learn how to safely handle our 15m Prestige motor yacht, complete with her two Volvo Penta 480 hp turbocharged engines.

You may be: an experienced skipper already and want to make sure that you know the latest techniques; or new to motor boating and wish to make sure that your family are safe when you charter your first boat.

Power Yachtmaster on Passage

Over the five days we will: take your navigational knowledge and enable you to plan a safe passage to anchorages, other marinas and harbours; teach you about the safety equipment, ensure that you know how to check the engines and other boat systems – thus ensuring that you can spend the maximum time out enjoying the sea once you have completed the course.

We have a perfect location within Gibraltar: our office, training room and crew rooms are minutes from Gibraltar airport; and once at sea we have the busy shipping within the bay, and are close to marinas in Spain and Morocco to give you a depth of experience.

Previous Experience required:

For this course you are required to have your Day Skipper Theory; if you do not already have this then you may prefer to add the weekends before and after your course to enable you to join our Express Day Skipper Theory navigation days, this will add £400 to your booking for the four days tuition. This is called an Express Day Skipper Motor course since it includes both the theory and the practical over a total of nine days.  Or you can choose to study at home before you join us with our Online Day Skipper theory course. Come as an individual or with friends or family.


1800 Sunday until 1600 Friday

Course Dates:

We offer our Day Skipper Motor throughout the year. With lots of flights to Gibraltar airport, only 5 minutes away from our offices, and only a short distance from Malaga, we ask you to join us on the Sunday evening so you will have time to relax before the course starts on the Monday morning.

What’s Included:

The first question we are always asked “is fuel included” and the answer is a definite yes, together with mooring fees – so no large bills at the end of your week. We also include a light lunch for each day at sea and you can then relax in the evenings ashore and sample the local quayside restaurants. Accommodation may be possible if required. During this course you will cover 100nm and a night entry exercise for night hours, you will also be skipper for at least one day.
