Testimonial from an ex student who did her yacht crew silver service training with us:
“I trained with The British Yacht Academy this spring. Despite spending years in the industry, this course actually taught me new skills and gave me confidence. I learned silver service perfection and really enjoyed the real life setting on the 5 Star yacht in London. Needless to say, the course was fun and interesting and the teacher was very engaging and hands on. Uniquely, I made friends for life. One of the other girls even travelled to Antibes with me after and we now work on the same Motor Yacht. I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to start a career in Yacht interior Service and to those already working on-board. ”
