Offshore Skipper – ISSA Motor Yacht Course

From: ฿140,000

The ISSA Offshore Skipper for Motor Yachts is a 14 day course that seeks to bring an inshore skipper to an Offshore Skipper standard. The ISSA M/Y Offshore Skipper Certificate is a course aimed at candidates who have completed the ISSA Inshore skipper  Motor Yacht course and have about 800NM logged. The recommended duration of the course is 10-14 days to attain the knowledge and skill to be an Offshore Skipper.

An Offshore Skipper is a good navigator and quite an experienced skipper who wants ultimately to become a Yachtmaster Offshore Skipper, (a very experienced Motor Yacht Sailor).

In essence its the course to train Yachtmaster Offshores, in say, two or three further years.
