A typical day on this gap year project

The Superyacht Cadetship is a structured four year programme which allows you to earn while you learn to train for a long-term career in superyachting. Developed in close consultation with the MCA and their approved training guidelines, the cadetship course combines phases of training at UKSA with paid work placements in the superyacht industry.

It is also possible to compete a FdSc (Foundation Degree) in Operational Yacht Science during phase 1 and 3 of the Superyacht Cadetship, awarded by Plymouth University.
