Yacht and Boat Building

Yacht and Boat Building

The dream of anyone with an interest in the sea is to ultimately build their own boat. Trans-oceanic sailor Jimmy Cornell once wrote,
“The planning stage of a cruise is often just as enjoyable as the voyage itself, letting one’s imagination loose on all kinds of possibilities. Yet translating dreams into reality means a lot of practical questions have to be answered.”

The Yacht and Boat Building training courses are constructed to guide those dreams to fruition and further educate you on the intricacies involved with building your own boat. Incorporating aspects of the decision-making, management and construction processes, you can be a step closer to achieving your dreams of building your own vessel.

“Whenever your preparations for the sea are poor; the sea worms its way in and finds the problems” – Francis Stokes.

With easy to follow steps, we will provide you with knowledge to differenciate between various boat building materials, and highlight the various skills that are paramount to the successful construction of your boat.

These courses are not intended to be the solitary element in the building of your boat but rather best utilised as an general guide as to what steps you need to take in order to pursue your ambition. Therefore, we would recommend that these courses would be most effective in conjunction with each other and with further knowledge and experience in building your own boat.
