Have a passion for sailing and a dream to work on a superyacht?
With its busy port and thriving boat culture, Nelson is a great place to gain the skills in seamanship and hospitality you need to work in the global superyacht industry.
You've probably watched 'Below deck' and wished you too could be on board a luxury yacht and dipping your toes in the Pacific, Mediterranean or Bahamas. Why not? There's a demand for crew members in this industry, so it's time to stop dreaming and get your ticket.
During this twelve-week programme, you will gain an introduction to all aspects of onboard life and a wide range of international qualifications that will prepare you for anything life as a superyacht crew member can throw at you.
As part of this programme, you will enjoy world-class learning facilities, including local charter yachts, powerboats, navigation simulators, luxury accommodation, and an on-campus restaurant and bar the Rata Room to gain professional training.
Watch to see what it is like to study Superyacht Crewing at NMIT. As part of the programme you also do fire training in the only purpose built 3 storey maritime fire fighting facility in the country.
