Yachtmaster Coastal (Power or Sail)

It is a comprehensive live aboard course consisting of 6 days for sail or 5 days for power which includes the practical on water examination.

It has come to our attention that it has not been made perfectly clear to all IYT Worldwide yachtmaster candidates that this certification is for recreational use only and may never be upgraded to a professional certificate. Therefore, we require all candidates taking a recreational IYT Worldwide Yachtmaster Coastal to complete an acknowledgement prior to taking the course which will be submitted to IYT Worldwide before we release certificates.
