Yachts for RYA Courses

Yachts for RYA Courses

You are most likely to be on board "Majosa" -our 40ft Jeanneau sailing yacht - or "Thunderbolt" - our 40ft Bavaria Sailing Yacht. Both these yachts offer a high standard of accommodation and are well equipped for sail training purposes. 

They both adhere to RYA and MCA coding standards and are ideal for those learning to sail. If either of these vessels are not available for your course, a similar high standard vessel will be used.


Majosa is named after her owner's daughters Mary, Jo, and Sarah. She is an extremely well equipped yacht, has accommodation for 9 crew, 3 cabins, two heads (that's bathrooms on a boat), an excellent galley and a great table for chart work and doing homework!
