Alternative pathways into the superyacht industry

If you are considering a long term career on-board a superyacht and are aged between 18-25 you may want to consider our Superyacht Cadetship.


Deckhands are typically required to work long hours and must be physically fit and able. You must be energetic and enthusiastic with an ability to work to a high standard in all tasks.

All seafarers must have an ENG1 seafarer medical fitness certificate to work at sea (click here for more details).

Whilst it’s not essential to hold your ENG1 to complete your training with UKSA, it is required to hold this to secure work in the industry. For this reason, we recommend all students gain their ENG1 before they attend training.

Ezekiel Denny – UKSA Superyacht Crew Training Graduate

“I received assisted career funding from Edmiston which enabled me to embark on this new adventure. Without the financial assistance from Edmiston I would probably not have been able to follow my dreams. If you are looking for a challenge that is extremely rewarding with lots of new experiences I would highly recommend you do the Superyacht Crew Training course.”
