Investing in our fleet with four new Jeanneau 449s for 2019
During 2017/18, we undertook a strategic review of our yachting programme, aligning it to our vision of ‘widening access to maritime training, enhancing life skills and employment within the sector’. The outcome was a decision to invest in a matched fleet to support our ongoing mission to deliver excellence in maritime training.
We settled on the Jeanneau 449’s for the following reasons:
- It offers great flexibility for accommodating mixed-gender crews
- Reduces issues with taking under 18’s as there is a berth for each individual
- This yacht offers greater teaching and living space in the cockpit and saloon areas, a feature that skippers and students prefer.
- The 449 offers a superior sailing performance.
Yachts have now been delivered and are being used throughout our career training programmes.Find out more
