UKSA is pleased to announce a new strategic partnership with leading superyacht insurance company Sturge Taylor. The new partnership will provide a platform for the development of professional crew training across the superyacht sector and will also help skills training and placement opportunities for new yacht crew.

UKSA has been providing professional yacht training across a range of disciplines for over 20 years and it is hoped that this new partnership will further strengthen UKSA’s position as leading crew trainer within the maritime sector. As part of the partnership, Sturge Taylor will invest time and resources into sponsorship and development of the UKSA Superyacht Cadetship scheme.

Matt Buley at Sturge Taylor Ltd, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with UKSA in furthering the development of professional yacht crew training and believe it complements our corporate social responsibility in helping future generations of yacht crew.”

Emma Baggett, UKSA Cadetship Manager, said: “UKSA welcomes the opportunity to work with pro-active corporate partners such as Sturge Taylor. This is a hugely exciting initiative and we are really looking forward to seeing our cadets benefit from this unique partnership.”
