Who is Super Yachting South Africa?

Welcome to the exciting and luxurious World of Super Yachting. This career offers you the opportunity to be employed as crew members on board these exquisite multi-million Dollar Vessels. Hard work, the right qualifications, and a “can-do” attitude are essential prerequisites to meet the extremely high Service and Maritime Standards expected in this Industry.

Some of the numerous benefits include: travelling to the world’s most luxurious and exotic locations, earning foreign currency, while meeting some of the most famous and influential people in the world. Furthermore, the professional approach adopted within the Super Yachting Industry has created numerous possibilities for career advancement and opportunities for employment after yachting.

The Super Yacht industry is rapidly growing, resulting in a substantial increase in the amount of yachts being produced annually, a trend that has been continuing for the past 10 years. The latest statistics indicated from yacht builders worldwide, show an increase of 11% over the past year (for vessels over 24 meters). Simply put: If these new boats were lined up, it would extend for over 24 miles (39 kilometers)! This increase has created thousands of new jobs, and as a result, there is a shortage of qualified crew at all levels.

In this industry, the attention to detail, focus and professionalism of crew, are unparalleled to any other Maritime or sea-going working environment. Our motto at SYSA is simple… “PROFESSIONALS, COMMITTED TO EXCELLENCE”.  We offer advice, training and guidance to aspiring new crew to achieve this standard.

We started the school in 2008 and through continuous research, some of our instructors still working on board yachts as freelance crew, attending Yacht Trade Shows overseas, we are able to provide the best and latest information possible on how to succeed and advance in the world of Super Yachting!  We only employ former and current super yacht experts as Instructors.

Our guarantee to you:

All our Instructors worked in the Super Yacht Industry for many years in the most senior positions on board and our information is up-to-date and applicable and will prepare you for a career in this highly competitive industry.
