Have you ever dreamed of living aboard or bareboat chartering a yacht? Immerse yourself in the sailing lifestyle. Our Liveaboard Programs provide students with the ability to accomplish multiple certifications while experiencing life aboard a modern cruising yacht. All certifications, operating expenses, accommodations, and food provisions are included during your stay. Charleston provides the ideal setting for our student to relax, learn, and enjoy the sport of sailing.
Our Liveaboard courses are designed to provide a unique and memorable training experience for each student. We keep our class sizes small affording our students more attention, time at the helm, and comfort. There will be no more than 4 students aboard during the day, and only one student per cabin each night. Instructors only stay aboard during overnights at anchor, giving students privacy while docked in the marina. Each yacht will be provisioned based on your likings the first day of class and restocked periodically during your time aboard. Every cruising yacht in our fleet is equipped with heat/ac, a full galley, and all linens, pillows, blankets, towels, & common toiletries are provided. The Charleston City Marina offers a clean bathhouse, wireless internet, cable TV, and a courtesy van is available during business hours to take you into town. It is no surprise we have been consistently awarded as an “Outstanding School” by the American Sailing Association.
All of our courses are scheduled based on student demand, and custom tailored training experiences are available upon request. Feel free to call and discuss course availability and options anytime.
