The Ultimate Yacht Purser Course

Trilogy Luxury Training is proud to collaborate with The Yacht Purser and bring you the ultimate Yacht Purser Course.

Sandra Jordaan is a career coach to many aspiring Pursers in the yachting industry, she found that there was a need to create a theoretical and practical Yacht Purser Course that would ensure that first-time Pursers have the skills and experience they need to land their first Purser role. The largest barrier to entry into the Purser role is that Captains do not want to ‘babysit’ new Pursers or risk that someone does not have the right skills to perform their duties to a high level.

The Purser is integral to the smooth operation of the vessel from both a logistical and operational aspect. It is imperative that crew who have never held this position understand the complexities involved in this challenging yet highly rewarding career. The assignments have been created to ensure that the course is not a long ‘to-do’ list but rather engages the student in a way that they would be on-board.

If you would like more information on this course or how you can sign up, head over to our consultation page and one of our friendly trainers will contact you.
