Superyacht Consultancy Services

RYA Jet Ski Licence Setup

In 2007 the RYA introduced a basic Personal Watercraft Safety Course to be delivered onboard superyachts. The aim was to be able to certify guests using the jet skis onboard the yachts. There are currently over 400 yachts signed up to the scheme.

To deliver this training, the Captain / Chief Officer or Deck Crew of the superyacht will need to train as (or employ) a RYA Jet Ski (PWC) Instructor and apply for the yacht to be recognised as an RYA Training Centre. This will require the yacht to have an inspection under the lines of the RYA requirements.

Jetski Safaris offers a complete package which aims to bring any yacht and crew using jet skis (Personal Watercaft) up to regulated and recognised industry standards. Within this service we will assist with liaising with the RYA, producing a vessel specific RYA PWC standard operations manual, assist in the purchase of the right training equipment required to become a recognised centre and help prepare for RYA Inspection. Alongside our onboard training this is a hassle free complete package.


Setting up as a Superyacht Jet Ski Licence Training Centre

With the increase in jet ski regulations worldwide and more specifically in the Mediterranean, the ability to train and certify Crew, Owners and Guests onboard has aided the safe running of jet ski operations onboard and reduced conflict with maritime authorities. 

When successfully setup Superyachts are able to run the RYA Introduction to PWC Safety Course which takes approximately 1 hour and certifies guests for the duration of their charter. The certificates are widely recognised and have a range of languages on the back for quick interpretation by the authorities.  

To become a RYA Training Centre a vessel specific RYA PWC Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and safety manual will need to be produced. Whilst putting this document together can be done by senior crew, many yachts will choose to outsource this process to ourselves to save time and make sure they have a compatible document ready for they RYA Inspection.  

We have staff which are very familiar with this process, consulting with the yacht and efficiently running through the below process.

We have produced a pdf document which runs through all the the steps in the process of gaining RYA recognition for your vessel.

The benefits of setting a Superyacht up as a Jet Ski Licence Training Centre

 – Setting a precedent for safe jet ski operations from either a private or charter vessel.

– Ability to certify crew, owners and guests in the safe use of the jet skis.

Jet Ski and Flyboard Consultancy and Training Complete Package

The training given by Jetski Safaris / Aquatic Jetpacks was a very complete and end to end package with a very detailed technical set up session followed by a theory and safety session before moving on to the practical side of how to use the equipment and how to train others to do so.

They also offer a tailor made and yacht/centre specific operations manual as an addition which Is highly detailed and very worthwhile. I highly and sincerely recommend Ross and Aquatic Jetpacks for all equipment and training needs and look forward to having him aboard Talisman C again in the future.
