How different is to manoeuvre a motor yacht than a sailing boat!
How many times we have heard this sentence after having got our PER licence doing the practical part on a sailing boat when we’ll be later using a motor yacht. Don’t resign yourself to practise on a 30HP single motor sailing yacht that hardly reaches 6 knots and with a totally different helm wheel.
Have your practise on a 42 ft yacht, with two powerful engines, where the type of manoeuvres will be similar to the ones you’ll have to perform in your yacht. Learn the particularities of using and maintaining two engines compared with the basics of hosting and striking canvas during your practical training journey that you want be regularly needing.
According to current Spanish legislation, practice is split in two days of eight hours each.
