Bluewater has created a scholarship programme to give funding to four crew members. The application process is now open, with a deadline of 1st October 2021.
Bluewater is the only major yachting company with dedicated and experienced teams in the five main sectors of yachting; yacht sales and purchase, yacht charter, yacht management, crew training and crew solutions. Bluewater prides itself on being the only company able to sell, charter and manage yachts while also being able to train and support the crew needed to run them.
The courses will fund two engineers and two deck candidates, to achieve their MCA OOW certificate or Small Vessels EOOW, the old Y4. Candidates applying for the deck positions must have an in-date STCW, a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster Offshore certificate, and two recommendations from captains or a head of department.
Candidates interested in the engineering opportunities must also provide an AEC2 certificate, an in-date STCW and two recommendations from either captains or a head of department. Training schools are located in Palma, Antibes and Fort Lauderdale.
John Wyborn, training director at Bluewater, said, “After a very tough couple of years I am delighted to report that Bluewater has not only weathered the pandemic storm but has come out fighting fit and bursting with new ideas. The scholarship programme is a fitting way of marking our 30 years as a true industry leader.”
