la belle classe

La Belle Classe Academy, Yacht Club of Monaco’s (YCM) training centre, is organising the second edition of the Yachting Masterclass which starts 19th February 2022. 

Conducted in English with lessons taking place twice a week, the intensive 10-week course offers a 360-degree view of yachting.

“The aim is to professionalise those involved in the industry by providing top-quality, accessible educational tools and resources and is part of the Monaco Capital of Yachting approach initiated by Yacht Club de Monaco,” said the YCM in a statement. “The aim is to encourage development and promotion of sea-related professions in Monaco and affirm the Principality as a centre of excellence.”

For this Yachting Masterclass, top experts from across the industry are coming to share their experience and expertise, including in particular interventions by representatives from Oceanco, Feadship and many more from across the entire supply chain of the yachting industry. “From superyacht design to yacht aviation, yacht and luxury marketing, insurance, classification, management, sales, sustainability, agents, yacht charter, family offices and more, all these topics are covered to give a comprehensive overview of this ecosystem.”

The Yachting Masterclass is dedicated to anyone who wants to gain a full understanding of this sometimes little-known industry.

“Those who have already signed up for our Yachting Masterclass include captains, industry professionals, yacht builders and aviation specialists from all around the world. If you want to invest in your professional development, you will leave the course with the equivalent of a Masters in yachting,” said Marcela de Kern Royer, organiser of the course. “Participants who complete the whole course will receive a diploma awarded by La Belle Classe Academy, confirming the candidate’s serious approach and diligence throughout the course, a real competitive advantage in the job market.”

The course is also available to do online, with the option to enrol for specific individual modules.
