BOATS. Ultimately, that’s what it’s all about
Boats boats boats. Big ones, little ones, super ones, even mega ones. Merchant ones, dive ones, cruise ones, and don’t get too close to the battle ones.
Since Adam could swim, the world has been full of boats. Boats that you can own and take to the beach, boats that you can sail away and go around the globe. Boats that you race, and boats to save lives. Boats that need crew, captains, mates and officers, chefs and stewards, deckhands and drivers.
Boats are a passion, a past-time, a career and an obsession.
Working with boats is fun, challenging and rewarding, but it’s a competitive business especially in busy yacht hubs such as Palma de Mallorca. You need to be properly trained before you land a dream job, and even more so to keep it.
So learning how to do things well is not just about parking a rib, or coming alongside, or stowing a line. Its about your approach, where you learned, and who you’ve learned from.
Learning should be fun, we learn more when we relax.
Choosing who to train with is about the people, the price and the chemistry. Thats why we’ve pulled together an excellent team with enough experience to teach you and enough spirit to make it fun and rewarding. We have our own boats, they are pictured below, so we can deliver quality every time at a price most can afford. After all, it’s not just about the ticket, it’s also about the experience you have while achieving it.
Thats why we started Deep Blue.
Based at the lovely marina of Port Calanova, the conveniently located training centre for the Spanish Sailing Federation and their Olympic sailing teams, our modern training boats are fully coded to the highest MCA standards and with our emphasis on safety and reliability these are excellent vessels on which to build your experience and confidence. Our 2018 training fleet comprises an ultra-modern and well-equipped Beneteau Oceanis 43 named Ellie Lauren which is an excellent, spacious and comfortable sailing yacht. Our motor yacht, ‘Deep Blue’, is also berthed at Calanova and is a Fairline Phantom 46 boasting powerful twin Volvo Penta turbocharged diesel engines driving shafts/props – quiet, clean and economical by yachting standards, air-conditioned and with a great layout and equipment at both lower and flybridge helms including radar.
Our rib is a robust Avon Adventure 620 with 6 jockey seats and a powerful yet economical 4-stroke Suzuki 140hp outboard. We use Seadoo jetskis for our jetski courses, and these are available for daily rental to holders of a PWC certificate and/or ICC with PWC endorsement.
All of our boats are available for charter with our without skipper, and we offer special low rates on all rentals for students of the school.
