Whatever the size of yacht, providing excellent food for both guests and crew is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for successful yacht operation.

course is designed for smaller yacht chefs and crew cooks whereas the seasoned chef course was created to convert highly trained shorebased professionals into sea going yacht chefs ready for action.
