Motor & Yachting

What is Cruiser Sailing?

Sailing yachts are sailing boats with accommodation. This means that you can eat and sleep on board as well as fit in loads of friends and family. Because of their size and accommodation sailing yachts offer huge flexibility. Overnight trips, whole holidays as well as competitive racing are all possible with friends and family.

What is Motor Cruising?

Motor yachts are larger motor boats with accommodation. This means that you can eat and sleep on board as well as fit in loads of friends and family. Because of their size, accommodation and speed motor yachts let you explore where you want and then stay overnight. Yet they are usually easy enough to manage with only 2 people.

Why do an ISA Training Course?

An ISA training course provides the ideal way to get afloat for the first time, or to build on skills you already have. All courses are run to a syllabus used all over Ireland and will be lead by a trained and qualified ISA Instructor. Each course is carefully designed to provide you with all of the skills and confidence you need to get you out on the water and to get the most out of your boating.

Where to do your ISA Training Course?

ISA Training Centres have all gone through a rigorous accreditation process to ensure that they provide high quality training in a safe environment. With Training Centres based in every corner of Ireland there are plenty to choose from for training close to home or while on holiday.
