SisterShip Training

We have over 7o years of combined experience on the water, including oceans, and inland waterways, and working on a variety of vessels in many different countries. We’ve owned a timber boat, 3 fibreglass boats, and a steel boat (a mix of sail and power). We’ve circumnavigated the globe one and a half times and written best-selling memoirs on our adventures as well as training manuals that are well-received globally. We also love boats and we love training. Read more about us here.

Excellence Combined

Maritime Training School and SisterShip Training share the same attitudes and aspirations: to provide maritime training excellence for everyone at every level. We adapt our training to suit individual needs. We encourage participants at every stage and are proud of our ongoing support during training and thereafter in the maritime industry.
