Yacht Brokerage


Originally entering the market in 2009 as the Diploma in Boat Retail and Brokerage, we’ve now redeveloped this course to provide you with two additional modules (in Charter and Sales), whilst also now covering the brokerage for yachts of all sizes. With these exciting new changes set in place, we’ve now re-launched this course as the Diploma in Yacht Brokerage.

Module subjects include essential matters such as registration, title rules and regulations, yacht brokers and the law, business management and valuation along with other challenging subjects such as insurance, finance, sea trials and chartering.



The course consists of 12 modules. All students are required to successfully complete and pass the module assignments. Diploma students will also be required to sit and pass a final examination.
