Finding the right marine insurance agent that is trustworthy, has your best interests at heart, and has the experience of working with expensive yachts can be like finding a needle in a haystack. United Yacht Sales has worked with Mike Boyer from Brown & Brown Insurance on behalf of many of our boat buying customers and highly recommend him as one of our strategic partners. Especially when buying a yacht in Florida, the consolidation of companies, along with active hurricane seasons, has made things more challenging for boaters. Mike can assist you in finding the best coverage at the very best rate.

Boat Safety Training Courses - At The Helm Training

boat safety courses

At The Helm Training was born out of necessity. A necessity observed by a professional USCG Master Mariner who over a 40-year period discerned that boats were getting bigger, more complex, and powerful with an increasing number of operators having little experience and understanding of safe operational procedures of THEIR vessel.

We noticed that whether we participated in a class in California or Florida they both had the lesson syllabus written on the wall. Those lessons contained the same techniques, taught in a tried-and-true sequence that formed an automatic response. At that moment we thought why not apply the same idea for a marine safety training course for boat owners on THEIR boat.

Each vessel is unique, but the basic understanding of safe vessel operations and seamanship can be adapted to any boat with our proven syllabus. At The Helm Training provides a personalized learning experience by a professional Captain or Trainer to teach a new or experienced boat owner, who wants to improve upon their skills.
