Warsash Superyacht Academy (WSA) and Da Gama Maritime (DGM) have announced a new partnership agreement with each other to enhance the training services they offer in support of the superyacht sector.
Da Gama Maritime is run by experienced mariners at the forefront of advancements in navigation management and vessel safety who recognise the significant undertaking required by crew to meet and maintain compliance with all current and expected legislation.
The company supports professional mariners in the safety of navigation by maintaining compliant navigation outfits and training crew on board in fire fighting drills, procedures and exercises.
Steve Monk, Managing Director, said, “This company was established to enhance the safety of those who work at sea through the highest professional standards in navigation and fire fighting. We are therefore delighted to have been recognised for these skills by WSA and to now collaborate with the Academy as their business partner.”
Lars Lippuner, Business Development Manager for WSA, said, “We have always had a tremendous respect for Steve’s work especially in the area of on board fire training. Mandatory safety training is only small element of developing the necessary skills for crew to run a safe and efficient yacht at the highest levels. In our opinion on board training that involves exercises with the entire crew is invaluable.”
Da Gama Maritime and Warsash Superyacht Academy are both training partners of the Nautical Academy at MB’92 in Barcelona
