Sean has current professional knowledge, proven teaching skill and unrivalled exam pass rates.

The greatest gift to any teacher is a willing student; someone who wants to learn, and the commercial yachting world is a professional arena in which the vast majority of its people are hungry for success, eager and determined. So, come on then – let’s go!!

Sean spends half the year, usually September through to May, instructing for the largest (and, in his view, the best) MCA Approved training/examination provider to yachtsmen and women. With offices and schools in Antibes/Biot and Palma, Mallorca, Sean focuses on the full Masters programme of courses.

Of all these, Sean is perhaps best known for ‘ORAL PREP’ for which he has an unequalled success rate, typically around 92%.

For all the subjects above, Sean offers bespoke 1 to 1 tutorials, or 1:2 depending on the circumstances.


Monday – Friday: Evening tutorials usually 17:30 – 19:30
Weekends: By agreement


Instruction is from 09:00 until 17:00 daily, and high quality self-catering accommodation is provided.


I can also come to you – in addition to my tutorial fee, the student/yacht budget covers expenses (eg. food, travel & accommodation).
