One of the most popularly requested toys on superyacht charters is the Jetski. It’s simple to operate and offers an easy adrenalin rush. However, as with all watersports there is an element of danger and parents can be forgiven for being nervous about letting the kids rush out into the open sea – at speed!
Maritime authorities worldwide are also increasingly insistent that anyone operating a Jetski must hold a license or be accompanied by an instructor. This has become standard in most Mediterranean waters.
To allow guests to enjoy the toys onboard safely and legally therefore, several yachts are now certified as RYA approved licensing schools for Personal Watercraft (Jetskis, Waverunners). These luxury charter yachts employ full-time, Personal Watercraft instructors who are qualified to teach guests during the charter with the aim of students achieving an internationally recognised license.
