James Brooke Academy to take delivery of two Sunseekers for owner training

New Sunseekers to be Academy Training boats in Lymington

08 December 2016

The James Brooke Sunseeker Academy, based at Lymington Yacht Haven, will take delivery of a new Sunseeker Manhattan 52 and a Sunseeker 86 Yacht which will become flagship training boats.

Based on the UK’s south coast at Lymington Yacht Haven, 2016 Marina of the Year, the James Brooke Academy offers a unique style of training for prospective owners to experience the quality of craftsmanship and performance of these exceptional boats whilst learning about navigation, seamanship and boat handling

With over twenty years of experience as a Yachtmaster Instructor, former Royal Marine and RNLI Lifeboat crewman, James Brooke launched the Academy in partnership with the Sunseeker London Group to provide support for new owners and to give customers an opportunity to experience training of the highest quality before making a purchase.

James Brooke comments “Boating has been a passion all my life, and I feel privileged to be working with the Sunseeker London Group to provide a range of training packages for customers, from the fine art of boat handling in marinas to passage planning and offshore navigation. Based on the Solent we have a perfect location to learn about tides, harbour approaches and how to find a nice anchorage for lunch!”

Courses lead to MCA/RYA qualifications and include the ICC (International Certificate of Competence).
