4.8 Average rating: Read reviews

Allabroad Maritime Training is both an MCA Accredited Course provider since 2008 and a RYA Training Centre for Sail, Motor and Power boating since 2000. With 17 years of training individuals for careers at sea you are in professional hands. Based in Gibraltar, a British Overseas Territory at the entrance to the Mediterranean, we are strategically placed for crew change and bunkering supplies for all types of vessels entering and leaving the Mediterranean. Our RYA Sailing fleet consists of five brand new Jeanneau 389 sailing yachts and we use our own Jeanneau Prestige 46 motor cruisers for the Yachtmaster Motor training scheme.

With Allabroad Maritime Training you undertake your MCA training using modern teaching techniques with high quality training equipment. We use a professionally purpose built gas powered fire training simulator that allows you to be trained how to fight a real fire, under push button control, in a confined space. During the training you will be wearing full breathing apparatus and the same fire and heat proof clothing as worn by professional fire-personnel all over the world. You will also use our dedicated smoke room for realistic search and rescue drills in thick non-toxic smoke.

For the survival wet drills we use an outdoor tanked salt-water swimming pool; luckily in Gibraltar we have good all year round weather with 300 days of sunshine. You wear immersion suits for drills and wetsuits too if required. Remember in real life emergencies you will not be deploying to a heated swimming pool in the daylight; we keep it real and safe at the same time.

All training is conducted by our full time in house instructors and all equipment is provided by Allabroad Maritime Academy. We do not subcontract out any part of your course and we are the sole MCA Accredited Training provider in Gibraltar and for a 1000km. There is also an MCA Approved Doctor in Gibraltar for ENG1’s.

    Great sailing school. Good quality boats, excellent range of good instructors, all bringing something a bit different. Good classroom facility that you can use 24 hours a day for study, sitting room for students, good buzz in the marina with lots of watering holes. This is a thoroughly professional sailing school that really cares about its students. Just one word of caution . . . try to make sure your instructor sails West, out of the Med for any mileage building or indeed training trips, and that your log book clearly shows this. Why? Because since the RYA removed the tidal requirement for RYA Day Skipper there are some UK charter outfits, especially on the Solent, who are cagey about accepting quals issued in Gibraltar because they're uncertain whether charterers have enough tidal experience. Conversely, the Gibraltar experience of Colregs in amongst big vessel traffic is unrivalled. Night sailing there is scary and amazing. Its like driving around Marble Arch in heavy traffic at midnight with all the lights turned out. Finally, sailing across the Straits to Africa, with all the major traffic, is also a brilliant education.

    I did my Day Skipper and Yachtmaster here and I had a great experience.

    They have a well maintained fleet and great instructors. Their unique location offers fantastic flexibility and variety for sailing, the instructors were experienced and demanding and what they taught me has stuck with me to this day.

    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

    Just completed and passed my day skipper course. Excellent location and great to experience sailing amongst the large ships. Very knowledgeable instructors. Will plan to return to do my Yachtmaster sometime in the future.

    Fantastic times! We were lucky enough to have a few afternoons out on the Motor Cruiser, the Durban Lady, she is certainly that. Nice to spend time with enthusiastic, knowledgeable people who are lucky enough to work in an environment they obviously love. Fingers crossed we'll be able to return one day and enjoy some more hours fun in the sun, on the sea :)
