The entire Naos Yachts team is passionate about sailing. Our team consists of offshore, coastal, and dinghy racers, as well as long-distance cruisers.

Our instructors are US Coast Guard Captains and ASA/RPBA certified, so you can rest assured that you’re in good hands. You’ll learn from the best of the best, gaining invaluable knowledge and experience that will last a lifetime.

While other schools may start you out on old small boats, our smallest sailing yacht is 30.1 feet, and our powerboat is 27 feet. All our boats are less than 2 years old. Most of our well-maintained yachts range from new to 4 years. The brand? Top-of-the-line Beneteau Sail and Power, and Lagoon Catamarans. This means you will be learning on some of the best boats available, with the latest and most advanced technology on the market today.

Want to know what to do in case of medical emergencies? Naos Yachts offers a Red Cross First Aid class on a boat to prepare you to provide care when it’s needed most.
