Choosing the right Trawler School

May 27, 2014

Trawler School Charters is one of the first trawler schools where you can experience living aboard for 3 days, 4 nights while learning all about ​operating​ and buying a trawler. This is our ninth year in business and we are still going strong. Hundreds of clients have graduated to become a Trawler Scholar and went on to fulfill their trawler dreams. All of their reviews are on – check them out, they are fun to read.

We were the first to open a private two person trawler school.  Included in our teaching are the following subjects:  living aboard, long range cruising, anchoring, electrical systems, 12 volt 110 volt system, inverters, high voltage alternators, electronics, single vs twin engines, marine diesel engine, generator, navigation, rules of the road, docking, night maneuvers, and let’s not forget man overboard drills are also covered.

Choosing the Right Trawler SchoolYacht Brokerages and charter boat companies decided to add a trawler school to their company in order to benefit financially by selling you a trawler through their company. This is a conflict of interest, would you not agree?  It would very uncomfortable if the end result is to sell you a trawler for a huge commission. Trawler school charters has never sold, recommended, or been involved in finding our clients a trawler. This is one point we pride ourselves on: you can relax and learn about trawlers without any sales pitch.

I am the sole owner and operator of Trawler School Charters, a private trawler school, and I was the top broker for the largest trawler brokerage firms in Florida. I wrote “The ABC’s of Trawler Buying” Book, a buyers guide to help you understand the different models and what to expect when looking for a trawler through a private seller or yacht brokerage firm. This information alone is what separates my school from all others. We want you to understand the full process of buying a trawler so we put aside a two hour class covering contract negotiations, surveyors, insurance, financing, closing, and documentation.

We offer an all inclusive rate and have not raised our rates in 9 years. We keep it simple!!! Check out our web site, it is full of information and pictures about our school.
