Crew Etiquette & Butler Training

An exclusive service by Ocean Mangement

Yachting is an exclusive luxury experience, where the highest standards of service are anticipated. In order to exceed expectations, yacht crew require highly dedicated professional training in all areas.

Carried out on board your yacht, the concentrated, bespoke training programme is delivered by Hanspeter Vorchezer himself. He will carefully teach crew members how to provide the ultimate private service, developing these skills within their actual working environment and taking into consideration all the unique nuances of your yacht.
