Safe Harbor Maritime Academy begins summer program

ADVERTISEMENT

Jacksonville-based Safe Harbor Maritime Academy has begun its first summer program, Summer Yacht School where 12 teenage boys will spend the summer living aboard the 114-foot M/Y Amazing Grace and learn to pilot the vessel, acquire the skills of a deck crew member, become familiar with the engine room, learn to prepare food in the galley, and collect other skills relevant to life and work on a superyacht.

In addition, weekly adventures will include sailing lessons, scuba diving lessons, and fishing aboard a 50-foot Hatteras motoryacht.

Amazing Grace is part of a fleet of boats owned and operated by Safe Harbor Maritime Academy, which also operates year-round as a home for troubled adolescent boys.

“We’re excited to offer what we believe to be the first of its kind summer program for adolescents to live, learn, work, and play aboard a megayacht,” said Douglas Smith, founder of the academy. “This can be a one-of-a-kind summer experience or it might be the beginning of a career.”
