I am leaving school with good exam grades

If you have good GCSE or A-level grades, the most cost and time effective method of getting onto a superyacht is to enrol in the merchant navy as an engineer officer cadet. You will be paid a wage by a sponsoring company; they will also pay your course fees. At the end of a three year period of study (depending upon starting qualifications) you should be awarded a Merchant Navy Officer of the Watch certificate. This is much quicker than the Yacht 4 route and is a far superior qualification, which has fewer limitations on the size and power of yacht you will be able to work on. It will also speed up your career progression towards Chief Engineer.
