"Our team really enjoyed our tailor-made course with Luxury Yacht Interior Training. They listened to what we needed and designed a syllabus to suit our requests. Great communication from start to finish to ensure both parties got the maximum benefit. I’d like to send special thanks to Donna, who was an excellent teacher to us all!

The course was engaging and very informative and Donna was an absolute star! Great skills learnt that were put into practice with our charter guests."
