Our customers tell us one of the most important services we offer is our “Launch and Learn” program, which enables a new boater to learn the ropes from an experienced, licensed captain.
|Modern Yachts helps new boaters learn to navigate Long Island waterways|
through the "Launch And Learn" program.
Exclusive to Modern Yachts, Launch and Learn is complimentary on-water training provided to customers who purchase a new or used boat from Modern Yachts.
The program focuses on:
- basic boat operation, controls at the helm, and rules of the “road”.
- destination training to all east end and offshore ports. These may include Block island, Montauk, Sag Harbor, Newport, Shelter Island, Greenport, or Nantucket - to name a few.
- Shinnecock locks safety training, which provides an overview of lock operation and suggests best practices for navigation through the locks.
- safe boating courses. Modern Yachts conducts NYS safe boating courses at our Westhampton location and encourages new boater participation.
- mooring/anchoring/tie up training and service. This invaluable component prepares new captains for the basics of maneuvering a boat during mooring and anchoring.
The Launch and Learn program is a great opportunity for new captains to navigate local waters in the recently-purchased boat. The session will will be conducted with a single participant for individualized attention.
At the conclusion of Launch and Learn, new captains will be more educated on the operation of the individual vessel, will develop skill in boat-specific maneuvers, and will have a fuller understanding of local waterways.
Boaters seeking more in-depth training may contact Modern Yachts for information on advanced training sessions.
