Private Instruction

Educational Objectives

We will design boating education tailored to meet your special needs.  Chapman School of Seamanship has professional maritime instructors ready to show you the ropes – or the helm as the case may be.  Our instructors personalize lesson plans to meet your learning objectives and busy schedule.

Private Lessons may be:

  • One-on one or small groups.
  • In the classroom or at the helm.
  • Power or sail, your vessel or ours.


A Chapman School certificate of completion is awarded to students who complete the course. These certificates may qualify a boat owner for marine insurance discounts.
