Our students will deal with many issues, all very real, there are no theoretical explanations thrown in for brevity;
For example, when we explain how to fix the little electric motor on the toilet, we first dismantle the toilet and motor because this is what the skipper would find in reality, then he will be shown how to fix it, quickly, between one stop and the next.
To this end, each student will receive a ‘trolley’ tool kit, containing the tools required to fix most of the problems that can occur on board a vessel.
Another case containing epoxy resin, mats, underwater putty, welder, drill, angle grinder, and sail repair kit will complete the equipment (included in the price) supplied to those who complete the course, qualified at that point to enter the world of charter.
The MaxMax skipper, hired by the charter company, will go on board with their own tool kit and repair materials ready for action, representing a highly specialized professional, person not yet present in the nautical sector.
Figures speak louder that promise:
In the last 10 years more than 200 students have signed up for our skippers course, some did not graduate, but all those who did became qualified skippers and were employed aboard our companies fleet of catamarans.

This school was NOT formed with the intention of teaching someone something without a clear goal, on the contrary it is a sort of employment office that guarantees the placement of a qualified skipper into a charter company, a professional formed with specific behavioral attributes.
All the successful graduates will be placed into the charter company circuit as qualified skippers by MadMax Charter.
The Madmax skippers school is a point of reference for those who want their abilities to be recognized and at the same time it is a pool from which charter companies can source a high quality skipper who has been trained to the highest professional and behavioral standards guaranteeing a season without problems.
