The Royal Yachting Association is the most recognize teaching facility in the world as far as sailing. That means that you can expect to be taught by an experience skipper aboard a seaworthy yacht. Our school is inspected annually from UK inspectors to ensure that training yachts and instructors meet the high standards required from the RYA and Maritime and Coastguard agency (MCA). * All courses practical or theory are taught in English. * At the end of each successful course the student receives an RYA certificate.
In addition True North Yachting Ltd is the exclusive distributors of Beneteau Sailing Yachts and OB motorboats for Cyprus. Also is the distributor of Delphia Yachts and Maxi Yachts. The company is also involved in the used yacht market and will also take up yacht maintenance projects such as annual antifouling, winch servicing and generally any type of project relating to sailing yachts as we have a very wide network of collaborators.
True North represents AP sails in Cyprus, a Greek sail making Company based in Thessaloniki. We are trained to measure any sail on any sailing boat and we can order any type of sail in any material. Dacron, Taffeta or even more exotic Kevlar or Carbon fibre are some of the sail materials used.
We also Charter our Yachts both bareboat and skippered. Besides our own yachts we represent several other owners and we can book half day, daily or even weekly skippered charters for both sailing boats and power boats of various yacht sizes.
