Ship handling


Our ship handling centre is the only one of its kind in the UK, and one of very few in the world. Its harbour areas and 19 jetties can create multiple berths, offering a wide range of ship handling scenarios for senior deck officers, captains and pilots.

Our courses are delivered using scaled manned models, with emphasis on developing skills and understanding the behaviour and handling of ships. The focus of the training is around the demonstration of slow speed control.
