We run the full range of RYA courses here in Mallorca. Milebuilders are part of a much larger family of nautical businesses; which includes two RYA accredited training centres.

This means that we are able to provide you with the perfect level of training you require regardless of whether you are a recreational boater looking for your first introduction to boats, or a professional in the maritime industry looking to increase your qualifications for your job.

For many people. learning to sail and spending time out on the water is the ultimate leisure pursuit. Whether you are a complete beginner hoping to find your sea legs for the first time, or a seasoned sailor keen to build new skills and experience, at milebuilders we can help you achieve your goals through thorough, fun and challenging training in the stunning surroundings of the beautiful Balearics. Whether you want to learn to sail a dinghy, or something bigger like a cruising yacht, or maybe you want to learn to handle a motor yacht or powerboat, at milebuilders we have the team and the equipment to deliver for you.

If you currently work, or are hoping to work in the yachting industry you need appropriate training and qualifications. For sail, motor, power and personal watercraft, the Royal Yachting Association of Great Britain (RYA) has a wide range of highly respected qualifications that are internationally recognised and many of which can be commercially endorsed for those working in the maritime sector.
