JLS Yachts ist sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man effektiv, effizient sowie praxisorientiert den Bootsführerschein erwerben möchte. Sehr erfahrende Kapitäne erklären das Basis- aber auch das Expertenwissen für jeden verständlich. Somit kann man z.B. die Ausbildung „RYA Powerboat Intermediate“ und den „RYA Powerboat Advanced“ in kleinen Gruppe und mit viel Spaß erwerben.
