Finance is helping this business to fly

Founded in 1995, Flying Fish UK is a leading provider of superyacht training, offering courses for individuals seeking a career change, adventure, and professional growth in the unique industry of superyachts and other maritime careers.

Under the directorship of Andy Hunt, Flying Fish is now at the forefront of providing quality training programmes, attracting customers from across the globe. These include deckhand and steward courses, STCW Basic Safety Training and professional RYA Yachtmaster qualifications. 

Andy Hunt says: “Our courses provide worldwide employment opportunities to students, young people and others who are looking for a change in career. We pride ourselves in supporting all our students as they embark upon their ocean careers, and many often return to us to take the next step.”  

The team at Flying Fish recognised that many potential students prefer a finance option to help fund their training so, in November 2023, they began working with Ideal4Finance.  “We wanted a finance provider who would facilitate access to our courses. Ideal4Finance listened to our requirements, and we now have a facility in place which is enhancing our sales process and improving the customer journey.”

Andy believes strongly that offering flexible finance options has made its training programmes more attainable and more appealing to a wider audience. “We have certainly seen an increase in sales since working with Ideal4Finance and we are very hopeful that this trend will continue. We are extremely pleased we got on board with them!”
