Safety on Board



Safety is one area to be directly addressed, communicated and established at the first opportunity. When undertaking any sport, all safety aspects, risks and prevention of possible accidents should be assessed and managed. You can not avoid all accidents, but if every possible measure has been understood and implemented you can avoid many situations, experiences and incidents.

Taboo has been assessed is a UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency as a Category 2 Charter Yacht, for more information click here.

Upon your arrival on Taboo, the skipper will run through with you the Taboo Safety Manual which introduces you to all safety aspects and procedures on the yacht. Offers a chance for the skipper to introduce area of Taboo, its equipment and your personal safety equipment.
