The aim of the Maritime Officers School is to train Israeli youth as officers for the navy and the merchant marine, by teaching sea-faring theory and by practice through work. It has a threefold curriculum: sailing, sea mechanics and marine electronics. The school seeks to inculcate a love for country, proper conduct with the crew and decent social behavior. The name of the school was changed to "The 23 on the sunken rowboat" in memory of the 23 "Palmach" fighters who went down, when on their way to an operational mission in May 1941.
