We are able to provide both the RYA’s
recognised courses and courses tailored
to the individual's needs.
The RYA's National Powerboat Scheme is
for those wanting to drive small open powerboats
such as RIBs (rigid inflatable boats),
sports boats and small launches. These
boats are generally powered by an outboard
engine. They may be used for short coastal
or inland trips, fishing, and safety cover
for other water sports, water skiing or
as a support boat for diving.
Whether you go boating in a RIB, a sports boat or a cruiser, power
boating is exhilarating, fun and fast. Attending a suitable training
course is increasingly being viewed as the means to get more from your
boat through a better understanding of its capabilities and of how
to harness its power.
Whether you use powerboats for leisure
or work, or in connection with another
activity such as sailing or rescue, we
have a course for you.
