RYA Powerboat Training:
We offer a range of Powerboat Courses both from our 7.85 Ribeye or Private Boat Tuition. Poole Harbour and the surrounding coastline is a fantastic location for powerboat training. From a variety of Marinas to practice your berthing and close quarter handling, to a busy harbour with plenty of traffic and buoyage to learn navigational skills, to nice open waters in Poole Bay to practice your faster planing speed exercises, it has it all. All of our courses are run by experienced instructors who love being on the water and helping you gain confidence in all aspects of boat handling.
RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course – 2 Days
This is a great course for anyone looking to get in to boating with no previous experience or for someone who has a little experience but would like to develop their competency further. Whether you are looking to buy a boat, drive a friends or potentially hire one, this course is the perfect opportunity to get out on the water and develop the necessary skills. Powerboat Level 1 is not required and this is our most common Powerboat Course.
I.C.C. (International Certificate of Competence)
If you are looking to potentially hire or charter a boat overseas then you may require your ICC. It can either be obtained from an existing RYA Qualification such as RYA Powerboat Level 2 or by doing a direct assessment.
Own Boat Tuition
We offer own boat tuition to help you get comfortable and the most out of your own craft. Why not bring a couple of additional family members or friends along to help them learn how to master the techniques as well. You can either choose to undertake a full course on your own boat or simply practice some of the areas such as berthing that you feel less confident at.
RYA Intermediate Powerboat – 2 Days
This course is aimed at people who have managed to get some experience out on the water at the controls of a powerboat and would like to develop their navigational skills to progress on to making longer passages.
Superyacht Tender Operator Course
This course is designed for people working within the Superyacht Industry who would like to gain further powerboat skills. It covers night time navigation and passenger safety management to assist for future tender driving roles on board.
RYA Advanced Powerboat – 2 Days + 1 Evening
This course is generally undertaken by people looking to work commercially in the marine environment or experienced leisure boaters. The course focuses on night time navigation, rough water handling and search & rescue techniques. It can be combined with an advanced exam to complete the Advanced Commercial Endorsement.
RYA Powerboat Level 1 Course – 1 Day
This one day course introduces the basic boating skills and is suitable for adults and children. However, it is not required to undertake the Powerboat Level 2.
RYA Powerboat Instructor
If you are looking to start a new career on the water or would like something to do in your spare time and are an experienced power boater, on successful completion of this course you would be able to teach the RYA Powerboat level 1 and 2 courses from a recognised RYA Training Centre.
We offer both our Powerboat Level 1 and Level 2 Courses to children aged 12 – 16 years old. On successful completion of the course they will be issued with an endorsed certificate. These courses are a great way to develop childrens boating skills and knowledge from an early age.
Why train with us?
We have a great team of instructors in a fantastic training location and over 12 years of experience running powerboat and PWC training. We pride ourselves on providing quality training and price our courses to reflect this. Our Powerboat courses are run on our Ribeye 785, which whilst being a larger rib will give you the confidence to go on and drive a range of powerboats. Poole Harbour has such a diverse range of buoyage, channels, features and other vessels which all act as great training aids and it’s just a short hop out to Poole Bay for a great open area to practice some faster handling skills.
