Powerboat Training

Have you ever wanted to experience helming a powerboat yourself? We are agents for Humber Rescue who provide powerboat ‘taster’ sessions as well as RYA Powerboat level 1 & level 2 courses from their base under the iconic Humber Bridge.

Powerboat ‘Taster’ Sessions (£50 inc. VAT) last 30 minutes and you will be at the controls for almost all of the time, under the supervision of a qualified RYA Powerboat instructor.

Powerboat Level 1 courses (£175 inc. VAT) are 1 day in duration and are aimed primarily at people who would like to be able to assist more experienced powerboaters. Minimum age 8 years.

Powerboat Level 2 courses (£290 inc. VAT) are 2 days in duration and cover all aspects of handling and operating a small powerboat safely. As well as boat handling you will cover navigation/chartwork, rules of the road, buoyage and beaconage, weather and tides etc. Minimum age 12 years.

We can also conduct ‘Own boat’ RYA level 2 courses, if you’d rather learn onboard your own vessel in your home waters. This is available from £200 inc. VAT per person. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

More details about the RYA powerboat courses can be found on the RYA website.

We also offer private tuition sessions, should you want to develop your existing skills and/or gain helm-time experience. Private tuition is tailored to your requirements, so please contact us to discuss the options available.
