Powerboat Courses

  • Level 2

    You will learn how to handle the boat at slow and planing speeds, as well as basic powerboat handling manoeuvres. The course will predominantly use one of our centre console RIBs, however where time and equipment allows students should get an experience in a dory and/or tiller driven boat.
