Why Learn with Ocean Sports Tuition

Powerboat and Motorboat Training Specialists

Ocean Sports Tuition have been successfully delivering high quality RYA tuition on the south coast and the Solent since 2004. We started from humble beginnings as a RYA Windsurfing School in Mudeford Harbour, finally evolving into an RYA Advanced Powerboat Centre and RYA Yachtmaster Academy. We offer a range of RYA courses covering powerboat and motorboat training, boat delivery services, marine consultancy, marine filming support and waterman services.

At Ocean Sports Tuition, we pride ourselves on never losing sight of our purpose – to provide excellent tuition and service to our customers. Keeping our courses streamlined to powerboat and motorboat training allows us to be experts in every course we offer. Additionally, we use the latest equipment and always provide the best boats to support learning. Our small, friendly environment and approachable team ensures a first class experience for our customers. As a result, you will build close relationships that give you the confidence to secure your learning and have the best possible experience. It is the pride we take in what we do, that sees many of our customers return for further courses.

Owner & Founder, Andy Murray

Since 2004, Andy Murray has strived to provide the perfect environment for beginners and experienced boaters at Ocean Sports Tuition. Andy passionately enjoys time on the water with his wife, 2 young children and new puppy (Eli). When not at work, Andy and his family can be found at the beach windsurfing, kite surfing and just generally mucking around in the water.
