For those looking for the next challenge after completing the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course, we would highly recommend the RYA Basic Navigation course. Students who are looking to venture further afield or go out in more challenging conditions should consider coupling this course with the RYA Intermediate Powerboat course before progressing to the pinnacle of the powerboat scheme – RYA Advanced Powerboat course. Whichever course you decide on, we strive to offer you the best possible tuition, using our knowledge and expertise to achieve your boating goals.

All our RYA powerboat course prices are inclusive of fuel, moorings, RYA powerboat handbooks (where applicable) and free use of waterproofs.

Are My RYA Qualifications Still Recognised in Europe?

Since the UK ceased to be a member of the European Union on 31st December 2020, some changes have taken place that affect our sailing rights in Europe.
