RYA Powerboat Level 1

Minimum age: 8 years old

The RYA Powerboat Level 1 is a fantastic introduction to driving boats for kids aged 8-12. It covers how to drive a powerboat safely both at slow speeds and quickly, how to moor alongside a pontoon, pick up a mooring and more. It also covers essential safety equipment and rescue techniques including man-overboard.

Our two day RYA Powerboat Level 1 course will give your child the skills they need to safely handle both tiller and wheel driven powerboats.

RYA Powerboat Level 2

Minimum age: 12 years old

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is targeted at adults and kids older than 12 and is an international standard for powerboat handling competency. No prior experience is required, although for younger students we often recommend attending a Powerboat Level 1 course first in order to be able to get the most from the course.

With your Powerboat Level 2 you can apply for an International Certificate of Competence which allows you to hire boats up to 10m long internationally.

Own-Boat RYA Powerboat Tuition

Available for both courses

If you have your own boat and would be interested in doing either the Powerboat Level 1 or Powerboat Level 2 course on your own craft, we can definitely help! It can be an excellent way to learn the best ways of handling your specific boat.

We can teach both courses on pretty much any type of powerboat, be it a RIB, wheel-steered ‘Boston Whaler’-type boat, tiller-steered outboard boat, traditional launch and anything in between – get in touch with us if you’re not sure.
