As an accredited RYA Powerboat Training Centre, our aim is to take you further

Lloyd - Our very experienced assistant skipper and instructor

Lloyd James is an RYA approved instructor who has plenty of inshore and blue water power boat experience upon which to draw. He has a passion for teaching safe seamanship with a high level of enthusiasm that is fed back through our post-course reports. "I take the task of powerboat instructing very seriously. There is so much to teach in such a short time, but I never forget my students should also enjoy themselves. If I make the day fun, what I teach will stick … which is of course what it is all about."

Richard: "A hugely enjoyable and stimulating course which I would thoroughly recommend to anybody. I now feel much more confident in both boat handling and navigation. Thanks Lloyd!"


Graeme: "Not having much experience with boats before, it was surprising to find out what a difference a really experienced instructor and a proper boat makes! This may sound obvious but the boat Saltwater uses is great. Much better than any other training school I looked at and I know when I start taking boats out on my own the experience I gained will be a huge comfort. It was just fun to be out on a boat with someone that knows what they're are doing and obviously loves it! Thanks, you were very patient and I would recommend you guys to everyone who wants to go out and have some fun on a boat."
