Powerboat Training

Powerboating is enjoyed by many as one of the most exhilarating and invigorating hobbies around. Powerboat training allows owners and enthusiasts to gain more from their experience. The skills learnt through our powerboat courses here at Saltwater Experience will not only provide you with the skills necessary to handle your boat in harbours and out at sea, but install a new level of confidence to allow you to explore and venture out further than you did before.

Our bespoke and RYA powerboat courses cover everything from close quarters manoeuvring in harbours and marinas, through high speed handling in both rough and flat waters to off-shore navigation and journey planning.

Whatever your experience, our powerboat courses can help you get more from your boat and do it more safely.

Our onshore RYA powerboat training centre is complete with state of the art presentation systems and a relaxation area for tea and coffee.

Our RYA VHF courses use the latest radios from several manufacturers and our RYA Powerboat Diesel Maintenance courses provide hands on experience in the classroom and boatyard with real installations.

Why choose Saltwater Experience for your RYA Powerboat Training?

From the outset, we have attempted to develop our powerboat training courses to be the best.

To achieve this, we train, re-train and continually assess our own instructors. We analyse the comments and experiences continuously improve our course content and delivery. We invest in the very best boat,  our Arctic Blue really is magnificent and we have created a purpose designed training centre based at Rossiters Quay, Christchurch.

Of course, we already have an unfair advantage in that we are based in what we believe is the finest powerboat training location anywhere in the UK. Christchurch is blessed with two navigable rivers, a stunning harbour and direct access to the sea with the Solent on the left and the Jurassic coast on the right. This unique combination allows us to design our powerboat training  courses to cover every handling requirement from narrow channels with currents, winding channels through large open waters and open sea with sheltered bays and guaranteed rough water around headlands when required.

If you are going to learn how to handle a boat, then why not do it on one of our powerboat training courses with the very best combination of instructors, boats and location? We look forward to welcoming you at Rossiters Quay, Christchurch.
