The RYA’s National Powerboat Scheme is for those wanting to drive small open powerboats such as RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), sports boats and small launches. These boats are generally powered by an outboard engine, do not normally have accommodation on board, and so are not intended for extended cruises. They may be used for short coastal or inland trips, fishing, safety cover for other watersports, waterskiing or as a support boat for diving.
Whether you use powerboats for leisure or work, or in connection with another activity such as sailing or rescue, we have a course for you.
The programme comprises a series of practical courses which can be complemented by our navigation and other one-day support courses. Courses will be taken either onboard our centre’s boat, if in doubt, call us to discuss your requirements before booking your course if necessary on 07940235645.
