Own Boat Tuition

Own Boat Tuition for
Motor Cruising and Powerboats

Make the most of your investment

Your own boat represents a large investment, and at Duck-2-Water we believe that the best approach to maximise confidence and enjoyment is to have a full understanding of how your own boat operates in various circumstances. This gives you great confidence in the boat and your driving skills because you are intimately familiar with the handling features and quirks of your own boat.

We offer Own Boat tuition on Motorcruisers, Powerboats and RIBs of all sizes.

Own boat instruction does not require any prior boat handling expertise because we now customise everything entirely around your needs. Both beginners and seasoned power boaters can use these days.

We advise taking either the RYA Powerboat Level 2 or RYA Day Skipper courses if you want to receive a formal qualification and a powerboat licence from these own boat tuition days.

One of the benefits of training on your own boat is that you have the freedom to run the course in whichever manner you see fit and do not have to make any additional considerations for other students, as you would if you were participating in an open course. This may either give you with a course that is lot more intensive or one that is much more easy-going, depending on what you are attempting to combine it with, such as a family vacation.

So, whether you want intensive training on a particular subject or simply some emotional support while you develop your own confidence, our instructors will be completely accommodating to your needs.
