rya 225x100 - RYA Motor Cruiser Training

RYA Motor Cruising Courses

People who own power boats longer than 7 metres and are interested in receiving instruction to skipper their vessels in a way that is both safe and competent should enrol in the RYA Motor Cruising scheme. We provide training programmes that range from the Helmsman certificate, which is designed for novices, to the Yachtmaster Certificate of Competence, which is designed for people with more experience who want to skipper boats over longer distances at sea or for a living. Completeing the Day Skipper Practical qualifies you to apply to the RYA for your International certificate of Competence (ICC) up to 24m.

All of our training will be conducted aboard a luxury Fairline Targa 43, which is a multi-purpose express cruiser that has been incredibly well-designed.

Helmsman, International Certificate of Competence (ICC), Day Skipper, Coastal Skipper and Yachtmaster scheduled courses are held at Ocean Village MarinaSouthamptonHampshire SO14 3XB UK and in the Solent area.

  • Private and highly personalised Motor Cruising training is available on a one two one basis

Own Boat Tuition

Every RYA Motor Cruising course may be completed aboard a vessel that you own. The RYA mandates that the boat must be longer than 7 metres, shaft-driven by a single, a pair of inboard engines, or potentially a stern drive, and equipped with a sleeping cabin and a galley.

Own Boat Tuition can follow a RYA syllabus to obtain a boat licence or we can tailor the tuition specifically to your personal requirements so you gain the maximum confidence out of the training.

Courses can be conducted in Southampton, Hampshire, Hamble, Portsmouth, Lymington, Chichester, Cowes, Poole, Isle of Wight, or anywhere on the South Coast, elsewhere in the UK or in the Europe
