Likely Participants

This advanced powerboat course suits both keen amateurs and budding professional users alike. Participants should possess a number of years experience and already be very capable powerboat handlers as it is assumed that attendees can perform all of the elements of the Powerboat Level 2 course with ease. In addition they also may have attended the Intermediate Powerboat Course. Equally, attendees should have chartwork and navigation skills at the standard of RYA Yachtmaster theory. Whilst having already achieved Day Skipper theory is not a prerequisite it is strongly recommended as it ensures that no time on the course is wasted addressing a shortfall in capability in this area. In addition attendees must hold current RYA First Aid certificates and RYA SRC Certificates.

The advanced powerboat course is aimed at experienced amateur powerboaters and professional users. It is a two day course and aims to teach boat handling, seamanship, pilotage and navigation up to the standards required to drive a planning powerboat safely by day and night in tidal coastal waters with which the candidate is familiar. Individuals considering attending an advanced powerboat course should possess their National Powerboat Certificate/ Powerboat Level Two (Coastal), be very competent powerboat handlers and have a level of knowledge of navigation and chartwork to the level of Yachtmaster Shorebased certificate. If you are unsure about your capability in this area, please contact us and we can quickly assess this for you. Your instructor will cover the following topics with you during your course:

  • Preparation for sea
  • Boat Handling (inc rough water)
  • Passage making
  • Pilotage
  • Meteorology
  • Rules of the road
  • Use of engines
  • Emergency situations
  • Undertaking searches
  • Night cruising

Additional Powerboat Level 3 course dates can be scheduled for groups of 2 or more. Plus, private and highly personalised Intermediate Powerboat training is available on a one to one basis.
