RYA Powerboat Level 2 Solent Boat Training Course From £199

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 training course is run over 2 days by our friends at Solent Boat Training and is the place to start a hobby or career on the water. This Southampton based RYA powerboat training centre runs a fleet of 10 rib boats which they will use to teach you how to make a tidal sea passage during daylight hours. You do not need any previous experience at the helm of a boat to take this course, so there is no need to take the level 1 course which is recommended for junior students. 

Passing this level 2 powerboat course allows you to apply for an ICC - International Certificate of Competence which is often needed for boating abroad.

RYA Powerboat Level 2 Training Courses

The Southampton Shamrock Quay marina base is perfect for teaching the level 2 course due to calm but busy waters of the Itchen river and the Southampton main channel.

They provide us with nearly every navigational mark as well as plenty of water traffic to give you real life training.

When you have gained your level 2 certificate you will also be able to bareboat a rib boat for exploring the Solent with friends and family.

A Choice Of RYA Powerboats Depending On Experience

With the choice of 8 high power ribs available to the school we can match the perfect boat to our students. Your instructor will decide which boat or even boats you will use on the course.

We feel it essential to spend as much of the course as possible out on the water. Classroom time will be kept to minimum, but some indoor time is required. Our classroom overlooks the marina with kitchen & toilet facilities on hand.
