RYA Powerboat Level 2 

*Depending on Availability 
The RYA Powerboat Level 2 was developed for individuals who want to learn how to operate a small boat safely in daylight hours. 
We are very fortunate to be based at Port Solent and believe we have the best training locations in the world... 
Why is this the best Location ? 
5 square miles of sheltered harbour so we can find somewhere to operate even in the harshest conditions. 
Close to the open sea 
Just about every type of buoy and navigation mark to experience first hand 
Historic fortifications and landscape to enjoy 
Plenty of shipping traffic to play with 
Plenty of Isle of wight destinations for Intermediate and Advanced courses 
Great location for evening entertainment and food 
All of our courses are fun and informative. Instruction is from very experienced instructors, including ex Royal Navy Specialist trainer, an MCA Coastguard instructor, a very experienced fisherman who probably spends more time on the water than he does on land... even our mechanic is 2 x European powerboat champion who offers plenty of advice and expertise to the mix! A client recently commented, that the course was very professionally run but just as important was great fun too! Please read some of our feedback under the Testimonial / Clients tab at the top of this page to see what our customers say... 
Regarding pricing, we don't profess to be the cheapest but I think if you take into consideration that we teach the Royal Navy and organisations such as the Fire Service, we are certainly one of the best! Our Powerboat Level 2 costs £289 per person, £250 for two or £235 for three or more. This includes VAT, certification, The RYA Powerboating handbook, ICC application form, all safety equipment, boats and fuel and depending on the weather foul weather gear too. The course can also be run from your location using your own boat, depending on type and suitability.  
*We may be able to price match competitors in the area depending on availability. 
For the experienced skipper a direct assessment can be also be undertaken over ½ day period costing £165.
