SBT Powerboat Refresher & Experience Building


One Day Powerboat Refresher               

( Powerboat Experience Builder Below )


This one day powerboat refresher course is perfect for students who have already completed the RYA powerboat level 2 course but maybe have not managed to get onto the water as much as they had hoped.

We tend use a 6.5m 6 man rib boat for the course that runs along the following format :-

Classroom Theory & Safety Session - 2 Hours

Areas covered include : Life jackets, VHF radio, flares, kill cord, anchoring, cold water shock, the chart, datum, tides, weather forecasts, bouyage and collregs.

Marina Skills - 2 Hours

Areas covered include : Engine checks, boat familiarisation, mooring bouy, holding off, coming alongside, springs and lines.

Open Water Maneuvers - 3 hours

Areas covered include - Application of collregs, high speed control, man overboard, plan a basic passage/pilotage and simply time at sea.

RYA Powerboat Refresher Southampton

With so many skills to refresh in a single day we only run with 3 students per boat per instructor at a cost of £149 per person which includes everything except lunch. Just book online.


Powerboat Experience Builder ( Solent Ports & Harbours )


If you feel that you boat handling skills are still to the level of the RYA powerboat level 2 or above but simply want time on the water then these one day events are for you.
On a 7.5m rib we head out into the Solent and explore as many ports and harbours as we can including Hamble, Cowes, Yarmouth, Lymington & Portsmouth.
Lunch is usually taken at a waterside pub ( no alcohol, sorry ) at the students expense. We run with just 4 students and instructor onboard so plenty of time on the helm.

Students must hold a RYA Powerboat Level 2 or above to take part in either of the events above.
