Overview

Our RYA Powerboat Level 2 course provides two days of practical training giving you the practical skills and theory knowledge needed by the small boat driver. You will learn to drive our 6m RIBS at high and low speed as well as mastering parking in confined spaces.

RYA Powerboat Level 2 entitles the holder to an International Certificate of Competence (ICC), which is accepted in place of a boat licence in many European countries if you are considering chartering a small powerboat. The Powerboat Level 2 is also a requirement for all Windsurfing and Dinghy Instructors.

This course is approved by the MCA and it is important for anyone planning to work professionally in the Superyacht industry as they will be required to drive the tenders and support craft on board the yacht. The RYA Powerboat level 2 course is included within our Superyacht Deckhand and Steward or Stewardess programmes.

The training takes place in the Solent which provides an ideal training ground in which to develop your powerboating skills with busy challenging tidal waterways.
