RYA Powerboat Level 1 Training Course 

RYA Powerboat Level 1 training courses, for 8 years old upwards, provides training for RIB drivers. On this first step in the RYA powerboat training scheme you will learn how to, launch from a trailer, prepare for sea and safely coxswain a small powerboat or RIB by day. 

Our Training boat is a 6.5m RIB which has a 4 stroke 150HP engine. Alternatively you could complete your training course on your own RIB or power boat as own boat tuition. On completion of Powerboat level 1 students should progress to the RYA Powerboat Level 2 training course.

RYA Powerboat Level 1 Training Course Fee Includes:

  • No fuel surcharges, marina fees or hidden costs when on our boats
  • Our 6.5m RIB for powerboat level 1 training, including all running costs
  • Instruction by one of our specialist RYA Powerboat level 1 instructors
  • Powerboat level 1 course certification on successful completion training
  • RYA recommended safety equipment to be carried on training courses
  • Foul weather clothing, if required
  • Powerboat training goggles - just in case of a rain shower!
  • Refreshments during the powerboat course, but we do not provide lunch

Course dates are often combined with the two day Powerboat Level 2 course, this means we can put siblings of all ages on the boat together. If the dates below do not suit you check out the dates on our RYA Powerboat level 2 training course page.
