RYA Powerboat Advanced Course Customer Reviews


Coastal Pursuits Intermediate Powerboat Course Review The tutor was very professional and engaging as an instructor. The course itself was very water based to not much hanging around in the classroom. The facilities at Saxon Wharf and the ribs themselves were all very tidy and the marina itself is a nice quiet place to go over the basics.

The Hamble/ Southampton is a great place for beginners.
Over the 2 day course both I and the other person on the course really got the most out of it. 

I'd highly recommend it to anyone else.


Coastal Pursuits Powerboat Intermediate Course Review An excellent, friendly and comprehensive course, delivered in a sympathetic and reassuring manner and geared to your level of ability. Arriving a little apprehensive I was immediately put at ease and thoroughly enjoyed the two day Powerboat course which was extremely informative and professionally delivered.

I was amazed how much you can learn in just two days. If you want enthusiastic and professional instructors, excellent facilities and equipment in the impressive Ocean Village Marina on the Solent look no further.

I can only thank them for making the two days both enjoyable and informative and would recommend Solent Boat Training unreservedly to any one considering RYA training.


Coastal Pursuitsr Intermediate Course Review

I have used a number of various schools on the Solent for mileage Building and RYA PB Courses. I must say that Solent Boat Training are in my opinion the best.

Matt and Sean are excellent tutors who teach various ways of performing tasks at Sea. Their tutoring has dramatically improved my PB skill set. As for the Advanced PB Course I would recommend them taking it with SBT.

It was a great experience and the night time exercise was exceptional. Thanks again SBT
