Solent Boat Training "SBT" in Southampton is a truly international training centre as we have students travelling from all over the UK and Europe to train with our team of RYA, HSE & MCA instructors. All the courses found on this website are run by our own instructors at our own training centre, we do not farm out courses to other centres. This is due to our amazing resources including our boat fleet, classrooms and instructor team whom the vast majority are full time staff.

With 27 assorted yachts, motorboats, ribs and jet skis we have the complete flexibility to run courses for private individuals, companies and organisations. We offer training for all, from a weekend boater to a super yacht crew.

We work alongside and are the training provider for Coastal Pursuits charter group, with 7 classrooms and a training workshop all within the marina together with free accommodation included with most courses means your training will be to the highest standard.

We offer own boat tuition all around the Solent including Southampton, Hamble, Lymington & Cowes.


RYA Powerboat Courses Inc Level 2 & ICC

We run the RYA powerboat level 2 courses throughout the year on our own fleet of 6m training ribs with Intermediate & Advanced courses run on either of our 7.2m XSribs. We also run MCA & SBT advanced training courses on our 8.4m Redbay Stormforce ribs. 

Many of these boats are MCA commercially coded vessels for day and night use up to 20 miles from land, far more than we actually require for these RYA powerboat courses.

We also run a complete range of commercial endorsement training courses and RYA Instructor Training courses.
