What's Happening At SBT In 2021

Welcome To Solent Boat Training in 2022.


We are all hoping 2022 is better than 2020 & 2021 in many ways and can`t wait to get back out there !

Our aim is to reopen in early January with an even bigger selection of training courses and events including sailing holidays, west country cruises and motorboat charters. We have added 4 new boats and opened new bases in both Lymington and Brixham for extra variety. Our fleet is back up to 16 boats making us one of the largest operators in the country.

Unfortunately Shamrock Quay marina has charged us full berthing fees and classroom rent throughout the lockdowns and also added an above inflation price rise for 2021 which will have to be reflected in course fees.

Below summaries what we have planned with our team of 20 instructors, 16 boats and 6 classrooms. 

Please do regularly check our latest Covid details and procedures here.

All the best for 2022.
