Accommodation Options For Powerboat & Shorebased Courses



Due to Covid Restrictions Our Accommodation For Shorebased and Powerboat Courses Is Greatly Reduced

We recommend Airbnb.co.uk as an alternative





These options may make your training even more enjoyable and convenient, but please note available only to students on multi day courses due to insurance limitations.


Our friends at Solent Boat Charters operate a large fleet of licensed yachts within Shamrock Quay marina with accommodation options for SBT students on shore based and powerboat courses. 

Please note that all multi day yacht sailing courses include free accommodation that does not require booking. 

This includes Competent Crew, Day Skipper Practical, Coastal Skipper Practical and all mile builders.


Our shorebased/powerboat course accommodation is limited and we strongly recommend booking in advance to avoid disappointment, to book any of our accommodation in advanced only costs a £5 booking fee. If you don`t book in advance any accommodation we have available will be free, your choice to book or not.


We do not offer accommodation before your course starts or after it finishes.
