Motorboat Marina Skills Day


Solent Boat Training Offer Motorboat Marina Skills & Experience Days from our Southampton Based RYA Training Centre.

If you are looking to improve your handling skills within the Marina environment or are looking to brush away those cobwebs prior to their Mediterranean Holiday away, then this event may be perfect for you.

Our Highly Experienced Instructors can help improve your confidence with one of our Yacht Marina Skills and Handling Events.  This is a great way of learning new skills aboard our Twin Engine Motor Cruiser, whilst also refreshing all those existing skills under power, in a variety of conditions and situations.

Areas covered include:-

General Berthing and Coming Alongside

Springing On & Off in various states of Wind and Tide

Turns in Confined Spaces

Reversing into a Berth

Crew Management & Encouragement

The course runs from from 9.00am to 4.30pm and costs from £299 per person, season dependant.

For these Skills days, we will provide you with one of our experienced RYA Motor Yacht Cruising Instructors and our Twin Engine Rodman 1040, to help hone your own Marina Skills & improve your confidence. 

In addition, you will be acting as crew for each other throughout the day, allowing you time to observe and learn from each other. This allows each Skipper to practice their crew management, a key skill required of a competent Skipper.

The day runs from 9:00am to 4:30pm, please bring a packed lunch.

Required experience to attend this course is to at least the level of RYA Motorboat Helmsman and above or those who have completed the RYA Powerboat Advanced course and are looking to move into the Motor Yacht Scheme.
