SBT Powerboat Refresher & Experience Building



One Day Powerboat Refresher                

(Powerboat Experience Builder Below)


This one day Powerboat Refresher Course is perfect for students who have already completed the RYA Powerboat Level 2 course, but maybe have not managed to get onto the water as much as they had hoped.

We tend to use our 6.5m, 6 person rib boat for the course, that runs along the following format:-

Classroom Theory & Safety Session - 2 Hours

Areas covered include:  Life jackets, VHF radio, flares, kill cord, anchoring, cold water shock, the Chart and Charted information, tides, Weather Forecasts, Buoyage and Collision Regulations.

Marina Skills - 2 Hours

Areas covered include:  Engine checks, boat handling and re-familiarisation, picking up mooring buoys, holding off, coming alongside, the use of springs and lines.

Open Water Manoeuvres - 3 Hours

Areas covered include:  Application of Collision Regulations, Planing Speed Control, M.O.B, running of a basic passage/pilotage plan, to gain more confidence and time at Sea.

RYA Powerboat Refresher Southampton

With so many skills to refresh in a single day, we only run with a ratio of 3 students to 1 instructor, per boat at a cost from £149 per person.  This includes: the use of waterproofs if required, all applicable safety equipment, charts and all equipment needed for planning and fuel.  Please remember to bring your own lunch. If this is for you, why not just book online.


Powerboat Experience Builder (Solent Ports & Harbours)

If you feel that your boat handling skills are still up to the level of the RYA Powerboat Level 2 or above and you simply want time on the water, then these one day events are for you.
On one of our 7.5m ribs, we head out into the Solent and explore as many ports and harbours as we can which might include Hamble, Cowes, Yarmouth, Lymington & Portsmouth (weather conditions dependant).
Lunch is usually taken at a waterside pub or café (no alcohol permitted during this event, sorry) each students expense. We run with just 4 students and 1 instructor onboard, so plenty of time on the helm.
With prices starting from £149 per person, why not book your place today.

Students must hold and be in possession of their RYA Powerboat Level 2 Certificate or above to take part in either of the events above.
