Bareboat Booking could not be easier; simply call our office to discuss available dates. Please remember these boats are often working so a little notice will help immensely..

Marine Services

All our Skippers are RYA Powerboat Instructors who will teach handling skills, cornering, 'Blindfolded driving' and man overboard procedure. This will progress onto powerboat circuit training, then racing on our offshore circuit. At the end of the session we have a group prize giving.

In addition to our training we can advise on all aspects of boating from guiding you through what type of boat you want, how to go about the initial purchase, guidance on equipping it for sea, general safety matters or even passage advice. We charge this on an hourly basis, why waste lots of time - lets us guide you! Specialised areas that we cover are listed below, if not sure just call us and see if we can help?.
