Own Boat Tuition

Own Boat Tuition

Even after attending an RYA training course and receiving your certification, you may feel that you would like to have some more training and practical experience under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor. Most structured training with any organisation will include multiple people on a course and you may feel that you want some additional experience.

Many who have just passed their driving license or even their private pilot’s license will continue with some additional training or assistance.

Maybe you have had previous experience on Motor Yachts but need a little refresher?

Perhaps you have purchased a new motor yacht and are not 100% comfortable taking her out yourself?

Own boat tuition allows you to gain the most out of your time with our instructor. Before your tuition commences, we will contact you to discuss your experience and expectation, based on this we will plan a day to ensure you gain the maximum experience from your day.

Historically we have found that docking and close quarter handling is the area that most people want to improve especially in challenging weather conditions. By careful planning and preparation, we can show you how to dock your boat in any position and in even the most challenging weather conditions.

Other areas could include:

  • Anchoring and advanced anchoring techniques.
  • Route and passage planning.
  • Reading and interpreting the weather.
  • Managing your crew effectively

We also have many years of experience with marine electronics and their systems, many of the new multifunction displays from manufacturers such as Garmin, Raymarine and Simrad have excellent features but require a considerable amount of knowledge to gain the most out of using them. This can include, electronic charts, Radar, Sonar, engine data, CCTV and even apps like Netflix. We can help you get the most out of these products.

Remember that own boat tuition is about your boat and your crew, they maybe your family or your friends, but they all have a part to play in ensuring your safety and enjoyment.
