The boat you will train on:

This is one of the unique parts of Marine Education, we train you on a powerboat that will prepare you for not just the 'now' but the  future of your boating!

Sadly the majority of people who attend Powerboat level 2 courses across the world do not take any further training, therefore ensuring that you are safe,  comfortable and confident to handle almost any type of powerboat is our aim, which is why we have opted for a larger sportsboat as our training vessel. During you course you will operate the boat under both single and twin engines to get used to the techniques and advantages of each and best prepare you for your boating future. In addition the 'larger than average' school boat size will prepare you for (almost) whatever your future holds whether that be purchase, renting/chartering, driving a friends boat or working on a boat without being intimidated about the size or engine configuration.
