RYA Powerboat Training Centre

RYA Powerboat TrainingOne of the joys of boating is learning new skills and being able to handle your boat well. With boats, as with many other activities, you can never stop learning too. We believe that everyone gets more fun out of boating if they feel confident. For that reason, we are very proud that Trafalgar Powerboat Training is an RYA approved centre.

If you are just starting out with powerboating or wanting to move up to the next level, our experienced RYA qualified instructors are here to help you. We can offer tuition in your own boat including familiarisation and family training. Plus you can take courses including basic boat handling and navigation through to more advanced powerboat driving skills.
