Power Course

FUNDAMENTAL POWER BOATING

This course is the perfect program to teach you the fundamentals and rudiments of boat operation under power of up to 75hp.

This program is carried out in small vessels equipped with outboard engines. The aim of the course is to have you by the end, be able to competently and confidently operate any small RIB or Runabout vessel anywhere from 18-22′. Additionally, this course prepares you for your Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC) testing as well as national or international certification. Hands on training is essential element to be comfortable out there. Zooming around the harbor on any small powerful vessel is a load of fun and learning to maneuver such agile boats is an awesome challenge.
