Our RYA Powerboat Level 2 course is for anyone who has limited or no powerboating experience. This course will give you all the knowledge you need to safely handle a powerboat both on and off the water. The RYA powerboat level 2 course introduces you to basic navigation, boat handling, anchoring, securing to a buoy and many other topics. The RYA powerboat level 2 course is run over a two-day period for up to 3 students.

We have one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland for you to train in. The Clyde is well known for its commercial shipping environment and is the gateway to the west coast. Its tidal waters will give you an excellent grounding in your learning experience.

Seatrek Marine Services is the only school in Scotland that specialises in power and motor boating. Our instructors are very experienced and have an excellent knowledge of power craft. Whether you wish to do your training on the school boat or your own vessel you can rest assured you will be getting taught by the experts. Taking your RYA Powerboat Level 2 course with us will make sure you get a solid start to your powerboating skill and knowledge.

If you have at least one season of solid boating experience, you can apply to do the RYA Powerboat level 2 assessment. The assessment takes 2-hours and can be done either on your own boat or the school boat. No teaching is performed during this period as you should already have the skills and knowledge to pass the assessment. For more information please contact the office.

The holder of the RYA Powerboat level 2 powerboat certificate can apply for the ICC (International Certificate of Competence)

RYA COASTAL SKIPPER PRACTICAL COURSE

Dear Lesley

What impresses me is your complete professionalism. John is a demanding yet very encouraging instructor; a motor-cruiser course is hard work, incredibly instructive but yet remains immensely enjoyable. It is for this reason that, having taken the Coastal Skipper completion course, that I subsequently and gladly enrolled for  refresher-course, decided that Seatrek Marine Services was the only option for my PB2 and now intend to take my YM Coastal and Advanced PB under your exceptional guidance. Having taken the Sea-Safety course with two of my colleagues from the East Midlands I can happily commend your shore-based courses.

 

All best, John

RYA Powerboat level 2 course

Absolutely fantastic two days, RYA Powerboat level 2. Very patient instructor  putting up with all my stupid questions. About 90% of the course is practical training out on the boat and about 10% theory all pitched at a level that is very easy to understand for a novice.
Throughout the two days there was a constant stream of tips and advice from the instructor and by the end of the second day I was much more confident about going out on my own boat.
Thoroughly recommended!
