One of the best ways to learn good boat handling skills is to have private boat training on board your vessel.This way, you can become familiar with its handling characteristics and build your confidence in the vessel and your driving abilities. The training can also help you get used to a new boat or a bigger boat and is an excellent follow up to boat licence training.  Based on your requirements, our senior maritime trainers will work with you to develop a boat training plan which focuses on the specific skills you need to consolidate your confidence and experience in handling your vessel.
