RYA Powerboat Scheme

The RYA Powerboat Scheme is applicable to Sportsboats, RIBS, Dories, Launches, and other boats which do not normally provide accommodation or cooking facilities.

Jon Mendez is the author of “Start Powerboating”, the official handbook issued with all RYA Powerboat Level 2 courses.

Mendez Marine offers excellent professional and comprehensive training on quality equipment. We mainly use full time instructors and most teach right up to Yachtmaster level with a wealth of experience behind them. Our powerboat instructors are chosen not only for their skill, but for their sense of humour and passion for boating. Remember you can charter our boats after so you can keep your skill level up.

We run RYA Powerboat courses at our centre in Swanwick and our new Centre at Hythe Marina.

RYA Powerboat courses can be run on our boats or your own boat from £299 per day, with a maximum of 3 students per boat.

If you are unsure which course is right for you please get in touch. All of our RYA Powerboat courses can be packaged with the various support courses to suit your individual requirements, contact us for more information.
