RYA Powerboat Advanced

RYA Powerboat > RYA Powerboat Advanced

Overview

Course
Syllabus

RYA Powerboat Advanced is aimed at more experienced leisure and professional boaters who would like to consolidate their experience by achieving a more demanding qualification on board a powerboat.

The course further develops your skippering techniques so that you can undertake more challenging trips by day and night in coastal waters. Urban Truant’s 6.8 and 7.85 metre RIBs enable you to make these coastal passages to be made comfortably at planing speed. You will carry out more advanced manoeuvres such as lee shore handling, berthing in adverse conditions and search and rescue patterns. You will also learn about night time navigation, plan and undertake some night time passages.

The RYA Powerboat Advanced qualification can be used commercially and it’s the required standard by many professional bodies such as the RNLI, Police and Military. To obtain your commercial endorsement you will need to complete an independent exam for the Advanced Powerboat Certificate of Competence conducted by an MCA/RYA examiner.
