Practical Powerboating Tuition

Practical powerboating courses are held on board one of the school’s training vessels and include all meals on board for the duration of the course. Courses depart from Manly Boat Harbour and if they are longer than 1 day the boat will spend the evening at anchor, or in another harbour.

At Yachtmaster Offshore level students can undertake a practical examination to receive an RYA Certificate of Competence. These certificates can be used towards commercial qualifications and are recognised internationally.Powerboating tuition Southern Cross Yachting
