Powerboat Level 2

At Milebuilders, we run the Powerboat Level 2 Course. This fun, challenging and very popular two-day course provides the skills and theory required for driving powerboats such as Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB), open day-boats and any kind of sports boat up to 10m. We provide group-training sessions (maximum of 3) or we can provide one-to-one tailored tuition for you on your own boat.

The course comprises a theory component and lots of fun on the water practicing low-speed and close-quarters handling, man overboard recovery and an introduction to basic high-speed manoeuvres. If you already have lots of experience driving powerboats, speak to us about the one-day Powerboat Level 2 assessment.
