Powerboat Northney



We offer two types of powerboat sessions, each usually approximately 2 hours.

Our highly experienced sailing instructors take participants out for fun on the water and the opportunity to drive the boat and learn from experience. Sessions include launching and recovery, preparation of boat and crew, boat handling,  picking up and securing to a mooring buoy, leaving and coming alongside, and being towed.

Our powerboat sessions are inclusive of fuel, moorings, RYA handbooks (where applicable) and free use of waterproofs.

The craft

Our powerboat sessions take place on our 4.9 metre Valiant DR490 powered by a Yamaha 60hp four stroke engine.


Participants will work towards RYA Powerboat Level 1 & RYA Powerboat Level 2 qualifications.
