About RYA powerboat courses

The RYA National Powerboat Scheme is for those wanting to drive small open powerboats such as RIBs (rigid inflatable boats), sports boats and small launches. These boats are generally powered by an outboard engine, do not normally have accommodation on board, and so are not intended for extended cruises. They may be used for short coastal or inland trips, fishing, safety cover for other watersports or as a support boat for diving. Whether you use powerboats for leisure or work, or in connection with another activity such as sailing or rescue, there is a course for you.

SEAOMAN offers the  RYA Powerboat Level 1 and 2 courses from its sailing school at The Wave, Muscat.

RYA Powerboat Level 1 course

This course provides a practical introduction to boat handling and safety in powerboats. It covers boating techniques for launching and recovering a boat from a road trailer, everyday boat handling and the use of safety equipment. The course may be conducted in a variety of boat types and the certificate issued will be endorsed to show the type of boat in which the training took place. This is a one day introduction to Powerboating with no previous experience required.
