RYA Level 2 Powerboat Training

For those who want to learn how to drive a fast motor boat up to 10 meters

The RYA Powerboat Level 2 course lasts 2 days and has been developed for people who want to learn how to independently drive a fast motor boat up to 10 meters. We teach at least 2 and at most 3 people at the same time. We provide our internationally recognised boating courses on a Rib Humber Ocean Pro (8m) with a 300 HP Yamaha engine.

RYA Level 2 Powerboat training

The course offers the practical skills and theoretical knowledge needed to sail safely with a fast motorboat.
You do not need a Dutch boat license or practical experience to start this course. The vast majority of the students obtain their certificate in 2 days. In exceptional cases it may turn out that someone will still need an extra course day. We will let the student know this on the first day.

The RYA Powerboat boating course is internationally recognised and is mandatory for renting a fast motorboat abroad. Furthermore, it is also a required diploma for future deckhands, employees on superyachts / tenders and cruise ships, expats and at the request of insurance companies.
Experienced boat owners, who want to learn to master the navigation techniques, also reserve this practical sailing course at RIB School Scheveningen. And also because it’s just very educational and fun!

For Dutch passport holders, the powerboat certificate is not a valid document in the Netherlands.
According to the law, a Dutch national must be in possession of the Dutch boat license (vaarbewijs), which is completely theoretical.

We strive to teach a maximum of 2 – 3 people at the same time in order to give optimal attention. You are alternately skipper and co-skipper.
The course is pretty intensive. This allows you to progress quickly and to learn from each other.

We do not have fixed training dates, but rather agree on a date in consultation with each other. If at all possible, we also try to combine people with an equal sailing level. Our agenda is flexible and it is usually possible to make a reservation at the Rib School Scheveningen in the short term.
When registering, please specify whether you would like to receive lessons during the weekend or during the week.
