RYA Jet Drive / Jet Boat Training

£POA Booking


Our standard RYA Powerboat Courses take place onboard our fleet of petrol driven outboard engined RIBs. A select number of students however want to specialise in jet boat handling. We therfore offer a range of jet boat courses onboard our Jet Viper, a Jet Drive powerboat. Unlike our standard powerboat courses you book the whole jet boat, rather than individual spaces on board.


We offer two standard Jet Drive / Jet Boat courses and can bepsoke other options to suit you. These courses are normally taught aboard one of our two "Jet Vipers". The boats have excellent handling at slow and high speeds, their specifications are;

  • 7m
  • 12 seats
  • 450HP Engine
  • Hamilton Jet drive


Jet Boat Conversion

Aimed at existing Level 2 certificate holders the conversion day looks at how jet driven craft handle differently from outboards. Most of the day is spent on close quarter handling with some time devoted to high speed handling.
