The RYA Motor Cruising Scheme (or Yachtmaster Power scheme) is aimed at those who have an interest in motor boats and larger powerboats. Typically, motor boats will have sleeping and cooking facilities on board and will generally (but not always) be fitted with twin diesel engines. If your interest lies in smaller open boats, then please visit the Powerboat Training Scheme. Our Motor Cruising courses are usually run aboard "Bounty Hunter" our Sea Ray 37 (11m) motor yacht: a twin shaft sports cruiser, fitted with radar, chart plotter etc. Own boat tuition is also available. 

Motor cruising courses run for between two and five days. In addition to the practical courses, there are a number of shorebased courses that will help develop your skills and make you a safer and more self-reliant skipper.

At the heart of the RYA motor cruising scheme are the 5-day RYA Day Skipper Shorebased and 4-day RYA Day Skipper Power courses; between them, these courses teach those new to motor boating how to handle, navigate and skipper this type of craft.

Please click on one of the courses in our Motor Yacht Training Ladder (below) for more information. Blue boxes are RYA practical courses, Orange boxes are RYA shorebased courses and white boxes are non RYA accredited courses.
