Private Powerboat Lessons

Basic To Advanced

Be a better boater with private lessons

Our private courses are a great alternative to rigid group lessons that force you into long days and a fixed timeline. Whether you’re looking to refresh your skills or try lessons before committing to buying a boat, private instruction is the best way to accomplish this.

Private lessons give you:

  • a high level of focused attention to fast track competency and skill training.
  • flexible scheduling that aligns to your availability,
  • on-line access to the theory so you have 24 hour access and no rigid classroom structures.
  • begin learning classroom materials before your lessons. Early prep makes for more effective learning and greater retention.
  • Private learning experiences are proven to improve learning and heighten retention by 30%.

Lesson days are scheduled to average about 5 hours a day. This time is spent onboard the boat.  We (and science) have determined that a 5 hour day maximizes retention and learning. After your initial assessment, we have a clear sense of your learning style and areas of focus for your full education. We create customized learning experiences to successfully meet your boating goals, whether it’s boat ownership, chartering, or being a better crew member.

We have a fantastic team of qualified instructors who will get you confident and boating safely in no time.  All our lessons are taught on new Beneteau boats.  You have the latest in designs, electronics and industry technology.

Our private lessons are offered all year long, seven days a week, with start times from early morning to late afternoons.  Give us a call or book your package on line, and we’ll schedule your customized learning experience.

Where to start

Our highly experienced instructors will help you quickly determine where you are most comfortable and where you need that extra focus and attention.
