Based in Neyland overlooking the marina and waterway.
We are a recognised RYA training
centre based at Neyland Marina where the lectures and boat are. Here you
will find a cafe and bar overlooking the marina.
The marina has toilets, showers, cafe, bar, nature walks, bike hire, and free car parking. There are also 2 'Pods" which sleeps 2 adults and 2 children which can be rented.
The coastline of Pembrokeshire is some of the best in the UK, providing much to see and do. From coastal navigation, night passages along the Milford Haven Waterway, rough water at St Ann's Head and plenty of sheltered areas too! We have some great beaches too, like St Brides, Newgale and Broad Haven.
You will find the courses both interesting and challenging, and you can be sure of having a great time. You will be under the guidance of a qualified instructor who will take you through step by step how to handle a powerboat in rough and calm conditions. There is a ratio of three to one for these courses.
Hi Len & Sue
We just wanted to drop you an E mail to say how much we enjoyed the Powerboat Course.
From start to finish the whole process has been smooth and enjoyable. Sue was extremely swift and helpful answering all questions beforehand. Len's knowledge was excellent and made learning a large amount of information in a short period of time enjoyable and informative. The hands on experience was excellent and we all 'had a go' until we perfected the manoeuvers. Len is extremely patient (even if he had to tell me to "Steer before gear" 20 times). He made me feel comfortable and confident in my ability. Not easy for a nervous driver! We would recommend the course to anyone thinking of purchasing a boat or just going out to 'mess about on the water'. We hope to be back for some more instruction in the future.
