Why choose Marine Education for your RYA Powerboat Level 2 Course?

Our Instructors: We have a team of the most highly qualified and experienced RYA instructors you can come by - check out their qualifications (and smiley faces) here! Our Principal has 20 years of RYA teaching experience and therefore keeps a close eye to ensure RYA best practice is always maintained so you get the best learning experience possible. 


Our Location: Poole Harbour is one of the most beautiful areas in the U.K, there aren't many places in the world where you can go from calm serenity of the western end of the harbour, to the heavy traffic of the port area, National Trust nature reserves, the award winning beaches of Sandbanks / Studland Bay and iconic Old Harry Rocks on the Jurassic Coast in one day! Putting that aside we also have mind-blowing learning opportunities by having nearly every type of buoy, a variety of marinas to practice our close quarter handling (whilst checking out the beautiful new build Sunseekers) along with sheltered areas down Wareham River and behind Brownsea Island. There is a reason why both the RNLI college and Royal Marines base themselves here... 


Value for Money: If you're looking for the cheapest course available, then we are not the school for you. We pride ourselves on offering competitive course prices for the highest standard of training and use of some of the best equipment available for training. To date, we have always been rated as 'excellent' in our Feedback which speaks volumes about our level of service, tuition, craft and equipment.
