Powerboat Level 2
Powerboat training Mallorca
This fun, challenging and very popular two-day course provides the skills and theory required for driving powerboats such as Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIB), open day-boats and any kind of sports boat up to 10m. We provide group-training sessions (maximum of 3) or we can provide one-to-one tailored tuition for you on your own boat.
Our rib is a robust Avon Adventure 620 with 6 jockey seats and a powerful yet economical 4-stroke Suzuki 140hp outboard. We use Seadoo jetskis for our jetski courses, and these are available for daily rental to holders of a PWC certificate and/or ICC with PWC endorsement.
The course comprises a theory component and lots of fun on the water practicing low-speed and close-quarters handling, man overboard recovery and an introduction to basic high-speed manoeuvers. If you already have lots of experience driving powerboats, speak to us about the one-day Powerboat Level 2 assessment.
