RYA Motor Cruising courses
 
For our motor boat courses we use two very different vessels to cater for  
whichever training you require; a 2006 Fairline Phantom 40 fly-bridge motor cruiser and a 2004 Evolution 38 single screw diving/angling boat for commercial & standard training.  
 
Kandooma, our Fairline Phantom is renowned for her sea keeping and refined comfort. Fitted with a bow thruster and using state of the art electronic throttle control you will quickly learn how to berth and handle this luxury boat. She is also fitted with the very latest full specification Raymarine electronic navigation aids including a 12" chart plotter with overlay Radar and interlinked autohelm to allow you to train with similar equipment to all production top specification vesels. We understand this course will also serve as part of your holiday and generally like to find the quieter backwaters for our pilotage training. We guarantee to show you beautiful unspoilt areas of the Westcountry during your course. 
 
Silver Sea, our Evolution 38 is a "hard boat" and similar in construction to an Offshore 105. Powered by a Caterpillar diesel driving through a single shaft, she is kept in excellent condition and a capable workboat. Fitted with comprehensive Furuno commercial standard electronic navigation equipment she is an ideal boat to gain experience with whenever non fly-bridge training is required.  
 
We have a wide variety of B&Bs and hotels near the school which will suit every budget whilst you are carrying out a motor cruising course. We will return to our home port each evening whilst training on either vessel unless mileage building. 
 
We provide high quality food and drink whilst you are onboard for lunch and  
afternoon snacks. 
 
We are able to cater for 1:1 tuition if required and this can include  
accommodation onboard if required. Our scheduled courses are normally run over 4 days for ICC Day Skipper or 5 days for Coastal Skipper and
