Tell Me Something Interesting
Our marine training courses are delivered from Scotlands most unique training facility. Light and airy, you literally step into our classrooms on the banks of the River Clyde which are afloat in the harbour. Outside, the boats are right there in front of you. You really do get a good maritime experience coming to us.
Our premises are staffed literally everyday of the year! We welcome you to pop in for a chat about your training requirements at an arranged time.
The Office/ Classroom/ Tea Room
Our expertise is training in vessels you will navigate out in the sea, coastal, inshore and inland waters where it can all go wrong so quickly. We train in both traditional navigation and modern electronic navigational methods.
In modern times large ships basically navigate themselves around the world using automated navigation methods, but we know that isn’t the case on the boats we use.
A knowledge of rocks, wrecks and other obstructions and being a good boat handler is essential for the vessel, crew and passenger safety.
Methods of Navigation
Student : Instructor
We believe in helping you become a proficient boat handler. In order to do this most effectively we reduce our student numbers per course compared to other schools. On our powerboat courses for example, we take a maximum of 2 students out per boat per instructor. And our shorebased courses are limited to a max of 4 students per instructor enabling individual attention to assist you through the course. This gives you much more time behind the wheel and time to relax into your course. It really gives your instructor time to get to know what your personal requirements are when it comes to powerboat training.
