We Go Above and Beyond

Our Instructors

We have the most experienced instructors on the upper Clyde. Their background experience comes from the power vessels you actually use for work or pleasure. We employ full time instructors who are solely focussed on you and your course. They are highly trained, empathetic individuals who will tailor the course to your personal needs all while following the RYA syllabus. We are all about training you!


Although navigation and skippering boats is a serious business, it should be fun and it’s our ethos that you have a great time with us! Course completion certificates and certificates of competence awarded by us are valid for inland and tidal waters.

Tell Me Something Interesting 

Unique Premises

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.

Our Expertise

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. On our Powerboat Level 2 for example, we offer a 1:1 private student:instructor course. This enables individual attention to assist you through the course if you truly desire this option. 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 your chosen course.
