Aboard Boat Coaching is our business name under which we are a recognised Training Centre with the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). Our operating base is at Premier Universal Marina, Sarisbury Green, where we have 2 separate classrooms, this is our only RYA training venue, located on the lovely river Hamble. All our courses run from 9 or 9.30 till around 5 pm unless otherwise stated in joining instructions. All our courses have maximum numbers which are displayed in each of the course descriptions. We are still holding onto some Covid restrictions, especially for First Aid Courses.

We supply all course materials free of charge and at ABC we only teach in the English Language. Our VHF Courses have an extra fee built into our price made payable to the RYA for the VHF Radio exam, (when applying for your Short Range Certificate). We have no hidden costs for any Course.

At Aboard Boat Coaching we want all our customers and guests to have fun on the water, be safe and respect the Sea.  We play a huge part in this as an RYA recognised training centre by providing the best power boat training in Southampton and instruction we can, spending most of your training time on the water when the syllabus allows it and utilising high-quality equipment and facilities. Whatever the Southampton Weather brings, we try and get out there to provide you with a truly enjoyable Rib Experience. Our Shorebased classroom Courses are in superb purpose built Training Rooms, using excellent if not new equipment with experienced Instructors.

You do get what you pay for when you choose a training centre and here at Aboard Boat Coaching, we offer a very fair and competitive price for what you get. We make no excuses for charging perhaps a little more for a Course than some other places, but think about this for a moment, there must be a reason, right? There is, you get a quality course and work with quality equipment, taught by knowledgable and patient Instructors. We are not far from Southampton and Southampton Airport – directly on the river Hamble. Southampton Water, the Solent and the Isle of Wight are on our doorstep too. We are located on the Portsmouth side of the Hamble with easy access from Fareham and Gosport.
