Aboard Boat Coaching
RYA Training centre based at Universal Marina on the Hamble
Welcome to 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 powerboat training 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 and 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 a little more money 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.
