Aboard Boat Coaching started trading on the Hamble in November 2018. We are no strangers to training though and have been running RYA Courses for quite some time and our instructors have a wealth of professional experience behind them.

We have chose Universal Marina as our home, because of its superb location and quick access to the ideal cruising and learning waters of the Solent, the river Hamble, Southampton and the Isle of Wight. The facilities on site are hugely beneficial to anyone who chooses to embark on a course with us.  You can read more about these on Universal Marina’s website, it is a fantastic location for learning and to get out on the water. http://www.premiermarinas.com/marinas/universal-marina
