We currently have two main training boats, nicknamed Nipper and Humber. They’re both RIBs powered by 150bhp Yamaha outboard engines. Our RIBs have been designed and developed specifically for training purposes. The combination of high strength, low weight engineering with a deep ‘V’ shaped hull and unique tapered keel planning services produces an ideal training vessel.
The specialised design of our training RIBs allows them to grip the water, enabling sharp, responsive handling perfect for practicing manoeuvres such as man overboard, mooring a buoy and launching. The shape of the boat also means that on choppier days out on the water, the RIB will give a more comfortable ride and softer landing on re-entry into the water.
Our RIBs are a popular choice for both leisure users and commercial operators so whatever your reason for taking a course with us, you’ll walk away with the relevant practical experience.
