Powerboat Training UK

Boat on river with instructor and pupils


Powerboat Training UK have been teaching people to drive powerboats and jetskis for over 20 years and alongside our sister company (Marine Education) are based in three of the harbour’s great marinas.

We offer one and two day RYA Powerboating Courses or the 1 day RYA Jet Ski course.  These are  great ways to get onto the water with family or friends, learn new skills, see Poole from a completely different angle and get qualifications that are internationally recognised.  If you are very lucky you may see a seal or dolphin too!  Most of the course time is spent on the water learning how to manoeuvre the boat in both the marinas and out in the open sea.  Lots of fun is to be had.

There are two ways to book these afloat sessions with us.

1. As a group of three you book a dedicated course and its just you training that day(s) on the boats/jetskis.

2. Alternatively you book in on a regular scheduled course with us and you attend with other people.

For all courses we are running in a COVID secure way and you get a free PTUK ‘Buff’ to wear during the course.


If there is a group of you then we can organise and Instructor and boat to complete a course for up to 3 of you over the age of 12.  Further information on the courses are below:

We run two identical  7.8 m Ribcraft boats with all up to date electronic equipment. These are great harbour boats, easy to drive but really powerful too and there’s plenty of room on board. Our PWs are new Yamahas which are immaculate and great to ride


Courses are run from 3 of the main Marinas in Poole where there is free parking; wet weather gear and lifejackets
