RYA Powerboat Courses in Greece


Our principal training powerboat is a 5.5m Dromor RIB powered by a 115 HP Yamaha outboard . She is easy to handle yet reaches a top speed of 40 knots.

She has a portable VHF radio and GPS plus a powerful engine tilt and trim system. She also provides valuable support for our RYA sailing courses in Greece.

RIBS (rigid inflatable boats) are by far the best option for powerboat training. They offer high buoyancy, great power to weight ratio and are less intimidating for newcomers learning how to moor a boat.

'Nik' is typical of the most popular type of  powerboat and the skills you will learn will be easily transferable to boats you will rent or purchase.
