The Boating Centre is a centre of excellence for all things Marine. We have over thirty years of dedication and experience at the highest standard of marine engineering, boat sales, marine surveying and training.


Our fully qualified RYA instructors are trained to a high standard, have first aid qualifications and are all subject to ongoing assessment by an independent inspector. They have extensive knowledge, backed up with practical experience from a range of marine backgrounds.

The boat

Our school boat, a Highfield 6.6m RIB, is kitted out to a high specification and is fitted with a Honda BF200hp four-stroke outboard engine.  The boat is capable of handling a wide range of situations and sea conditions in utmost safety.


The classroom

Onshore training takes place in our fully equipped classroom in The Boating Centre. As much time as possible is spent out on the water, training is carried out in Lyme Bay bay where you will complete the practical elements of the course.

Covid 19 - We are currently unable to operate as normal but do contact us for more information or to make a future booking.  We hope to reopen and begin training again on April 12th 2021.

As usual we take a maximum of three people per course but, as part of our Covid-19 precautions and until the Government guidelines suggest otherwise, students must all be from the same family, household or bubble.
