Advanced Boat Handling

Getting a bigger boat? Upgrading your skills? Want to ditch your captain and have some privacy? Looking to get qualified for your insurance company? Using my years of experience as a Royal Navy instructor and professional yacht captain and coach, I will train you to captain your own boat. Docking, collision avoidance, anchoring, navigation, and safety. I train owners and captains like yourself to insurance company standards.

Client Review

"In a single full day session I went from total beginner to confidently docking my boat. I can't believe how much I had to learn and David was an amazing coach.  It was really fun too!"
