Brilliant day out, excellent skipper and very fast boat. The whole day was well organised and all of my party (10) had a great time. Can't wait to go again!

“RYA Powerboat 2”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

We had an excellent 2 days. There were three of us on the course with mixed abilities - but that was easily catered for by Ollie our instructor who was informative, patient and supportive throughout. We spent the morning doing theory and then the afternoons tranferring our learning into practical work on the water - followed by a short review at the end of the day. Good learning and loads more confidence. Highly recommended.

“Great tuition, great fun and perfect location”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 via mobile

Can't recommend Ollie and the team highly enough. Had a great 2 days doing PB2 prior to purchasing a motor cruiser. Really glad I did the course, Ollie was patient and diligent and made sure we had fun too...highly recommended!

“Our experience of RYA Powerboat 2”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

My wife and I, having negotiated the (possibly) reckless purchase of a 37' motor cruiser as our first boat, decided that we had better pursue at least some basic training in seamanship, powerboat handling, emergency procedures etc.

We couldn't have picked a better company than Solent Boat Charters.They were professional, caring, knowledgeable, and most of all, PATIENT with us as total beginners. Our overnight (complimentary) stay on their Sealine cruiser was a real bonus. Sincere thanks to our instructor, Ben, who was so easy to listen to, and was never phased at all when we didn't quite get it right!!

Thanks too to Matthew Burton, although we exchanged emails prior to our weekend course, we met only briefly as we were boarding the Sealine, and to Beau, who kindly showed us how everything worked on board!

A great team, a great course, would recommend to anyone starting out!

“Stag do activity”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I would like to thank Matthew for a great day out. We hired a RIB for a day as a stag-do activity for 11. it proved to be excellent fun and an even better hangover cure! I would recommend to any groups doing the same as it was flexible, exhilirating and definitely something different.
