Boatability is a professional training organisation, which is fully insured with the latest safety equipment and sea going boats, fit for use on the sea/coastal waters, which will enable you to obtain a Coastal and Inland Waters International Certificate of Competence (ICC) on completion of your training. We are not a Sailing Club, for whom you must you be a member of to be able to do a course with! Boatability is an authorised RYA Powerboat Training Centre. RYA Powerboat Training Courses include RYA Powerboat Level 1 & 2, Intermediate and Advanced Power Boat, RYA VHF / DSC Training, RYA First Aid and RYA Sea Survival. You can get your European Powerboat qualification or "Boat Licence" in the form of the ICC - International Certificate of Competence from Boatability too. RIB, Cruiser and Powerboat charters are available. Some boats are available for bareboat charter depending on qualifications and others are provided with skippers.  

Capable of providing a wide variety of recognised Powerboat Courses, including shore-based training, we utilise a selection of powerboats to ensure maximum training value. Alternatively your own boat can also be used for training with one of our instructors.  
Located within the Portsmouth Harbour area we have ready access to training areas in the Solent that are both safe and challenging. For example it is 4 miles just to the harbour mouth so plenty to see and learn before opening the boats up once out at sea. 
The Royal Navy have a saying, "If you can drive a boat in Portsmouth, then you can drive one anywhere!" 
Some of our instructors have in excess of 20 years military boat driving experience and are either RYA, City & Guilds or Advanced powerboat Instructors. 
Boatability has been teaching power boating and shore-based courses for over 18 years and is very well respected across the leisure and commercial boating industry.
