RYA Power Boat Training Courses

Exe Harbour Launch

We offer RYA powerboat training courses from beginner through to advanced. Practical, enjoyable courses on the beautiful Exe Estuary and approaches using harbour patrol vessels.

We have two vessels that we use for RYA Powerboat courses and skippered vessel charter;

  • Our Alaska 500 was built by Shetland. With a 70hp four stroke Yamaha engine this vessel provides positive handling and copes well with the choppy waters
  • ‘Exe Harbour Launch’ is a Highfield 6.6 metre RIB (rigid inflatable boat) coded as a workboat to Category 4. She was built in 2023, 150hp engine and is an absolute joy to drive
