Superyacht Tender Operator
Other Powerboating Adventure Courses
The role of superyacht tender driver is one of responsibility, with safety as its number one priority. Due to industry demand the RYA, working in association with the PYA, established the Tender Operator Course to teach tender driving up to the required standard to carry passengers, and other crew, to and from the mother ship by day, and most importantly, by night.
Only available through Advanced Powerboat Centres, candidates must hold the Level 2 certificate, a VHF/DSC marine radio operator’s certificate and a First Aid certificate.
The course will run over two days and one evening. The syllabus will include safety, day/night navigation, people management, local regulations, passenger safety and comfort, day and nightime pilotage and understanding the additional hazards of moving passengers, by water, in the dark.
Own Boat Tuition
Own Boat Tuition is a great way of getting to know your own powerboat, sports boat or day boat better; manoeuvre your boat with more confidence, understand and learn how to use the safety gear onboard and gain more enjoyment by feeling more confident on the water. We can tailor the training schedule to meet your individual requirements.
The course is subject to our instructor being happy that your boat is seaworthy, fully insured, has all required boat papers and meets the safety guidelines of the RYA, and the guidelines of the country in which your boat is berthed and where your training is taking place.
We can come and visit you onboard to chat about the training you require or please call or email us at the office. There must be a serviced life jacket available to each person onboard during training. For full details of flares, fire extinguishers, VHF radio, TPAs and other minimum safety gear required to deem the vessel ‘sea worthy’ please contact the Aigua Sea School office. Training is charged from €390 per day, including relevant taxes, increasing by 10% for each additional student if three or more onboard.
*Dates and timings may be subject to change at our discretion. We can arrange the dates to suit your schedule.

The course was great, Nathan was super attentive, he’s a great teacher. I feel like I got the best training possible being the only student, I really enjoyed the course.
Best training in town! Thanks Aigua Sea School for the professional training I got over the past 2 years. You guys guided me from my PB2 to my Day Skipper and finally my Yachtmaster Offshore!! Amazing team, training and instructor.
I would like to thank all at Aigua Sea School especially Nathan. I attended a powerboat course last year with Nathan as my instructor, and I was fortunate again this year to be taught again by Nathan on my YachtMaster theory and also my advanced powerboat course in September this year. Without a doubt this…
I am a happy boater with what I did learn in your school now with my own 34 Faireline Targa.
