Portree Harbour from SeaMotion

Our location

We are based in Portree on the Isle of Skye. This gives a great staging base for a lot of the west coast of Scotland, a superb area for doing a powerboat qualification, getting training on your own boat or just exploring with family and friends.

We are recognised as an RYA Training Centre and are able to deliver the following RYA powerboat courses: Level 1, Level 2, Intermediate and Advanced.

Further information on Skye and surrounding areas can be found here.

Our boat

Our main training boat is a 7.8m Ribcraft, powered by an inboard diesel engine (see pictures in the gallery). It is commercially coded through the MCA to carry up to 8 persons.

MCA coding reassures you that we meet all safety and professional standards to do this, and we are regularly inspected by both the MCA and RYA to ensure that we comply.
