PBI Development – Intro to Cabin Cruisers

This is a one day course run on Millbrook, our Nelson 42. The development day is designed for any PBI, APBI or Motor Cruising Instructor who is looking for development in handling a twin engine motor cruiser.


In our experience, we have been asked to conduct training on an ever increasing number of single and twin engine powerboats with cabins. A Powerboat course is no longer solely conducted on 5-6meter ribs. This throws up a completely different teaching dynamic that powerboat instructors are generally used to and the day includes plenty of time behind the wheel, including electronic nav, radar, single engine operations as well as discussions on how we can overcome the various teaching challenges on a boat this size..
