Annapolis Powerboat School was founded in 1996 on the premise that the best way to learn was by doing. A hands-on approach to learning has proven successful for over three thousand new power boaters educated by Annapolis Powerboat School.

The objective of our powerboat instruction is simply stated: our students will be competent and safe powerboat operators, who appreciate the joys of boating. New boat owners find the instructional program to be comprehensive, rewarding, and most importantly, a tremendous confidence builder.

Experienced boaters will find the private instruction and emphasis on hands-on practice an excellent way to fill in gaps in knowledge and will appreciate the opportunity to practice new skills and techniques in a relaxed environment.

Powerboating, like any other activity, is enjoyed most when you do it well. Powerboating can be enjoyed with a leisurely cruise or a high speed trip. Whatever aspect of powerboating most appeals to you, let Annapolis Powerboat School help you to enjoy a safer and more enjoyable time on the water.
