Powerboat Private Instruction


Powerboating, like any other activity, is enjoyed most when you do it well. Powerboating can be enjoyed as a leisurely cruise or a high-speed trip. Whichever aspect of powerboating most appeals to you, let us help you experience a safer and more enjoyable time on the water.

At Annapolis Sailing School, we believe that the best way to learn is by doing. Our hands-on approach to learning has proven successful for over 3,000 new power boaters.

The objective of our powerboat instruction is simply stated: our students will become competent and safe powerboat operators who appreciate the joys of boating. Boaters, experienced or new, find the hands-on instruction to be comprehensive, rewarding, and, most importantly, a tremendous confidence builder.
