Professional & Recreational Powerboat Instruction on Galway Bay
Welcome to The West of Ireland Powerboat School
Based in Galway, but covering the entire West Coast of Ireland, we offer professional and recreational powerboat experiences and training courses to clubs, organisations and individuals or groups. Since 2015 we’ve taught over 200 candidates on power boating courses in the West of Ireland.
We provide all of the necessary gear to get you on the water for a fun, interactive and educational experience. Our instructors are highly qualified, experienced and we are fully insured. Check out our courses or give us a call to discuss your requirements.
Our instructors have years of experience skippering high powered craft and have completed a wide variety of training courses to ensure that our courses are delivered to the highest of standards. All courses are certified by Irish Sailing and can be endorsed for Commercial or International recognition.
What is Powerboating?
Powerboats, speedboats and RIBs offer a fast, exciting and versatile way of getting into boating. Because of their speed and because they can easily towed behind a car they are great for trips and exploring both at home and on holiday. Powerboats provide a popular, relatively affordable and exciting way of getting afloat. They are perfects for families wanting to see the bay and explore, picnic, ski or dive.
National Powerboat Courses
An Irish Sailing certified training course with PowerBoatWest provides the ideal way to get afloat for the first time, or to build on skills you already have. All courses are run on a national syllabus used all over Ireland. You will be led by a trained and qualified Irish Sailing Instructor. Each course is carefully designed to provide you with all of the skills and confidence you need to get you out on the water and to get the most out of your boating.
Most of our courses run over the weekends but we do cater for all. If you have a preferred course date, contact us and we will make it happen!
