RF Marine offer 'own boat' tuition and can prepare skipper and crew all the way up to Yachtmaster Offshore for power or sail. We can cover theory, conduct practical exercises using RYA recommended techniques (the Solent, Channel Islands and West Country are wonderful training grounds) or just help you brush up on some skills.
Is your partner a little nervous of the new purchase? RF Marine can help you all gain the confidence and skills you need to make the most of your time on the water.
Short of time? Are the systems more complicated than they look? We can take care of the regular chores and maintenance for you, ensuring that everything's ready for that weekend away when the sun comes out.
Thinking of going further afield? We run bespoke charter and training packages in our beautiful Oyster 485 Escapade of Rame, designed to help you prepare to sail away into the sunset. We'll take the mystery out of preparations for a Transatlantic, give you hands on experience of routine maintenance, living away from marinas - or simply handling watch routines on a long passage. Our expert knowledge of the fabulous cruising grounds of Southern Ireland, Brittany and Galicia will ease you into that cruising life!
We carry full Professional Indemnity Insurance.
Whether you want to get your boat to a starting point for a family holiday, bring your new purchase back from foreign climes, or you've had to return home and left your pride and joy in a French marina, RF Marine are here to help. We will provide an experienced crew, ensure the boat is properly prepared for the passage and keep you informed of progress throughout the delivery. Depending on the complexity of the job, we will operate a fixed price per day contract, or agree an 'on delivery' fee.
