"I can thoroughly recommend ABC boating... I further engaged ABC to help me fine tune my manoeuvring skills in a 32ft cruiser that I own. After 3 hrs I went from a zero out of 10 being absolutely petrified to an 8 out of 10 feeling like I can now do this on my own!" Katrina Prince, Google Review

Personalised Boat Licence Course

What can you cover during my boating lesson?

Our ABC trainers can work with you to handle any custom maritime request you have for them - these are the ones we do most often:

  • Handling a trailer-mounted vessel and reversing in a straight line down a boat ramp
  • Launching and recovering a vessel from a boat ramp
  • Navigate out of a marina and avoid collisions with moored objects
  • Manoeuvring a vessel in changing conditions such as passing a head, changes in tides
  • Estimating fuel consumption and day trip planning
  • General boat maintenance and seaworthiness

The easiest days to organise personalised boating lessons are midweek on a Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday.

We are able to do your lessons on weekends or other days, however these are subject to trainer availability as they are normally busy days at ABC Sydney.

You can most easily lock in a date if you get in early.

Where do you do the boating lessons?

If you'd like to use an ABC vessel we can travel to any convenient waterway around Sydney to help you with your training needs, so long as there's a boat ramp or other launching point.

Alternatively, many people have their own vessel that they'd like to be more experienced with - if that's the case it's even easier as we just meet you aboard your vessel.
