Learn to Powerboat

The thought of zipping across the waters in a swift powerboat is one that would hold potent appeal for most people. Chances are that the thought of steering the boat yourself with the wind through your hair is something which you’ve always wanted to do, if you’ve dared to dream that far. With Aquasail’s Learn to Powerboat course you can make this dream come true. Join the Aquasail Yachting Academy (AYA) for the Learn to Powerboat course and within three sessions you will find yourself steering a powerboat over the Mumbai harbor.

What is Power Boating?

Power boating is a fast, zippy form of sailing on a boat powered by a strong engine which can take you flying across the water.  Power boating is hugely exciting and challenging while it can also be relaxing and stimulating at the same time. At AYA, we teach power boating on a fast and high control boat known as the Flyer 650 with 150 HP Outboard. AYA creates a firm base for students who have no power boating experience and for those who have the experience but want to be sure they learn the right way.
