I just wanted to say thank you for the great course last weekend. I think Ben did a tremendous job in very tricky conditions. He’s a real credit to you and Navsar.

Having recently returned from attending your Powerboat 2 course at Pwllheli last weekend, I felt compelled to write and say how much I enjoyed the experience and perhaps more importantly how much I benefited from the course. I will certainly be recommending it to friends and colleagues.

I would like you to pass on my sincere thanks to our main instructor Ben, who was excellent and an excellent ambassador for your organization. I know my brother in law and nephew who attended the course with me felt exactly the same.

Many thanks once again.

Best Wishes,

I Just wanted to email you to let you know I passed the Yachtmaster Practical exam in the early hours of Thursday morning, WOOHOO!
Thank you for your advice and support, and confidence during all of the time, leading up to to this. I have just rang your colleague, James, to pass on my sincere thanks to him and your team for the excellent training I was given during my stay , the difference between them and the evil South ********   ******* is miles apart, and I now realise how a proper marine training establishment should be run, with the sole purpose of helping customers achieve their goal, not just collecting money!
I m currently working on my CV, which if I may take you up on your offer I would appreciate your views and advice on. Thanks again Jon for all you’ve done I looking forward to hearing from you in the near future
Kind Regards

Dear Jon

Just a quick note to give you my sincere thanks for the excellent training we received at the weekend

We now have the confidence to practice and develop the basic and essential skills you so effectively conveyed to us.

I thank you also for the emphasis and continued reinforcement of the safety messages; hand on always throttle, kill cord, 360 awareness, steer before gear…

It has also helped me to recognise how little I actually know and how much more I have to learn, to develop the competence to venture further afield.

Once again

Many Thanks

I recently had the privilege of having some marine training with Navsar, having had a bad experience with another company, based in the South. Navsar, not only provided professional well informed tuition, but their ethos of creating not just pass results but students who at the end of their training can progress further in the knowledge that they have been trained to a high standard and that Navsar will continue to assist them in every possible way to achieve their goal, Navsar is a friendly informative school who will carefully shape and mould you into a safe sailor within a relaxed atmosphere what ever your chosen field. Navsar the star of marine training. Thanks, Mr Johnstone

Having done 21 years in this industry and looking into further qualifications I have been to many RYA centres, by far this was my best experience and most educational. The instructor Jon was very knowledgable and able to put experienced education to the class in a understandable and enjoyable 5 days. Thankyou for the knowledge and experience. Highly recommended RYA training centre. Thanks, Craig H.

5 out of 6 students passed. So happy with this result. Great tuition, excellent course. Jon was superb, interacted well with everyone and kept all students engaged and interested throughout. Excellent feedback from each student. Would definitely recommend and will be using NAVSAR again soon. Couldn’t have asked for a better course.

I am so pleased that I found NAVSAR in the Pwllheli Marina Handbook. Had a great couple of days on the water with Jon. He was a great instructor, very knowledgeable, calm and experienced. I now feel confident to moor up my boat alongside using the engine. Jon also kindly re-rigged the ‘reefing’ lines and system for me. I will be contacting NAVSAR again early next year for some more tuition for my wife and I.

I found out about NAVSAR through my friends who have recently bought a boat and booked onto a course with NAVSAR. Had a great couple of days. Very enjoyable, very interactive. Matt was a very professional instructor and delivered an excellent course. I would recommend NAVSAR and would be keen to come back for more training in the future.

Great day, huge thanks. Together with Robert Owen Marine in Porthmadog, NAVSAR provided a great hassle free service from day 1. Sammo was a great instructor and very accommodating.

Training completed, now just need to acquire experience and sea hours!
Had a great day with Russ, he provided excellent training, taught me in a style which made it easy to understand and that ensured the day was extremely enjoyable. 
Great course ran by a very good guy, thanks.

Great course that exceeded my expectations. I don’t feel that any areas of the course could be improved. It was ideal and I will be referring my friends and colleagues also to NAVSAR. The centre is well equipped and gave me a really good insight as to what to expect in the real MCA exam. Jon is a great instructor and the mock exams that he runs on the last day are very realistic and beneficial. I would definitely not have passed without this course. My exam went very well in Southampton and I can’t thank Jon and NAVSAR enough.
