"Our personal skill set was basic but after 4 sessions with Neil, we feel we have progressed in our proficiency and we have gained greater confidence in our own abilities, Neil has an easy going mentoring style which instils confidence. His training style is such that you do everything - Neil steps in and takes physical control only when absolutely necessary. The learning experience is also great fun...We can't recommend Neil highly enough. "

The Back Story...
Above and Beyond Boating was founded in 2011 to support Sydney-based boat owners to not just learn about boat handling or sailing, but also teach the wider skills needed to confidently and safely skipper their boats.

They have worked with thousands of boat owners assisting them achieving a wide range of boating dreams.

One of the Above and Beyond Boating philosophies is to assist their customers to step outside of their nautical comfort zones and ensure that they achieve the goals they dreamed of when they purchased the boat.

They bring the skills and experience of world-class trainers straight to your vessel.
