Wow, what a year! With our last course finished today, 2019 draws to an end for us. The company has had another fantastic year training more students than ever before, which is something we are very proud of.

Our office is closed over the festive period, although the team is hard at work as 2020 kicks off on the 6th January with around 80 persons being trained by our team in January alone.

We would like to wish all of our customers, both past and future a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year.

We would also like to thank our instructors & suppliers, whom without their support, hardwork, and passion for what they do, we'd not be in the position that we are today, but we want to extend our thanks to you, and look forward to working with you all in 2020.

From all of the team.

iPowerboat have been working hard over the winter season to bring you a state of the art training RIB.

"Tamo" is our #Redbay 7.4m that has been through a major refit and conversion to allow her to be powered by a 300hp #Mercury #Verado outboard. The refit included;

☑️Brand new polyurethane tubes

☑️Full re-wire, including heater & underwater lighting.

☑️Brand new #Simrad touchscreen plotter

☑️Latest #Icom VHF radio

☑️Simrad total side scan echo sounder

☑️Simrad radar


☑️Keel guard

☑️New #Bramber twin axle road trailer

☑️New cover, jockey seats and upholstery

☑️All brand new safety equipment

No corners have been cut, and only the best equipment available has been fitted. This boat has been designed and built by trainers for training in the harsh environment that is the west coast of Scotland, and we believe this makes it one of Scotland's best training RIBs 🚤.

Tamo will be at the #SpringBoatSalesWeekend at #InverkipMarina on the 27th & 28th April if you want to see her up close.

We owe a huge amount of thanks to all our friends/suppliers that allowed us to get this major rebuild/refit completed.
