Calling all PPCDL holders,

In the spirit of promoting safe and competent seamanship in Singapore, TBSA are pleased to announce the launch of our “Pleasure Craft Competency” program which will be held every Saturday of the month. 

Time: 8:00am - 10:00am                                           Date: Every Saturday of the month

Venue: Republic of Singapore Yacht Club                Cost: SGD 80                                       Pax per boat: 4

Each trip will last 2 hours, and each PPCDL holder will have the opportunity to skipper the boat for up to 30mins. Areas that will be covered as part of the trip include the following:

  1. Pre-departure safety checks
  2. Navigation and environmental awareness
  3. Boat handling
  4. Emergency situation handling
  5. Anchoring
  6. Berthing

As part of the program, each participant will be provided with a log book, where you will record details of the trip and the feedback from our skipper for future reference. Once you have satisfied all criteria of a competent skipper, you will be upgraded to a self-drive charterer in our system and have access to very attractive self-charter rates.

Welcome to TheBoatShopAsia, where you can find the right boat, at the right price, and for the right lifestyle, for you! Our vision is to make the boating lifestyle accessible and affordable to anyone who loves the sea and offshore activities. Whether it is a boat charter for a leisurely cruise around Singapore or choosing the right pleasure craft for your budget, TheBoatShopAsia is the latest innovative marine hub in Singapore to help you make your dream lifestyle a reality today.
We've been running our "Basic Competency Program" for over a year and we have quite a number of PPCDLers who have completed the course and are taking out the Cuddies, Bowriders and Walkarounds reguarly on bareboat charters.  Over the last month, we have introduced a cabin cruiser and fly bridges into our charter fleet. We have also created a new course called the "Advanced Competency Program" to equip our members with advanced skills of driving a larger cabin cruiser. Those who complete the course can bareboat (self drive) charter our cabin cruisers which is an ask by many. 

We also run skippered charters with our yachts and have had 3 yachts go out during the SG50 weekend. Let us know if you want to make the cruise alot more special and we will be more than happy to assist. We have had doggie outings, birthday celebrations and even a special proposal done on our boats! We also participated in a Charity Cruise organized by RSYC. Click below to view our video of the trip.
