iPowerboat Ltd is proud to annouce that it has become a member of the Professional Charter Association (PCA), who provides "an independent voice for the boat charter industry".


Commercial vessel operations are a big part of our business, and its only correct that we help and support associations that have an impact on our operations.


The Professional Charter Association (PCA) was formed in 1991 by a small group of professional charter skippers and owners whose principal activity was that of skippered charter in UK domestic and overseas waters for both the private and corporate sectors.


The Association's aims are:


~To promote and protect the interests of its members;

~To ensure the safety of passengers and crews on board member vessels at all times;

~To ensure that the interests of the charterer are upheld;

~To ensure that member vessels are equipped and maintained to the highest standards and operated within or exceeding national, local and harbour regulations.


Since the formation of the PCA, the UK yacht charter industry has seen a significant increase in legislation governing its activities, from the introduction of the 'Codes of Practice for Small Commercial Vessels' in 1994 to legislation concerning the provision of alcohol on board charter vessels and the increased burdens of insurance and liability. Over this period the PCA has helped its members with advice on all aspects of charter operation. The Association also provides an excellent networking platform as well as a source of skippers, crew and other related contacts.


There are many new owners entering the charter market as well as established operators to whom the PCA can provide a valuable source of vital information and the assurance to their clients that the membership of a credible associate body provides.

Oban Duncan, the 2015 & 2017 RYA Scotland regional Honda Youth RIB Challenge champion was representing iPowerboat Ltd and her country today at the National Championships in front of a large crowd at TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show.


Oban was first out at 09:00, and set an excellent time, in fact, her time was unbeaten for many hours. Oban's outstanding time was narrowly beaten by a competitor, and she landed herself with a very respectable 2nd place in the under 12 category.


Oban has become a fantastic ambassador for the sport, and has been invited to events in Sri Lanka, and the P1 Powerboat UK series to promote young people within the sport.


Over the past few years, Ryan has spent countless hours, and travelled thousands of miles to train Oban to helm RIB's in a fast, fun and safe manner, and we are so proud of what they have both achieved.


For 2018, we have some very special events lined up to further Oban's training. We shall up date you once things are planned.
