Safe Boating Basics

Mar 23, 2024
8:00 am-5:00 pm

MarineMax is teaming up with Boatwise to host a Safe Boating Basics Training Course on Saturday, March 23 from 8am-5pm at MarineMax in Danvers, Massachusetts.  Whether you're new to boating or a life-long boater in need of a refresher, we’re here to help you stay safe on the water this summer! Learn the aspects of boating safely and legally in ONE DAY of classroom instruction. A "must" for all boaters, all ages, not to mention this class usually lowers your boat insurance premium.  

There will be a 50 question NASBLA test at the end of the class which will result in a Certificate of Completion issued to each participant. Additionally, each participant will have the opportunity to take a 10 question Massachusetts Environmental Police test. Massachusetts approved for young operator's permit (age 12-16). Approved for all ages in Rhode Island. 

Class size is limited. To register for this event, please contact Jillian Sudo at 781.395.0050 or email to ensure that your spot is reserved. 

*Any class registration fees and/or deposits will be waived for customers who have purchased a new vessel through MarineMax Massachusetts locations. Contact Jillian Sudo for more information on processing your free registration for this course.
