The Performance Boating School has filled a need in our industry by teaching boat owners the proper and safe operation of their vessels. Performance Boat School owner and founder Tres Martin started in the boating industry in the late 70's and has earned numerous racing victories including World and National Championships. Boat School partner Brad Schoenwald, is a retired career Coast Guard Officer, licensed master and trained in instructional technologies.
Performance Boat School skill based programs begins by covering the basics of boating safety and related equipment, from proper lifejackets and fire extinguishers to ignition stop switch lanyards. Topics include rules of the waterway, boat maintenance, occupant safety and a complete explanation of the dynamics of hull design. Time is spent on the specifics of trimming, tabbing, acceleration, deceleration, turning, wave and wake crossing and how to take corrective action in the event of a problem. On day two, the students get a first hand demonstration of everything they have learned in a real world environment. The students are shown how to operate essential equipment, conduct pre-launch checks, basic maintenance, and potential problem areas. Then each student must properly execute all of the performance fundamentals and complete maneuvers in their boats until they are able to demonstrate proper execution to the satisfaction of the instructors.

Tres Martins Performance Boat School is the only skill based boating school in the world to be recognized by the insurance industry and boat manufactures alike.

"The knowledge and experienced training that Tres and Brad offer is essential in today's high-speed performance boating, that is why we are proud to bring this into our New 32 SC Shadow Cat." Ultra Boats John West
