  • Training with Phil Jackson of Suncoast gave us the confidence to use our boat in all conditions and to cruise new areas. The teaching was highly professional and informative but also relaxed and fun! If you have a boat, or are thinking of buying one, remember to invest a bit of money in yourself. Get confident, ring Suncoast.
