In Massachusetts, powerboats may not be operated by children under the age of 12 years unless accompanied by a competent adult. Youth between the ages of 12 – 15 years may operate a power boat alone if they have completed the BSS class and been awarded the BSS Certificate.
PWC's (personal watercraft, i.e. jet skis) may not be operated by anyone under the age of 18, however, PWC's may be operated by youths between the ages of 16-17 if they have completed the BSS class and been awarded the BSS Certificate.
We encourage husband/wife; father / daughter (son)
teams. Although there is no age prerequisite, we suggest that your children
be at least 12 years old.
New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Connecticut require you to have taken a Safe Boating Class before you can register and/or rent a boat.
