Skippered Yacht Charter


There are many reasons why you may opt for a skippered yacht charter apart from the obvious which is that you may not know how to sail !! Even those that have sailed before often enjoy the peace of mind having a professional skipper onboard.

A skippered yacht charter in the Solent brings together a group of friends or family for a fun day or days out on the water. It doesn’t just have to be for a celebration. You might simply fancy the idea of giving sailing a go for the first time.

Perhaps you are planning a holiday abroad and want to get in a little practice beforehand especially if you haven’t been on the water for a while. Alternatively you may want to take some colleagues or clients from work for a reward or for an activity day / team building day.

The duration of your charter is entirely up to you, from a day to a whole week there are plenty of wonderful places to visit around the Solent. 

Make An Enquiry

We are totally flexible and can even accommodate the skipper ashore if you want the yacht to yourself in the evenings.

We can also provide a range of catering options or you are very welcome to bring your own supplies. Many people prefer to moor up and eat ashore.

So whatever your requirements just let us know.
