Locations /Southampton Rib Charter
The most important commercial shipping port on the South Coast, Southampton Water is busy with liners, oil tankers, container ships, car transporters, tug boats and high speed ferries, all vying for water space with tall ships, yachts, powerboats and Ribs.
Centre of the Solent
A great departure point for Rib Charter or Bareboat Rib Charter (without a skipper), Southampton is at the centre of the Solent giving easy access to all of the most popular destinations including Cowes, Portsmouth and the Hamble.
Southampton lies at the end of Southampton Water which provides a large span of open water enjoying shelter from the prevailing westerly wind. Although not attractive in any conventional sense, the docks, oil refinery and industry do provide a very interesting backdrop.
Southampton vies with Portsmouth to host major maritime events. The last Clipper around the world race departed with much fanfare from Southampton with an aircraft carrier escort. We had several Ribs taking part in the festivities.
There is insufficient demand to warrant a permanent presence for us in Southampton however we run a flat pricing sructure so it costs no more to operate from Southampton if desired. Typically we operate from Ocean Village or Town Quay marina. Please enquire for bareboat delivery costs.
Solent Rib Charter own a fleet of Ribs available for Bareboat Rib hire or Bareboat Rib charter (without a skipper) anywhere in the UK or Europe.
