Locations /Cowes Rib Charter


The epicentre of UK sailing, Cowes is more national institution than a place. It is dependent to this day on the seafaring and sailing communities as well as the all important Cowes Week and a myriad of smaller regattas.

Panerai Cup

The Panerai Cup in July each year - see What's On, is our 'selection' of the other major annual Cowes based regattas. The Panerai is a true visual treat with a wonderful entry of classic racing yachts, and a Rib is the best possible way to follow the action.

Centre of the Solent

A great departure point for Rib Charter or Bareboat Rib Charter (without a skipper), Cowes is at the very centre of the Solent giving easy access to all of the most popular destinations.

Cowes Harbour

The harbour is the town, and thus a great place to explore by Rib as well as journeying up the Medina river through endless moorings, historic boat yards and past yachty landmarks such as the Folly Inn with it's own pier.

Cowes Yacht Haven

Our company is not based in Cowes but for skippered charter there is no cost difference in starting from Cowes. Typically we operate from the Yacht Haven right next to the High Street but will happily start from any point.


Plesase enquire about delivery charges for starting a bareboat charter from Cowes. Many bareboat charter clients who holiday on the Island will chose Cowes as the overnight berth for the Rib not least because of its close proximity to Seaview.

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.
