Locations /Hamble Rib Charter


Hamble river is another important location in the Sailor's guide to the universe! The easily navigable tidal reaches have an astonishing array of marinas, yacht clubs and local authority moorings boasting several thousand boats.

Marinas and boat yards

Hamble marinas include Hamble Point at the entrance to the river, Port Hamble, Mercury, Universal, Swanick, Elephant boatyard, Deacons, Cabin boatyard, R.K.Marine boatyard and Eastlands boatyard.

Yacht and sailing clubs

Several yacht clubs and sailing clubs are also based on the river including the Royal Southern Yacht Club, the Royal Air Force Yacht Club, Warsash Sailing Club and Hamble River Sailing Club.


Ideal for the central Solent, the Hamble is convenient for journies to Southampton, Portsmouth and Cowes. The mouth of the Hamble is in Southampton water which whilst industrial, does provide a large body of sheltered water.


Our Ribs aren't berthed in the River but do operate from all locations within the Hamble on demand. We have a flat pricing structure and the start location does not have any impact on cost. For bareboats, please talk to us about delivery charges to the location that best suits you.

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.
