Locations /Portsmouth Rib Charter
Home of the Royal Navy
The most attractive of the major UK commercial ports, Portsmouth is best known as the home of the Royal Navy's surface fleet. The long naval presence is reflected in the historic ships (including Nelson's 'Victory') and unspoilt Georgian dockyards.
Portsmouth is a city that has arisen from the ashes of carpet bombing, through the disaster of mid twentieth century architecture to its current vibrant renaissance. Exciting development seems to be taking place everywhere. Gunwharf Quay marina is part of an inspired retail development and adjacent to the landmark Spinnaker tower.
Premier waterside city
Portsmouth seems determined to be the premier UK coastal city, a reputation enhanced by the hosting of the 2015 and 2016 America's Cup events. Porstmouth has encouraged Sir Ben Ainslie to build the Landrover BAR team headquarters in a stunning waterside development.
A great departure point for Rib Charter or Bareboat Rib Charter (without a skipper), Portsmouth is well placed within the eastern Solent with excellent access to many of the most popular Solent destinations.
The harbour itself is interesting, well worth a tour to see the fleet, dockyards, commercial port and the upper reaches to Portchester Castle and Port Solent Marina, to say nothing of the three imposing Palmerston forts guarding the approaches.
There is insufficient demand for us to base Ribs at Portsmouth but we operate a flat pricing structure throughout the Solent with no additional cost to starting a charter in Portsmouth. Please enquire for bareboat delivery costs. Typically our Ribs operate from Gunwharf Quay or just as easily Gosport / Haslar marinas on the Eastern side of the harbour.
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.
