Rib Charter /Skippered Rib Charter
Skippered Rib Charters for Private Groups
Take your family and friends on a private Skippered Rib charter for a special day out on the Solent. Our experienced skippers will help tailor a memorable day for your party. You may already have a plan in mind which we will happily follow, however clients are often keen to tap into the local knowledge of the our skippers who 'work' the Solent every day.
Make the most of your day
The wind and the tide will have a major effect on the conditions that you will encounter; working closely with our skipper will help make the most of your day working in the conditions that best suit your party.

A broad range! We have as many clients who know nothing of the water as those who are seasoned sailors. Often a private booking is to celebrate an event - milestone birthdays and anniversaries seem popular. We have a full range of life jackets for children from toddlers up and good quality breathable oilskins are also available.
We have hosted a 100th birthday party and carried a baby just three weeks old, so the age range is significant. All age groups are welcome and we are able to configure the day to suit a wide variety of tastes from teenage adrenalin junkies to golden wedding anniversaries!
Alternative to bareboat
Some clients who are initially keen on chartering a bareboat (self drive) opt for a skippered boat so that they can make the most of their day without worrying about finding a mooring. With our skipper on board, all liability for loss or damage is carried by the company.
