Bareboat Solent Motorboat Charter

WHAT IS BAREBOAT MOTORBOAT CHARTER?

Bareboat Motorboat Charter allows you hire a motorboat to self-drive, without a skipper or instructor on board. It is effectively your boat for the day, without the costs and maintenance of boat ownership. After much demand from our RYA Day Skipper students, we have gained exclusive use of a great sports cruiser. This gives the opportunity to explore the Solent and its surrounding areas, whilst consolidating new skills independently.

Why not charter a bareboat motorboat to enjoy one of the many events that take place each year on or around the Solent?  Please note that you will require a valid RYA Day Skipper Motorboat certificate to book a Bareboat Motorboat Charter.

We also offer Skippered Motorboat Charter for those who want to enjoy a Solent sailing experience, but are not an experienced sailor. One of our professional skippers will sail you to the destinations of your choice along the south coast, including the Isle of Wight, the River Hamble and Lymington.

Others use Bareboat Motorboat Charter to enjoy one of the many events that take place each year on or around the Solent. Please note that you will require a valid RYA Day Skipper Motorboat certificate in order to book a Bareboat Motorboat Charter.
