From the moment you first get in touch with us to when you finish your charter.
We are concerned that you choose the right yacht for you, that you are kept well informed of when and where to join your yacht, that if you have asked us to provide a skipper or an instructor we provide the right one for you, that the yachts are well maintained and your safety given the highest regard, that we provide you with the best waterproofs, that you get what you want and more out of any sailing you do with us.
We want people to give people the opportunity to experience what it is about sailing that we love so much -
the adventure, the thrill and satisfaction of the arrival, the 360 degree horizon, the speed, the ever changing colours or the sea and the sky, the camaraderie, the challenge, the sound of water bubbling by, the escape, the freedom, the little surprises that crop up, the solitude, because 2 days on a boat is like 3 weeks on a beach in terms of clearing your head, the fresh salty smell, the sight of a dolphin, the sight of a whale!, the bond that strikes up with others on the water, the timelessness, the teamwork, the tan.
At the end of the day we put our money where our mouth is and offer a guarantee that offers 2 things:
If you are not happy with your charter then we are not happy and if we can't put it right to YOUR satisfaction we give you your money back;
We promise to respond to your enquiries promptly and are here to offer unlimited support and advice to our customers forever;
The Solent and surrounding area provides a fantastic cruising ground. There are numerous harbours, marinas, anchorages to visit, all within short distances. Places such as Hamble, Cowes, Beaulieu, Newtown, Lymington, Yarmouth, Wootton Creek, Portsmouth, Bembridge. If you fancy going further afield outside of the Solent there is Langstone and Chichester to the east and Poole and Weymouth to the west. Further than that are France, The Channel Islands and the West Country, all of which are within reach if chartering for a week or more.
The Solent itself offers a degree of shelter from the prevailing South Westerly weather. So when it is blowing hard out in the Channel it will likely not be so strong within the Solent and the sea state will be much calmer than out of the Solent.
