Regularly chartered by professional sports’ photographers, film crews and artists for prestigious events such as the annual Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week Regatta, the Super Yacht Cup, Brambles Cricket Match and the 2012 J Class Regatta. You can charter a rib for a blast around the Solent and be part of the action. Alternatively, make a special occasion really memorable with a thrill ride or champagne cruise on one of the Solent’s many tributaries. Blast across the Solent to the Hamble, or Beaulieu Rivers, or stay on the Island side and explore the coast, River Medina up to Newport, Osborne Bay, Wootton Creek, or Newtown Creek. Stop off at the Folly Inn, or take a picnic. Birthdays, Anniversaries, stag events, or family days out, all are more than a memory in our company.

Customers keep on coming to Mark for many reasons, one being that he is always happy to discuss at length, the details, to ensure that he can personalize their charter or maintenance work to their specific needs. This can be a small one off job, or ongoing caretaker services.
