RYA VHF course, RYA PWC course & RYA First aid
I have been using Solent boat charters for all my training thus far, VHF, PWC & First aid courses were run to an excellent standard. Matthews team are second to none and are a one stop shop for all your RYA qualifications that you will require to be proficient on the water. They have provided confidence for me on the water by giving me the knowledge I require! I'm now very much considering powerboat L2 to add to my portfolio. Again thanks to be given to you Matthew for having an excellent training school.

Fantastic and pragmatic groundschool
Did the RYA First Aid course in the new classroom. Course was spot on - done a lot of these in the past and this one was pitched at the audience (commercial users) and very practical. Instructor was engaging and, above all, we all learned something, no matter how great our prior experience. Will definitely use again.

RYA Powerboat 2 training
I used Solent Boat Charters to do the RYA powerboat 2 course. The boats used for the training are excellent and the staff are very friendly and professional. One added bonus is being able to stay on board one of their motor cruisers overnight if you are on a 2 day course which saves the expense of a hotel. All in all an excellent place to train which I would definitely recommend to others without hesitation. Tony....

So good, we forgot how cold it was
My friend and I booked powerboat L2 course (2days) at the Boat Show at a great price. In return we got a detailed, tailored, 1 on 2 tutorial and plenty of practical experience, with some good tips thrown in. Throughly recommende.

Excellent place to learn
We had a great 2 days learning to drive a powerboat with the very patient Bo. he was excellent, explained everything and he calmness helped us learn rapidly. Staying the night for free on one of their "gin palaces" for free was an added bonus. thoroughly recommended

RYA jetski course
I booked my RYA jetski course through Solent charters and spent the day with them on the course The course was well structured with a good mix of practical and theory spread through the day, and although I have been jet skiing for years I left feeling that I had definitely benefitted from the day There equipment was in excellent condition and the instructor set a good pace for the day I also throughly enjoyed doing the course in the Solent and feel that anyone trying to do this course on a lake is really losing out I especially enjoyed the navigation part of the course and plotting a course though the Solent I will be looking to return in the near future to do my powerboat level 2, for no more reason than another throughly great day out on the Solent with Solent boat charters and their superb instructors

Outstanding Training & Bareboat Rib Charter
I had the pleasure of completing my RYA powerboat level 2, which was excellently delivered & brilliant fun! Everyone is really friendly & helpful, boats are top quality, & the facilities outstanding. So much so, that I came back & completed by RYA Intermediate Powerboat course with Matt, who is a top noch instructor. Plus free accommodation on board one of Matt's motor cruisers is offered, which cannot be beaten. I have now also bareboat chartered one of the 7.5m ribs, which is offered to anyone with PB2 or above, & the prices are excellent value. I would highly recommend Solent Boat Charters for all RYA training & charters, so much is on offer!!

RYA PWC Course - Excellent!
Did my RYA PWC course with Solent Charters in summer 2013. The course was run really well and did just what I wanted. 6 people using 3 jet skis, but being on the support rib was just as much, if not more, fun than riding the jet skis! A great day!

Excellent Bareboat Service
I chartered the Bavaria 37 from Matt and co for a weekend in The Solent with friends. The boat was smart, clean, well-equipped and in perfect order. The handover from Matt was professional, friendly and detailed. The boat sailed well and the whole experience was excellent value for money. I will use this company again.

I have spent a number of days with Solent Charters and I can't speak highly enough of them. From my initial contact for advice on which course would beat suit my needs to the 3 action packed days. My 1st day was a sailing experience which I had to change the date at the last minute due to a work commitment, this wasn't a problem for Solent Charters! When I arrived I found I was the only person on that day and they had decided to run the day just for me anyway! (To me this simply demonstrates the highest level of customer service.) I had paid £50 for a sailing experience however a distinct lack of wind prevented much sailing (although we tried!) so in addition to sailing, we ventured out on the Jet skis and also 'Storm' I have no doubt that I alone had probably used more in fuel than the the £50 I had paid for the day. My next 2 days were the Powerboat Level 2 course, again excellent instruction, instructor ratio was spot on given lots of time at the controls. A perfect experience. I am now looking forward to taking up as part of their newly launched Powerboat Club! For anything boating, it simply isn't necessary to look anywhere other than Solent Charters.

First Class
Visited Solent charters back in July 2013 for a one day private tuition course. I would like to say a big thank you to Robin our instructor. Really great day and this guy knows his stuff. The fairline fantom seemed a huge boat to train on at the start of the day. By the afternoon with robins guidance we were confidently moving and docking against the pontoons with ease. Overall a well run company and would highly recomend to others.

Weekend Bareboat Charter
We chartered Jaynie for the weekend in September 2013. She was very well maintained and nventory was comprehensive. The admin was very smooth; as were the handovers at each end of the charter. We would definitely use Solent Charters again and hope to in 2014.

Lovely yacht, excellent condition
I chartered Jaynie, a Moody S31 in October. The handover was very thorough and efficient. She is in fabulous condition and has a higher spec than is required by the charter regs (eg she has an EPIRB). A proper sailor's yacht. I would recommend her as ideal for a sailing couple, small family, or for two couples who are friendly. An absolute cracker of a yacht!

Hen Party Day Out
We had a fabulous day out on a motor cruiser to the Isle of Wight. Matthew & his staff were lovely, the boat immaculate & the drinks flowed. They provided an ENORMOUS buffet lunch which catered for all dietary requirements & nothing was too much trouble. We felt very special & well looked after. It was that good we plan to have a reunion on one of their boats next year. Highly recommend.

Winter weekend sailing
Booked a weekend charter mid November just to get out on the water, Solent Charters produced a great boat, clean, tidy and with everything working, just ready to sail away. Just five of us on board Gemini, a Bavaria 37, so plenty of space, had a thoroughly relaxing time only slight problem was lack of wind, but beautiful sunny days with a chill in the air, just right for some newbies, looking forward to the next trip in March.marcsheep

Sailing Boat Charter
Myself and 4 friends chartered the Bavaria 37 'Gemini' for a weekend, on a bareboat basis. The boat was clean and well equipped. The team at Solent Charters had the boat ready at the agreed time. Marina berth was good and easily accessible. The drop off was also efficiently and quickly completed. We found the whole exercise to be completely trouble free. The best bit was the price - easily the best value we have found in the area (Southampton/Portsmouth/Gosport).

Great Bareboat Charter
I chartered a yacht for a weekend from Solent Boat Charters. The handover on Friday night at Ocean Village in Southampton was good, and the boat was very well appointed and scrupulously clean. We had an enjoyable sail with no problems whatsoever, and I'd thoroughly recommend this as a great break.
