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.

Secondly have been to poole, the channel islands and france excellent trip! Plus some fun family days out on dolphin for lunch in Lymington and swimming with the kids. I can throughly recommend solent charters!

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.

Not worth trying elsewhere
I found Solent when searching to do my Powerboat 2 course but I really wanted nearer Essex rather than Southampton. On searching all over UK possibles I booked with them for convenience. The course was so fab and the guys that run Solent are so customer friendly that I went back a few times. By now I have done my comp crew and day skipper all with them and they tailored various packages to suit my budget and timeframe. I have met and made friends with several course buddies who came from all over the UK as they'd found Solent to be great. As a canny Scot I am not one to part with my money foolishly and I insist on service from everywhere I go. These guys just get it right! and to boot have wider range of craft and trainers than any other I can find. Haver tried a charter with my wife and kids - they loved it. Day with an instructor one on one - I loved it! I intend to book a charter with friends again early in 2014 and will keep going back.

Great for a large group, definitely recommended!
During our trip down south with treated ourself with a Jet Ski day at Solent Boat Charters and enjoyed every minute! Although we took it in turns on the jet skis, those not on the skis were treated to a ride on the speedboat which could certainly keep up! Lunch halfway through the day was good. Highly recommended for a large group of friends looking for a great time.

Team Building Day September 2013
Wow, what a day! The marina itself was impressive & then we saw our yacht, Moonlight- stunning! The staff were amazing, very friendly, quickly putting us all at ease with a safety briefing & a champagne & croissant breakfast. The facilities on board are first class: ivory leather upholstery & highly polished wood & we were free to move around between the upper & lower decks. We went over to the Isle of Wight for lunch, some sailing on the yacht, others, myself included, took the more adventurous option & went on the rib! It was an amazing journey, very fast & exciting! I definitely needed my waterproof coat though! Lunch at The Folly Inn, Cowes was great! The food is really good & there is a really cosy atmosphere. I took the more relaxed trip back, aboard Moonlight. I sat on the upper deck sipping wine as the the world passed by. A truly luxurious way to spend an afternoon! Thanks to Matt, Sean & Beau for a fabulous day! Hope to return next year.

Great Experiece and Value
With so many activities to do with Solent Boat Charters, we went for the whole package with a trip on the ribs which was a fantastic ride. The views from the rib were awesome and the speeds at which those things can travel is great for the adrenaline junkie. The boats look stunning and if I could afford one I'd have one for myself, definitely riding in style. The whole complete package is defiantly worth looking at. We included lunch and stopped at a very nice restaurant at the half way point. If your looking to do something in Southampton. This is definitely one of the things to put on your list. Very organised and helpful team, who know what they are talking about. We are even looking at booking on the training days that they offer we enjoyed it that much.

Fabulous Day
We were lucky enough to attend Solent Boat Charters in September for a corporate team building day, whilst the weather was overcast and a little cold this certainly did not dampen our day, We were greeted by Matt, Beau and Sean with Champagne and croissants before going through the safety procedure, we enjoyed time on a rib (which was very fast) and changed half way through the day to a luxury yacht, we were taken to the Folly Inn at Cowes and had a wonderful lunch then back on the solent for a fun afternoon on the water, our every wimp was catered for with wine and chocolates on the way back, What a day to remember, highly recommended.Thank you Matt for making it a day to remember. We are hoping to return in the summer next year for another memorable day.
