Thought a Solent Yacht Charter was only for the rich and famous? Well think again as this experience will see you sailing in the Solent on a skippered yacht on a half or full day excursion or for that extra ‘wow’ factor an evening sail so you can lap up the views as the sun starts setting over the water.
During the summer months there really is nothing more relaxing than taking to the seas in a fancy ocean-going yacht. The idea behind these charter experiences is that they serve as a great introduction to yachting if you want to get involved with the actual sailing or you can just relax and gaze out across the Solent. We particularly love the evening sails when the waters are calmer and quieter so you can soak up the last of the evening sunshine from the deck of the yacht that you have ‘chartered’ from the marina on the Solent at Hamble.
These super 36ft ocean going yachts are large enough to accommodate seven novice yacht lovers under the watchful eye of the yacht’s master skipper whose role is to sail the vessel out of Hamble and onto the waters of the Solent or Southampton so you can experience the sheer bliss of being out on a yacht charter in the evening when most of the tourists are long gone or during the day to mingle with other water craft and see all the daytime activity.
Of course you are perfectly welcome to simply sit back and enjoy the sail or you can ‘have a go’ as an active crew member onboard to help keep this 36ft yacht on course. Your skipper will show you what needs to be done and we’ve heard he’s full of anecdotes and fascinating yachting facts too (like explaining how a yacht can sail faster then the wind!) to keep you entertained.
Your Solent yacht charter sets sail from Hamble and lasts around two hours for the sunset cruise or a half or full day for the daytime Solent sail. It’s totally up to you whether you get involved in sailing the yacht on the Solent or if you prefer to just relax and take it all in. Your skipper will also point out all the sights for you before you head back to the harbour with a nice chilled glass of vino in hand or if you’re on the day sail there’s a steady supply of hot drinks and biccies. Absolute sailing bliss on the Solent onboard a superb ocean going luxury yacht!!
