What you need to charter from Marine Matters

RYA training is the prerequisite to the hire of our boats as we will only charter to clients we have trained. This ensures that the boat is operated by a suitably qualified Skipper. More importantly if you complete RYA training with us when you return to charter you will already be comfortable with the boat. Returning to a hire boat you know safe in the knowledge that the Marine Matters team will be on the end of the phone to assist with those hints and tips that inevitably come up.

Booking could not be easier; simply call our office to discuss available dates. But, remember these are busy boats so the more notice you can give us the more likely we are to provide the charter dates of your choice. 

Terms and conditions can be downloaded from here but in précis you will have full access to the boat with the only operating restriction being that the vessel must stay in The Solent, be in a Solent marina overnight and you must not be at sea during the hours of darkness. This is ideal for Day Skipper practical qualified Skippers and Powerboat level 2 Skippers, their friends and families.
