At the commencement of both skippered and bare boat charter each yacht receives a complementary ‘starter pack’ of tea, coffee, sugar, milk, tea towels and all cleaning materials. Equipment such as wet weather gear can be hired at minimal cost. Your yacht will be supplied with fully filled diesel and water tanks, gas cylinders and be fully cleaned. One bottle of gas is included. You return the yachts ‘as found’ and clean down ready for the next charter. If you do not wish to clean down – cleaning can be undertaken at a charge of £65 . You will, however, need to supply your own towels, pillows and bedding.

The home marina base at MDL on the Hamble has ample free parking and the complex is 24hr staffed, there are excellent showers, toilets, laundry, a restaurant, bar, chandlery / marine shop. There is 240 volt electric to the boats at the home marina and berthing here is free.

Bare Boat Charter Experience Level Required

Bare boat yacht charter is available for those who are familiar with yachts, hold a RYA Day Skipper qualification or equivalent standard with appropriate tidal experience having been skipper in tidal waters plus a VHF operators licence.  (You must prove / demonstrate  experience as skipper in tidal environments). You may more than likely be asked for your tidal mile experience / or a sailing CV along with other experience indicators such as previous charters, duration and their locations, size of yachts used, any yacht ownership plus the experience level of your First Mate. We are then able to form an understanding of your overall experience and suitability to charter any particular vessel for any particular area / voyage. If you are in any doubt about your experience level, your tidal experience as skipper, lack of paper qualifications then please discuss with us or drop us your sailing CV and we can then have a chat / take a view or ask our insurers to approve – your previous experience counts for a lot!
For any racing charter we require your racing CV to be approved by the vessels insurers prior to acceptance.
