Your Charter Crew

solent charter boat Skipper

Included in the cost of each charter is a Skipper and a crew member.

Our Chief skipper is Henry. 20 years cruising the Solent and surrounding areas means there are few places he hasn't visited. Restaurants and pubs can be recommended based on personal experience and an itinerary drawn up to suit your particular likes and requirements.

Qualifications include a commercially endorsed Yachtmaster offshore skippers licence, sea survival course, first aid training, VHF radio licence including DSC and the RYA Professional Practices and Responsibilites certificate. In addition as per Marine and Coastguard requirements a current medical certificate is held.

When not out on the water Henry has a love of cars and has driven Porsche 911 GT3 cup cars in races up to and including 24 hour endurance events. He enjoys travelling the world with a particular love of Asia, good food and meeting new people. He is married to Sharon who sometimes crews with him and has a daughter Emily after whom the boat is named !

Your crew is there to handle ropes for the skipper when berthing and ensure your safety whilst under way. They will also make sure you are comfortable and well cared for throughout the charter.

During overnight charters crew members will use the twin mid cabin leaving the master cabin and VIP forward double cabins available for guests.

Covid-19 Coronavirus Notice
It has been a pretty miserable 12 months but hopefully there does seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel. The prospect of being able to enjoy time on the water again is most welcome. With uncertainties surrounding international travel options within the UK are likely to be in high demand. We have not increased prices for the 2021 season

We are currently taking bookings from June onwards. In the event these can not go ahead we will refund any money paid in full. Charters will operate subject to prevailing government guidelines in force at the time. Feel free to call us on 07525 622268 with any questions you might have.
