Renting a boat in Southampton

Southampton is a port city located on the southern coast of England in the county of Hampshire. Southampton has been an important port for centuries and was one of the most important ports in England during the Middle Ages. Southampton is also known for its association with sailing. The city has a long history of sailing and was once known as 'The Sailing Capital of the World'. Many famous sailors have come from Southampton, including Sir Francis Drake and Sir Richard Grenville. Today, the city still maintains this strong heritage and many regattas are organised here every year. So what are you waiting for? It’s time to book your boat rental in Southampton now!

How much does it cost to rent a boat in Southampton?

The price of a yacht charter in Southampton depends on a wide range of factors such as the type of boat, the season and the duration of your trip as well as any other additional services which you may require. This can include having a skipper onboard, for instance, or even hiring water sports equipment!

Is it possible to rent a boat in Southampton with or without a skipper?

When you book a yacht charter in Southampton, you have the possibility of having a skipper onboard. A skippered charter is ideal for those who wish to sit back and relax throughout the trip, making the most of every moment without needing to worry. On the other hand, if you wish to explore the stunning south coast of England at your own pace, a bareboat charter can be the one for you!

What to do in Southampton?

With your boat hire in Southampton, there are endless possibilities of things to do along the South Coast of England. Here are just a few of our favourites.

No visit to Southampton would be complete without sailing across the Solent to the neighbouring Isle of Wight. This island is one of the UK's top destinations for visitors and was declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. The Isle of Wight is known for its majestic scenery, which you will be able to discover from the deck of your boat. We recommend exploring The Needles, a unique rock formation comprised of three stacks of chalk that rise out of the sea. The Isle of Wight is also home to many coastal ravines, known in the South of England as “chines”. Chines are a part of the island folklore and used to be associated with stories of shipwrecks, fishing and smuggling.

Just a short journey by boat from Southampton, you can visit the charming seaside town of Poole. Poole is renowned for its pretty harbour and lovely sandy beaches nearby. Some of the most famous ones include Sandbanks Peninsula and Studlands, which are often considered to be some of the UK's prettiest beaches. There's also plenty to see and do in the town itself, with a great selection of shops, restaurants and cafés to enjoy.

From Poole, you can sail west towards the Jurassic Coast. This coastline is simply breathtaking, with towering cliffs, sheltered coves and beautiful sandy beaches. Some of the main sights include Durdle Door, a natural arch carved of limestone cliffs and Lulworth Cove, a pretty beach nestled between cliffs. Many of these rock formations were created during the Jurassic period, hence the reason why this stretch of coastline bears the name.
