RIB Charter

Bareboat RIB Boat Hire - for as little as £300 per day!

Marine Matters Charter is dedicated to the development of our training centre clients and consequently bareboat charter is available to our clients with a Powerboat level 2 certificate from our River Hamble location. 

Enjoy the delights of The Solent with family & friends, going to idyllic anchorages & beautiful harbours to simply chill out or enjoy the hospitality at one of the dozens of restaurants. All this is available within an hours easy boating of our River Hamble base, at the heart of The Solent. Best of all you can do this with your own skills as skipper at the most competitive rates:

£300.00 inc VAT + fuel per day - Bareboat GRAND G650 RIB Charter.

For Powerboat Level 2 holders that have not trained with Marine Matters there will be a RIB familiarisation session at an additional charge of £60 inc VAT before the first charter only, consequent use will not require further familiarisation sessions.

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. When you hire our RIB boat you will be 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 - whats not to like!

For suitably experienced Powerboat Level 2 holders that have not trained with Marine Matters there will be a RIB familiarisation session at an additional charge of £60 inc VAT before the first charter only, consequent use will not require further familiarisation sessions. However, we reserve the right to refuse to allow you to take the RIB for your charter if you are unable to demonstrate safe practice. Under these circumstances the £60 charge will stand but you will recieve a full refund of your charter fee. 

Booking & Terms and Conditions

Booking could not be easier; simply call our office to discuss available dates, no membership fees or on going cost, simply "pay and play". But, remember this is a busy boat 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 Powerboat level 2 Skippers, their friends and families.
