  • Solitaire Charters

    Our guests have many different reasons for chartering with us and we work hard to ensure that the day is special for you.

    Whether it's a private party, hen day, corporate entertaining, dive charter, business meetings or media wishing to cover a day's racing from the water, we have the space and flexibility to accommodate you on one of our Solent yacht charter packages.

    Solitaire's home base is Royal Clarence Marina, opposite Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth, giving quick access for a whole range of Solent Yacht Charter packages.. Should you wish us to meet you at another port around the Solent or Isle of Wight we are easily able to arrange that.

    Our standard Solent Yacht Charter packages are:

    Full day charter 10am- 6pm (including continental breakfast and afternoon tea with champagne).
    Afternoon charter 1pm- 5pm (including afternoon tea with champagne).
    Sunset Solent Yacht Charter 7pm- 10pm (including champagne and nibbles).
    Special event charter (race days, Cowes fireworks, Bournemouth airshow).
    Dive charter to a wide variety of wreck sites for deep or shallow water dives.
    Media Charter/ Race Support.
    More Information regarding our Solent Yacht Charter Packages.

    Not everyone requires the use of the hot tub or jet ski. We prefer to keep the price of our charters as low as possible so you only pay for what you want. So we have removed the cost of these items from the basic price. Each cost £50 for the day-including fuel and buoyancy aid for jet ski and fresh towels for both.

    Our Captains have years of experience sailing this vessel and many others. They are qualified by the RYA to Yachtmaster Offshore standard or higher. All crew hold an International certificate of competence and all licenses are commercially endorsed. Both Captain and crew have completed RYA first aid courses, VHF courses and sea survival training. Their job is ultimately to keep everyone safe and the final decision rests with the Captain.

    Solitaire is fully covered by marine insurance for damage and loss, but also for third person accidents.

    Bad Weather- We try hard but so far we can't control the weather. We could offer you a refund if we are unable to sail, but where would that leave you for your event? Instead, we will refund you 35% of the price of your charter and allow you to use the boat for the whole time as planned. The weather may even clear up so we could go out in the afternoon. If the weather deteriorates while we are already out and we have to return early, we will refund you pro rata. In any event, you won't find yourselves stuck on the dockside having to make a rapid plan B.

    Lunch is not included in your Solent Yacht Charter price as some guests prefer to visit a restaurant or pub. However, we can provide a substantial and varied buffet lunch for £10 per person- please give at least 2 weeks notice if there are any food allergies in your party. Alternatively, you are welcome to bring your own lunch.

    To book, we only need a £100 deposit. Balance is payable 28 days in advance.
