Yachtforce Yacht Charter & Sailing Events specialize in affordable yacht charters and sailing events from Mercury Yacht Harbour, Hamble giving excellent access access to the Solent, the UK South Coast or even further afield to France and the Channel Isles if it suits you. Their yachts are well equipped with heating, top equipment and all electronics including radar so that your trip will be comfortable, safe and fun. Yachts are available from 32ft - 40ft.
Skippered Yacht charters are a great idea for special events like social gatherings, hen or stag do's or birthday parties. They can take care of all the arrangements for you so all you need to do is worry about having a brilliant time and enjoying the water and the views.
In a weekend you can explore the Solent area, watch many of the incredible sailing events that go on, moor at different ports or anchor off secluded beaches for a picnic lunch and a swim.
In a weekend you can find more remote places or bustling towns with cracking pubs and restaurants. Cowes, Yarmouth, Portsmouth, Lymington, Southampton, the Beaulieu River or Newtown Creek... Your choice.
To give you an idea a 4 day charter would get you further afield to places such as Poole or Chichester and 5 or more days would let you get to France - but you would need to have some experienced sailors on board to cross the channel.
If you possess the right sailing skills or qualifications (Day Skipper or 3 yrs experience of similar vessel size) you can charter her without a skipper (bareboat) - or if you do not have any experience we can supply a skipper to sail you around and teach you at an additional £160 per day.
Skippers need to be fed and watered at your expence and have their own cabin. A good maximum number to have on a skippered charter would be 5 in the group plus the skipper.
At the commencement of both skippered and bareboat charter each boat 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. You return as found and clean down. If you wish cleaning can be undertaken at a charge of £60.
You will, however, need to supply your own pillows and bedding. These can be purchased locally from the 24hr Tesco Superstore just 5 minutes away.
