Outgoing Handover Times
(Subject to availability)
At the commencement of both skippered and bare boat charter each yacht 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. One bottle of gas is included. You return the yachts ‘as found’ and clean down ready for the next charter. If you do not wish to clean down – cleaning can be undertaken at a charge of £65 . You will, however, need to supply your own towels, pillows and bedding.
Anti – Covid19 Measures. The compulsory disinfection fee £75 (Anti Covid 19 measures) applies to all charters during any periods of restrictions or advice by the Government and is carried out rigorously. If you wish us to clean down your yacht after charter, the ‘clean down’ fee applies in addition to the disinfection fee.
The home marina base at MDL on the Hamble has ample free parking and the complex is 24hr staffed, there are excellent showers, toilets, laundry, a restaurant, bar, chandlery / marine shop (now at Port Hamble).

Bare boat yacht charter is available for those who are familiar and experienced as Skipper with the size of yacht they wish to charter in tidal waters. The minimum of an (experienced) RYA Day Skipper qualification or equivalent standard PLUS appropriate tidal experience having been skipper previously in tidal waters, plus a VHF operator’s licence, is required. (You must prove / demonstrate experience as skipper in tidal environments).
You will be asked for documented tidal mile experience / or a sailing CV along with other experience indicators such as previous charters, duration and their locations, size of yachts used, any yacht ownership plus the experience level of your First Mate.
We are then able to form an understanding of your overall experience and suitability to charter any particular vessel for any particular area / voyage.
If you are in any doubt about your experience level, your tidal experience as skipper, lack of paper qualifications then please discuss with us or drop us your sailing CV and we can then have a chat / take a view or ask our insurers to approve – your previous experience counts for a lot! Please understand that we are obliged to ensure that any person wanting to charter is experienced in the waters that they wish to cruise. For any racing charter we require your racing CV to be approved by the vessels insurers prior to acceptance.
If You Do Not Have the Required Skipper Experience in Tidal Waters
Please see here for our Skippered charters. It may be that you simply require additional instruction, mentoring or guidance that we can provide. You will then have additional skills to give you confidence to charter in UK waters. https://yachtforce.co.uk/yacht-charter/skippered-yacht-charter/
