Solent Rib Charters are fast, fun, safe and reliable. With over 20 years of experience we know how to help you plan the perfect day out no matter what the occasion. From a family day of fun to a stag/hen-do to remember, we can ensure all of your group leave with a smile on their face wanting to come back for more! What better way to explore the beautiful and historic sights of The Solent than by high speed boat?!

Blast your way across to The Needles, the iconic landmark situated to the westerly tip of The Isle of Wight, then on your way back make a detour into Cowes, the island’s home for international yachting and stop for a pub lunch.

Haslar Marina, based just inside the mouth of Portsmouth Harbour on the Gosport side, is a popular starting location for our clients which is only a short 5 minute drive from any of Complete Holiday Homes properties. Securely park up in the marina car park and start the day off with hearty breakfast in The Boat House, where our skippers will meet you at an agreed time and brief you on the day ahead and then take you down to the Ribs.

From there you will slowly make your way out of the harbour while you get comfortable and when clear of the harbour entrance the engines are opened up and the fun begins. And what fun you will have !

Our charters are available all year round and we can operate whatever the weather, rainy and choppy conditions only adds to the excitement of the day. We have full sets of wet weather gear, to be worn over the top of your normal clothing, which will keep your guests dry, warm and comfortable. High winds that cause unsafe conditions are the only weather implications that will stop us from going out, however The Solent is well protected by The Isle of Wight and this is rarely an issue for us.
