Thinking of Hiring a Party Boat ? What about Chartering a Motor Cruiser. Why not Charter a Rib. ABC may Charter our boat to Professional Boat Users and Commercial operators should the need arise with or without a skipper. ABC are members of the Professional Charters Association.
We can supply qualified commercially endorsed skippers on our Rib for a half day or a full day. A half day is 09:00 hrs till 12:30 hrs or 13:30 hrs till 16:30 hrs. A full day is from 09:00 hrs till 16:30 hrs. The Charter is subject to the Solent area and we can accommodate most locations within the Solent for day trips. For example the Solent Forts, watch the cricket on Bramble Bank and lunch visits to The Hut in Colwell Bay. We can also Charter to film crews as our rear seats unbolt, leaving a great working platform for Camera work and one of our skippers is also a professional drone pilot that has filmed sports events for TV and seal counting on the Farne Islands.
A safety briefing and boat familiarisation will take place prior to the customer receiving the keys and the customer (and guests), will be supplied with ABC life jackets (mandatory) and waterproofs if required. There is a laminated safety brief card on board “Equinox” for this purpose in the explorer (black) box.
The operating area for pleasure charter, will be the Solent from Yarmouth to Bembridge Harbours in the South and the mainland coast, inlets and estuaries to the North of the Solent. The river Hamble can also be negotiated and the river Itchen & Test.
Commercial and Professional hirers must inform ABC of the intended voyage at the time of booking and may extend beyond the operating area if appropriate.
If conversant with the RYA SafeTRX app, this should be encouraged to all potential customers of Charter and if possible send a confirmation alert when they have returned to ABC. Aboard Boat Coaching will use SafeTRX when taking out Charter Customers.
