ABC may Charter a boat to Professional Boat Users and Commercial operators should the need arise providing a Commercially Endorsed Skipper holding the correct qualifications. We can also provide a skipper to anyone wishing to Charter a vessel for the day. ABC are members of the Professional Charters Association.
You can charter the company boat for a half day or 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.
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 to the North, inlets and estuaries to the North of the Solent are also included. 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 and have qualified staff or they can use ours.
In the summer we will be providing trips to the Hut at Colwell Bay on the Isle of Wight every Wednesday. See photo below and booking options will soon follow or ring for details.
