Rib Charter Experience

Our Rib

Our Rib ‘Rapture’ is a 7.1m Tohatsu Rib, powered with a 2021 Suzuki DP 200 hp outboard engine.
The Rib is a comfortable, stable boat and MCA coded for up to 7 passengers and one skipper.
We supply qualified, experienced skippers, fuel, and the boat is privately hired for your group.
Our Rib Charter experiences offer island transfers and leisurely cruises for passengers over 8 years old.
We are not a high-speed boat ride. The company provides leisurely sightseeing trips and transfers with a max speed of up to 25 knots. A slower speed not only provides increased passenger safety, but enhances the opportunity to spot dolphins and enjoy scenic landscapes for a pleasurable experience.

About Our Rib Charters

Experience

Our Rib Charter experiences are designed to suit your group.

We are not a high-speed boat company, our Rib Charter experiences travel at a maximum speed of 25 knots.

Our company work’s hard to continue to provide the best experience on the water, with the aim to deliver excellence in service.

Location

We are located in Lymington Harbour.

There are many sights to see both out on the water on a Rib Charter and at beautiful ports such as Yarmouth on the Isle of Wight to the heart of the thriving sailing world in Cowes.

The Solent is Europe’s most active stretch of water hosting racing, sailing regattas, container ships, military exercise and a vast portfolio of pleasure and commercial craft, all using the waterways, which you might see on your charter day.

The Isle of Wight is a popular destination for Rib Charter Hire, with an abundance of restaurants and places to visit forming part of your charter experience.

Safety

Our Skippers are all commercially endorsed by the MCA and licenced to skipper carrying vessels.
The company ensures the Ribs operations are managed and maintained professionally to provide a safe, fun charter for passengers.

Ribs are very stable boats, but they are not suitable for those who have back, neck, hip, knee, and other medical conditions which could worsen by shock loads.

The Skipper reserves all rights for the Rib experience day, taking into consideration the tide, conditions and weather at the time of the charter, to always ensure safety of the passengers.

Life jackets are provided for all passengers and crew which are fully adjustable from XS to XXL, and are serviced and maintained to a high standard. Passengers cannot wear their own lifejacket on our Rib Charters.

A polite notice, a large consumption of alcohol on an open boat does not mix well.

Age Restrictions & Limitations

Children under 8 years old are not permitted on a Rib Charter .

We accept pregnant passengers at their own risk, and would significantly reduce the speed for a leisurely comfortable Rib ride.

We love dogs! But unfortunately we do not accept pets on board.
