The Cost of chartering our motor yacht in the Solent

2022 has been difficult with a huge rise in fuel prices from around £0.80 per litre in 2021 to £1.50 per litre in 2022, but we have tried to minimise price rises. Single day mid week charters start from around £2,000. Friday, Saturday, Sunday  charters start from around £2,200. Certain dates and itineraries may attract a premium but we will let you know a final price when discussing your charter.

We can sometimes accommodate late notice charters. Call us on 07525 622268 to discuss your requirements.

The Charter price includes:

  • Exclusive use of our Princess 50 Mk3 flybridge motor yacht.
  • Commercially endorsed Yachtmaster Skipper and crew / hostess.
  • Drinks
  • Afternoon Cream tea
  • All mooring fees incurred during your trip
  • Fuel *
  • Cleaning
  • Vat where applicable

What doesn’t the price include:

  • Any meals taken ashore

* Fuel – We include the cost of fuel in your charter when taking a typical itinerary. Should your chosen itinerary take us further afield we reserve the right to charge a fuel supplement. You will be made fully aware of any surcharge at the time of planning.

When considering outright ownership costs chartering makes a lot of sense. Spend your time on board enjoying the company of friends and relaxing rather than worrying about the technical aspects of arriving safely in one piece and getting moored up.
