The Hut - Colwell Bay

The Hut is a popular seafood restaurant on the Isle of Wight and somewhere we visit regularly in course of a charter season. It offers informal dining whilst looking out over the Needles to Hurst Castle. Patrons include radio presenter Chris Evans who hosted his Virgin radio show from there in 2019. Very much the place to be seen private dining is available on a raised terrace overlooking the main restaurant. Book well in advance.

To arrive in style you really need to charter our brand new 55ft Flybridge motor yacht. We anchor in front of the restaurant and one of their ribs collects you then brings you back after the meal. Colwell Bay can be a bit exposed in Westerly winds making it uncomfortable but fortunately we have a £120,000 Seakeeper gyro stabilisation system fitted which eliminates roll at anchor. It also allows us to operate environmentally sympathetic displacement charters in comfort. Sip drinks whilst gliding through the Solent. When time is prescious we have a top speed in excess of 30 knots.

Our Princess F55 flybridge was supplied brand new in 2023 and features many upgraded options in addition to standard refinements such as luxury fresh water bathrooms. All charters include a hostess and commercially endorsed yachtmaster skipper with good local knowledge. The boat offers an abundance of inside and outdoors space for up to 12 guests.

We cover all areas of the Solent from our base at Haslar marina Gosport (Portsmouth) but can start and finish your charter from alternative ports of call to suit individual requirements.
