As CEO of two Electronics companies, Lascar Electronics and Corintech Ltd, I was looking for a challenging but fun event for our executive teams. I must say, Solent Rib Charter were just brilliant! The day was well organised by Hannah, breakfast and lunch was perfect and the two skippers were very experienced, very safe and fun! A thoroughly enjoyable day.

I am actually in the marine industry so i thought this might be abit of a busmans holiday, but had a fantastic day on a very well looked after good spec boat. The handover was great and the overall service was excellent. I would thoroughly recommend a day on one of these great boats

SRC provided an excellently organized and hugely enjoyable day for a large group of colleagues. The skippers were professional and very friendly and didn't put a foot wrong. We also appreciated the flexibility SRC showed in organizing the day around our requirements. Wouldn't hesitate to use again and would highly recommend.

Excellent service from Solent Rib Charter - their Ribs are excellent. Their staff are there promptly to meet you for the handover. Very efficient operation ! We had a blast over to Yarmouth for brunch, then up to Cowes in to the Medina and back around Bramble Bank and New Town Creek. It was the day of the Cowes-Torquay-Cowes Power... More

Another great outing with Solent Rib charter. Boat clean and prep'd on arrival at 0830 and a through run through at handover. Dakota treated us well and didn't mis a beat. A full Solent tour; Portsmouth naval dock, Cowes for a morning coffee stop then back to Yarmouth for lunch. Superb day can't wait for my next outing

Having never been out on a rib before I didn't know what to expect, but being met by the lovely young man who told us everything we needed to do (and don't do !) made the start to the day calm and efficient. We had the most wonderful day and stopped at various places around the island and indeed over... More

Chartering a rib is such a fantastic way to spend the day. A member of Solent Rib Charter staff was there to meet and greet us at the appointed time and the RIB was prepared and ready to go, so no time wasting. We went to so many different places in one day - Yarmouth for breakfast, The Needles, Cowes... More

We had an excellent day thrashing about the Solent. Both our skippers were friendly and knowledgeable of the area. We had the music going and the sun was shining, couldn't have asked for more! Hannah and the gang were amazing and were there to help us plan the day to make sure we got the most of it! Even pulled... More

Very easy to book and the RIB was high quality with a very powerful engine. Cruised easily at 25 knots fully loaded and up to 35 was a momentary max speed. I got to Portsmouth in under an hour via Cowes, went into Portsmouth Harbour for a look about and went back to the OIW on the way back to... More

For a day of fun and exhilaration on the water we don't know of anything better than taking out a RIB for the day. Everyone at Solent Rib Charter is highly professional, helpful, efficient and friendly and the service is simply seamless in every sense. They just get it right every time we use them. The RIBs are always in... More
