Have just finished our third charter in 18 months with universal. Their boats are excellent and the team behind it great. We have been as a family with very young kids, as a group of friends aswell and the boats are well suited to the solent which has so much to offer. Nothing to say apart for a class set up.

Great day out on the Solent, do as little or as much as you like towards the actual sailing, so pulling of ropes, steering etc or just sit back and relax. Superb value on their 'pop-up' sailing days, £80 each for 8 hour trip!

Great ‘pop up’ day sailing on the Solent across to the Isle of Wight. Gentle skills coaching from the skipper allowed everyone to get involved as much or as little as they wanted. Our skipper, Peter, was lovely and highly experienced, making the day even more enjoyable. We were keen to get more familiar with the Dufour 412 as we were chartering one in the coming weeks. Would highly recommend and we will certainly be back 😊 next time with the beers!

We went out with Peter the skipper on 8th July . He was brilliant from start to finish . His knowledge, expertise and safety focus were outstanding. We had a comprehensive briefing to ensure that it was a safe trip. The yacht saggy puss was clean today and a delight to be on. Highly recommended and would love to come back again soon

This was the 5th time we've chartered form Universal and, as always, Chris, Melanie, Steve and the team provided a great service with excellent communication and flexibility with our booking. Our yacht "Scooby" was prepared to the usual very high standard and performed well - without any problems. I will be chartering with Universal again very soon and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to others.
