Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    If you’re looking for a professional, high quality RYA- training center, you just found your spot ! I did several courses, great fun, safe, clean, well maintained boats, everything organized accordingly the high standards of RYA. The use of comfortable well maintained Spinlock deckvests and nice wet weather gear is included :-) I did several courses and it was a wonderful experience with a steep learning curve, thanks to Andy and his team 👍

    3rd family chill out holiday on board narrow boat Bramble on the Basingstoke Canal. Simply perfect... Thanks to the entire crew at Galleon Marine for once again presenting a clean, well prepared boat with another careful handover. The canal is a rare jewel passing though the home counties and a real nature corridor, bursting with wildlife. Guys, this is special...

    The yacht was clean (as in spotless).
    The yacht was spacious (eight berths and two heads).
    The instructor was knowledgeable, patient, and good-humoured.

    The solent is an excellent place to learn. It is sheltered so you can enjoy the wind without having to deal with big waves.

    There are hazards to improve your navigation skills and at the end of the day's sailing there are plenty of places to moor where you can get good food and drink.

    I highly recommend the RYA diesel engine course provided by Aboard Boat Coaching. The day was broken down into sections covering various engine components which were both explained, shown using real engine parts and in many cases we were given hand on tasks such as changing a water pump impeller. Our trainer Mike freely shared his knowledge and experience and was happy to answer questions throughout the day. A great day in a well equipped classroom which was fully set up for engine training.

    We chartered Aphrodite for a weeks Family sailing holiday and the service was fantastic, especially Brad when we had to change boats during the week.

    Thanks

    We had used Dave and his boat for scattering ashes at sea in the Solent 2 years ago. We decided to revisit and commemorate the occasion with another trip with Dave. Dave’s attention to detail and caring attitude has not waived at all. Another lovely trip on Dointhedo. Thanks Dave 👍 Tara and Family

    Myself and two friends had a great weekend on Forever, a Jeanneau 42i Performance, which was in fantastic condition, well presented and sailed really well. Friendly welcome from Arnie and a thorough handover by bosun James. This was our second charter with LYC and both times the communications beforehand and afterwards has been superb. We will definitely be back.

    I had an excellent experience with Michelle. I've been paddling for some time and had some clear objectives for what I wanted from the lesson. Michelle clarified these ahead of time and pitched the lesson so that we achieved everything I wanted. I also learned a bunch of stuff I did not know I needed to know. Her teaching style is great, she put me at ease and I found it very easy to learn from her. I feel like I got tons from the lesson and I also had a great time while I was there. I would recommend Michelle to anyone interested in increasing their paddling skill, regardless of their experience.

    We booked a two hour charter to take my dad’s ashes out onto the Solent. We cannot have asked for more from Tony and Ian as they were supportive, friendly and helped to make what was a difficult day a perfect one.
    Their consideration of our wishes was wonderful from the moment of booking through to the day itself.
    I’m sure all their charters, regardless of the occasion, are run with the same level of care and professionalism.
    Thank you

    A marvellous day out and good value too. Seafin is a beautiful old-fashioned boat, perfect for a party. The crew were fanstastic, their whole approach was about making our day special. For not much more than an expensive dinner, you can treat your friends and family to a whole day experience that they will always remember.
