Meet The Skippers

Bucket List & Ecos are skippered by friends David & Matthew with logistical help from their wife's Sarah & Lucy. 

David retired from the professional business world during in which sailing was a well earned stress relief on the occasional weekend. Since retirement he has become a qualified RYA instructor and MCA skipper.

Matthew was the owner and principal of Solent Boat Training in Southampton until 2022 and is now focusing on charter skippering. 

With 20 years of experience and tens of thousands of miles mostly on the south coast they welcome you aboard the yachts of Solent Boat Charters.

About The Yachts

Originally both Bucket List and Ecos were Solent based but a 51ft yacht deserves to stretch it`s legs now and then so we have relocated Bucket List to Dartmouth this year to explore the west country.
This leaves the fast and agile Ecos to dodge the traffic and shallower waters of the Solent.

Bucket List is a fully self sufficient 51ft Bavaria designed for round the world sailing offering multiple events including private charter, day sails and our weekend sailing experience.
Ecos is a performance cruiser for those who now they enjoy sailing and are looking at a more hands on experience.
