End Of Bareboat Yacht Charter

Following the worst year on record for incidents, damage and insurance claims we have withdrawn our fleet from bareboat charter with immediate effect.
Having increased the level of qualification required to bareboat charter from Day Skipper to Coastal Skipper earlier in the year seemed to have no effect as the quality of the Coastal Skippers we saw was no better than Day Skippers.
It is our opinion that RYA Training Centres need to check prerequisite experience and uphold standards.

It is such a shame that students of Solent Boat Training won`t be able to bareboat charter next year even though these skippers seem to be trained to a much higher standard than the norm.
