Hamble Point Yacht Charters offers a fleet of beautiful, privately owned sailing and motor yachts available for hire in the Solent.

Whether you are looking to hire a yacht for a day, weekend, week or longer, for a bareboat charter, skippered charter or a corporate sailing event, we have a sailing or motor yacht to suit you.

All of our yachts are superbly equipped, well maintained and freshly cleaned before your charter. Our friendly on-shore support team offer a personal service and we are ideally located in the picturesque Hamble village, with a wide choice of restaurants and pubs to make the most of your sailing charter.

Hamble Point Yacht Charters are the UK’s leading independent charter fleet operator, with over 20 yachts between 32 – 52ft, based at Hamble Point Marina near Southampton. There is easy access by car and Hamble Point is the nearest marina to the centre of the Solent, the main sailing area on the UK’s South Coast.

Unlike other charter companies our boats are unbranded, so you can feel like you are sailing your own yacht. There are also no cruising limits, so for longer charters you can explore the UK South West, the Northern coast of France or take a trip to the Channel Islands.

We are passionate about delivering an enjoyable and straight-forward charter experience, and we are delighted to hold the 2018 Customer Service Award from British Marine Leisure Boating as well as a 5-star rating on Trip Advisor.

If you are not yet one of our regular customers, come and see for yourself or sign up for our e-newsletters for special offers and updates on new yachts joining our fleet.

Our services include: Bareboat Yacht Charter, Skippered Yacht Charter, Skippered Motor Yacht Hire, Corporate Sailing, Yacht Management and an RYA Sailing School… Everything you require to make your UK South Coast Solent yachting or boating both enjoyable and exhilarating!


Had another amazing week sailing thanks to HPYC. The team here are so friendly; Alex, Josh and Dave are a really credit to the business - nothing seems to much trouble and we shall definitely be visiting again next year. Here’s to hoping we have another mid 20’s heatwave.....please.

Another fantastic week! (M Yarnold)
