Corporate Yacht Charter and Sailing Days
Hamble Point Yacht Charters offers two different styles of corporate sailing days; active teambuilding and luxury hospitality. No prior sailing experience is required for either option.
Bring your team and learn how to sail a yacht in the Solent!
Sailing is well known for strong parallels to the business world; success is based on a common goal, clear communication, understanding of your own role and an ability to interact with the rest of the team to achieve the maximum performance.
The emphasis of our team building sailing days is on active learning and taking part, with everyone encouraged to participate in learning the ropes (quite literally) and taking the helm.
Up to 10 people: Small groups up to 10 people can sail together on a single yacht under the guidance of a professional skipper.
Over 10 people: Larger groups are divided into teams (of up to 10 people per team) so everyone has access to the action. Each team learns to sail their sailing yacht in the morning, followed by lunch and the opportunity for a friendly race in the afternoon – the team who has best learned to work together will be the winner! Alternatively, combine a sailing yacht with a high speed rib and teams swap over in the afternoon for a combination of learning and high speed thrill.
A luxurious hospitality sailing day is the perfect for networking, to entertain clients or to host suppliers, in a private environment.
Choose between sailing on board a luxury sailing yacht (up to 54ft) or our unique 75ft Gentleman’s Motor Cruiser for up to 30 guests (Seafin).
Spend your day enjoying the experience as a group; admiring the stunning scenery of the Solent from a unique vantage point, watching other boats and relaxing over nibbles and drinks. Guests may be more involved in the sailing at their own choice.
The day is fully catered with breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea provided. A variety of menus are available to suit all dietary requirements and preferences. Lunch can be served on board or taken ashore in Cowes or Lymington.
Up to 10 people: Small groups can sail together on a luxury sailing yacht with a skipper and hostess looking after the group throughout the day.
Up to 30: larger groups can sail together on Seafin, our fully-crewed luxury Gentleman’s Motor Cruising Yacht previously owned by the Profumo family. A Corporate Sailing Day includes captain, hostesses, use of jet-skis, stand-up paddle-boards, catering and complimentary on-board bar.
Our experienced team will tailor your sailing day to meet your exact requirements; whether that involves upgrading lunch to a BBQ in the Yacht Club, adding more adventure with high-speed ribs rides or an overnight adventure sail; providing branded kit; arranging an inter-departmental regatta; or simply arranging flexible timings to fit with travel requirements.
Hamble Point Yacht Charters are based at Hamble Point Marina which boasts free parking and excellent motorway links and is the nearest marina to the central Solent, so whichever type of day you choose, you’ll enjoy more time sailing and less time motoring back to base.

Had a fantastic week chartering Blue Otter, Alex was incredibly helpful and sent loads of information and date checking prior to booking. There was a handover video and both the handover and return were really smooth. The boat was lovely and well maintained and Lee was really helpful in recommending places to visit (and helping identify the steering issue as an autopilot takeover - doh!). Definitely will be back and would fully recommend!
Just back from a lovely week in the Solent. Great service from HPYC from first inquiry through to return handover. Very straightforward to deal with, and the yacht was in excellent condition. We've chartered from many companies in the UK and abroad and the attention to detail (and flawless inventory!) was second to none. Everything about the yacht and equipment had clearly been well looked after and was in immaculate condition. Great service, will use again.
Always very friendly service, and well-maintained yachts. Easy check-in and checkout. Will be back...
We had a great time and were very happy with everything. Your team were genuinely friendly and were very helpful when we needed it. Is a big contrast to many charter companies I have dealt with in the past.
Watching the sun go down with a glass of bubbly on the deck of a sparkling yacht was unbelievable. What a treat, and a much needed change of scenery in these troubled times. We will be back for sure
Fab service, nothing too much trouble, including my daft questions. I'll be a repeat customer for sure!
We had a great time sailing with Lee for a few days at the beginning of September. Hamble Point Yacht Charters supplied us an impeccable 45 ft Hanse yacht, which was handled with complete mastery by Captain Lee.It was a privilege to sail with Lee, who is clearly a highly skilled professional taking great pride in his work ... but who is also a fantastic character with a great sense of humour and plenty of fun stories to keep the whole family entertained. He balances the serious side of safety and learning about sailing with a whopping dose of amusement and good cheer. We sailed the Solent in some decent seas, visited Bucklers Hard on the banks of the Beaulieu River and learned lots about British nautical history. Our boys started somewhat of a fishing trend catching bass off the back of the boat in Portsmouth and we would love to sail with Lee again in the future.The man truly knows his stuff, maintained the boat impeccably and went to every effort to ensure that we had a great time. Many thanks to “Shippers” and Hamble Point Charters. We’ll be back.
Chartered bareboats with HPYC on numerous occasions most recently in Sept 2020. Always helpful and accommodating. Highly recommend.
We had a fantastic weekend sailing on Loxley B. Boat in super condition and spotlessly clean, Alex. and the team very thorough and always on hand to answer any questions. A great experience. We will be back. Thank you!
Lots of information from office with a friendly service. We selected a one of the cheaper yachts and was please with find everything work and was cleaned and tidy. We will definitely be back
This was the first time we had tried chartering and as experienced racing sailors we didn't know what to expect. Covid has closed down all our events this year so this was a chance to get afloat at least once in 2020. What a great experience and Alex and all the Hamble staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We had a great three days and we will be back !! We would have no hesitation is recommending Hamble Point Yacht Charters.
From initial enquiry to handing the boat back, the service and attention to detail was fantastic. Very prompt service for the minor niggle we did have and with a wide selection of boats to charter, I'll certainly be back. One of the USPs of this business is they are right by the entrance to the Hamble so it's very quick to get out into the Solent compared to other marinas further up where it can take 30-40 mins or more just to reach Southampton water. Big thanks to Alex and the team, we had a great week on a very well kept boat
Professional, efficient and friendly. The booking and admin process was straightforward, the handover was well organised and Covid compliant. Most importantly the boat, a Sun Odyssey 37 was in great condition and very well equipped. We will definitely use this company again.
A short email to say thank you to you and all your team for a fantastic yacht charter and for all your help with our booking at such short notice. Apaloosa is a lovely yacht and very well equipped. Hamble Point Marina is a great base to explore from – and my first time sailing from there, although my husband has been a few times.
I would also like to praise our skipper, Dave. He was excellent company, very patient, great at explaining manoeuvres and very happy to involve the children so that they could learn too. Given the weather conditions and our rusty knowledge, it was very reassuring to have him with us. Dave was very happy to impart his knowledge and he ensured we made the most of our short charter. We would definitely request him again!
So, thank you once again, it was great fun, and have a good weekend.
One of the larger charter companies which means they have a large fleet and permanent office staff, a big plus. I chartered Loxley B (37ft Sun Odyssey). Boat was clean, well equipped, well maintained. Office staff was really friendly and efficient in answering questions quickly. Will use this company again.
