With a skippered yacht charter, you choose the sailing yacht or motor boat that you would like to sail on, we provide a professional skipper and any additional required crew.
Consider skippered yacht charter if you
You can charter your choice of sailing yacht from our fleet. With our wide selection of well presented and carefully privately owned yachts equipped to the highest standards, we offer a unique choice of make and size of yachts.
We will have a discussion with you to determine your aims for the charter and to understand who will make up your crew in order to provide you with a skipper who will be a good match for you, your group and your requirements. We can also arrange for our skipper to phone you prior to the commencement of your charter to ensure that he/she has a proper understanding of your objectives.
The skipper will be happy to act in the capacity that you would like him/her to – from simply overseeing you skippering the yacht, to ensuring that every person on board has an active role to play and explaining the finer points of sailing and navigation to those who are interested, to quietly sailing the yacht for you while you and your crew sit back and enjoy the sailing experience.
If you have not sailed for some time or if we need to verify your sailing experience before you continue on a bareboat basis, then it is possible to hire one of our professional skippers for a half day or more at the start of your charter to build up your confidence before continuing your sailing holiday without them.
Please note that when you take a skipper on a sailing yacht, you are responsible for providing them with food and drink and, for overnight charters, either a berth on the boat or a B&B room ashore.
Our 75ft motor cruiser, Seafin combines the period elegance of a classic English motor yacht, with all the luxuries and amenities of modern day cruising, providing an ideal environment for relaxing or enjoying the water sports equipment on board.
Life on board is relaxed and informal and our crew will ensure that your party of up to 30 has a truly memorable time. Seafin brings everyone together whether for drinks before lunch or dinner, leisurely chats on the comfortable sofas, playing on the jet skis or partying and dancing to the music. Relax on the top sun deck and take in the view with the blissful prospect of just soaking up the sun in a perfect private setting.
Ideal for a special birthday, hen day, stag day, wedding reception, or other special event.

We charter regularly from HPYC and always find the boats are clean, well maintained and properly equipped. The handover and breifing process is always efficeint and thorough so we get away quickly and we know support is available if there are any difficulties. The marina locatioin is also a great plus, giving easy and quick access to the Solent with optoins ot go east or west depending on the tides. All of the team at HPYC are very friendly and helpful and we really appreciate the great service they provide.
Thoroughly enjoyed the week. Four days sailing with Leigh as skipper; made up the itinerary as we went along - across to Cowes then down to Lulworth Cove and back. Several of us have sailing experience but did not have the experience to navigate the tides and currents of the south coast. Leigh was brilliant - quickly got us doing all the work within our own abilities and his knowledge and experience was exceptional. Knew his stuff. Great fun and pretty good value for money all once you divided it up between the seven of us. Not quite enough storage for all the beer however...
Very efficient and friendly service, quick and slick handover and return. Communication with Alex was very good, both by telephone and emails. I’d never sailed a Gib Sea 37 before but Viola is quick under sail and motor, very noisy in tick over as was pointed out at the handover but equally quiet with a few revs, in fact almost ‘electric’ quiet one crew member remarked. The heavy kick to port in astern can be used to good effect when close quarter manoeuvring. Plenty of electronics ( I brought charts with me but didn’t need them, the plotter at the helm was great ) All in all, Viola was a credit to you and I wouldn’t hesitate to charter her again... Although I do like the look of the Halberg Rassey on the next berth ! Perhaps next year? Many thanks Alex and the team.
We had an excellent weekend on board a 36 ft yacht, Aeolus, chartered from HPYC. The boat was in great condition, fully equipped with no problems at all, Booking, collection and returning the boat all went very smoothly and the staff were all super friendly and efficient. Hamble Point Marina is also a really nice spot and a great place to start out from. HPYC will definitely be our first choice for our next charter.
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.
