The Thrill of Winter Powerboating

The Winter months are an ideal time for getting out on the Solent in a powerboat. The cooler months can offer some fantastic crisp, cold but calm days on the water. Most people have hung up their gear for the season so the water can be incredibly quiet. If you wrap up warm, it's a truly wonderful time to explore with a motorboat.

There is an asthetic charm about Winter which is like no other. The tranquility, wildlife encounters, and breathtaking scenery are some of the many perks of low-season powerboating.  With quieter waterways, you can enjoy the freedom to explore without the hustle and bustle that comes with the busy Summer months. With an increasing trend of cold water immersions, ice baths, and cold water swimming the wellness benefits of the great outdoors during Winter months and embracing the chill is surging in popularity.

You'll be pleased to hear that all our motor boats come with onboard heating to take the edge off. Pack your own Winter warmer soup with a doorstop loaf for your explorations or moor up and benefit from a roaring log fire at a local eatery in the marinas. The Ketch Rigger, adjacent to our office offers some tasty soups on the menu and delicious crew pots which you can take on your way.

Winter charter rates are a lot more reasonable when venturing out in the low season, enjoy some fantastic rates on motor boating for midweek and weekend bookings. If you don't have sailing gear we hire our all-weather sailing equipment including waterproof jackets, trousers, and boots. We can even provide fleecy blankets on board. Our range of optional extras* means you can never set off unprepared!

The unpredictability of the weather during the colder months can present a challenge, so why not benefit from having one of our professional and friendly skippers on board* Our Skippers have extensive knowledge and experience in navigating the Solent waterways and all the best local spots to venture to!
