With Yacht Charter Management, your yacht is added to our charter fleet. Your yacht will be professionally cared for and either:
In either case, we will manage the marketing and the administration of the charter enquiries and bookings. Your yacht is still available for you to use, whenever she is not on charter. This means that you can get the maximum benefit from your ownership, whilst ensuring that your yacht makes a significant contribution to paying her own way when you are not using her.
We ask you to notify us of the dates you plan to use your yacht. These dates are then reserved for you and your boat will be ready on your arrival so you can just sail away. If you wish to sail at short notice, there is no problem, but we do ask that you call us to check we have not taken any last minute bookings. When the yacht returns to the marina we will check her over, thoroughly clean her and oversee any remedial work required or any additional work that you may wish us to attend to.
We can arrange berthing at Hamble Point Marina on a walk-ashore berth and can provide you with a competitive commercial marine insurance quote. We can carry out all routine maintenance and servicing, as well as the annual winter haul out and refit, working with reputable local companies to ensure that quality is maintained and that work is followed through to satisfactory completion.
If you prefer, you may also opt to carry out some or all the annual maintenance or other work on your yacht yourself rather than us arranging for it to take place.
Our Standard Yacht Charter Management programme offers you complete control of expenditure on your yacht. We will identify and recommend maintenance or servicing work that needs doing, and you are free to accept our quotes or source your own.
Our Subscription Yacht Charter Management programme offers the best peace of mind for any charter owner. The fixed monthly fee depends on the size of your yacht, but ALL running costs including berthing and insurance, maintenance and repair work are covered – so there are no unexpected costs or surprises.
If you don’t want your yacht to be chartered, but would like someone to look after it on a daily basis, consider our Guardianage option.
For full details including a sample budget, please call us on 02380 457110.

Just returned from a 1 week bareboat charter of Aeolus. The service through researching the options in October, where I popped in whilst in the area to view available boats, through the booking process and the charter itself was great. This particular boat may not be the newest on the water but is maintained to a high standard and allowed us a wonderful week crossing the channel to Fecamp and Honfleur before returning for a couple of days in the Solent. Nothing was too much trouble for HPYC and as a regular charterer around the UK and Europe the efficiency and quality of service delivered is appreciated, especially confirmation of the return of the security deposit emailed to me before I got home.
We sailed overnight to Alderney onboard Abraxas, which is a First 40.7. Initially in strong winds we made excellent progress and for the last couple of hours motored in no wind. This boat is good for passage making if you have an experienced crew happy to handle the large main sail.
Friendly welcome. All staff helpful. Relaxed atmosphere. Instructors gave clear explanations of safety equipment and how to perform tasks expected of crew. Very tolerant of mistakes made. Encouraged us to be more independent as the week went by to help build our confidence. Berthed in a number of different marinas each presenting different issues to consider when berthing. The whole experience was most enjoyable and I feel able to crew for other skippers. Excellent value.
The boat and equipment was in good order. We learnt a huge amount in a friendly and fun environment. I wouldn't hesitate to use HPYC for training or charters in the future.
We had a great charter of the yacht Appaloosa from HPYC. The boat was very clean when we boarded her, and was ready for us to board at the agreed time. The staff were very helpful and helped us straight away with any queries.....and my security deposit return was confirmed very quickly. I will definitely consider chartering from HPYC again!
When asked what they thought of HPYC and the day we provided for them: "Excellent"! Everything, as always, was excellent!
5 day solent area charter. HPYC were welcoming, professional, flexible and cheerful. We feel you may book here with confidence then relax and trust that all will be as you would wish.
Nice boat in fantastic condition even if it was quite old (2003). We enjoyed sailing in the Solent and the tips issued by Hamble Point Yacht Charters. We will come back.
I chartered a 32 ft with Hamble Point Yacht Charters for a weekend with a friend. the boat was good and Hamble point location is great to get out in the Solent quickly and and for a beer in Hamble at night. Staff at Hamble point Charter was very pro and friendly
The team had a great time on the boat. The staff were fantastic and very welcoming throughout the day. The mid-afternoon stop was also a welcome & pleasant surprise. The jet skis were fantastic, the food & drink were great too. We will most likely be coming again soon.
The yacht was in perfect condition. Josh made a great ship handover. Unfortunately, the modern yachts are no longer designed to be seaworthy. The self-tacking jib cannot be trimmed properly. But otherwise we had a great week. My crew was eager to learn and could take home many valuable experiences. I love the Solent and I'll definitely be back.
I was a bit apprehensive about doing my competent crew course .... I’m normally a feet firmly on dry land kinda girl but my trip thoroughly exceeded expectations! I went alone on an all women crew & quickly realised you are never alone on a boat.... we bonded very quickly over a refreshment the first night! I was kitted out with wellies & waterproof clothing & beds on board were chosen... surprisingly comfortable. I was amazed at the quality of food we ate ... proper full English breakfast to set us up the first morning .... which was a blessing in the wet & wind! Alex, our yatchmaster put us all at ease talking us through the course. I hadn’t realised we would moor beside such good showers every night altho I admit I didn’t shower every day ! 🤣 I learnt so much on the course, weather, wind, knots, helming, tacking, mooring! We dealt with fog, anchor chains, going up the mast (not normal!), man overboard (not literally!) & all the time Alex was very clear, professional & super friendly always encouraging us along the way. I can’t recommend Hamble point sailing enough, and a trip to the Isle of Wight.... I hadn’t realised how beautiful it was!
Thank you all for the well prepared Aeolus. Hope to charter her again next Spring and probably this autumn.
Hassle-free check-in with adjacent free parking about 50m from the boat so we could start enjoying our accommodation-only 2 night stay. Marina facilities are excellent, the location ultra-quiet at night, the boat was spotless, and essential start-up supplies helpful. We lucked out on weather with sun and shorts at the end of March by the Solent for the weekend. I highly recommend Alex and her boats for a stay on the water.
