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.

We have over 25 years of experience and of being based at Hamble Point Marina. During this time, as a family-run business, we have concentrated on offering a highly personal service to both the owners of the yachts on our fleet and to charterers. We aim for a friendly yet professional approach, and are members of the Royal Yachting Association, British Marine Federation and Marine Leisure Association.
The majority of our charters are repeat bookings and much of our business is through personal recommendation. We have a reputation for a high quality of maintenance and presentation of our fleet, at the top end of the charter market. Our charterers tend to be individuals, families, sailing clubs and retired persons.
Our location at Hamble Point Marina is easy to get to, yet provides prime access into the Solent. You will benefit from all the Club Outlook advantages offered by an MDL marina, including free visitor nights at other MDL marinas, 20% off boatyard services, and MDL WiFi.
We will always be pleased to help with any queries or investigations that you may have concerning your yacht, equipment or sailing generally, and access to our 24 hour emergency hotline is available to you whenever you are sailing.
We are conscious that we are responsible for your pride and joy, that you own her, and that you have first call on her use. We make every effort to respect your wishes concerning her and to maintain her in at least as good, if not better, condition than when she joined our fleet.CONTACT US
Just finished a fabulous week in the Solent with two friends. The chartered boat was in very good condition, considering she was quite elderly. Being the end of the season there were a few scratches on her hull, which were pointed out by the staff. However, the interior and engine were in first class condition, everything was ship shaped and worked. Bembridge then Yarmouth back to Buckler's Hard, finally returning to the Hamble. Winds mainly from either S or N of F3/6, just perfect sailing. Certainly, in the future, hope to repeat this experience with a very well run organised Charter.
Thank you for everything, certainly hope in the near future to charter again, and pleased to recommend the efficient way your organisation works
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.
