Yacht Charter

We are now able to offer finance on all yacht charters (Subject to acceptance)

Commodore Yachting are proud to offer yacht charter to suitably qualified/experienced sailors** who want to do their own thing in the great location that is the Solent. You can charter our yachts for any length of time, with weekend and week-long charters being very popular, enabling you to get out into the Solent or further afield and really maximise your sailing experience.

On our charters you’ll get a superbly maintained Bavaria yacht from our wide-ranging fleet, with sizes ranging from 36-44’ (10.9m to 13.4m), all of which have multiple cabins and bunks on board so you won’t be short of space for crew. With very competitive charter rates, you can tailor a charter to suit your requirements without it costing the earth.

You’ll get a fully maintained, insured, fuelled and watered yacht, all ready and waiting to go when you arrive. After we’ve welcomed you to Commodore Yachting and helped you on board with your bags, we will give you a comprehensive handover orientation to ensure you are fully-versed and familiarised in how the yacht operates. We will give you a guide to safely exiting and entering Premier Gosport Marina, how and where to stow fenders, where the mooring lines are kept and any other information which you will need to fully enjoy your chartering experience! We will also spend as much time as you need to answer any questions you may have, before you depart on your adventure.

As you’d expect with Commodore Yachting, not only do we offer you quality first class yachts, but also the backup and support to compliment them. As standard we give comprehensive backup and support with our 24/7 support phone line, ensuring that should the worst happen we are always here to respond to your call immediately.

All our Yachts are covered by Seastart marine breakdown assistance, giving you peace of mind that should the worst happen, we’ve got you covered.

So what are you waiting for? Book-up a yacht and get out there! The adventure starts here!

Yachtsman Insurance

We would advise ALL our charter customers to ensure they have suitable holiday insurance in-place to cover their yacht charter holiday. Yachtsman’s insurance is available from a variety of souces like Topsail Insurance and can cover things like damage waiver, cancellations and personal effects cover.

Yacht Charter – Collection Times, Hours of Use, Return Times

We offer our yachts for charters, either skippered or bareboat on the following time basis:

  • Day Charter – Collect 8am – Return 4pm
  • Weekend 2-Day Charter – Collect 5pm Friday* – Return 4pm Sunday
  • Mid-Week 5 Day Charter – 10am First day to 12pm  (Mid-Day) last day (Monday-Friday)
  • Full Week 7 Day Charter – 10am First day to 12pm (Mid-Day) last day (Monday-Sunday or Saturday to Friday)

* Friday evening collection is between the hours of 5.00-7.00pm only. If you are going to arrive later, we will switch on the interior lights in the boat and the handover will be done from 8am the following day. You will not be permitted to leave the marina until handover is complete. We can sometimes do handovers earlier, but this is subject to the boat being made ready in time – Please contact us on the day of charter for updates and please do not arrive early without checking with us first, as we may have to turn you away.

The boats must be returned and handed over to us by the stipulated time on the last day of charter, fuelled, cleaned (we do offer a cleaning service at extra cost – £125/boat) and all your kit off the boat ready for us to carry-out maintenance and sanitising cleaning (for Covid-purposes) ready for the next customer.

We can sometimes tailor specific handover times to suit customers, but this is strictly subject to arrangement with us and availability of boats which may be on courses/charters with other customers.

Our fleet yachts

* Please contact us for details of what qualifications you’ll need. As a minimum we require RYA Day Skipper Practical (Gained in UK waters) although we appreciate not everyone has paper qualifications, so if you can safely demonstrate your sailing abilities under our watchful eye, then we are happy for you to charter our vessels subject to a satisfactory deposit being paid.

** Our yacht charters are solely for the use of private recreational sailors/families and for private tuition courses/experiences run by ourselves. We unfortunately cannot allow 3rd party commercial entities to run training courses on our vessels. Failure to disclose this at the time of booking will mean the forfeit of any deposit paid.
