Booking your Solent Charter with 4Charter
For eight years now, 4charter has been providing wide variety of groups with their optimum sailing events on the Solent in order to give both great value for money and a rewarding experience. We believe that learning new skills through team building exercises and a high standard of tuition plays a vital role in the life of anyone seeking to broaden their horizons, making our Solent yacht charters perfect for corporate and social events alike.
Meet the Fleet
Our Thames Sailing Barge, Alice, is just one of the tools in our arsenal when putting together a package which works for you. All of our operations are based at Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth, although we are more than happy to run stag and hen charters, family charters, RIB charters and yacht charters from other Solent harbours including Southampton, Cowes, Yarmouth, Ryde, Hamble, Chichester, Gosport and Lymington. Although the travel time does cut into the charter time, we find that customers appreciate this additional flexibility which allows them to select their most accessible location.
4charter also controls a number of skippered yachts which are available to anyone looking for a private yacht charter on the Solent. These come in all shapes and sizes, meaning there will always be a vessel appropriate for both your needs and budget.
Of course, we must also talk about Alice, the jewel in our crown. Alice is a beautifully refurbished Thames Sailing Barge based at Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth, moored in the shadow cast by famous landmark the Spinnaker Tower. As well as being perfect for a day or weekend sailing event, she is available for charter should you wish to host a dockside party, and can comfortably sit 20 guests in her dining area for formal meals.
Bespoke Days Out on the Solent
Now you know our fleet a little better, it is time to outline the opportunities we have to offer. If you are looking for a bespoke corporate day out with a difference, Alice and our accompanying yachts are the ideal way to encourage team building for a party of up to 60 people. After learning the ropes (so to speak) on the trip out to Cowes in the morning, budding sailors are encouraged to take control on the trip back to Gun Wharf Quays and attempt to beat their colleagues to the finish line in a spot of friendly racing. As sailing requires everyone on board to work together as a well-oiled machine, this certainly promotes the idea that any task can be achieved through cooperation and good communication.
Alternatively, for a bespoke hen or stag party with 4charter, why not ask us what we have to offer in terms of social events? Your stag do or hen party should be one of the most memorable occasions of your pre-marriage life, so pushing the boat out – quite literally! – is essential.
As well as enjoying a slap up meal on Alice on the Friday evening, 4charter can offer exclusive VIP club entry to some of Portsmouth’s prime night life spots, Tiger Tiger being the most popular choice. A weekend of sailing on Alice will follow, taking in sights such as Southampton, Cowes and the Medina whilst in close proximity to Alice’s well stocked bar!
Whatever occasion you are looking to enhance by a unique and luxurious private yacht charter, 4charter can accommodate your every need. Get in touch with us today to see exactly what we have to offer you.
