Alternatively, you may simply want to take your family on a great day out, journeying at speed from one major harbour to another.

Indeed, speaking of that last point, our charter services can be the perfect way to discover the best that Portsmouth and Southampton have to offer. When you choose RIB hire from 4charter, you can be sure of extremely competitive prices, the best possible service and a matching fleet of safe, fully coded boats.

Our charter services give you access to the best possible boats

We maintain an enviable fleet of Ribeye 7.85is, which offer levels of performance and comfort that make them some of the finest such boats available for charter in the UK. They are capable of an amazing 50mph top speed while also delivering great fuel economy, courtesy of their new Yamaha f225 fuel injected 4-stroke outboards.

Our boats are also fitted with the most recent electrical and safety equipment, and are fully coded for 12 passengers. They are also renowned for their great handling and safety in all sea states, thanks to the Ribeye 7.85 deep V hull, while the distinctive chine also ensures that the 7.85 remains dry in even the choppiest of seas. The lengths of our boats also naturally differ, ranging as they do from six to nine metres.

RIB charter that is as appropriate to corporate events as to private use

When you make use of our RIB charter services for private use, you can rest assured that you and your family will be safe on board. Each of our boats is helmed by experienced and capable skippers with a high level of local knowledge. You can even learn to drive the boat yourself under tuition and in the process find out for yourself just what it feels like to handle such a high-speed boat. Our boats are also fully coded and insured, with a full range of children’s lifejackets also being available.

We can tailor your day out on the boat to your budget and circumstances, advising you of the best things to see and do in Portsmouth and Southampton. Whether you choose private or corporate RIB charter, you can ensure a truly memorable day out by hiring RIBs in conjunction
with our Thames sailing barge Alice.
