Explore the coast in style
There is nothing quite like messing about in boats. Explore our top two ways to hit the sea in style...
gentleman's Motor Yacht 'Lysander'
Lysander is a 52’ gentleman’s motor yacht built by Alden Yachts in Rhode Island. She will appeal to those who look for style, comfort and presence in a yacht with an impeccable pedigree. She is perfect for corporate guests, a team day out or marking a significant family occasion.
The fly bridge with comfortable seating for ten provides a spectacular viewing platform for events. The saloon offers a good entertaining area with ample seating and excellent visibility with oversized windows and clear sightlines.
Relaxing or Entertaining
Lysander has a variety of mingling areas besides the fly bridge and saloon. A mizzen deck, aft deck with sofa, and substantial foredeck create a great feeling of space.
The Yacht is fully air-conditioned and fitted with wine cooler, ice maker and LCD TV’s in every cabin. Despite the gilded specification; Lysander is no slouch. She reaches planing speeds very rapidly and remains at sea in conditions that leave ‘plastics fantastics’ alongside.
Speed, style and grace
Lysander exists to be enjoyed; to provide the best seat in the house for everything the Solent has to offer... to do so with speed, style and grace, all without embarrassing you at the smartest of yacht clubs.
Lysander is coded MCA category 2 for twelve passengers and two crew and is moored in Lymington Yacht Haven.
Or, if you are staying at Gins, you can be picked up from there from the private pontoon!
skippered rib charter
Take your family and friends on a private Skippered Rib charter to visit the Needles, Alum Bay, Hurst Castle, Yarmouth, the historic naval dockyards, Spinnaker Tower and Gunwharf Quays! And that's not even mentioning Cowes, Beaulieu River and Lymington!
Planned for you
Let our skipper help tailor a memorable day for your party. You may already have a plan in mind which we will happily follow, however clients are often keen to tap into the local knowledge of our skipper's who 'work' the Solent every day.
The wind and tide will have a major effect on the conditions that you will encounter; working closely with our skipper will help make the most of your day working in the conditions that best suit your party.
A broad range! We have as many clients who know nothing of the water as those who are seasoned sailors. Often a private booking is to celebrate an event - milestone birthdays and anniversaries seem popular. We have a full range of life jackets for children from toddlers up and good quality breathable oilskins are also available.
We have hosted a 100th birthday party and carried a baby just three weeks old, so the age range is significant. All age groups are welcome and we are able to configure the day to suit a wide variety of tastes from teenage adrenalin junkies to golden wedding anniversaries!
Alternative to bareboat
Some clients who are intially keen on chartering a bareboat (self drive) opt for a skippered boat so that they can make the most of their day without worrying about finding a mooring. With our skipper on board, all liablity for loss or damage is carried by the company
