Charter a yacht in the Solent

The Solent is one of the most popular sailing areas in the UK. Charter your own yacht with skipper or without and experience the Solent and all it has to offer. The yacht you charter is based in Portsmouth Harbour with easy access to the sea. So if you are looking for a sailing yacht to charter in the Solent, get in contact with Salty Dog Yacht Charter

Call us to discuss your requirements.

Skippered Charters

Skippered charters are ideal for less-experienced crew, those lacking recognised qualifications or for people who want to sit back and relax. Charterers can get involved as little or as much as they want. Take a look at our places to go page on the home page to give you an idea of the places that can be visited.

Skippered charters can be for as little as 1/2 a day, for example you may wish to go for an evening cruise after work with food and drink supplied by Salty Dog Yacht Charter, this makes planning that much easier because guests are not having to take time off work. Because we are located at the entrance to Portsmouth harbour you can be sailing within a few minutes of leaving the berth.

Anton is a commercially-endorsed, fully qualified RYA Yachtmaster with in-depth knowledge and experience of sailing in the Solent and beyond.

Skippered charters cost an additional £140 per day. For overnight or longer cruises, please remember that the skipper requires a cabin.

We have two yachts available, Antara and Katabatic.

Sailing is a sport which requires teamwork and corporate sailing days are an ideal way to build teams through shared experiences.


Entertaining your clients has never been easier! Let Salty Dog Yacht Charter arrange everything for you, from food and drink to an itinerary that will give your guests a day to remember all inclusive packages including boat hire and food.



Reward your key employees or most successful teams with bespoke sailing days. What better way than on a 45ft yacht powering through the Solent, stopping (for example) at Cowes for lunch and then back to Portsmouth in the afternoon.
