An irresistible invitation

A luxury day on a beautiful yacht in the sheltered waters of the Solent is an invitation which is hard to resist. Not only is Southampton only a little over an hour from London by train, it is also the gateway to the Solent, the New Forest and the Isle of Wight; an area of outstanding natural beauty and the acknowledged heart of English yachting. This is where the yachts we charter are based.

Over a quarter of a century of excellence

First Charters have been providing top quality yachts to discerning clients since 1982 and we have learnt how to deliver an experience which at the very least meets our guests' expectations and invariably exceeds them. Whether they want to steer and trim the sails or relax and let us look after them, we aim to create a memorable and stylish occasion for all on board. Excellent catering is of course essential to the success of the day and First Charters work closely with the best local suppliers to ensure our guests' total satisfaction.

At your service

The yacht must be immaculate, of course, and we have never had anything other than compliments on our flagship “Beam”. However, our Skipper and crew will also manage your occasion in a way that inspires the guests' confidence and deliver service standards which match the quality of the yacht herself.

Support craft

RIBs are a popular option on corporate hospitality days. These versatile craft can explore the backwaters and provide high speed fun for the more adventurous. You can also use them to take close-up photographs of your yacht under full sail which make excellent gifts for your guests.
