About Us


RIB Charters for You in The Solent and The Isle of Wight.

Southampton RIB Charter and Portsmouth RIB Charter was created from a passion and love for the water, and the journeys it can take you on. It has been a long time in the making, starting off as a dream the owner had as a child, and who has now been able to bring to life in his older(ish) years.

Let’s first talk about our leading skipper and owner of Southampton RIB Charter. Although born in the UK he maintains he is Greek! With Greek parents and strong family roots from Athens and the Aegean Islands his heart has always belonged to the sea. His ancestors and parents are heavily involved with shipping, being on board ships and surrounded by water was his first love. Every summer over the years have and continue to be spent in the water, on the water or by the water. This led to activities such as Scuba diving, snorkelling and countless boat trips. At every opportunity there will be a boat involved in one way or another.


All our skippers hold a Commercially Endorsed Advanced Powerboat Licence with all the relevant safety certificates including Sea Survival, First Aid and VHF use, which have been all certified by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA). Rest assured you are in safe hands, but if you have any queries then we will be happy to discuss these with you.


The main event is of course “Aquatherapy” our Highfield Patrol 860. It has a 250hp Honda Outboard engine and can reach top speeds of up to 35 knots whilst having the style, quality, comfort and performance that the Highfield brand is well known for. “Aquatherapy” is based at Hamble Point Marina which has direct access to The Solent. There are on site and local amenities as well as plenty of free parking. Don’t worry if this location is not convenient as we can also arrange other pick up points if preferred, for example Ocean Village, Hythe Marina,  Gunwharf Quays or most other marinas in The Isle of Wight and Solent area. The RIB is licensed to hold 12 guests as well as 2 crew. We look forward to welcome you on board. If your party exceeds 12 panic not, we have our two Ribeye 785s, "Aquaholic" based in Hamble Point Marina and "Aquadiction" which is based in Portsmouth.  We can arrange additional RIBs’s or yachts for even larger groups if required.


Southampton RIB Charter offers a journey to meet all your needs in and around The Solent and The Isle of Wight area. We enjoy creating tailor made trips as well as offer some most common requested trips from 2 hours to a full day on the water. Our RIBs are the perfect way to create memories on the water for small or larger groups, on a stag or hen party, corporate events or just a family day out. We will be sure to create a trip that suits your personal requirements.



Taking a journey by boat offers a completely different perspective, you can discover places that are only accessible by water, you can view the shore line and its beauty in all seasons, it allows you to see a place from other angles and arrive at your destination in style.


Your journey is our destination.
