Rib-it Rib Hire and Rib Charter Services logo



Ribs are expensive to buy, berth, maintain, insure and operate; also the British summer is very short! Please don’t think that the charter of a Rib is going to be cheap.

If you are looking for a high quality long established Rib operator with decent boats that are well maintained, who has no loans or marine mortgages and which is not going to go bust having collected your deposit, then please do give us a ring!

Almost all of our charters are ‘bespoke’ so it is difficult to publish a meaningful price list – it really is better to talk through your prospective charter.

If you have an RYA powerboat level 2 qualification undertaken recently at a coastal establishment or an International Certificate of Competence and you and have meaningful experience of the Solent waters, then bareboat charter (without a skipper) may be an option.
