Sunset Rib Charter


Rib Blast

This two hour blast from Lymington Yacht Haven is the perfect way to experience the Solent at a stunning time of day without breaking the bank. A perfect option for family or friends, or as an activity for those holidaying in the New Forest.

With the sun setting over the western Solent, blasting down to the Needles is a spectacular way to spend a summer evening!

You need a minimum of eight people in your party and we can fit up to eleven on each boat. After you have filled one boat then you need eight passengers on each subsequent boat.

Please note that part of the reason Ribs are so exciting is that they are dynamic and the ride will therefore vary with sea conditions. This activity is definitely not suitable for anybody with a knee, neck, hip or back injury or anybody who has consumed alcohol.

There are no age restrictions; we are happy to carry toddlers and have a range of life jackets to fit all youngsters but please do let us know in advance if your party includes children.

Exact times will depend on when the sun sets for the date you have chosen.
