Private charter
Enjoy a beautiful Beneteau First 40 for a day or a longer adventure!

Winston doesn't spend her entire life racing – she is available for private inshore and offshore cruising or simply enjoying the delights of ports and creeks around the Solent.

From her berth in Port Hamble, in the centre of English yachting, Winston's cruising ground can extend beyond the Solent along the beautiful south coast, or across to France. As a high performance yacht, she makes fast passage times in comfort and safety, whether under sail or motor. She is MCA coded for charter with all the safety gear you will need.

Winston is fully equipped for luxurious, professionally crewed charter for up to ten guests for single day bookings. If you are planning an offshore cruise or to stay on board overnight, we recommend a maximum group of six as there are eight berths in three cabins and the saloon, and your skipper and mate will need berths too.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss options and prices, and we'll work out a fully inclusive package for you.

Please note that Winston is not available for bareboat charter unless a member of the group is a fully qualified and experienced, commercially endorsed and privately insured ocean yachtmaster.

Winston First 40 Yacht Charters is a two-year-old venture built around our own cherished First 40, but with access to more matched boats for larger or corporate events. We're totally focused on making our customers' experience memorable and enjoyable, and my personal aim is to provide the best service levels in the business!
