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.

We are considering buying a cruising yacht so my partner and I joined Winston for a mile-building and experience-gathering voyage from Devon to the Solent, making a landfall in Weymouth. We had a wonderful weekend, learnt a great deal from Winston's attentive crew, and truly caught the bug!
