Symphony Sailing

Charter Company , Gosport, Hampshire, England, UK

Chartering a yacht with or without a skipper opens up a world of adventure. The Solent is the ideal place to go sailing. Skippered or bareboat, our fleet of yachts give you an excellent choice.

Yachts can be chartered for a day, a weekend or longer. We pride ourselves on our service so why not think about trying something different for your next short break.

RYA Training

RYA practical sailing courses are the best way to learn to sail or to improve your sailing knowledge and abilities while gaining qualifications and building sea miles.

All our courses are run by Wetstuff, a RYA approved training centre. They offer all RYA practical and theory courses from competent crew through to Yachtmaster. Being based on the Solent allows them to provide the perfect training ground with many ports of call and many types of shipping and rates of tide.

Symphony Sailing prides itself in both the quality of its yachts, and in the quality of service. Your yacht will be equipped with everything you need for a first class charter, including such essentials which other charter companies only think of as luxuries, such as autohelm, plotter, heating, hot water, shower, and top-notch safety gear.

David and Louise Taylor have many thousands of miles of experience of commercial sailing (skipper and watch leader), offshore and inshore racing and extencive cruising.

David and Louise manage the charter aspects of Symphony sailing, and look after the fleet of yachts. We know the importance of customer service, and we pride ourselves on our relationships with customers, many of whom have come to us for their charter needs for many years.

Not any old yacht can be a Symphony yacht; we look for yachts that could be your own; smart, tidy,m well maintained and always excellently eqipped with luxuries such as heating, hot water, TV, plotter, autohelm and teak decks.

Even if the perfect yacht for you is not shown on our site, please contact us, as we can source other yachts to meet your needs.

Symphony Sailing is a RYA Training Centre. The Centre principal is Stephen Wilks, MCA / RYA, Yachtmaster Instructor, Commercially Endorsed as master up to 200 tonne sail.

The Centre is based at the heart of Gosport Marina in Portsmouth Harbour, 10 minutes from the Solent.

Steve has an ability to teach not many can match, built on over 10 years of instructing on and under the water. (He is also a SCUBA instructor).

From a complete novice to Yachtmaster, after taking a course with Steve, you will have greater ability, understanding and confidence in all aspects of your sailing.

Students completing courses are confident in their own ability and competent in all aspects of the RYA curriculum. More than that, they want to go and practice these new found skills; to enjoy sailing to the full.

Outboards, spinnakers and waterproofs are available for hire, as are professional skippers if you prefer to let someone else guide you around the Solent and South coast.
