Rib wanted for TV shoot!

Hi there,

My name is Fi and I work for a TV production company called Knickerbockerglory. We are currently making a new travel documentary series for a major UK terrestrial channel, which will also be sold around the world, about sailing around the UK, the working title is 'Britain By Boat'.

Here's a little more information:

- Filming is scheduled for 4 weeks in late June / early July 2018 (see dates below).

- We are looking for ideally a motor boat, rib or power cruiser, with a cabin, that can house our director, back up skipper and presenters when they are unable to use their yacht.

- We have our own skipper to captain the boat, or we could use one of yours. We can either keep the boat in the water on the transfer days or take it out of the water and drive it to the next location. During the filming stretches we will be in port each night.

- We will pay for food and lodging and travel for the skipper as well as fee.

If this sounds like something you might be interested in helping us with, in any capacity, drop me an email on

I look forward to hearing from you!

I don't think they'll be cheap,

They appear to be an arm of Solent Rib Charter.

We have a cabin RHIB but I don't think the local community would look too kindly if I hired out our rescue vessel for nearly a month right in the middle of silly season.
A boat is not truly yours until you start fixing the things that you have personally broken.
