Hello from Edinburgh

Hi all,

I recently moved to Edinburgh - Scotland and I am looking for a rib to hire to visit the Forth of Firth (ideally a bare boat or with a skipper that let me drive it ).

If you have any contacts, I would be much obliged

Thank you very much, nice to join this forum.

There are virtually no bareboat rib charters in Scotland. (search here for 2 ? on the west). There are skippered rib charters available. The one which springs to mind in the forth is Welcome to Calypso Marine. BUT like all skippered stuff it wont be cheap. You may be better looking at instruction...

Edinburgh Boat Charters may be able to help. Not sure about the driving bit, but check them out.
Edinburgh Boat Charters ยป Bridges & Islands Express (RIB)
Is that with or without VAT?
