Bareboat - Cornwall

Hello all,

Does anyone know of someone who does bareboat charters in the Cornwall area that I don't have to pay through the nose for to use freely and not just in a restricted area?

Any help would be appreciated

How far do you need to go? Charter RIBs are likely to be coded to Category 4 which allows use up to 20 miles from any safe haven in good weather and daylight, although some may be Category 5 which allows 20 miles from a single nominated departure point.

None of them are going to be cheap though, with upwards of 300 per day being the going rate.

There are two or three companies in Plymouth that will hire a rib out. Solent rib charter, Plymouth powerboat school and South West rib charter.

Only know of one at Falmouth, Cornish Cruising - Rib Charter

Looks like there's a very tidy Ribquest available out of Fowey: http://foweymaritimecentre.com/rib-charter-2/

I contacted the guy at Fowey and he told me they no longer offer Bareboat they just haven't updated their site.

I'm not bothered for going too far but the ones I have found that are reasonable
On price are restricted to Carrick Roads which is frustrating as just outside the hire area there are some beautiful stretches of coast.

I even considered a fibreglass speedboat but the one I found hasn't replied and to be fair it doesn't offer the same flexibility as the RIB does it
