I donít know if Ian does bare boat but might be worth a go C2RIBS - Rib boat hire for events pleasure and media filming
Otherwise I know Solent Boat Charters Training For UK Yacht Charter, Rib Hire, RYA do bareboat.

The most reasonably priced bareboat RIBs are from Bembridge Marine, but I don't know if they would deliver to Portsmouth for you.

Solent RIB Charter are more of a premium offering, based out of Lymington but may be able to to Portsmouth too.

Correct Wightcliff to Needles is the limit for the non coded boats. Not many places in UK you can run non coded boats, we are lucky in that respect.
