Review of our Corporate Day Charter

We love hearing customer feedback. Another Fantastic review to share,thank you for the kind words and fabulous photos @sup_loving_gill

‘Last weekend I had the best day with my work family. I organised an awesome social event and the whole day was perfect, even the weather was spot on! We had a chartered traditional motor yacht for the day and Seafin Charters took us over to the I.O.W where we anchored up to get the jet skis and paddleboards out, then they laid on a beautiful lunch and drinks were flowing whilst we sailed over to Buckler\'s Hard. The 7.5 hours literally flew by but I guess that’s just the sign of a fab day!

Totally recommend Seafin Charters if it's something you're looking into! 5* service from the crew’

The Southampton Boat Show 2021

We were delighted that The Boat Show returned to local shores in September 2021 for its 52nd edition. A unique place to see the best boats and marine brands all gathered together in one place, the Southampton Boat Show remains to be Britain\'s biggest boating festival.

And for the first time in 2021, the Boat Show showcased an exciting new layout, with 6 amazing zones to explore packed full of boats, gear, advice, and demos! Seafin returned to exhibit in Ocean Hall, where the team showcased Seafin who belongs to our fleet of yachts at Hamble Point Yacht Charters.

Our friendly team alternated days on the exhibit, we took along our rebranded and refreshed boat specifications for each of the yachts on the fleet and our rebranded business cards to hand out at the show. With this being the first show back since the pandemic stuck footfall seemed lighter than previous years but the team still managed to hand out all our yacht charter brochures throughout the duration of the show, which was a first for us, showing that UK sailing and staycations for the coming season appear to still be a hugely popular choice.

If you popped in to say hi to the team, thank you, we loved seeing everyone!
