Our Flexible and friendly approach lends a new perspective to yacht charter. We depart at a time to suit you, usually after time for a leisurely breakfast and from then on we're on Spook Time.

Quite simply, we sail when YOU want to sail, we eat when YOU want to eat and we return whatever time YOU feel like doing so.

We depart from the historic Lymington river, past the picturesque salt grass marshes then the choice is yours.........

"This was the best week of my year by far, fun filled days in great company, perfect thanks to first class skippers Russ and Andy. I cannot recommend Sailing Spook highly enough"

Neeve M.O.  Chichester

Russ Yeatman (Business Owner / Skipper / Cleaner) 

on  COVID-19 

"I truly believe we have one of the safest and cleanest yachts it is possible to have. The configuration of the boat with 5 toilets and 6 sinks allows us to provide each household and the crew with dedicated facilities which they do not have to share with others and the size of the yacht at over 16m long and 4m wide provides a great amount of space allowing everyone to "Social Distance" whilst aboard. 

Along with dozens of hand sanitisers and anti bacterial sprays we also carry 1000 litres of fresh water so there is never a shortage of hot water for cleaning hands and surfaces and the yacht is thoroughly deep cleaned between each trip.

As a business we have fully committed to Covid Secure and carried out a detailed and thorough Covid-19 Risk Assessment. Many of our existing procedures and safety measures were clearly helping already with this and we have put a number of additional hygiene measuers in place to make us even more robust in this area. We are also operating with reduced numbers and larger gaps between trips right now to help minimise risks to everyone.  All 4 main crew members live with high risk people and so whichever 2 are aboard we are all extremely focused on hygiene.

I firmly believe that being an outdoor activity with good solid procedures in place Sailing Spook is one of the best places to be right now and as a person with a very vulnerable child I feel totally at ease being on the yacht."
