About Us

Welcome to Hamble River Boat Charter

IMG_1335

Project Gull was conceived to allow people to explore the beauty of the River Hamble who did not own their own boat, obviously we needed a boat and electric power seemed a green and nicely quiet way to explore. If you turn up your sound you can hear from the video how quiet she is. So the old Hamble ferry has been reborn. From our base in Hamble River Boat Yard we are positioned nicely in the centre of the easily explored River Hamble. Gull seats a maximum of 12 although 8 is probably more practical and is electric powered and easily helmed.  

Important Information about Tides

Being a tidal river means that the tide dictates where you can go on any particular day. Not bothered which way? Then don’t worry about checking tide times. Want to explore the tranquilly of the Upper Hamble then look to start your hire about two hours before High Water and with a large tide you may even get as far as the Horse & Jockey pub which offers a tranquil setting for a swift glass of something before the tide turns and you need to leave.

Testimonials

  • Together with my cousins and of course Millie we hired Gull the revamped Hamble Ferry from Hamble River Boat Charter. She is beautiful with a quiet electric engine to cruise the river. Took me back years riding in her, I remember well Ray driving her backwards and forwards across the River with bikes across her bow. With virtually no draft we got nearly up to Botley Mill and then had a stop off at the Horse and Jockey. Had a lovely picnic on the banks of the River which I love so much before returning to the berth. I would recommend hiring Gull I will be doing so many more times to play swallows and amazons.
