RIB Hire Costs
To hire a RIB you must hold a PB2 license or equivalent and be over 21 years of age.
The daily price to hire our RIB’s is as follows:
Single day rate: £230 per day
Insurance excess deposit: £500
Multiple day rate: £210 per day
R70 RIB (7.3m)
Single day rate: £380 per day
Insurance excess deposit: £1,000
Multiple day rate: £360 per day
To firm up a booking you will need to complete a RIB hire agreement and provide a copy of your PB2 license and some ID. We will need to take a booking deposit of 1/3 of the total cost of the hire at the booking. The balance of the RIB hire and the insurance excess deposit will be payable prior to the hire starting.
A multiple day rate will apply when 3 or more consecutive days are booked on the same RIB.
Both our 6.5 and R70 can carry a max of 8 persons, but we recommend 6 for comfort and fuel economy
Fuel costs are not included in our hire fee. Our boats will be handed over with a full tank of fuel. It is up to the renter to keep them fuelled during your hire. We can advise of the nearest fuel stations. The boats have fuel gauges and fuel used meters supplied by the engine management system which are 95% accurate crew weight and weather condition depending to help you keep an eye on the fuel usage. If hiring from Cowes, we ask if possible that the renter refuels at the fuel station on their way back to the marina. If the renter is based on one of our offshore Seaview area moorings, to return the boat with a reasonable amount of fuel in the fuel tank, we will top up and charge you the remainder on your return.
