Lymington Yacht Haven has announced the launch of a new boat club offering customers the chance to use a fleet of brand new, high quality motorboats for a fixed annual fee.
The boat club concept, which is growing in popularity in the UK, offers a flexible way to get on the water without the responsibility of boat ownership. Members at the Lymington Boat Club will get unlimited use of their fleet which includes three brand new boats;
- 'Mistral' - 6.5m Gemini RIB
- 'Bora' - Merry Fisher 695
- 'Diablo' - Axopar 28 T-Top.
Marina Director Rupert Wagstaff believes the Lymington Boat Club will offer the most complete and luxury service for customers wanting a relaxed boating experience; “Our aim is to offer everything you’d want for a day on the water. From fishing equipment and tuition, to hiring Stand Up Paddleboards or inflatable toys for towing. Our fleet will be fully-serviced, immaculately maintained and fuelled up so customers can simply step onboard and go boating”.
With a recent British Marine study showing a large group of potential boaters not knowing how to get on the water, or not wanting the long term commitment of boat ownership, Rupert believes the Boat Club concept will satisfy the needs of these potential boaters. “As well as re-engaging former boat owners who want a more flexible use of a boat, the Lymington Boat Club will aim to make it much easier for new boaters to get on the water. As part of our club, members will be given their RYA Level 2 Powerboat training, a 1-2-1 induction on the fleet, all the safety equipment they’ll need and the chance to join cruises to popular Solent destinations so they can learn to navigate around the Solent”.
Coded to MCA standard, the boats come with all the safety equipment needed including lifejackets. The boats are professionally maintained and members don't need prior experience to joining. Members will be provided with their RYA Level 2 Powerboat Qualification as part of their membership, along with a 1-2-1 induction on each boat prior to their first use.

The Lymington Boat Club is the 2nd club launched by Yacht Havens Group following the launch of Plymouth Boat Club in early 2018. After a successful first year, the Plymouth Boat Club expanded in early 2019 with a new XS 650 RIB joining the fleet for members to use.
