This is our third RIB Shack boat . Over the last 9 years Colin, Helen and the team have provided such an efficient and friendly service. The shared boat concept is a convenient and cost effective way of owning a Rib and getting onto the water. We love spending time on the water with friends and family exploring the Solent and having picnics or lunches

Shared boat ownership through RIB Shack is a brilliant concept - marinas are full of unused boats, which is both financially and environmentally inefficient. The team takes care of all the hassles of boat ownership, from insurance and servicing through to cleaning and incidental repairs, and will deliver the boat wherever you want it on the Solent. We are enjoying the amazing Axopar 37 for a similar ownership cost to a boat half the size!


I am really delighted with RIB Shack. The deal with RIB Shack gives me all the access I really need to an awesome boat at a fraction of the cost on a lock and leave basis - ie they take it away and look after it. The team are always available to help out and have been fantastic in finding me a boat even when it was not my week. Such a brilliant formula and so well managed by RIB Shack. Thank you!
