What We Do

Our Shared Boat Ownership and Management Scheme offers you a 25% share in stunning, highly spec’d Ribeye RIB's or Axopar cabin boats in the Southampton and Solent areas, giving you real boat ownership without the hassle.

All of our boats are professionally maintained and managed by us, so your only job is to sit back, relax and enjoy the boating lifestyle that you have always dreamed of. There are no limitations or restrictions on how you want to use your boat; all you need is a passion for getting out there on the water. Our scheme guarantees you full use of your boat for one week in four. We also take care of the sale of the boat or your share in the boat, and you receive the sales proceeds for your share, making our shared boat ownership scheme very cost-effective.

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!
