Who are we

RIB Shack Marine is a family run shared boat ownership business located in the Southampton and Solent area. We have been providing boating solutions for over 20 years to ensure that everyone has access to the luxury boating lifestyle of their dreams.

We help people choose the boat that is right for them and fits in with their lifestyle, enabling them to make unforgettable memories with friends and family, and enjoy much needed time to relax and de-stress.

How it started

We understand that many people desire to have their own boat but just don’t have the time to use it as often as they would like.

We first started RIB Shack Marine from personal experience of purchasing a boat ourselves, only to find out we could not use it nearly as often as we would have liked. We wanted to create a way to overcome the problem of wanting real boat ownership but not having the time to make full use of it. From this, we started our scheme of enabling owners to purchase a 25% share in a quality boat, which guarantees them a minimum of 13 weeks use a year.

Your dream boat is waiting for you

We choose our fleet carefully to bring you high quality and stunning boats that suit the luxury boating lifestyle.

We have a selection of highly spec’d Axopar Cabins and Ribeye RIB’s that will suit everyone’s requirements, whether you are looking for high action watersports, family days out, or just want a place to relax in the sun. The Axopar cabins offer the ability to sleep on board, so overnight stays during your week are also possible.

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!
