Charter this safe and fast twin-engined motor boat, which is licensed for up to 7 passengers, for a unique day out from Weymouth. Tour the 2012 Olympic Sailing venues, Portland Bill and the glorious Dorset Jurassic Coast. Poole, the Solent and the Channel Islands are also accessible should you wish.
A typical day could be to join the boat in Weymouth Marina about 0915, depart under the 1000 Town Bridge for a tour of Weymouth Bay and Portland harbours. See the Jurassic coast from the best possible viewpoint, including inside Durdle Door and Man-0-War Bay - visit Lulworth Cove and (if the danger ranges are open) have lunch in Warbarrow Bay.
You can swim from the bathing platform at the back, and on whole day trips, there is an inflatable dinghy with outboard available for shore excursions. A bespoke programme will be constructed to suit your personal requirements. This is not a standard "sit in the back of a boat round the harbour" trip with other tourists. You will be the sole clients and the boat is yours for the duration of the trip.
If your party is larger than 7 people, it is possible to arrange a twin boat charter. The cost for the second boat is identical, but in addition to, chartering Sirius. The boats will operate together and passengers can change boats half way through the trip at Lulworth if desired.
Charter Sirius from £60 per hour all inclusive, with significantly discounted rates for family groups, and half day (4 hour) or whole day (8 hour) trips.
Have a go at driving Sirius under the supervision of the skipper who is a highly experienced RYA Yachtmaster Instructor in both power and sail, and has 34 years experience of these waters.
Sirius has an onboard toilet compartment, twin berths forward, and a galley with cooker and grill. She is licensed for 7 passengers and carries the full range of required Maritime and Coastguard Agency safety equipment, including buoyancy aids for small children. We can operate in up to a Force 8 gale (should you wish to experience one!), but the options available on the day will obviously be weather dependent.
Tea and coffee plus hot water will be provided all day. but please bring your own picnic meal. However, we might catch some mackerel with the onboard fishing lines, and smoke or grill them for lunch; you will never experience more delicious or fresher seafood.
Evening trips to watch the firework displays or cruise to Lulworth Cove are also available. Bring your wine and enjoy an unforgettable holiday experience.
