Saltwater’s Salcombe Boat Hire
If you’re looking for a different kind of day out with the family or a group of friends, then why not charter your own 40ft motor cruiser and professional crew from Saltwater’s Salcombe boat hire and make it a day you will never forget.
The area has a huge amount for you to see and do from the comfort of your own luxury motor boat. Your skipper Peter has over 30 years experience of cruising in South Devon which means he can take you to all the best spots; the most picturesque coastal villages, quiet secluded bays and beaches, pubs and restaurants with the freshest and tastiest local food and beautiful views of the coastline that many people never get to see.
A Day Out Down the Coast
If you want to escape and do something a little different for the day, then we’ll make sure everyone in your group has a fantastic day to remember, no matter how young or old. Boat hire in Salcombe itself allows you to enjoy the beautiful soft sandy beaches and secluded bays where you can soak up the sunshine at anchor and have swim.
For the full experience of having your own motorboat and crew then a full day out will give you the chance to power out of Salcombe and visit the lovely coastal town of Dartmouth. Its an exhilarating trip along the coast, enjoying the fresh sea air from the flybridge or staying warm and cosy inside the spacious and comfortable saloon.
Choose Where You Stop for Lunch
Dartmouth town is a great place to stop for lunch or grab an ice cream before exploring a little further up the river Dart. If you want to bring along a picnic to enjoy on board, then you can anchor off one the beaches or enjoy your food as you travel up the scenic River Dart. There are pubs by the river where you can stop off for a drink along the way and if the tide is right on the day you can get all the way up to Totnes where there’s another pub by the water which serve tasty local food.
Your Captain for the Day
You’re in very safe hands with our skipper Peter Wiliamson who is a highly qualified RYA Commercial Yachtmaster with over 40 years at the helm, most of those along the South Devon and Cornish coastline so he really does know all the best secret spots.
Your Boat for the Day
Your boat will be our 40ft motor cruiser Intrigue who is coded my the Marine & Coastguard Agency (MCA) to carry up to 12, so that’s 2 crew plus your group of up to 10 guests.
If the weather is hot and sunny you can bask in the sun on top of the loungers on our flybridge, put your feet up in the comfort of our cockpit or lay out a towel and sunbathe on the forward decks.
Hot and sunny in England? As you can see from some of the photos we have some gorgeous days out on the water, in fact there’s nowhere better to be when its sunny.
But don’t worry if the weather’s not so hot and sunny. We have a warm and comfortable saloon where your whole group can relax, eat and drink and enjoy the cruise just as much. Some of the most enjoyable trips our clients have enjoyed have been when the weather hasn’t been so kind, as you can read here on our testimonials page.
