Corporate days out

Frolika’ is the ideal boat for a corporate day out on the Solent.

Up to 11 guests can enjoy the day in luxury and comfort aboard our 44’ Bavaria Yacht. We are the ideal charter operator if you are looking to accommodate up to 20 guests on the water (on 2 boats). Our size means that we can concentrate on offering a more personalised approach.

We understand that every company’s needs are bespoke so we can offer a tailored package to suit. That may even include accommodation the night before either in a local hotel or a stay on board? Staying the night before obviates the need for an early start avoids the traffic and allows you to make the most of your forthcoming day out.

In our experience over the last 10 years we’ve found that most corporate clients prefer a simpler approach to the catering. Most avoid expensive gourmet options and prefer instead to opt for perhaps a good selection of cold meats, cheeses, pickles and salads or prefer instead to take their party ashore to Cowes or Buckers Hard and sample the local fayre at one of the many hostelries or restaurants.

This slightly simpler approach takes nothing away from the day and allows more time for interaction/sailing and general mouth watering enjoyment. Our sensible and competitive charging structure allows even the most modest corporations to occasionally ‘push the boat out’.

A typical day

As a suggestion a typical day on the water aboard FROLIKA’ may include;

09.00 – 09.30 a.m Climb aboard and meet the skipper and boat. Coffee and biscuits on arrival. Fruit bowl. Optional Bacon butties.
10.00- 10.30 a.m After a comprehensive introduction to the boat and safety briefing, leave the berth and make our way out of Hythe Marina. We encourage, indeed, request some participation from any willing crew members. It is not unusual for a member of the crew to be offered the helm ‘from the off’ (under close supervision of course).
10.30- 13.30 The morning is spent sailing or alternatively on simple team building exercises, whilst making our way towards our lunch destination.
13.30 15.00 p.m Lunch at anchor in one of the local anchorages or alternatively moored in a marina disembark for lunch in the pub or restaurant.
15.00 hrs Homeward bound with the intention of arriving back between 17.00 – 18.00 hrs
17.00- 18.00 hrs Time permitting afternoon tea and cake whilst tied up in our home port to disembarking.

Guests leave with a bag of sea stories, a sack of laughs and happy having spent time with a jolly crew at sea.

Other options may be to add a hi speed rib for a few hours to allow your guests to mix sedate sailing with hi speed power.
