Beautiful Boat and Great Hospitality
The boat is gorgeous and the marina and Haven restaurant are great. John was a wonderful host and tremendously accommodating. The boat was set up with water, muesli and tea/coffee so we didn't have to do anything upon arrival except enjoy ourselves. The Lymington marina has everything one needs to clean up (even hairdryers.) Would definitely stay on the boat looked after by John again!
We had the most wonderful weekend staying on board Budeena -a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 49i. Budeena was beautifully maintained and wonderfully equipped. Our host - John - stocked the fridge with milk, orange, cider, bottled water and breakfast cereal. The Yacht Haven Marina is in a class of its own and they have just spent a million pounds on refurbishing the WC and shower block which is evident when you use them. The first floor Bistro - overlooking the Marina - is 'decked out' with a Marine feeling and the food was glorious. You're also only 15 minutes walk from Lymington along the sea front where on a Saturday there is a bustling market on both sides of the road all the way up the cobbled sea front. There are also many eateries and the whole place has a feeling of being really special. We will return again without question and highly recommend Budeena, Yacht Haven Marina and Lymington. Thanks John - see you very soon.
We had a fabulous stay on board John's boat- it was absolutely stunning inside, very homely and a lovely touch to have water- milk and cereal provided. The beds must have been memory foam? So soft and comfortable and slept incredibly well, thank you.
Lovely family weekend
We stayed on board Shabeene for a long weekend over October half-term, and couldn’t have made a better choice. Great boat, great location, and fantastic facilities - even the weather was kind! The joining instructions were really straightforward, and John (Arnie) and Lucy were both on hand to answer any queries - they even provided fishing tackle for the kids. The boat was warm and cosy, and provided the perfect base for exploring Lymington and the New Forest. Highly recommended.
One night in Lymington
Had a great weekend in Lymington. Drove down from London to explore all the marinas on the south coast, Port Solent, Poortsmouth, Poole etc. Our owner (Arnie) upgraded us to a Jenneau 54 which was in impeccable condition. Arnie was a great host and recommended a few local spots to explore. He owns LYC Charters and has 24 boats in this marina so a good man to know if you want a night on board in Lyminton. Lymington Marina has just won 2016 Marina of the year award and you can see why.. on the edge of the new forest the setting is really peaceful.. great little village. The shower facities are the same quality as a good five star hotel and the Marina bar and restaurant with the gas fireplace burning away in the evening makes for a great hang out. Looking forward to another weekend down there.
Excellent stay in Lymington on a first class yacht. The booking arrangements were efficient and John most welcoming when we arrived. The boat was a perfect place to stay as part of our weekend of dinghy racing at Lymington Town SC.I will be in touch again next time we are in Lymington. Cheers Duncan and Harriet. . afa
Fabulous boat in a fabulous location
We are a family of 4 with young boys and felt right at home during our stay.
We had an amazing experience booking through beds on board. Our host John (Arnie) was extremely helpful in assisting me with a surprise birthday treat! This was a last minute booking, Arnie responded promptly to my questions through the "contact the owner " section on the site. The arrival was made all the easier by Arnie staying in contact and meeting us at the marina and showing us on board his beautiful yacht. I would not hesitate to book through this site in the future as the whole experience was faultless. Thank you so much.
Me and my friends had a great stay on board this beautiful yacht. Arnie made us feel really welcome and I would definitely recommend LYC
