Overnight stay on Fairline Targa 30 , Taboa.
So glad we found this website! As it gave us the opportunity to stay on the boat of our dreams, at a relatively small price. The boat was immaculate with all facilities like a self catering apartment which enabled us to cook ourselves an evening meal which we ate in the sunshine on board. Joe was very welcoming and through with the handover and a very nice guy to deal with. Throughly would recommend this experience to anyone instead of choosing a hotel or self catering apartment. We would certainly return again to rent this boat to stay sometime.
Great stay on board the Targa 30 for southampton boat show
Communication was excellent, once we arrived at the marina, Joe met us and took us over to his boat. Joe explained all we needed to know for our stay and we enjoyed a full day and night aboard, apart from going out to get some food and some wine for a really relaxed evening. The position is great in the marina, right next to the toilets and shower block which are very modern although the boat has these facilities on board. Great experience and I urge everyone to try it.
Joseph was an excellent host, the boat was exceptionally clean and laid out well with all amenities. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending a stay on Taboa.
Taboa - Fairline Targa 30
I had a fantastic stay on 'Taboa' with my family during the Southampton Boat show week, the boat was immaculately presented and moored in a perfect spot in the marina right next to the equally immaculate shower blocks which were preferable to the slightly cramped heads on the boat. The owner, Joe, was very pleasant and met me at the boat at the beginning of my stay, he went through how everything works (it was all very simple) and left me to it. He had left the boat warm and inviting complete with clean bedding, fresh towels, bottled water, tea, coffee and milk. All in all, I couldn't be happier with my stay and would love to come back again sometime!
The owner (Joe) responded very quickly to our e-mails and meet us at the time promised. It was easy to find the location and the Hythe ferry was just a 10 min walk. We actually went over to the IOW for dinner and the red jet ferry was really quick. Facilities on the boat and location were fantastic. Very clean and the people around very friendly. The boat was in excellent condition and our two boys (4 and 7 years old) loved it. When we arrived the beds were made ready and there was tea, coffee and milk which was great. They also offer a charter option which I am sure next time we may book this up. Thanks for a great stay and we will be back I am sure.
Targa - Southampton Boat Show
Joe the owner was extremely helpful. The boat was immaculate and provided an ideal base for the Boat Show. Would highly recommend.
Accommodation for the boat show
We were looking for accommodation for the boat show, Joseph's boat provided just what we were looking for. A good size for 3 of us, and Joseph was very flexible about what time we checked in, which was a great help to us. The marina is well located, with good facilities and just a short walk to Hythe town centre.
Great location in Hythe marina which is a short walk into town or you can use the restaurant and bar facilities in the marina itself. Our host Joesph was very accommodating and met us as arranged for a quick show around etc. Hythe ferry takes you straight into Southampton for a few quid too.
Wonderful boat with a lovely owner who was very helpful and happy to meet our needs. This is where we chose to spend our wedding night and we are so glad we did. Epic experience. 1st class accomodation.
1 night stay.
Amazing from start to finish. The owner Joe is so nice and very helpful. Even offered to bring x box controllers and games down for my 12 year old son to play on. Thanks joe
This is our first-time experience in Yacht , beautiful location and fantastic looking Yacht was very welcoming. In general, we had a lovely time , Yacht was clean and tidy. Will definitely look for re-visit in summer.
We absolutely loved our weekend on Ballena. A very lovely boat. Joe got the boat all warm before we arrived and explained all that we needed to know and then left us to it. Had a lovely weekend traveling by ferry to Southampton and Cowes. My children and I did not want to leave. Would love to return in the future.
We really enjoyed our stay on the boat. It's in a great condition and the marina is really nice with a great location. Highly recommended!
Great location. Joe was great. Spotless, comfortable, perfect.
