Stay on a boat in Southampton, United Kingdom
CHARTERS PLUS ARE READY TO WELCOME YOU ABOARD WHILE RESPECTING ALL ADDITIONAL COVID SAFETY MEASURES.
Since the easing of lockdown, plans for staycations were underway and on the increase with more families looking to avoid the hassle and stresses of busy airports, crowded hotels and the fear of being stranded abroad or returning home to a 14 day isolation.
A stay aboard, a charter, or both, is the ideal way for maintaining social distancing whilst enjoying the peace and tranquillity of the open sea or the relaxed environment of the only UK 5* marina at Ocean Village, Southampton.
A boating holiday is out in the open air. The marina is uncrowded and you only share the boat with people from your own bubble. You can bring food with you, or shop in the small supermarkets close to your boat or enjoy a meal out at many of the COVID safe restaurants at the marina or out were ever your charter takes you. You do not have to mix with strangers on the pontoon any more than if you went out for a walk at home.
We have in place extra cleaning measures to help keep you and your loved ones safe while aboard. All touch points are double cleaned before and after each stay aboard or charter. For Extra added protection we have also introduced the regular use of a Sanitising Mist which is registered and tested to EN 1276, EN 1650 and EN 14476. It is also approved and certified to kill Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) – the cause of COVID 19.
When activated it releases an ultrafine sanitising mist, which reaches and covers every surface area including those that are hard or impossible to reach, eliminating microscopic pathogens. It also kills germs responsible for colds, flu, staph infections and MRSA and leaving a safe and healthier environment.
These measures go above and beyond the guidelines set out by government and the Maritime Agency.
If you are not able to go on a Charters Plus Charter or Stay aboard holiday due to Government direction you will be able to:
move your holiday to a later date with no amendment charge; or receive a full no quibble refund.

Overnight on the Ramosseas
My husband and I spent a night aboard the Ramosseas in summer with our two children and it really did exceed expectations. The Ramosseas is incredibly well-designed and laid out, with generous-sized cabins and living area. Meals can be eaten in the living room, the stern deck and flybridge, which if you're a landlubber like me, is basically the roof terrace! The ingeniously compact, comprehensive kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals so we didn't have to tear ourselves away, and Ocean Village has plenty of supermarkets to grab meals. The Ramosseas has TVs in each bedroom and the living area, as well as a PS2 and DVDs. The marina itself is really lovely, full of bars and restaurants that fall quiet exactly at the moment you want to go to turn in! As for sleep, we all slept exceptionally well, probably better than at home. The almost imperceptible movement of the waves is clearly very soothing! Rather than using the en-suite facilities on board as the boat was of course moored, we showered in the washroom at MDL Marina's Ocean Village marina office. It was the MDL staff who handed over and took back the keys, showed us around the boat and helped with any queries, which was very reassuring. Owner David was also available if we needed him - again, very reassuring when you're not used to boats. All the neighbours were very friendly and helpful too and the children had great fun exploring the Ramosseas in their new life jackets and watching boats coming in and out of the marina. Breakfast on the flybridge was a highlight. We were very sad to leave and do hope to be back for another visit soon. Excitingly, David told us that the Ramosseas is now available for charter so next time we'll get to see what she can do in open water! Thanks Beds on Board for arranging a truly unique and luxurious stay.
Perfect Vessel and location
We had a lovely stay aboard the Ramoseas. Its in a great location with full marina facilities available. Clean washroom / showers etc. The boat is very spacious, clean and like new. David the owner was very informative and helpful. We would definitely recommend this and are already planning a return trip. Thank you David and family.
WOW! What an incredible yacht, absolutely immaculate and very spacious. David clearly takes great care of his yacht, he provided us with all the information prior to our arrival so we knew exactly where to go & what to do which made checking in and locating the yacht simple and straightforward. I would definitely recommend the Ramosseas to anyone considering staying on a boat. The neighbours were very welcoming and the marina was very pleasant with plenty of options if you did want to venture out. Massive thanks to David and we will definitely stay on the Ramosseas again!
Was a last minute booking and David done his upmost to fit us in, we arrived earlier than the 3pm arrival time stated but David allowed us to drop our stuff and get on with our short break. the Boat was spotless, clean and comfortable.everything and more that we needed.the location was excellent close to bars and restaurants.would recommend it 10/10
We wanted a few days away with the kids but wanted to do something different - and this was ideal! A beautiful boat with plenty of room for 4. Had everything we needed to use as a base to explore the area. Plenty of bars and restaurants close by to use for breakfast and evenings, and then sitting on the boat in the evenings with a glass of wine and just relaxing was just perfect! From the moment we made the enquiry, the process was efficient and easy. Communication with David was first class and any questions we had he answered almost straight away. Highly recommended and something we will definitely do again.
Lovely half-term break
Just had a fun four-day stay on Ramosseas. David was a great host; helpful information provided beforehand, hot water bottles left for the kids, and a check-in text on the first evening to make sure everything was ok. Perfect weather (considering it was Oct!) for go-karting and Monkey World trips was a bonus - more than enough to do on board and nearby.
Superb, Can't wait to return in the future.
Brilliant Stay, David was a super host. Clear communication throughout our stay. No issues whatsoever. The boat was immaculate and surpassed our expectations. Lovely location with plenty to do around the Marina. For myself the location was extra special, I even managed to get engaged on the boat in perfect surrounding's I would highly recommend. I will of course be returning in the future.
Our whole experience was very smooth indeed. The yacht was very stylish and roomy. A real shame we couldn’t stay longer. David, our host was informative; we knew exactly what to expect and certainly weren’t disappointed. Until next time......
Our stay on Ramosseas
We stayed on Ramosseas for one night, after a business dinner at the Harbour Hotel, we really enjoyed our stay, the boat was very clean, tidy and beautifully designed. The whole process from booking to checking out was all very easy and we had a lot of assistance from the owner, David Ramos. We would highly recommend this boat to anyone who is looking for a short trip to Ocean Village!
We stayed on Ramosseas for 1 night. It's a fantastic boat in a lovely location. The boat is immaculately clean and has everything you need on board. Great communication beforehand from David and easy check in with MDL marinas. Thankyou!
The booking completely met our expectations. The owner communicated very well beforehand, we were able to explain a special request which he was able to accommodate. Boat was modern, very clean, comfortable and well presented, with everything we needed for our stay. Ocean Village is always a good location, with friendly and helpful staff. The boat is located in the newly refurbished side of the marina and it's an easy walk to local restaurants and straight into Southampton.
Absolutely gorgeous yacht, everything you could want for a relaxing break in a lovely marina. No hassle booking. Very clean, the beds where so comfortable, very spacious, some lovely seating areas to soak up the sun. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be booking to go back.
Just back from a fantastic 2-night stay on board Ramosseas to celebrate my wife’s birthday. From the initial contact right through to when we left, David the owner couldn’t have made our stay more welcoming. He provided us with a great guide to staying on board and checked with us to make sure we were all okay. The boat was stunning and in beautiful condition and absolutely perfect for a special birthday treat. The cabins, salon and flybridge were all really comfortable and spacious and it made it a perfect setting to celebrate a special birthday. Thank you so much for agreeing to the kids staying too, they loved it! We will definitely be back😊.
Ramoseas ... Highly Recommended 19/08/2019 - 23/08/2019
This is a Great Boat ... in a Great location in ... in the renovated Part of Ocean Village, Southampton's Top Marina ... walk on the new synthetic decking out to the immaculate Ramoseas ... shes a cleverly designed boat with an extra wide beam and a huge upper deck considering the boat length. My daughter and I had a Fab week on her enjoying breakfast on the top deck overlooking the marina watching all the massive new 74 feet Sunseekers come and go with their charters for the day ... I would also comment that great care has been taken by David the owner with interior touches, upon entertaining the vessel (shoes off white carpet) she smell like spar because of some tastefully chosen scented reed diffusers, fresh clean towels and then at the end of the day when I went to bed i noticed that the bedding was top end 400 thread count Egyptian cotton ... the other bonus for our stay was that this boat is a stones throw from the Harbor Hotel. This new top end Hotel has a brasserie style roof top restaurant where you get a fantastic view from the sixth floor straight down the estuary. We ate their every night of our stay, so good and reasonably priced (be sure to make reservations in advance) ... the boats Great immaculately clean and well laid out. David was a fast responding owner picking up the keys from the 24hr marina office couldn't have been easier ... i can totally recommend her you will have a great stay ... forget Hotels have your own floating Family suite for a 1/4 of the price in Southampton's classiest location. Kind Regards, Simon
Myself, hubby and two friends just spent 2 nights on Ramosseas to celebrate seeing the New Year in. Ramosseas is absolutely stunning inside and out and I cannot fault anything about our stay at all. The location is perfect and the firework display over the marina when the clock struck 12.00 to see in the New Year was an added bonus for us along with the bubbly that David left for us. Ramosseas has everything you need, spotlessly clean, ample space and very comfy beds with lovely bedding. David is a superb host. Great communication from the booking process to checking with us when we were onboard to make sure everything was ok. The check in process with the Marina Staff was smooth and all very helpful. We had a magical time and we would all highly recommend Ramosseas to anyone wishing to do something a little different. Thank you David, amazing times, fun memories.
Fantastic stay on Ramosseas
We had a fantastic 2 night stay on Ramosseas with out 3 children. The yacht is spacious and 5 star. David the host was fantastic and was in contact before, during and after our stay. Would highly recommend.
5 nights on board Ramosseas. Exceptionally well kitted out and clean boat. Good amenities within the marina. Great host.
A Great stay on a lovely boat!
Stayed for a couple of nights midweek with friends, on David's lovely yacht. This was our fourth stay through Bedsonboard, and by far the best. David was an excellent host, and very friendly and helpful. The facilities onboard and for the Marina were very good and just as described. The Marina and surrounds are busy, but was never noisy. Our friends were staying on a boat for the first time, and I'm certain they are now converts. Once again a massive Thank You to David and Jo for all their help to make our short trip very memorable.
A Boat Experience
Absolutely loved our stay on Ramosseas, the boat was immaculate and presented to a high standard....had everything you needed on board and would highly recommend this if you want to do something a bit different!! David was amazing and left comprehensive instructions which assisted us in navigating around the boat. Cant wait to go again in the summer so we can enjoy more of this amazing boat and top deck!
