She’s perfectly placed for all of Southampton City Centre’s facilities and attractions and her cockpit is a great place to watch the ocean liners, ferries and leisure boats whilst enjoying a glass of something cold. The marina facilities are amongst the very best and there’s even free parking for guests”

    Nautical Dreams

    July 29, 2017

    A beautifully presented alternative to a hotel and lots of nice touches - biscuits and best quality coffee! The whole experience was faultless and the owners are to be congratulated on their presentation.

    Sets the GOLD standard

    May 22, 2017

    Fabulous boat, excellent marina, great location and superb host together set the GOLD standard. Our first hire certainly won't be our last.


    Would stay again

    June 18, 2017

    Lovely boat, nice people, perfect choice. Will look for an opportunity to stay again.

    Great stay!

    June 25, 2017

    We loved your boat, the children pretended to be pirates and my daughter slept particularly well. Southampton has a great deal to offer, and we loved having breakfast on the deck. Many thanks

    Real quality exoerience

    June 4, 2017

    Stayed on the yacht for a night with wife and daughter when visiting the later. The vessel is emasculate, everything it is says to be and more, quality fixtures and linen, and the marina facilities are amazing. The gusts were so helpful, totally recommend it and would return

    Fantastic Weekend in Southampton

    June 5, 2017

    It was great to meet Alison, who was kindly waiting when we arrived. We were shown to the boat and facilities which were all really good. The position of the marina was perfect for town and also to watch the departing cruise ships which set sail around 5pm. The boat was very comfortable and well equipped and we would highly recommend a stay here.

    Wonderful experience

    May 29, 2017

    Great stay aboard Nautical Dreams last night. The boat was beautiful and Mark and Alison were fantastic in the lead up, their quick responses and advice allowed me to keep the whole thing a surprise for my wife (which was a resounding success!). A different and thoroughly enjoyable stay, we highly recommend and would love to return when next in town. Many thanks both.

    An ideal place to stay for an overnight business trip.

    June 17, 2017

    Great value, very welcoming and perfectly positioned. Parking included was a bonus as was the brand new toilet / shower block. This lovely yacht was clean tidy and comfortable and nothing was to much trouble for our hosts who were very accommodating.

    Night away

    June 14, 2017

    Fantastic experience, just wished it was longer! Both Mark and Alison were extremely helpful from the start to finish.


    Stay aboard Bavaria 42 for Southampton Boat show

    Sept. 29, 2017

    Four of us stayed aboard this Bavaria 42 for the Southampton boat show. The marina could not have been any closer for the show, within 5 minutes walking distance. Locally there are any number of restaurants and bars as well as several shops for stocking the boat up. The boat itself was immaculate inside with all three cabins made up as doubles with towels for all guests. Mark kindly showed us around the boat and how to operate the heating, lights etc before leaving us to it. A total gentleman. Faultless stay! Thanks!

    Really well presented vessel with a lovely roomy feel. The owners are very helpful and the onshore facilities are 1st class. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Excellent Host and boat

    Sept. 19, 2017

    Greeted by the host after a very easy booking process and shown round the great facilities both on board and the excellent marina. The boat was clean and presented extremely well with lots of restaurants locally it made a great weekend stay. Cannot fault the boat, host or marina everything was spot on and we will hope to return soon. Thanks again!

    Amazing experience from start to finish

    Sept. 3, 2017

    We go on a cruise from Southampton every year, and normally stay in budget hotels (not mentions the T word) the night before. This year we decided to do something a little different and booked onto Nautical Dreams instead. The price was less than budget hotels nearby were charging (there were 5 of us going) and the whole experience was excellent from start to finish. We found an interesting yacht, and contacted the owner to ask a question and had a response back almost immediately. After a couple of further queries had been answered with the same promptness, we placed the booking. We had a follow up couple of exchanges to arrange for the inital meet up on the day, where we met the owners who explained everything we needed to know and were great, really friendly and helpful. So we spent the afternoon and evening on deck basking in the sunshine and enjoying the relatively calm atmosphere while my wife got a jumpstart on getting her sea legs a day earlier than she usually does. The yacht was well kept, comfortable and felt very much like part of the holiday rather than a place to sleep. The marina is well appointed and the main town centre and shops are a short walk away. We will definitely repeat, the whole thing was such a better experience than the usual hotels and we will be looking through beds on board before booking anyway in future.

    Boat Show Visit

    Sept. 20, 2017

    We used the yacht as a base to visit the show. The layout of her was ideal for 4 adults with plenty of space to spread inboard & in the cockpit. Excellent location being less than 5 mins walk from the show & also for plenty of restaurants in the evening. The marina facilities seem to have been upgraded recently to a high standard.


    Oct. 15, 2017

    Wonderful! Just wonderful! Faultless! Owners kind and accommodating, made us feel at ease and provided us with fresh coffee for the morning which was a wonderful extra. Beds were sublimely comfortable- I'll be dreaming about them forevermore. Children want to return already. Beautiful atmosphere and boat has all you need in a nice spot with amazing shower and bathroom facilities close by. I am so so happy that we did this. Our weekend was just perfect.

    Great experience......

    Aug. 8, 2017

    A great alternative to a hotel...... Better by far, what could be a better way to wake up on a beautiful day than on a yacht and sit outside enjoy breakfast, drinks, fresh air. A beautiful yacht in excellent condition. Well equipped, comfortable, warm, great experience for the kid. Mark and Alison were great and happy to support with anything at all..... even when the better half couldn't get the stove working. A great experience, would strongly recommend it. Choose your yachts carefully....42ft and two bathrooms makes all the difference for six people.


    Superb boat

    April 2, 2018

    An excellent 2 night stay onboard, the owner Alison couldn’t do enough for you. The Marina facilities where also to high standard and I would highly recommend this boat.
