Boat Hire - charter a craft from us before buying your own

Laser Hire

The cost of hire is £75 for 3 months. If boats are available, daily hire at £10 may be possible by special arrangement. Insurance and berthing is included.

Laser Pico, Topper and RS Feva Hire


Littleton Juniors have a fleet of Picos and Toppers for hire at only £75, and RS Feva at only £100 for a 3 month period (excluding scheduled use by the LSC Juniors group). This makes hire affordable to nearly everybody - club racing doesn't have to be expensive!

The Laser Pico is a beginners to improvers boat with a high boom and self draining cockpit. Built out of thermo plastic, buoyancy is built in and it has immense stiffness and exceptional impact strength. The LSC training sail is stowed wrapped around the mast and has a click on kicker. The rudder and dagger board are easy to lift. Sail area can be reduced by reefing.

The RS Feva is an improvers training boat for two light weight sailors - with main and jib sails. It can be fitted with an asymmetric spinnaker, in which configuration it becomes an excellent boat for Juniors performance sailing techniques. Minimum sailing ability equivalent to RYA Stage 2 is required for use of Fevas, and prior coaching in spinnaker sailing.

Special discounted 3 month rates, and daily rates are available for members of the Littleton Juniors group, for Optimists (£5), Topper (£10), Pico (£10) and RS Feva (£10). Hirers must ensure they know how to rig and correctly de-rig and pack away boats before hire.

For details of the scheme, and arrange hire please contact Nigel Maycock, (07989 744924).

RS Vision Hire

RS Vision
We have four RS Visions for hire to club members. The Vision is a two-person boat similar to the Laser 2000. It is a great introduction to asymmetric sailing for sailors of all levels, and is ideal for competitive racing or cruising with enough room for the whole family!

For more information about the boat have a look at the RS Vision website.

The hiring fee is £200 for a 4 month period. Alternatively you can buy five or ten separate days for £100 and £150 respectively. The days can be taken whenever you want within a year of purchase (subject to the boats not being needed for training). The fees include insurance and berthing.

The bookings diary for the three Visions is available here.

Please contact David Brassington, 01932 344103 for more details.

There is a maintenance / insurance charge of 50 for 3 months. Borrowers must hold a RYA Level 2 certificate or be of a similar standard. Insurance and berthing is included.

Comet Hire

Littleton has a Comet for hire to members. Smaller and less powerful than a Laser, it is ideal for less experienced sailors and those who find a Laser a bit of a handful. It is easy to handle on the water and being light it is easy to launch and recover.

It is insured for club racing as well as for cruising. The fee is 10 per day (5 for half a day), 50 for 3 months. Other periods can be arranged. Hirers must hold a RYA Level 2 certificate or be of a similar standard and must have a boat briefing (about 30 minutes), otherwise the hire arrangements are quite informal. A copy of the Comet Loan Agreement is on the Members' Area of the website.
