Defiance is an Aquastar 33 motorboat that is available for charter from Brighton Marina. The most common reason to charter a boat is to partake in leisure activities such as diving or fishing or simply a sightseeing trip along the coast of Brighton, or the Seven Sisters Country Park.
When chartered for diving, the Sussex coast features chalk cliffs and gulleys underwater. This environment is extremely rare in Europe and is of particular interest to those studying the unique marine biodiversity. Take a look at the Marine Life page for information.
In addition to the chalk outcrops the area is famed for shipwrecks, the majority of which date from the two world wars when the U-boats hunted continuously, in a hope to starve Britain of the essential supplies needed.
Along with wrecks come big fish for those keen on angling. Experienced anglers charter boats for the Cod, Bass and Pollack which are found out on the wrecks. Others prefer catching plaice on the inner ledges.
For a fun day Mackerel is also a favourite catch for those not very experienced in fishing. A short charter trip should yield rewards, even for those just wanting to have a go. Mackerel fishing is a great way to fill in an afternoon on a stag or hen party, before taking to Brighton for a night out.
Instead of fishing a leisurely cruise along the front may be preferred. An hours charter will take you along the front of Brighton and back. Four hours could take you up to the Beachy Head viewing the beautiful South Downs.
