Based in Hamble-le-Rice, we operate worldwide

tastetheblue is based in Hamble-le-Rice, in Hampshire. Our South Coast UK location gives us the perfect position to work with racing yachts based anywhere on the Solent, or visiting us for regattas and events. We have experience of working with the Royal Ocean Racing Club (RORC), Junior Offshore Group (JOG), yacht clubs including the Royal Southern, and many more contractors and organisations. Most of our racing yachts and regularly serviced vessels are based on or near the Hamble River.

As regular participants in major regattas, and with contracts taking us all over Europe, our larger (usually 60'+) yachts are often based in the Mediterranean. We have contacts in Palma de Mallorca in the Balearics, Barcelona and Badalona in Spain, Port Napoleon in France, and many more. Whilst we are based in the UK, we are happy to travel, and can offer much of our service remotely.

Many of our vessels regularly travel further afield, and participate in events such as the Atlantic Rally for Cruisers, RORC transatlantic race, Caribbean 600 and Antigua week. We can support vessels worldwide, with Caribbean contacts in St Lucia and Antigua, and a handy network of Captains and Crew Agents elsewhere.

Wherever your vessel is we can help. Aiming to bridge the gap between privately operated small yachts, and fully professional race teams/managed super yachts, we will seek to provide value for money and minimise travel where possible.


We are based in Hamble-le-Rice, on the South coast of the UK. Race yachts are usually UK and Mediterranean based, and larger leisure and charter yachts are supported worldwide.


We aim to fill the gap between self-managed leisure boats, and fully professional race teams/superyachts. By focussing on the 28' - 120' sector, we offer a trust & honesty based approach.
