What's better than spending your summer holidays on the water ... To prepare your stay, SamBoat reveals its 10 favorite boats. It's time to jump into the water and test private boat rentals! To learn about these offers, read this!
How much does the rental cost?
Prices vary from single to triple, depending on the type of boat: motor, monohull sailboat or catamaran. Through Filovent, Vents de Mer or The Moorings, a week in high season for 2 couples plus their skipper (who must have his cabin) costs, on average, from 1 300 to 3 000 € for a monohull of 11 m. For a catamaran, the range is rather from 3,500 to 4,000 €. As for the motor boat, it comes back, at least 4 000 € for 3 cabins. But beware of the fuel bill. Whatever the type of boat, the amount of rent varies depending on the place of departure and the age of the boat.
At the rental price are added options ... mandatory
Plan in your budget, the price of cleaning at the end of the holiday and the rental of sheets and towels. And of course, the salary of the skipper, with great disparities depending on the location. You are also required to feed or pay the skipper for his meals. Finally, you will have to pay a security deposit, which will be cashed only if you damage the boat or the equipment at your disposal.
Ready to cast off!
To return tanned rather than angry, we must define the course of the crossing. Indeed, excluding luxury yachts, life aboard is not at the level of a 5-star hotel: cabins of different sizes on a monohull, no dishwasher, television often optional ...
So, your holiday plans will allow you to better understand the benefits of renting boats between private individuals and take this opportunity to relax at sea.
