The choices are endless for you to find the perfect hired boat for just a few hours as a day charter, a couple days as a time charter, or a charter for weeks on the water in order to experience the special feeling of livng on a boat. Hire a yacht for a party or event, host some networking opportunities, sail for sport without any limits, have a relaxing holiday, or have a completely private experience – the choice is yours.

Business people or successful young entrepreneurs may prefer to travel at higher speeds and therefore to charter one of many motorboats available for a fun daytrip or to experience the luxury of a mega yacht with a skipper, crew and all the extras for an unforgettable week or two at sea.

A regatta sailor might want to hire a catamaran and experience sailing with friends for the first time, working the sails and dinghy a bit like in the America’s Cup, with hard wind blowing and testing out a higher Beaufort scale.
A friend of nature may want a more relaxing holiday, in which case chartering a houseboat with a partner vacation season could be the way to go. With calmer waters, this sort of holiday is also perfect for an entire family including small children. This is a popular online rental because houseboats often require no boating license for the driver. As of a few years ago, houseboat charters throughout Europe have been largely allowed without a boat license, which has made sailing holidays with children even more popular.
For the sailing enthusiast who has all different types of sailing licenses, booking a sailboat on a Riviera will test your abilities and challenge you to sail your hardest.
If you don’t find the right boat in our search and booking engine for immediate hire for your sailing cruise, wedding at sea, or other event on the water, you can easily book by emailing Yachtico.com or by calling the 24-hour support line. You wouldn’t believe what all we can accomplish. Just contact us with your special requests! We have experts worldwide who have enough experience to make your wishes for your holiday be realized.
