I could not make a better choice for celebrating my birthday. Nuno was simply the BEST host one could ask. He is so wise and knowledgeable, explaining every little detail of Lisbon, its habits, its monuments and its history. Additionally he was so friendly with us, received us as if we were family. I am very happy he was part of my special day with my family and I'll certainly contact him again every time I want to sail around this beautiful city.


Alessandro had been a very kind and respectful crew member, with good understanding of the elementary aspects of sailing and mooring in 2 different harbours, with varied levels of difficulty. Eager also learning new skills and easily adapting to not foreseen events. He brought his wife and 2 young children who could enjoy being part of the crew for 3 days and having a joyful time all together on board and in the different harbours. Thanks a lot all for being so cooperative in getting the boat ready for sailing the first day and having gone through unexpected moments with a great exposure of good seamanship. Thanks a lot Saskia, Alessandro and their wonderful kids.


We spent a wonderful day on the boat. Sinan was very friendly, helpful and straightforward. The boat was just perfect for our day trip. I will be very happy to rent the boat again.


Celia and her friends celebrated the bachelorette party. congratulations to the super girlfriend. Very polite, friendly and respectful. I'm sure they had a great time. And if they decide to repeat, it will be a pleasure to have them with us again.


9 onboard Anita for a week of fabulous island discovery. Boat was very easy to handle - just a main sheet, outhaul, bow thruster and furling jib - no main sheet traveller, spinnaker/genaker etc., but great for teaching the kids that hadn’t yacht-sailed before the basics. Boat had a few small defects (one hinge on fridge was broken and the shower drain-pump switch didn’t operate). Fridge was no real problem and the team at base helped solve the shower problem quickly(via WhatsApp) with the manual pump switch. On arrival back in the base, the diver found a piece of fishing line on the propeller….hadn’t impacted the motoring performance - charged me €75 to have it removed - no way to really verify. Boat was VERY economical ~ a week with light winds meant more motoring than we’d have liked, but used only 45ltrs. 9 on a boat this size was never going to be anything but ‘cozy’, but it worked very well. The Wi-Fi was a bit patchy in places and needed a restart at base to get it working, but no-one really inconvenienced ~ plenty of 4G in the area. The ‘Charter’ worked ok for the check-in and was able to order provisions for arrival, transfers, SUPs etc., which all worked really well. The shore-crew were very competent ~ knew everything about the boats, but would have liked more of their time to be sure of waste-tank processes (again, a quick WhatsApp conversation answered the questions). Overall, a great week and the boat met expectations 😊 Peter


Wonderful people! Very kind, understandable and responsible!! Thank you! We appreciate it!! Highly recommended for any other boat owner. They will always be welcome!!!

Easy and secure yacht charter

Renting a boat is definitely an experience that you won’t forget in a hurry. Observe unique and breathtaking views from your charter boat, take in nature and absorb those summer rays in complete tranquility, away from the hustle and bustle of crowded places. A boat rental allows you to explore secret locations that can't be reached by land where you can sunbathe and swim in the open sea with family or friends.

How can I rent a boat?

Renting a boat couldn’t be easier. First of all, you need to decide on the type of boat you’d like to charter; you can choose between sailboats, catamarans, inflatables, yachts, motorboats, and unlicensed boats. Next, select which characteristics related to the boat are important to you and the type of trip that would suit your crew best. For instance, you can choose whether or not you need a skipper, any additional services, what your budget is, the number of passengers, whether you’d prefer a daily or weekly charter and much more. Once you’ve filtered the results according to your needs and chosen your dream destination, you can then request a free quote and contact the owner for more information should you wish to. If you don’t have a license, then not to worry! There are a number of destinations where you can rent a smaller unlicensed boat starting from 150 dollars per day.

What can I do when I rent a boat?

Renting a boat guarantees a unique experience you certainly won't forget! Whether you prefer to relax or embark on an adventure away from the tourist flow, a boat rental has something for everyone. Let yourself be moved by the waves, explore different islands and let the wind carry you along the water. Life is easier aboard a boat...simply choose your destination, search for the most hidden spots and swim in magical coves, all whilst admiring your surroundings from a unique perspective. Why not book a day trip or enjoy a few weeks away? You no longer have to imagine diving into those crystal clear waters you’ve been dreaming of… make it a reality!

Who can I rent a boat with?

With a boat rental, you can sunbathe and enjoy a relaxing holiday, party with friends, or simply spend the day with your family and admire all that the surrounding landscapes have to offer. Another great idea is to enjoy your holiday onboard a boat with your partner. You’ll be sure to have a romantic and unforgettable experience at sea, perfect for sharing with a loved one!
