What type of boat is best for a Nice boat charter?

Before choosing the right vessel for your boat rental in Nice, you first have to think about the duration of your holiday.

With the speed of these vessels, you’ll be able to see everything on your wish list in no time.

Catamarans and yachts have the space and accommodations on board to ensure a comfortable stay on the water. For a more luxurious holiday, you might consider a gulet, and for an authentic sailing experience a sailboat.

If you’re unsure about whether or not a vessel suits your needs, feel free to contact the boat owners to get a better sense of what is included on board. With our large fleet, you’ll have no problem finding the perfect boat for your Nice boat charter!
