Rigid inflatable boats (RIB) are renowned for their stability, buoyancy, performance and safety. Thanks to its impressive floating abilities, you will always feel reassured onboard your RIB rental.
You can easily rent a RIB on Nautal thanks to our wide array of boats available and simplified booking process. You can filter your search according to your desires by choosing the size of the boat, its age, and the number of people on board. If you don't feel confident sailing alone, you can also choose to have a skipper on board to guide you throughout your trip.
You will also have the choice to add additional services, such as having water sports equipment on board.
The cost of your RIB rental depends on different factors, such as the brand of the boat, the duration of your charter, the season, and the destination. Additional services can also influence the price of your booking.
In popular summer destinations such as France and Spain, you can find prices starting at 120 euros for a day at sea and 600 euros for a week. Most visitors tend to charter RIBs for short durations, either half a day or a full day.
Cabin RIBs, where it is possible to sleep, can cost between 800 euros and 10,000 euros per week.
Many water sports can be practised with a RIB rental. You can go water skiing, kitesurfing, or even tubing. Also, a day out on the water on this boat will allow you to venture into small places, such as coves, where you can take out your snorkelling equipment and observe the underwater fauna and flora.
The RIBs are easy to navigate around the sea because of their size, allowing them to get into the smallest corners. If you opt for a bareboat RIB, you can navigate wherever you wish and embrace the maritime beauty. These boats are powerful, so you'll have much fun catching the waves.
As RIBs are high-powered boats, most countries worldwide (including major tourist destinations in Europe) require you to obtain an official license before being able to drive them. However, there are some exceptions.
In the United Kingdom, for example, you'll only need a license if you rent a RIB on the inland waters (rivers, canals, etc.). You will not need a license if you intend to charter a RIB in an estuary, in tidal water or directly on the sea.
RIB charters are ideal for outings with family, friends or even colleagues for team-building events. You can sail wherever you want, practice different water sports and even play games such as treasure hunts. It is the perfect boat for all your holiday activities!

Our advice: check the extras included in the offer and ask the owner for the approximate fuel costs for your journey, so you will avoid any surprises later.
