Guided by the winds and the waters, a sailing boat rental is a great way to explore different destinations in a new way. Sailing boats are equally as perfect for a relaxing getaway as they are for a thrilling adventure through the waves. Depending on when and where you go, the versatile boat will satisfy your holiday wishes!
If you would like to rent your sailing boat for a day, the price can differ depending on many factors such as the destination, the size of the vessel, and the seasonality. For example, a sailing boat charter for six people in Cinque Terre during the low season is around €200 per day. However, a rental in Split for 12 people during the high season can be around €800 per day. The same is true if you want a sailing boat rental for a week. For instance, a sailing boat in Nice for 12 people during the high season can cost around €7,000 / week and a sailing boat of the same size in Valencia during the low season can cost around €2,800 / week. Your rental will also increase in price if you choose to add any extra amenities such as water toys and cooking services.
In order to legally charter your sailing boat, you may require a boat license depending on the destination. For instance, you do not require a license to rent a sailing boat in Spain if the boat is less than six metres in length. It is also important to note that a license may be required according to the boat owner’s wishes, regardless of the legislation. Therefore, you should always confirm with them before setting sail.
If you don’t have the necessary boat license then you can always opt for renting a sailing boat with a skipper. A professional sailor will guide you through your holiday, leaving you with an unforgettable experience!
The best destination for your sailing boat charter is dependent on your preferences! If you are looking to rent during the summer, then our most popular destinations include Mediterranean countries such as Croatia, Spain, and Italy. The best part about a sailing holiday is that you can go from place to place, exploring different cultures and beaches! If you have the time, you can go from Barcelona to Ibiza or Crete to Corfu! The options are truly endless on a sailing boat. Similarly, you can head to the Caribbean or Mexico if you want to experience warm weather during the winter months. For instance, you can begin a journey in Cabo San Lucas, Florida, or The Bahamas and then island hop around the beautiful beaches!
Alternatively, if you want to experience Autumn and Spring from a new perspective, a sailing boat rental around our European destinations is a great way to do so!

When renting a sailing boat, there are certain factors that you should consider. Firstly, you should take into account the size of your party, so as to rent a sailing boat that fits everyone comfortably. Secondly, you need to confirm the boat is available on your specific dates and at the destination that you want to sail to. Finally, you should consider whether or not to charter a skipper and/or crew. If you do, then ensure you rent a large enough sailing boat and are prepared to pay the extra cost.
Typically, the price shown on Nautal is a base price for the given rental period. However, there are additional costs that may be included such as a final cleaning, bedding, towels, and mooring fees. At the end of the day, any additional expenses will be approved by the boat owner so each sailing boat rental will detail different costs. For example, some owners may include the cost of mooring and skippers in their prices, while other boat owners may want to charge extra for this. Similarly, additions of extra cleaning, early boarding, or water sports equipment typically come with an extra price. This being said, nothing is for certain. Therefore, if you would like to understand the full cost breakdown of your sailing boat rental, then you should confirm it with your specific boat owner.
