For a unique and customised holiday experience on your own terms, choose a yacht rental with Nautal. You might think that a yacht rental is an overly luxurious expense for a holiday, but it's actually a great option for having an all-inclusive getaway where transport and accommodation are already taken care of!
A yacht rental can be whatever you want it to be. If you’re looking for a family-friendly holiday on a budget, you can use your yacht rental to traverse the open waters, go fishing and catch dinner or travel to non-touristy beaches where you can relax without hassle and high prices. If you want a more lavish holiday you can opt for a private yacht charter which includes a skipper and crew on board, and a private chef to cook all of your meals. Some yachts also include other amenities such as watersports equipment like snorkelling gear, paddleboards and dive scooters!
Whether you’re looking to rent a yacht for a celebration, a relaxing retreat or a team building with colleagues, Nautal has got a variety of options to find the exact boat to suit your needs!
Our website makes chartering a yacht easy! If you want to rent a yacht simply go onto our homepage, put in your travel dates and desired destination and choose the “yacht” filter under the category “Type of boat”. If you have a clear vision for your yacht rental, you can also filter for other features such as the number of passengers on board, length and the option for a charter with or without a skipper.
With a yacht rental, you can see so much more of the world, a lot of which is only accessible on the water. You can visit destinations both on land and sea, interact with marine life and swim in paradise. Visit top locations like Miami or Cancun and go snorkelling or scuba diving in the sparkling, turquoise water. Explore hidden coves, go beach hopping by boat and see sea creatures swim alongside your yacht rental. There’s so much to see and do and with a yacht rental, you’ll be able to unearth an aquatic world that you can’t experience on foot!
A yacht rental is a great option for a holiday with family or friends and Nautal offers a variety of yacht charters that can accommodate groups between 6 and 13 people. It’s important to remember that if you are renting a skippered yacht, the captain and crew count as passengers in the number of total people on board. Therefore, it’s always advised to check with the boat owner to confirm how many passengers are permitted to be on board in addition to crew members.
Nautal offers a large fleet of yacht rentals all over the world, with plenty of available options to find your perfect yacht. For luxury yachts, we recommend renting in Europe, as there are more luxury yacht rental options. One of the most popular European countries for a sailing holiday is Spain with top destinations like Barcelona and Marbella or the Balearic Islands like Ibiza, Menorca and Mallorca. Other popular places in Europe include the Amalfi Coast of Italy, the islands in Greece like Mykonos, coastal cities in Croatia like Dubrovnik and the French Riviera which includes Cannes and Nice. For warm weather year-round, rent a yacht in the Caribbean with top destinations like the British Virgin Islands and the Bahamas.
Nautal’s yacht fleet includes a range of different models and brands for charter, all chosen for quality and high spec conditions that make them unique and attractive to renters. Although there are many trusted yacht brands, the three best known are Jeanneau, Beneteau and Bavaria. Other brands include Silverton, Pershing, Baglietto and Mangusta.
Yacht rental prices vary depending on a number of factors such as the size and length of the vessel you choose, the number of people sailing and the time of year you choose to rent. Other things that affect the price are the amenities that are included on board and whether you’re renting a luxury yacht. In the low season, yacht rentals can range anywhere from €1,600 per day to over €10,000 per week. In the high season, prices will rise and typically be between €1,900 per day to over €13,000 per week.
Of course, the more extravagant the yacht, the higher the price! Keep in mind that prices will also differ depending on where you choose to rent. For example, a yacht rental in the Florida Keys for 6 people costs about €3,500 per week whereas the average price for a yacht rental in Florida for 6 people costs about €27,436 per week which could vary considerably by region. Each charter experience is different, so it’s always best to speak to the owner of the yacht rental to inquire about prices and to clear up any doubts.
Depending on the destination, the prices listed for a yacht rental do not include taxes which when added, can cause the price to rise significantly, especially if more than one country is visited. Many owners also require a deposit to be paid upon arrival as well as the fuel tank of the boat to be completely full when returning the yacht. Therefore you’ll need to take fuel costs into consideration, especially for extended charters where you’ll have to refuel multiple times. Finally, it is good practice to tip crew members approximately 10% if you’re chartering in Europe and 15% if you’re chartering in the United States, so it’s good to try to include this into your budget!
All countries have different nautical laws and in most countries, a nautical license is required to sail a yacht. If you’re unsure whether or not your destination requires a license, always check with the boat owner about any necessary requirements before renting a yacht. However, if you don’t have a license, you can still sail! In fact, most of the yachts on the Nautal platform include a required skipper and crew on board to ensure that no damage gets done to the vessel, as yachts are usually very expensive.
