What is included in the cost?

The cost of a Sardinia boat rental varies depending on several factors, but it typically includes the bare essentials such as the boat, insurance, and basic safety equipment. However, additional services and equipment can be added at an extra cost. The fuel cost is usually not included in the rental price and needs to be covered by the renter. You can hire a boat in Sardinia with or without a skipper, depending on your preference. If you opt for a skippered charter, the skipper's fee is typically included in the rental cost.

Hiring a crew may be an option for larger vessels. The crew's fee, if applicable, would be an additional expense. Some yacht hires in Sardinia include water sports equipment like snorkelling gear or paddleboards. However, it's important to check with the rental provider if these are included or available as optional extras. Discussing the specific inclusions and amenities with the boat owner is crucial to understand what is covered in the rental price.

Are you renting a boat with or without a skipper?

With a Sardinia boat hire, you can choose between renting with or without a skipper. A skipper brings valuable knowledge about the local waters, ensuring a safe and smooth sailing experience. They know the best routes, hidden spots, and weather conditions. Skippers often have extensive knowledge about the area and can provide valuable insights into Sardinia's best beaches, restaurants, and attractions. They can guide you to lesser-known gems and help you maximise your time on the island. The skipper takes care of the navigation, mooring, and other technical aspects, allowing you to focus solely on enjoying the beauty of Sardinia.

If you choose to rent without a skipper, having adequate boating experience and possessing the licenses or certifications required by the boat owner and local authorities is important. You should be comfortable navigating and operating the chosen boat, including handling anchoring, mooring, and basic maintenance. Renting without a skipper is generally recommended for those who have prior knowledge of the waters around Sardinia or have experience in similar sailing environments.

What season is best for a boat hire in Sardinia?

Sardinia offers a pleasant boating experience throughout the year, but the best time to rent a boat depends on your preferences, weather conditions, and desired activity level. This period is the peak of summer, with warm temperatures, clear skies, and lively beach towns. The high season is perfect for sunseekers who enjoy vibrant atmospheres, water sports, and a buzzing social scene. However, it's also the busiest time and popular destinations may be crowded. The shoulder seasons are characterised by milder temperatures, fewer crowds, and more affordable prices. During these months, you can still enjoy pleasant weather and warm temperatures suitable for swimming and exploring. The shoulder season is ideal for those seeking a balance between tranquillity and favourable conditions.
