When it comes to the French Riviera, exploring the Mediterranean coastline by boat is an absolute must. Renting a boat might seem a little overwhelming at first. You’ll quickly find you’re spoiled for choice. Small boats, motorboats, sailboats, and larger yachts are all available on the French Riviera. Each boat provides a different way to experience France’s sparkling southern coast. If you want to experience Cannes like a celebrity, consider renting a catamaran for €600/day. You’ll sail the Mediterranean coast at the hands of a private skipper. If a catamaran isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps a luxury boat would suit your needs. Luxury boats are roughly €900/day and include a skipper. If you really want to blend in with the locals, rent a yacht! If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, consider renting a sailboat. Sailboat rentals range from €200/day up to €600/day and include a flexible cancellation policy. Note that a skipper is mandatory for a sailboat. This means all you have to do is step on board, sit back, and enjoy the views. Rental prices vary depending on the size of the boat, the season, and the rental location. We’re here to advise you on the very best boat rentals and can point you in the direction of a rental to suit your needs.
