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.
