About Day Boat Charters

Everyone dreams of a day spent on a yacht, cruising to secluded beaches, dining at seaside restaurants and trying out all the latest water toys, you are sure to have a day like no other! If you enjoy being on a boat but don't intend to spend your entire holiday on the water, a day charter can be a great option, and will surely be the most memorable day of your holiday. Or perhaps if you're a yachting novice, you could try renting a yacht for a day to dip your feet in the water before planning a whole week at sea! 

Experience the glamorous coastline of the Côte d'Azur, cruising for a beach lunch at Club 55 in St Tropez and arriving back just in time to watch the spectacular Fireworks in Cannes during your French Riviera Yacht Charter. Step back in time and visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii and fall in love along the spectacular Amalfi Coast or find your very own piece of heaven on one of the many Greek islands.

You must try the toys!

Prepare yourself for a day of fun in the sunshine. Start the morning with a light breakfast, head to a secluded bay for a swim and suntan, maybe try out the toys, then drop anchor and head ashore to one of many highly-recommended beach restaurants. An ideal chance to steady your sea legs if you’re not used to it!

Greece, and especially the Cyclades Islands boast popular destinations such as Mykonos. It is common to take out daily boat rentals in Greece as well as a villa to enable you to spend your days exploring the hundreds of islands nearby. You can also charter boat with a skipper from Athens, which has a major international airport.

Here's what some of our happy customers had to say after their Day Charters:

It was AWESOME!!! Very professional, tons of fun. Great boat and crew. I would do it all over again, it was a fantastic family memory. Thanks for your help in putting it together.

A customer who rented a day catamaran in Tortola for a large family outing.

I just want to thank you for all your hard work in setting up my wife and I on one hell of a day. The boat was fantastic, the weather and scenery were beautiful. You really made it a special day by going that extra mile in securing a reasonably priced boat for my wife and I to take out and enjoy ourselves. I will definitely be using your services again when my friends and I head off to the Caribbean next year and will be in direct contact with you since you were such a pleasure to work with.

Boatbookings makes Day Charters Easy!

The joy of a day boat rental

Our dedicated team of brokers take care of everything for you: from finding the right boat and skipper, confirming availability, providing maps to the boat and suggesting interesting things to do in the area. But we also understand that you may have some worries associated with hiring a boat. Recognising this, we insist on the following from our day boat charters:

  • They are all insured by the owner
  • They all conform to strict marine regulations of their respective countries
  • Skippers speak English (if you have different requirements, please let us know)
  • Generally speaking, if the weather is inclement, we will attempt to move the date so that you can still do the charter
  • We will give you the best price, without "middleman" markups! Going direct will not give you a better price, and in many cases you will get a worse price.

Our team of brokers have walked the docks in ports around the world to find you quality boats, from reliable owners, that will give you great value for your money. We'd like to suggest the right boat for you - simply click on one of the buttons below to see the boats or have us suggest one for you, or continue to read on to learn more about day charters!

The Benefits of Chartering with a Skipper

Skippers can provide a wealth of information about the area, get you into interesting restaurants or secluded bays, and generally make your day safer and more enjoyable. And for about €150 to €200 per day, they are a bargain! Don't forget to tip the skipper (generally 5-10% of the charter price), and buy him lunch along the way!
