In France, you will find many types of boats: sailboats, catamarans, motorboats, semi-rigid boats, houseboats and luxury yachts.

Many regions share a passion for water sports: Brittany and Normandy, land of great sailors, the South of France known for its catamarans and beautiful yachts or Occitanie and its houseboats sailing down the Canal du Midi. Chartering a yacht in France is a great adventure, for a day or a week cruise.

Where to sail in France?

Discover the French landscapes by boat:

Paris

When speaking about France we cannot miss on mentioning Paris. The most famous, and one of the most beautiful cities in France, is also a possible destination for yacht charter. Are you in the mood for a romantic cruise on The Seine? If you thought visiting the Eiffel Tower was impressive, wait until you see it from a boat !

Brittany

In Brittany, a region where boating is a common passion, discover the Emerald Coast, Bréhat and Ouessant for the North and Quiberon, Belle-Île and Bénodet towards the South. Also consider sailing around the nautical cities of Saint-Malo, Quimper, Lorient, Brest, Concarneau and Vannes. And don't forget to navigate through the Glénans archipelago if the opportunity arises!

French Riviera

On the French Riviera (or Cote d’Azur), you will be able to rent motorboats for day trips as well as sailboats and catamarans of all sizes for your cruises under the Mediterranean Sea from Marseille, Cannes, La Ciotat, etc... Other sailing routes? Set sail to the stunning islands by Hyères, discover the Calanques national park, or even cruise around Billionaires' Bay.

Corsica

On the Isle of Beauty, the change of scenery is unreal. One cannot get tired of sailing to Bonifacio, diving in the Lavezzi archipelago or going to the beautiful Sanguinaires islands. This island encompassing the drastic landscapes of the sea and mountains attracts boaters year after year, from the newcomers to the biggest lover of Corsica.

When to sail in France?

The best time to sail in France is between April and October. If possible, avoid sailing during the months of July and August when tourist crowds are at their highest.The water temperature varies according to the region. In Brittany, it is around 20°C max while in the Mediterranean, the water is generally warmer and closer to 25°C.

There are no more reasons not to set sail! With Click&Boat, the leading boat rental service, you can book a yacht charter with an experienced skipper in France. Whether you are planning to set sail from Brittany or Corsica, a local expert in your midst will show you the little-known and most beautiful places that you might have not otherwise visited.

You will be able to become a competent crew member and take advantage of learning how to handle a boat and become a true sailor if you wish! At the same time, if you wish to relax, that’s not a problem too. Let your skipper and/or crew take care of everything from navigating, anchoring and docking.

Which boat to rent in France?

Finding the ideal boat for your cruise is not always easy. Let us give you some tips on how to find the right type of boat according to your needs & desires.

Motorboat 

For day rentals, the motorboat is your go-to boat. Contrary to other sailboats and catamarans, chartering a motorboat in France will give you access to many nautical leisure activities such as wakeboarding, tubing, etc. In addition, navigating by motorboat or RIB makes it easier to visit small magical creeks.

Sailboat

Ideal for sailing in all weathers, the sailboat is a sure value for a long cruise. The sailboat is the boat of choice for travelers seeking exploration. A sailboat charter is recommended for cruising along the French Riviera to Corsica or to enjoy the Breton coasts.

Catamaran

For a relaxing cruise with family or friends, we recommend the catamaran. A catamaran rental in France is ideal for typically accommodating a group of up to 12 people on board. For a relaxing cruise along the Mediterranean Sea, it is the most suitable boat as it will allow you to access unique and less accessible landscapes from the land.

Yacht

Yacht charter in France is a five-star option to enjoy maximum comfort on board during your cruise on the "French Riviera".

Houseboat

Finally, for a river cruise, houseboats prove to be the best choice. Embarking up to 12 people and acting as a floating hotel, the houseboat rental is perfect for slowlife enthusiasts and very quiet navigation. Embark on a houseboat trip even if you don’t have a boat license, as there is a wide choice of yacht charters without a license on Click&Boat. Renting a houseboat is the best way to discover the Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Sète.

Delicious French cuisine for you to try

Dock your yacht charter in France and enter a world of delectable dishes. Your tastebuds will thank you as you journey through this marvellous country! Here is a list of some unmissable specialities for you to try:

  •  Take your boat rental to Nice, France and try the delicious salade niçoise. A fresh mix of tomatoes, tuna, hard-boiled eggs, local olives and anchovies and topped with vinaigrette, this salad has a unique Mediterranean flavour. After tasting this, there will be no doubt in your mind why the salad has become so popular all over the world.
  • As you journey further along the southern coast in your French boat rental, you will arrive in Provence, where you will be able to try the Soupe au Pistou. Reminiscent of Italian pesto, the Provençal pistou is added to soup made with white beans, green beans and tomatoes.
  • You can also travel further north on your yacht rental in France. At the country’s north-western edge you will find the region of Brittany. Whilst you are here, it would be a shame to miss out on their traditional crêpes. In fact, the Breton galette – a buckwheat crêpe filled with cheese and ham, and stuffed with a sunny-side up egg is famous throughout the region.
