With its mild climate, diverse landscapes, and rich history, Lake Garda offers an unforgettable experience for anyone looking to rent a boat and explore its beauty from the water.  The lake's steady winds, known as "Ora" and "Pelér," create ideal conditions for sailing and make it a popular destination for regattas and sailing events. The sheltered waters and manageable currents ensure a pleasant and safe sailing experience, even for beginners.Sailing on the lake provides awe-inspiring views of the surrounding mountains and charming towns along the shoreline. You can discover hidden coves, secluded beaches, and ancient castles inaccessible by land. Sailing on Lake Garda also opens up a world of water activities, such as swimming, snorkelling, and even water sports like windsurfing and wakeboarding. Whether seeking relaxation or adventure, a Lake Garda boat rental allows you to tailor your experience according to your preferences.

How much does it cost to rent a boat on Lake Garda?

The cost of a yacht charter in Lake Garda can vary depending on the season and the ship you want. The season you embark, the type and size of the boat and the number of guests will impact the final cost. Including a skipper and crewed yacht will usually increase the cost of your boat hire. Take a look at some of our boat prices below:

Motorboat

Our prices for motorboat rentals begin at €2,320/day in the low and high seasons.

Gulet

Our prices for Gulet rentals begin at €1,300/day and €10,000/week in the low and high season.

What is included in the cost?

The cost of a Lake Garda yacht charter typically includes the rental fee for the boat itself. However, clarifying other inclusions and potential extra expenses with the boat owner is essential. Common inclusions are the boat's standard equipment, safety gear, and VAT. The initial rental cost may not include items such as fuel, skipper or crew, water sports equipment, and cleaning fees. Discuss these details with the boat owner to avoid surprises during your trip.

Which is the perfect boat type for me?

Choosing the perfect vessel for your boat rental in Lake Garda can be tricky, so we're here to help!
