Yacht Charter in Dubai- A Middle Eastern Oasis of luxury

You will never be bored if you rent a boat in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. For starters, this is a city that holds the record for the tallest building in the world, courtesy of the graceful Burj Khalifa skyscraper. And yes, this is a place where the famous fairy tales about the Middle East have a ring of truth. Its proximity to the Persian Gulf characterises the city, which lends itself to an unforgettable sailing experience in a region of unparalleled natural beauty.

Sure, a yacht charter in Dubai might not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of this famous city where luxury is the norm and people come from all over the world to go shopping and experience extravagance. But with a yacht charter in Dubai you can sail to the Gulf of Oman, Bahrain or Muscat in Oman and explore the Middle East’s tranquil waters and otherworldly landscapes. The Indian Ocean connects Dubai with Iran in the north, Qatar and Bahrain in the west and the Sultanate of Oman in the east.

What type of boat is best for Dubai?

The type of yacht you choose will largely depend on the sort of holiday that you’re looking to have. If you want to experience the overabundance that has put Dubai on the map, you should opt for a spacious and comfortable vessel such as a yacht or a catamaran. These yachts come fully equipped with all the services and comforts you’ll need to accommodate everyone on board. If you only want to sail for a few days, we’d recommend a daily rental, since you won’t need to sleep on board. We choose three different types of boats, the best ones to rent in Dubai. Here's a summary of their capacities and cabins:

Motor Yachts:

  • Capacity: 10-100+ passengers

Catamarans:

  • Capacity: 10–50 passengers
  • Cabins: 2–5 cabins on average

Motorboats:

  • Capacity: 5–20 passengers
  • Cabins: 1–3 cabins

These are general ranges; specifics may vary by boat model.
