What type of boat is best for a yacht charter in Newcastle?

Want to rent a boat in Newcastle but unsure of which one to choose? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. If you want a shorter holiday, consider a motorboat hire. Motorboats are good options for a quick getaway because they are usually hired by the day and they can go fast, helping you see everything in no time. For longer holidays of more than a week, we recommend a more spacious and comfortable vessel, such as a catamaran which can accommodate all of your needs as well as those of family or friends. If you’re travelling to a river or a lake, a houseboat is sufficient and they usually have heat on board in case you’re sailing in the off-season. Whichever vessel you choose, you can never go wrong with a yacht charter in Newcastle!
