Portugal otherwise known as the Iberian Pearl is a nation rich with culture, history and natural beauty. Its cities are decorated with medieval walls, museums, palaces and castles, each with its own story to tell. This small country also owns a great coastline, 943km (not counting the 667km of the Azores and 250km of Madeira), with some of the most beautiful beaches and islands in the world!

Sailors will find exactly what they are looking for in Portugal; from the cold, windy waters of the Northern beaches, to the warm, crystal clear waters and cliffs of the Algarve, there’s so much to see.

Although Portugal is a small country, there are so many beautiful places to visit, and it can be hard to know where to start. Here are some of our favourite places for a boat hire in Portugal.
You can sail a yacht charter in Portugal year-round but for the warmest weather, the summer months are the most popular. However, beware that the summer months are a high tourist season in Portugal which means that it will be crowded, and the prices of boats will be their most expensive. For lower prices, fewer crowds and good weather consider a hire in May or September.
If you have a boat licence we have plenty of options for a bareboat rental in Portugal. However, for avid sailors and novice sailors alike we always recommend hiring a skippered vessel for maximum security and tranquillity while sailing. Skippers will handle the logistics such as manoeuvring the vessel and docking, and they will make sure you see everything on your travel itinerary, and more. Skippers are usually locals who know the area very well and can give you insider tips to ensure you make the most of your holiday in Portugal. For a more customised experience on board, have a skipper on board your yacht charter!
At Click&Boat we have a large fleet to accommodate all of your travel needs. If you’re wondering what type of boat to hire in Portugal, the answer will depend on your holiday goals. For a shorter holiday of only a day or two, consider a daily charter such as a RIB or a motorboat. For a longer time period, you’ll need something a bit more spacious and comfortable such as a yacht or a catamaran. For a more authentic sailing adventure, a sailboat is the best option however, they aren’t recommended for new sailors or people who are prone to seasickness as they tend to sway on the water. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it at Click&Boat!
