If you don't have a boat license, renting a boat on the Click&Boat platform is no problem. With so many yacht charters to choose from in France, it is no surprise that it is possible to rent a boat without a license here. You are sure to find an option suitable for you even without a boat license. Depending on the size and type of the boat, you may not require a license to drive it - you should always check this with the boat owner via the Click&Boat platform's messaging system. In most cases, it is a popular choice to charter a yacht with a skipper or captain. Not only is your captain able to drive the boat for you and keep you safe but they also come in handy as a local expert. Your skipper will know all of the best spots. If you want to go snorkeling, your skipper will know the place to go. They will also be able to recommend you the best local restaurants, the most beautiful secluded beaches and be able to answer any other questions you may have about the boat, sailing, or the local area of France.
Not all boats available on the platform can be rented without a license, but depending on the available license or level of sailing experience, there are two categories:
large sailing and motorboats, which can also be rented by those without a license, but with a skipper on board;
smaller boats, such as inflatable dinghies and motorboats without a cabin, which, given the maximum power of 40 hp, can be chartered without a license and easily steered.
The final choice of a charter depends on aspects such as the duration of the holiday in France and the stages planned, the need for more space on board, or the need to sail with certain comforts.
The cost of renting a boat without a license depends on several factors the type of boat, the equipment on board, the season, and the duration of the rental.
In general, the rental cost ranges from £50 to £400 per day, not including the cost of fuel, as it depends on the length of the chosen route.
In France, privately owned motorboat(s) are available for hire. See other motorboat(s) in the area
