Description of Rubén's sailboat

Sailboat Beneteau First Class 8 7.85m

Rent a boat in Albufeira and meet your dream holiday! ⛵ The tour is different every day. Depending on the weather and the time, we choose the best option for you to have an amazing day. 🌄 Do you want to enter the caves? Our boat is too big to enter the caves, but we can stop near and you enter with the kayak that we have onboard. 🍔 You can bring your own drinks and food onboard 🌮🥗 ⛽ Fuel is not included in the price. The price variates between 20 and 40 euros. 👨‍✈️ You can rent this boat with or without a captain. If you don't want a captain, you can drive it but is mandatory for you to have a boat license, according to the Portugal Government. If you want a captain, the captain is paid also in the day. For half a day is only 75 € and a full day is only 100€. Now you pay for the booking and on the day you pay for the captain, the fuel and 5 euro person the enter in the boat. because to enter the boat you need to pay for a taxi boat that will let you on the boat 😎⛵ I hope to sail with you soon. PS: if this boat doesn't suit you, you can check our other boats in my profile 🚤⛴🛶

Ruben has an amazing boat. Perfect for a quick sail around the close by locations. We hoped for a bit more wind, but had a great experience without!

We had a wonderful day on the boat! Our skipper, Miguel, made our day very pleasant. The boat was what we expected as described in the advertisement. We had good communication with the owner. Thank you

We have managed to spend 7 days on board 2 adults and a 12 years old girl. And visiting the surrounding spots. 2 nights in Lagos marina. And anchoring in Alvor. The ferragudo buoy was a nice spot and convenient as departure and arrival point. The dinghy was a kayak, the portable shower very much appreciated.the toilet : a bucket. You have to bring your water because no water tank. No cooking equipment.This is more a day boat rather than a cruiser.with minimum equipment but it is sailing with an old main sail and furling Genoa only. The mercury 4 strokes 9.9 hp is ok. A good experience overall ! I mention all above details because I found the add was lacking of such details. Thanks to Ruben , very helpful and reactive !

Beautiful day spent out on the water. We got a little unlucky with the wind so we weren't able to drop anchor and do much sunbathing/swimming, but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. Communication was fairly prompt. Pick up/drop off from our accommodation was a huge plus!

We had an amazing time with Ruben and Dick! They were very knowledgeable about sailing as well as the area and coming up with recommendations for what to do based on the waves and the wind. We definitely made the most out of our time on the boat and it was an experience we will never forget :)

The boat is perfect to explore the surroundings for one day trips and despite its age it is in great shape. Thr only inconvenient is that it doas not have a toilet aboad, but for hot summer days or few hours trips it is not really an issue. Ruben is a great skipper, made us feel relaxt and at home, and helped us remember all we have learned in our skipper classes. After three days with him we were confident enough to take the boat out by ourselfs, but unfortunately we did not found the time to do that. However, we promise to come back as soon as possible. Thank you Ruben for three great days 😀

We chartered the boat including Ruben as skipper, and really had a great experience, even though there was unfortunately little wind. He is great company, showed us beaches only reachable by boat and swimming there or using the paddle board on board. We still had a good time, and hope to be back for another time when there is more wind to tell more about the sailing qualities of the boat. Highly recommended experience, we really enjoyed the day.

Ruben was nice but he proposed to offer us the ride from the house to the harbor (like 50minutes) and, at the end of the day, he asked to pay it... The experience was not so bad because of the weather and atmosphere. A little disappointed about the journey but in general it wasn't so bad.
