Boat Rental in France 

France, the country of good wine, cheese, fashion, and romance could be the next destination on your bucket list for your sailing adventure. There are plenty of areas to choose from to start your next vacation. A top destination is the Cote d'Azur or French Riviera. It stretches over 100 kilometers, and lures tourists from all over the world, year after year, with its magnificent blue sea, green lands, picturesque towns, and bustling cities such as Monte Carlo, Nice, Cannes, and Saint-Tropez.

Why rent a boat in France?  

There’s no doubt that France’s expansive seafront attracts boaters from all over the world. Whether it’s sailing along the Atlantic coast, the Mediterranean, or even on French rivers and canals, you will discover ports, anchorages, and islands rich in history. By renting a boat in France, you will be able to discover the authentic beauty of the French coasts. In France, you will find many types of boats: sailboats, catamarans, motorboats, semi-rigid boats, houseboats, and luxury yachts.

Many regions share a passion for water sports: Brittany and Normandy, the land of great sailors, the South of France known for its catamarans and beautiful yachts or Occitanie and its houseboats sailing down the Canal du Midi. Renting a boat in France is a great adventure, for a day or a week cruise.

Where to sail in France?

Discover the French landscapes by boat:


When speaking about France we cannot miss mentioning Paris. The most famous, and one of the most beautiful cities in France, is also a possible destination for boat rental. Are you in the mood for a romantic cruise on The Seine? If you thought visiting the Eiffel Tower was impressive, wait until you see it from a boat!


In Brittany, a region where boating is a common passion, discover the Emerald Coast, Bréhat, and Ouessant for the North and Quiberon, Belle-Île, and Bénodet towards the South. Also consider sailing around the nautical cities of Saint-Malo, Quimper, Lorient, Brest, Concarneau, and Vannes. And don't forget to navigate through the Glénans archipelago if the opportunity arises!

French Riviera

On the French Riviera (or Cote d’Azur), you will be able to rent motorboats for day trips as well as sailboats and catamarans of all sizes for your cruises under the Mediterranean Sea from Marseille, Cannes, La Ciotat, etc... Other sailing routes? Set sail to the stunning islands by Hyères, discover the Calanques national park, or even cruise around Billionaires' Bay.


On the Isle of Beauty, the change of scenery is unreal. One cannot get tired of sailing to Bonifacio, diving in the Lavezzi archipelago or going to the beautiful Sanguinaires islands. This island encompassing the drastic landscapes of the sea and mountains attracts boaters year after year, from the newcomers to the biggest lover of Corsica.

When is the best time to sail in France?

The best time to sail in France is between April and October. If possible, avoid sailing during the months of July and August when tourist crowds are at their highest. The water temperature varies according to the region. In Brittany, it is usually in the 60's°F, while in the Mediterranean, the water is generally warmer, and in the mid 70's°F.

Rent with or without a skipper

There are no more reasons not to set sail! With Click&Boat, the leading boat rental service, you can book a boat rental with an experienced captain in France. Whether you are planning to set sail from Brittany or Corsica, a local expert in your midst will show you the little-known and most beautiful places that you might have not otherwise visited.

You will be able to become a competent crew member and take advantage of learning how to handle a boat and become a true sailor if you wish! At the same time, if you wish to relax, that’s not a problem too. Let your captain and/or crew take care of everything from navigating, anchoring and docking.

Which boat to rent in France?

Finding the ideal boat for your cruise is not always easy. Let us give you some tips on how to find the right type of boat according to your needs & desires.


For day rentals, the motorboat is your go-to boat. Contrary to other sailboats and catamarans, renting a motor boat in France will give you access to many nautical leisure activities such as wakeboarding, tubing, etc. In addition, navigating by motorboat or RIB makes it easier to visit small magical creeks.


Ideal for sailing in all weathers, the sailboat is a sure value for a long cruise. The sailboat is the boat of choice for travelers seeking exploration. A sailboat rental is recommended for cruising along the French Riviera to Corsica or to enjoy the Breton coasts.


For a relaxing cruise with family or friends, we recommend the catamaran. A catamaran rental in France is ideal for typically accommodating a group of up to 12 people on board. For a relaxing cruise along the Mediterranean Sea, it is the most suitable boat as it will allow you to access unique and less accessible landscapes from the land.


Yacht charter in France is a five-star option to enjoy maximum comfort on board during your cruise on the "French Riviera".


Finally, for a river cruise, houseboats prove to be the best choice. Embarking up to 12 people and acting as a floating hotel, the houseboat rental is perfect for slow life enthusiasts and very quiet navigation. Embark on a houseboat trip even if you don’t have a boat license, as there is a wide choice of boat rentals without a license on Click&Boat. Renting a houseboat is the best way to discover the Canal du Midi from Toulouse to Sète.
