There are hundreds of marinas in the metropolitan area, between sea and river ports in France. With over 3,000 registered yachts, the number is steadily growing and there is an increase in the number of companies that offer yacht charters to provide their clients with unique and luxurious experiences. If you think you don't have enough reasons to charter a yacht in France, here are five!
1. An opportunity for you to take to the sea
Who wouldn't dream of getting away from it all and going far away, to relax and disconnect from reality? Wouldn't you like to go to a place far away from the crowd to be able to decompress and be in an airtight bubble? To focus on yourself and enjoy new horizons where only a few people are? A yacht allows you to do all that and more. It allows you to get away and recharge your batteries, thanks to the calm and serenity of the sea, where only sun, wind and seagulls surround you. Maximum relaxation is offered to you to have a day or stay filled with peace and relaxation. Whether on the Atlantic, Mediterranean or Channel coast, there is no shortage of destinations and ideas for getting away from it all.
2. A way to enjoy a relaxing moment with your loved ones
Chartering a yacht could be the perfect excuse to enjoy some friendly and bonding time with loved ones. Depending on the size of the yacht you can invite all family members to spend their day onboard. You can organise activities on board, have a barbecue or just have an aperitif with your cousins and grandparents. If you prefer a smaller vessel, you can opt for a family outing on the sea, with parents and children. It's an unrivalled moment of relaxation, where you can soak up the sun's rays and sip a cocktail while the wind grazes your skin and the children play cards or try to spot sea animals. A day or a stay at sea onboard a lavish yacht could take your mind off things but above all, it could rejuvenate you and your loved ones, further strengthening your bonds and creating new memories that time will not erase at all.
3. Experience luxury
Chartering a yacht and sailing on it allows you to experience luxury without having to pay a fortune. You can enjoy a majestic experience in a large, grand boat at an affordable price. Enjoy a luxury themed holiday, but on a much more modest budget. Why not try cruising on a yacht in the beautiful port of Nice or the grand harbour of Antibes? Discovering the Mediterranean in a breathtaking setting allows you to experience la Dolce Vita and enjoy an adventure full of surprises and relaxation. Whether it is a small yacht or a boat larger than a flat, it is always synonymous with luxury and comfort. So don't hesitate to book yours.
4. Enjoy a variety of water activities from the yacht
Not only do you get to enjoy the view and the peace and quiet in the middle of the water, but you can also enjoy a variety of water activities. Why not go paddleboarding in the Mediterranean? Or perhaps you would prefer to discover the marine environment by doing a little snorkelling? You can also swim and enjoy a water environment away from the beaches and crowds, where you can swim with many kinds of fish. How about a thrilling ride on a jet ski in the Atlantic Ocean? There are many options, but it's up to you to choose the activity that best meets your criteria and expectations. But you should know that aboard a yacht, you will always have a plethora of activities to do and thrills to experience. The only thing is that the boat you choose is equipped with everything you need.
5. Have a boat party to celebrate a special occasion
Do you have a birthday? A stag or hen party? A marriage proposal planned? The boat party is excellent for this. Onboard a yacht, everything is better, and the thrills and emotions are multiplied by tenfold, thanks to the general ambience of a yacht. This makes it the ideal place to be on any special occasion. Depending on the size of the yacht, you can have an intimate and romantic event. You can also have a grand party where you can play loud music, and the balance of the boat is in harmony with the rhythmic dancing. Moreover, in France, there are iconic places where partying is the main activity of its guests. Saint-Tropez is an excellent example. It hosts the best parties in France, and you can hire the best yachts in its harbour to get into the Tropezian spirit and party until dawn.
When is the best time to rent a Yacht in France?
All seasons have a unique charm onboard a yacht. Of course, it is more common to see clients on the prowl during the summer because they prefer to enjoy the sea and the sun on the yacht. But if you prefer a moderate temperature, you can also charter your yacht during spring or autumn. It is also possible to enjoy the yacht charter experience in winter, but you should remember to cover up well to protect yourself from the low temperatures, especially on the English Channel and the Atlantic coast. Bear in mind that a yacht charter is weather-dependent and may be cancelled due to harsh weather conditions that may be considered unsuitable for sailing. However, cancellations are much less likely in the summer than in winter. So are you tempted to go to the heart of the French maritime territories and enjoy a surprising experience?
