About Scansail

Scansail, your platform for private and professional boat chartering

Our story

Scansail was founded in Hamburg in 1983 and started as a yacht rental agency on the Baltic Sea, where it grew in popularity. Since then, we have focused on personalised and individual service in our Hamburg office. The Scansail__/Strong__ guarantee: we do our best to find the boat that best suits your needs to make your sailing trip unforgettable.

Although there are also many boats offered by rental agencies, you will find a wide selection of private offers on Scansail. The platform is founded on the principle of the sharing economy, facilitating yacht rentals between owners and sailors.

The private and professional boat charter platform

Scansail's platform is simple: owners can advertise their boat free of charge by providing photos, features, price and information about the sailing area. Interested parties can contact the owner directly via the Scansail messaging system and ask any questions they may have. In addition, owners can view the client's nautical qualifications so that they can select the right tenant for their boat.

Through the platform, renters can choose from a wide range of boats within various boating areas, check the reviews of other renters and contact the owner personally. This way you ensure a smooth sailing experience - sail with Scansail!
