Charter a Private Yacht in Portugal with Scansail

Portugal is a country located on the western coast of the Iberian Peninsula in southwestern Europe. It is bordered by Spain to the east and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. The Portuguese coast is known for its stunning beaches, rugged cliffs, and picturesque fishing villages, which can all be accessed by boat.

Some unique aspects of navigating around Portugal include the opportunity to visit the Azores, a group of islands located in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean, and the Madeira Islands, which are known for their subtropical climate and beautiful beaches. Chartering a private yacht in Portugal also allows you to visit the many charming towns and villages along the coast, as well as the country's beautiful national parks and protected areas. Additionally, Portugal has a long history of fishing and sailing, which can be experienced first-hand through yacht charters.

How much does it cost to charter a private yacht in Portugal?

There are many factors that can influence the overall price of a private yacht charter in Portugal.

What is the best time to visit Portugal?

Ultimately, the best time to charter a private yacht in Portugal will depend on your personal preferences and the type of experience you are looking for. It is always a good idea to check the weather and tourist forecasts for the specific region you will be visiting before making your decision.

Portugal has a Mediterranean climate, with warm, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Therefore, the summer months (June to September) are generally the best time to charter a yacht in Portugal, as the weather is warm and sunny and the sea is calm. However, the summer can also be very busy, with high tourist numbers and crowded marinas. The shoulder seasons (April to May and October to November) can also be good times to visit, as the weather is still pleasant and there are fewer crowds.

Should I charter a private yacht with or without a skipper?

As you browse through Scansail’s selection of yachts, you will notice that many come with the option to include a skipper. While this typically adds an extra cost to your overall journey, there are many benefits that make having a skipper worthwhile. For example, a professional skipper will be able to handle all the navigation of the private yacht, including the sailing, docking and anchoring. This means that you won’t need any nautical experience to have the boating holiday of a lifetime. Moreover, a skipper will be familiar with the regional waters, so they can show you the very best that Portugal has to offer.
