Hire a Private Yacht in France with Scansail

Known worldwide for its impressive gastronomy and natural beauty, France is appreciated by tourists every year. Above all, the French are known for their savoir vivre, a unique way of living life. Get to know this Mediterranean country in the best way possible with a private yacht hire. Popular coastal regions include Brittany and the French Riviera. However, there are also rivers and lakes worth a visit such as Canal du Midi or the Seine in Paris. Whether you seek cultural activities, picturesque towns or a beautiful blue sea, France is sure to leave you with unforgettable memories.

How much does it cost to hire a private yacht in France?

There are many factors that can affect the overall price of your private yacht hire in France. For example, the price can fluctuate depending on the region, the seasonality, the duration of your trip and the type of boat. Any extras such as a skipper and a crew will also likely increase the price of your hire. In general, the prices according to boat type are as follows.

What is the best time to visit France?

The ideal time to hire a private yacht in France is dependent on your preferences and what region you are travelling to. So, while the most popular time to visit is typically July and August, you may want to see France for another moment. On the southern coast of the country, popular destinations such as Nice and Marseille have long, hot summers and mild winters. Therefore, you can visit anytime from Spring to Autumn and experience pleasant temperatures. However, northern locations such as Brittany have harsher winters and cold waters from the Atlantic Ocean, so summer would be the best time to visit.

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

As you browse through the yacht selection on Scansail, you will find that many yachts come with the option to include a skipper. While it is possible to hire a private yacht without a skipper, there are many benefits to having one on board with you. For instance, a professional skipper will take care of all the manoeuvring of the yacht. This means that you can relax and enjoy the journey without having to think about sailing, docking or anchoring the yacht. Moreover, a skipper will be experienced with the regional waters, so whether you navigate the Atlantic or the Mediterranean, you will be in safe hands. This also means that they can show you all the unique areas that only locals know about. Ultimately, the choice to hire a skipper is yours, but keep in mind that they can help you have the best boating holiday.

What to do in France?

France’s landscape is so diverse that choosing where to go and what to see can be a daunting task. For this reason, we have compiled a list of our top destinations in France that are sure to make a great boating experience.

Brittany

Located in the northwestern coast of France, Brittany is famous for its extensive sandy beaches, rocky and rugged cliffs and imposing lighthouses. The north coast in particular is known for its wild surf and bizarre cliffs. The pink granite coast (Côte de Granit Rosé) near the town of Ploumanac'h is particularly impressive. These rocks glow pink, especially in the evening sun. This 65-kilometre-long stretch of coast between Paimpol and Trébeurden also offers several good anchoring opportunities.

The French Riviera

In the south of France, you will find the famous French Riviera, also known as the Cote d’Azur. This stretch of coastline from Cassis to Menton is renowned for its fashionable seaside resorts with elegant hotels, noble villas, good restaurants and luxury cafés. Navigating along the coast will leave you stunned as you witness the beautiful cities of Monte Carlo, Nice and Saint Tropez. All in all, the aquamarine waters and silky sands are perfect for swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing.

Corsica

The island of Corsica lies about 100 nautical miles from the coast of southern France, making it a great sailing destination. The wild, primaeval landscape, the historic harbour towns and the culinary delights of Corsica promise a beautiful and eventful private yacht hire in France. One of the most typical features of the island is the rugged landscape perfect for hiking.

Paris

Lastly, one cannot mention France without discussing its capital, Paris. This city is known as the city of love, making it perfect for a romantic getaway. Hire a private yacht in the river Seine and travel through the city, stopping at the sparkling Eiffel Tower.
