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 for a boat charter 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 to boat type are as follows.

What is the best time for a yacht charter in 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 in France 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.
