Fantastic day, I would highly recommend using SamBoat if you want to go private without the high price tag and want a skipper who is a real professional.

Boating along the Amalfi coast with Rafael on Alfonso’s beautiful Twister Two boat was simply amazing and the best part of our trip. Rented the private boat in Positano for 3 hours and was able to see a gorgeous sunset.

Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know about the product and billing. Can't find the answer you're looking for? Please contact us.
To rent a boat on SamBoat, nothing could be simpler, you just have to search for a boat according to your criteria (sailing area, type of boat, date, number of passengers, with or without skipper...) and select the boat of your choice.

You will then have to create your account in order to be able to exchange with the owner and make the payment of your rent.
The rental rate is set freely by the boat owner. This rate depends on the type of boat, its size and the season.

On average, a motorboat rental costs about 300 euros per day (excluding gas). A sailboat is generally rented by the week, it is necessary to count on average 2 400 € for a monohull and 4 300 € for a catamaran.

If you want a skipper, it will cost you on average 200 € per day. Gas is also often extra.
  • If you do not have a license, it is possible to rent a boat with a skipper. The skipper will be responsible for steering the boat and taking you to the best sailing spots.
  • If you rent a motorboat without a skipper, you must have a boat license if it has more than 6 horsepower.
  • To rent a sailboat in France, no permit is required. However, it is sometimes required by some professional charter companies for insurance reasons.
Abroad, the boating license may be required depending on the country and the boat hired.
The amount of the boat deposit is set freely by the owner depending on the type of boat. The deposit is used to pay for damage to the boat, the insurance excess or any damage suffered by the owner. The deposit can be managed freely by the owner directly or via SamBoat.

In addition, SamBoat offers various optional insurances: cancellation insurance and deposit redemption insurance.
