Our day on Gama Yacht was just wonderful!! Captain Axel and Chef Florent did a great job! Florent created an excellent meal for us and the service was great! Captain Axel knew all of the best places to anchor and sight-see. The yacht was just beautiful! Phillipe, the owner of the yacht, was very helpful.

We rented the catamaran for 6 days. We were 6 in total and we’re extremely comfortable. The boat is beautiful. Very well equipped with all the amenities you need for a sailing trip. The size of the boat allows for big bedrooms and toilets. The captain was excellent. He proposed a very good route and adjusted as needed. He was highly knowledgeable and had great restaurant and excursion ideas.

Renting a Boat in Cannes

 

Known for its famous events, Cannes is also famous for its incredible coast and for its sailing culture. For most sailors, departing from Cannes will give you the best access to sail the French Riviera. With the proximity to other bustiling ports, Cannes has always been one of the most popular ports in the world. 

 

After getting to know the beautiful city by land, be sure to rent a boat and see the amazing coast of the Cote d'Azur. From Cannes, you can either charter for a week or you can simply rent a motorboat for the day and explore the region. Take a day trip and head north or south and explore Cannes surroundings. Because the areas are so close, you will see plenty of sailors that rented a boat in Nice and headed south to see the rest of the French Riviera and Cannes. Rent a sailboat in Cannes and explore all the coast.

 

 

Pricing and Information

 

As in all of France, the French Riviera's high season is typically starting from early May to mid-September. In addition to the high season, there are several regional events that can cause a spike in the amount of tourists. For yacht charters in Cannes, we recommend booking well in advance. Due to the luxury of the area, prices will be a bit higher than most other areas during this season. On average, you can expect to pay around 450€ per day for a catamaran rental in Cannes and 250€ per day for a sailboat. For motorboats, the range is very wide depending on your needs. The inventory in Cannes ranges from luxury yachts to fishing boats, so it is recommended to sort by the type of activity you will partake in. Motor boats start around 150€ per day and it will depend on what your specific project is, how many passengers and how far you would like to go. Speed boat rentals in Cannes are also available if you want to partake in sports or simply go a little faster. 

 

 

Do you need a license to rent a boat in Cannes?

 

Depending on what type of boat you are hiring, you will have different pieces of legislation. For sailboats and catamarans, France is one of the few countries where no license is needed. Even though no license is needed, you will have to show a nautical CV showing previous experience detailing the boats you've captained and the waters you've sailed. For catamarans, base managers and port authorities will want to see previous experience with a similar size boat. 

 

On the other hand, if you are looking to rent a motor boat, a coasta license is required to operate a motor boat with more than 6hp. For canal boats, no license is needed, but again, you will have to prove that you have some previous experience. If you do not have enough experience or want a stress free vacation, most boats come with the option to have a skipper. An added advantage of renting a boat with a skipper is their knowledge of the local areas. Since most skippers are local, they will be able to show you the hidden gems of the area. 

 

Overview of Cannes

 

The image of Cannes is associated solely with glitz and glamour and although this might be true, the city has something special to offer for a large spectrum of tourists. The turquoise waters mixed with white sandy beaches and the charm of the old town will make you see the city differently and solidify the idea that Cannes is one of the most charming resorts in the world. For more of the French Riviera touch, head further south and take your catamaran charter to Antibes

 

After you walk along La Croisette and see the luxury and elegance of this old fishing town, charter a yacht and enjoy the abundant sunshine. The sailing conditions in Cannes are ideal with winds that are moderate and waves that are relatively calm. Take in the scenery from the water as you see the beautiful contrast between the distinct architecture and the water. From Cannes, you can easily sail over to the Lérins Islands to experience a completely different scenery. You’ll be met with the fresh scent of pine while exploring unspoiled hidden beaches at Île Sainte-Marguerite.

 

Cannes is famous in all corners of the world. Its old port is considered as an essential place to sail by sailors. Located really close to the city center, Cannes’s marina benefits from large events such as the well-known film festival. The Cannes film festival isn’t the only large event, the NRJ music award and many others give rhythm and energy to the city, especially during the summer months. During this time, using peer-to-peer boat rental in Cannes is the ideal solution to enjoy the festivities at a low price.

 

While you are on the French Riviera and rent a boat in Monaco, you will have an unforgettable experience. Sail to Frejus to explore its beautiful waters.
