Five reasons to hire a boat in England

 

  • England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom and is in the south of the island. It borders Wales to the west and Scotland to the north. 

  • The best months for sailing in England are July, August and September. The weather is mild, and there is a low chance of rainfall.

  • England has a wonderful coastline to sail along. You can charter a boat in Southampton and start your cruise from there and on your way, don't forget to sail to Portsmouth.

  • If you rent a boat in England, you can easily sail to other destinations in Europe. Cross the English Channel to France or Belgium.

  • River tourism in England is very popular. Rent a boat in London or hire a boat on the river Thames.

 

Pricing and information about hiring a boat in England

 

Boat rental prices in England vary according to the type of vessel and the season. During the low season, canal boat charter prices start from 240 euros. If you wish to charter a sailing yacht, prices start from 230 euros in the low season. Please note that the high season in Scotland is in July and September. If you want to charter a boat in this season, we recommend that you book your boat two months in advance. Chartering a boat in the UK will allow you to fully explore all areas of the country.

 

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

 

Boat rentals in England are regulated, and if you are looking to hire a boat you will have to comply with the law. You do not need a licence to hire a boat on canals and rivers in the UK. When you hire a boat from these establishments, you will receive quick training on how to operate a boat. However, if you wish to hire a boat and sail along the coast, you will need to produce an ICC and show that you can recognise and read the signs and rules.

 

If you do not have a licence or sailing experience, you can rent any of our boats with a skipper from our catalogue. When you rent a skippered boat you can relax and enjoy your trip. The skippers help you to get to know the places you visit by boat in depth.

 

Things to do in England

 

⚓ Visit Stonehenge, one of the most mysterious places in the world. It is a 40-tonne rock formation site, no one knows how it was formed.

 

⚓ Walk along the Hadrian's Wall which measures over 150 kilometres and was built in 122-133 AD. 

 

⚓ If you are a soccer fan and it's the season, you can enjoy a match in one of the most famous stadiums in Europe.

 

⚓ Visit an English pub and sample the popular ales and food. Don't miss the famous fish and chips.

 

Practical Information:

 

To get to England, you can arrive by air at one of the four international airports that welcome international flights. You can also take the train from Europe to the UK, and from there you can travel to your preferred destination. But if you want to have a nautical adventure we suggest you charter a boat in Scotland and sail up and down the coast to England.
