Price and Availability


One of the most attractive things to sailors about France is the variety of coasts that are available. For most of the country, the prices are highest starting in June and ending in August to mid-September. The lowest prices are available during the period starting in November and ending in February. 


Boat Availability 


If your goal is to charter a yacht for the high period, you'll have to book well in advance. For summer charters, more than half of the fleet is already booked by March. If you book after this month, the number of the fleet that is booked goes up to near 80%. For day boats, the availability will depend on the port. In major ports, you'll have to book well in advance (we recommend at least 2-3 months before). In some instances, you may be able to find a day boat closer to the date of departure depending on inventory available.
