Renting a Boat in Lisbon


Lisbon is the beautiful capital city of Portugal that is a dream holiday destination for various types of travellers. If you like to explore exciting cities with plenty of cafés and restaurants or go on a sailing adventure, Lisbon is definitely the ideal choice. Given it’s geographic location on the Atlantic coast it became a popular sailing destination over the years. 


Rent a boat in Lisbon and explore the hidden gems of the Atlantic coast, discover the Belém Tower, the Ponte 25 de Abril Bridge or admire the famous Catholic monument of the National Sanctuary of Christ the King. There is definitely something for everyone in Lisbon that can fill up a memorable holiday for the whole family or a group of friends. 


How much does it cost to rent a boat in Lisbon?


The price of renting a boat in Lisbon is depending on many factors. Firstly, the time of the year will naturally dictate the price. The more tourists are in the area the higher the prices will be. In Lisbon the high season is during summer time, so expect to find the highest prices then and the most tourists in the city. If you plan to charter a yacht in Lisbon, expect to pay around 200€/day for a sailboat and 400€/day for a catamaran.


If you rather rent a motor boat, the price will depend on the size and type of boat you like. We recommend planning in advance to know what kind of boat will be suitable for your activities. You need to rent a different boat if you plan to do water sports or go on a day trip along the coast to discover the region. But surely you will find the best that will make your holiday filled with new experiences and memories with your friends or family. 


Boat availability in Lisbon


Lisbon is a very famous and popular holiday destination that makes it very easy to rent a boat as there is a huge selection available. We highly recommend booking a boat months before your holiday especially if you’d like to charter a yacht. If you wish to rent a motor boat for a day it is still advised to do a few weeks of month before to avoid any unpleasant surprises and shortage in boat availability. The high season in the area is during summer, so expect to find the most tourists then. If you would like to avoid the crowds in the city and wish to visit Lisbon when it’s calmer, we recommend visiting in spring or autumn. The weather is still mild and sunny, so perfect for sightseeing and sailing and the added benefit is the less tourists. 


Do I need a licence to charter a yacht in Lisbon?


If you rent a boat in Lisbon you will need to have a valid boating license with you no matter the type and size of the boat. It means that both for sailboats and motor boats, valid documentation is needed. If your boating license is issued by any EU Member States it will be automatically accepted in Portugal. However, you don’t worry if you don’t have the required documents or just don’t feel comfortable renting a bareboat, most of the boats are available to rent with a skipper. If you want a stress free vacation, this is the best option. Having a skipper means that they have the technical knowledge to control the boat and the local knowledge from the area. The only thing you are left with is to sit back and enjoy your holiday! Your Lisbon trip will become an unforgettable holiday experience for sure!


Overview of Lisbon


Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal located on the Atlantic coast. It is not only the capital city but also the biggest city in the country. Lisbon is the westernmost capital city in Europe and the only on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean. Lisbon is a very popular holiday destination that receives millions of tourists each year. The city is well known for the tons of stunning landscapes, the vibrant nightlife, excellent Portugese cuisine, the colourful tiles and the famous tramway across the city. If you're looking for nearby destinations, you'll easily have acess to nearby cities that are just as charming. Sail your boat to Algarve, a charming region just south of Lisbon. Here in Algarve, one of the most famous spots for sailing is Faro. You can either sail directly here or rent a boat in Porto and get to know the coast from a different perspective. 


Thankfully Lisbon is a perfectly walkable city with every important attraction nearby, so that makes the city very easy to be discovered. However, you should definitely try out the famous tram that goes around the city as it is a very unique and special experience. Hop on at one attraction and travel to the next one with the tram. Keep in mind that during the busiest months the trams are very crowded and might be difficult to get on, but definitely worth waiting for it.


Furthermore, a few places that are must-see are the Belém Tower, the authentic historic quarters, the square Praca de Commercio, the Cathedral of Lisbon. And there are many other attractions in the city that are worth visiting!  Don’t miss out on trying the Pastel de Nata which is a famous and delicious dessert in the region.


After exploring the city center of Lisbon, set sail to discover the Setubal by boat. It will further amaze you with all the uniqueness and stunning landscapes that it has to offer. You will see the area from a different perspective and discover other secret places.
