Renting a boat in Nice

 

Not far from the Italian border, along the Bay of Angels and at the mouth of the Paillon is Nice, the jewel of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region. Nice is the largest city on the French Riviera and its port is conveniently located only a few miles from the airport, near the main tourist attractions.Approximately a day from Corsica by sailboat and 5 hours by motorboat, Nice is an ideal starting point for your cruises in the Mediterranean. Its plentiful amount of natural assets and Mediterranean climate make it a must see destination when renting a boat in the French Riviera.

 

Enjoy a boat ride to admire the beauty of it’s mountains, turquoise waters, and pebble beaches. If you’re looking for an excuse to visit outside of the summer, Nice welcomes the largest carnival in France every winter, which happens to be one of the most famous in the world. For two weeks, several hundred thousand people come together to watch the show. Rent a catamaran in Nice and relax in the beautiful coast, or if you like sailing rent a sailboat and sail to Italy.

 

When to hire a boat in Nice?

 

In Nice, the sailing season runs similar to the rest of France. The boating season will usually start around April and run all the way through to October. Similar to most countries in Europe, the busiest months will be July and August, which will have the highest number of tourists and sailors. If you plan outside of these two months, you will still find favorable weather.

 

Boat availability and Cost in Nice

 

To estimate the price of boat rentals in Nice, it will depend on the season as well as the type of boat you're looking to charter. For catamarans, you can expect to pay on average 450€ per day with sailboats averaging a bit less at 350€. For motorboats, it is best to sort by type of activity you wish to partake in. Some boats are better for exploring the coast and others for watersports. Either way, you'll find exactly what you are looking for with motorboats starting at 150€ a day.

 

If you are planning on chartering a yacht for a week, you will need to book your boat in advance. Due to the popularity of the region, most boats are already booked by March.

 

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

 

The license requirements in France are quite particular. For sailboats, no formal license is required but you will have to provide documentation of previous experience. You will have to provide a nautical CV which details your experience in regards to the previous boats you've captained and the waters in which you've sailed.

 

If you are renting a motorboat, you will need a coastal license if the boat is more powerful than 6hp. If you do not have the experience or want a stress free vacation, rent a boat with skipper!

 

Hiring a boat in Nice 

 

When arriving to Nice, you'll feel the wonderful sensation of being in France while the mediterranean wind hits you. The beautiful beach and iconic blue beach chairs will make it clear why this is a top destination worldwide. Get to know the culinary side of Nice as well as the vibrant street life before starting your boat trip. You'll feel the Italian influence right away in the local cuisine and the general feel of the streets. The great thing about the French Riviera is that all of the cities are unique and distinct in their own ways. If your itinerary spans out a few days, we highly suggest sailing to Cannes to explore another side of the French Riviera. You can get to Nice if you rent a boat in Frejus and sail to this beautiful city.

A good idea would be to rent a boat in Monaco to sail to  Antibes and enjoy the french riviera!
