Day Yacht and Boat Charters - Plan a Day out on the Water!
Make your next Holiday extra special with a Day Charter!
Everyone dreams of a day spent on a yacht, cruising to secluded beaches in Sardinia, or dining at seaside restaurants in St Tropez and trying out all the latest water toys, you are sure to have a day like no other! If you enjoy being on a boat but don't intend to spend your entire holiday on the water, a day charter can be a great option, and will surely be the most memorable day of your holiday. Or perhaps if you're a yachting novice, you could try renting a yacht for a day to dip your feet in the water before planning a whole week at sea!
Experience the glamorous coastline of the Côte d'Azur, cruising for a beach lunch at Club 55 in St Tropez and arriving back just in time to watch the spectacular Fireworks in Cannes during your French Riviera Yacht Charter. Step back in time and visit the ancient ruins of Pompeii and fall in love along the spectacular Amalfi Coast such as in Capri or Naples, or find your very own piece of heaven on one of the many Greek islands.
Prepare yourself for a day of fun in the sunshine. Start the morning with a light breakfast, head to a secluded bay for a swim and suntan, maybe try out the toys, then drop anchor and head ashore to one of many highly-recommended beach restaurants. An ideal chance to steady your sea legs if you’re not used to it!
For those with a larger party (up to 12 people) who want to travel in more comfort. A boat like this can be rented for the day with a skipper who will take the responsibility of cruising so you can explore the coast and relax. You'll be provided with some refreshments and snacks and have full use of the luxurious yacht.
Crewed Motor Yacht Charter
If you're looking for the ultimate day out, a crewed charter is for you. With a dedicated crew to take care of your every need, you can relax and enjoy the views, take a dip or and try out some of the water toys!
We have day charter yachts based in almost every port worldwide, but there are several stand-out charter locations. See our favourites below:
If Spain is more to your taste, Ibiza is also a fantastic choice, with the party scene being the main attraction but also secluded coves and stunning beaches to explore, as well as the requisite stop for swimming and lunch on Formentera. Palma and Marbella also have plenty to offer for Day Charters, making for an incredible day out.
Greece, and especially the Cyclades Islands boast popular destinations such as Mykonos. It is common to take out daily boat rentals in Greece as well as a villa to enable you to spend your days exploring the hundreds of islands nearby. You can also charter boat with a skipper from Athens, which has a major international airport.
Italy offers fantastic opportunities for day charters, especially in Sardinia and La Madellena, Liguria, the famous Gulf of Naples enveloping Naples/Capri/Positano, and other destinations including Sicily and the Aeolian Islands.
If you're looking for a Day Charter for an Event of more than 12 people, that normally requires a yacht with a specialised license.
Here's what some of our happy customers had to say after their Day Charters:
It was AWESOME!!! Very professional, tons of fun. Great boat and crew. I would do it all over again, it was a fantastic family memory. Thanks for your help in putting it together.
A customer who rented a day catamaran in Tortola for a large family outing.
I just want to thank you for all your hard work in setting up my wife and I on one hell of a day. The boat was fantastic, the weather and scenery were beautiful. You really made it a special day by going that extra mile in securing a reasonably priced boat for my wife and I to take out and enjoy ourselves. I will definitely be using your services again when my friends and I head off to the Caribbean next year and will be in direct contact with you since you were such a pleasure to work with.

Our dedicated team of brokers take care of everything for you: from finding the right boat and skipper, confirming availability, providing maps to the boat and suggesting interesting things to do in the area. But we also understand that you may have some worries associated with hiring a boat. Recognising this, we insist on the following from our day boat charters:
- They are all insured by the owner
- They all conform to strict marine regulations of their respective countries
- Skippers speak English (if you have different requirements, please let us know)
- Generally speaking, if the weather is inclement, we will attempt to move the date so that you can still do the charter
- We will give you the best price, without "middleman" markups! Going directly will not give you a better price, and in many cases, you will get a worse price.
Our team of brokers have walked the docks in ports around the world to find you quality boats, from reliable owners, that will give you great value for your money. We'd like to suggest the right boat for you - simply click on one of the buttons below to see the boats or have us suggest one for you, or continue to read on to learn more about day charters!
Skippers can provide a wealth of information about the area, get you into interesting restaurants or secluded bays, and generally make your day safer and more enjoyable. And for about €150 to €200 per day, they are a bargain! As a courtesy, don't forget to tip the skipper (generally 5-10% of the charter price), and provide them lunch along the way.
We have many boats available for day charters, predominantly based in the South of France, Ibiza and Mallorca, and even day yachts in Italy! We also have some excellent day boat charter itineraries on the site.
Whether you are interested in chartering for corporate and special events or with your friends and family, our team of brokers can advise you on the perfect yacht to charter for the day!Take a look at our video of a St Tropez Day Charter:
