While renting a boat is quite common in many regions, it is generally perceived as being a very expensive operation. Of course, when chartering luxury superyachts of large sizes (40+ metres), the cost will be very high, reaching five or six figures per week. But how expensive is the rental, per day, of a medium to large sized, quality boat? With the aid of our expertise and offers, Boataffair tries to answer this question.

A story of an experience

Just before Christmas, I had received a phone call from a UK-based transformational coach, who was interested in chartering a yacht to host a retreat in spring 2018 in Greece. She was very excited to explain about the coaching programme she is doing with her female clients. The programme, she enthusiastically explained, focuses on supporting and enabling women to drive change in their lives, break through the old and achieve new passions. This would be her first retreat incorporated into the programme and she had very high standards of quality and customisation she required for her envisaged retreat to work right. And she thought the best place to do it will be on a boat.

On the 24th of January 2018 co-founder and CEO Adrian Walker and me took-off towards the 2018 Boot Düsseldorf Boat Show. The plan was simple, stay at the show for two days and raise as much awareness as we could about Boataffair. To do so, we wanted to talk to quality boat owners and charter companies, marinas, potential renters and any other stakeholder that share Boataffair’s values.
