Do i have sailing experience?

Every year many customers who have never boarded a boat without a license can do it with us for the first time. Apart from the Bayliner Verado motorboat for which a boat license is required, the remaining boats do not require a license, so they are easy to maneuver and a short initial training course will teach you how to use the vehicle.

Departure times may vary depending on the duration of the rental (1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours or full day). The rental is available from 8 am to 18 last   hour available for rent a boat for up to one hour to 19 since the end of working hours.  We kindly ask you to show up at least 15 min. before the rental start time so that we can explain the use of the boat and respect other reservations.

The top speed of boats without a license is 45 km / h, while that of the Bayliner Verado (with license) is 75 km / h. By consulting the section dedicated to the Recommended Routes you will find useful information to plan your boat trip according to your preferences.

What kind of boat to hire?
