How It Works
Whether you are looking for short term day boat hire, or a fully fledged skippered sailing holiday, you can search our wide range of destinations, boat types and trip dates. Book instantly, pay securely and enjoy the trip of a lifetime!
Search and filter
Search by any combination of destination, boat type or trip dates. Filter your search results to find the perfect boat for your needs – fine tune the location, and then the boat by size / layout, age, choose your favourite manufacturer, and filter by specific equipment you want on board or optional extras such as a hostess, skipper, SUP board or kayak.
Boats listed as “online bookable” (this is also a search filter) can be booked instantly. Pay and secure your boat booking within seconds, or make a request to book directly to the boat owner.
Message the boat owner
Message the boat owner if you have any specific questions or requests over timings, what’s included or anything else. You should receive a response through the messaging portal on your profile page and also by email.
Payment protection is provided by SagePay and PayPal (you don’t need to have a PayPal account to pay by PayPal), and payment by credit card is possible on either. If there are any serious issues with the boat or it is not as it should be, you will be be automatically refunded. We will also provide another boat option as near as we can and as quickly as we can. We have 13,000+ to choose from so there’s a good chance we’ll be able to get you on another one fast in the unlikely event of an issue!
Your booking confirmation will be sent by email, and you will receive information from the boat owner with regards to location of the boat, parking, provisioning, extras and other details. Message the boat owner directly if you have any further questions.
Finally, be sure to enjoy a safe and relaxing boating experience. At the marina / boat pickup you pay for any extras and usually a security deposit (this can sometimes be requested a few days before in certain situations). All boats are 100% safe, holding commercial charter insurance and an up-to-date coding certificate. Please respect the sea, the environment and the boat you borrow.
