EXPLORING ISLANDS, CREEKS AND TURQUOISE WATERS
A wide choice is available for summer boat rentals, with day excursions, weekly rentals or longer. Models range from 6 to 24 metres and come with or without a crew.
DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED ON THE DAY OF RENTAL
These documents are essential to ensure you and your passengers have correct insurance cover. Without these documents, we will not be able to finalise the boat rental formalities.
Documents to be presented:
- Boat Permit
- National Identity Card or Passport
- A Bank Card for the Deposit
When you rent a boat, it is compulsory to be in possession of a boat rental contract in order to comply with coast guard rules.
You should therefore allow for 30 minutes of boat rental formalities before you can embark.
The following information will be included in the boat rental contract:
Information about the Vessel
- Name of boat
- Make and number of engines
- Vessel registration number
- Maximum capacity
Information about the Customer
- Last name
- First name
- Phone number (preferably mobile)
- Identity card or passport number
Details of the Boat Rental
- Date and time of departure
- Expected date and time of return
- Rental amount
- Deposit amount
- Quantity of fuel
Once you have read and signed the contract, you will be given an original copy together with the general terms and conditions of pleasure boat rentals. These conditions are in line with recommendations from the syndicate of boat rental companies.
Before your departure, an inventory of the rented vessel will be established in your presence, which you must sign to finalise and validate your boat rental.

Be aware that there is a speed limit of 20 knots in the Gulf of Saint Tropez and 5 knots within 300 metres of the shoreline. All our customers are kindly requested to respect these speed limits in order to avoid their liability being engaged.
You will find the following equipment on board:
