Our services

Let RENTABOATSOUTH help you to plan your next cruising holiday :

Planning your cruise
Our representative will help you make your choice according to your needs and budget. We can provide all the information necessary to make sure that you make the right decision.  Contact us for any questions you might have.

A crewed yacht charter is perhaps one of the most memorable vacations that you will ever take. It is up to you to choose the type of boat, your destination and travel arrangements. Every crew will have the same preoccupation, making sure that you will spend the best vacation ever and to give you complete satisfaction.

A sailboat offers the best comfort : small number of passengers, privates cabins, well equipped kitchen, BBQ, inflated dinghy to reach land and an experienced skipper to undertake a safe cruise. With him, you can plan an itinerary to explore several islands, to visit isolated beaches or to extend your stay at your favourite spot. Relaxation, exoticism and comfort are the secrets for unforgettable holidays!

You will be surprised by the warm welcome of  our skipper and hostess (optional). You will appreciate their French culture during your holidays; your hosts are bilingual (french and english) and by experience, they are very familiar with the needs of vacationers. The crew is prepared to do all the sailing, but passengers can lend a hand.

Getting to your yacht
From your original destination, you will need to take a plane to Nassau, Bahamas. A charter during the most popular periods should be booked several months in advance if at all possible. Transportation between the airport and the yacht's marina is provided by taxi. Usually around 50$ one way, not included.

Chartering your sailboat
You can charter a boat exclusively for your party or share it with other passengers; most charters consist of between 2 and 8 individuals in comfortable double cabins. The minimum charter period is for 7 nights, usually from Saturdays to Saturdays; we encourage you to charter for a longer period for increased pleasure.

Meals
You may choose either to buy your own grocery and prepare your meals with the help of other passengers, or let your hosts do the cooking by buying an all inclusive package (not included).

Life aboard
Your own private floating hotel will take you to many interesting islands and your crew will act as expert guides, sharing their knowledge of the sea with you freely. You can plan your trip in advance or take each day as it comes. Do not expect to sail after dark for security reasons.

There are many marinas in our cruising areas, but boaters prefer to use the numerous anchorages located in bays or between islands; their choice for the day or the night depends on factors such as wind direction, passengers preferences, etc. In general, these places are calm and ideal for water sports.

What about the activity program during your cruise?

· Sailing cruises with several stops and moments of rest are part of each nautical vacation; it is time to learn basic navigation techniques, practice manoeuvres or complete your sailing knowledge. The skipper will be pleased to let you take the helm if you'd like to.

· Sunbathing, snorkelling, swimming, underwater photography, fishing and sea life observation are a must. Everyone, including non swimmers (wearing floatation devices), enjoys the crystal-clear waters and the many coral reefs and tropical fishes. Visit the countless uncrowned beaches and private coves where you can have a picnic lunch not far from the boat.

· Shopping, islands discovery, touristic excursions and sightseeing and even access to casinos and restaurants are possible on land during your cruise. Most sailing will be but brief interludes between one activity and the next, as there is always something to do; you will have plenty of time to lie back and relax each day.

· Reading, relaxing, music, gastronomy; bring your own favourite CDs to appreciate your vacation even more! After the day's activities are over, you can enjoy your dinner on deck while watching a spectacular sunset or dine below in a more formal setting. You will find that it is possible to prepare amazing dishes from the small galley. Good food, good drinks and good company are all part of cruising
