Nice idea to leave and find yourself in the middle of the sea and enjoy the time that passes lulled by the waves, but who knows how much it costs to rent a catamaran for a holiday in Sardinia? This is the real question that everyone asks themselves when it comes to a sailing holiday.
The boat holiday is often associated with luxury, something out of budget for standard holidays or designed according to old criteria. In some cases this is true, but this is not always the case. In fact, many are discovering a new way of ‘doing’ vacation. Reshuffling the cards in play and in the end you perceive what can really give a boat experience. In short, maybe you pay to have much more from a simple holiday.
The cost of a holiday in general depends on many items. There is no single reference price.
A week-long cruise on New Year’s Eve will definitely cost more than a weekend in the mountains in spring. This is obvious, but then these prices?
The most correct answer would be “it depends”. But we want to write this article that talks about costs and therefore also give numbers.
Obvious indicative numbers but that well represent how much a boat holiday can cost.
Here’s what to consider when making a quote to rent a boat:
So let’s make a hypothesis and try to calculate how much a week on the boat costs in summer in Sardinia. In order to give some figures we take as a reference the catamaran rental.
Remember that when you make comparisons of multiple quotes you have to evaluate the equipment of the boat, the spaces, what is included such as insurance, water toys, … and what is obviously excluded from the rental. But here are some reference numbers for renting a catamaran
The cheapest (and most beautiful) way to spend the night is to sleep in the harbor: remember rada = zero cost. When you want to spend the evening ashore or if the captain decides that it is safer, you will need to pay for the mooring. At the buoy you start from 15-20.00 €, in marinas it depends on where you are: from 40.00 € upwards (multiply by 4 or 5 in famous and renowned locations).
To eat, consider a week’s shopping as you would at home. It’s up to you to treat yourself to something more or something less. From our experience we can tell you that the aperitifs that are made on the boat at every opportunity, but even in this case everything is subjective. Eating at the restaurant is at your discretion.
Usually with the rental you bring back the boat with a full tank, as they delivered it to you.
It is trivial to say, but one item to consider is the journey to get to the port of embarkation. A departure close to home allows you to greatly lower the budget allocated to the holiday.
Is there a low cost boat holiday? The answer is yes. Here are some suggestions.
Book very early, taking advantage of earlybird discounts. This is really the only way to save, and a lot, on the cost of boat rental, as well as having the great advantage of choosing the type of boat that best meets your expectations.
