Why it’s better to rent a boat instead

You’re lying to yourself if you say that you are not looking forward to summer. It’s the best season because you can do so many activities, with a high chance of having good weather. 

One of the most popular outdoor activities is sailing across the crystal blue waters. So here is why we suggest you rent a boat instead. 

You can share the cost

When it comes to buying a boat, it’ll have to be you that will have to pay for all the fees and bills that come with it. 

However, if you share a boat, even if it’s just for the day, you know you will be saving on half the price than you’d usually pay for when buying. 

You get to share great memories with your friends and can take turns on steering! It also works out cheaper even renting for the day. 

You don’t have to pay for parking spaces

When it comes to buying a boat, you also have to pay for its parking spot in a marina. This can be costly and in the end, you may even end up paying more for the spot than the actual boat itself. 

Whereas, with a rented boat you will have no worries for that. You can become a captain for the day and have no strings attached. 

You are spoilt for choice 

Another great thing about renting boats is that you are spoilt for choice. 

First, you get to choose which kind of boat you want to rent, such as a beautiful yacht and secondly, you get to choose how long you want to rent it for. 

Each summer you could be testing a new boat without any additional permanent fees. A great way to save and still enjoy your favourite hobby! 


The boat is seasonal

Why would you waste all of that money for a boat that will be sitting a parking spot 92% of the time? 

When sailing a boat, it is usually when there is Good sailing weather and that isn’t all year round. 

Usually, you will get the best weather in the summer, as we can imagine it can be hard to sail in the wintertime. So why waste money to sail for one or two seasons? 

They can lose value

When it comes to buying a boat, it is measured by the amount of hours you use it for, not the usage of miles. 

Eventually, the boat itself can lose its value over time. This can be hard if you ever want to sell it in the future. Also, if the boat does lose its value, it will be very expensive to upgrade. 

Think of it like buying the latest technology; the more developed the phone is, the harder it is for your old phone to stay at a good value. 

Why waste thousands on a boat that will eventually become irreparable, when you can just rent out a boat whenever you want?
