Featured yachts for charter on the French Riviera


Motor Yacht REHAB – Top Day Charter Pick

The Sunseeker Predator 68 has been our most popular yacht for day charters this month and deservedly so. This motor yacht always has positive feedback from clients, whether for a day rental (from 3500€ plus VAT & expenses) or a week charter (from 21,000€). This 21m yacht boasts space for 4 people to sleep in 2 spacious cabins, both with en-suites and TVs. There is a large saloon with Internet and Sky television facilities, and the alfresco dining area (seating up to 12) conveniently transforms into a sunbathing area meaning there is something to suit everyone! The Irish captain and English stewardess go out of their way to ensure you have an amazing time on the water, and are key to this yacht’s success. REHAB is based in Antibes but can pick guests up from most ports on the Riviera, with no delivery fees, saving you money on your luxurious day yacht charter. REHAB also comes equipped with its own tender and, if you fancy getting out on the water, there are water skis, donuts, a wake board, and snorkelling gear, all on board! A high-performance and luxurious yacht, REHAB brings in repeat clients who return every year, what more of a recommendation could you need?

Day boat – Motor Boat Prestige 34 – fuel and skipper included!

This motor boat is an absolute steal at 2000€ a day, or 1400€ for a half day, with fuel and a skipper included, and as a previous client has testified: “the boat is magnificent! Words fail us.” The classic style is combined with a sport-top and good alfresco space. 10 guests can be easily welcomed on board, making this boat a perfect fun day boat choice. Considering its size (10 metres) there is plenty of space to entertain: a double bench seat at the helm, a large saloon seating area, a vast sundeck, and a beautiful stern platform. With a cruising speed of 25 knots and a maximum speed of 35 knots, you can whizz up and down the French Riviera to your heart’s content. Home port: Villefranche sur Mer. For the last two seasons, the Prestige 34 has been one of the most popular choices of smaller motor boats for day charters, and with good reason.

Motor Yacht La Bellini – a new yacht

Sunseeker Predator 64 La Bellini is a new yacht for 212 Yachts this year, so we had to pop down to the yacht’s home port in Juan les Pins to check it out. We wanted to ensure it met our standards so that we could offer our clients a super day or holiday on the water. Safe to say, we were more than impressed with this 20 metre yacht and its crew.  At 4000€ a day and 24,000€ a week (plus VAT & expenses) we hope you will be blown away with motor yacht La Bellini, too. During the Cannes Lions Festival, one of our clients hired this yacht for a day to entertain guests and what a way to do it. This spacious yacht can accommodate 12 people, with 6 of them sleeping (2 double cabins and one twin). You can choose to entertain in the secluded saloon, or out on the spacious deck. The captain and steward will do their utmost to welcome you, including a VIP welcome package offering a complimentary bottle of champagne, a fruit basket, soft drinks and towels. Alternatively, we propose a pick up from Cannes, then lunch in St Tropez at Club 55 for some celeb-spotting… and then see where the afternoon takes you! La Bellini comes with its own tender, so jumping off to visit the sights is easy. The French Riviera coastline is waiting to be discovered from motor yacht La Bellini.

Rivarama 44 – for something classic

The Rivarama 44 is perfect for those who fancy something a bit classic, a bit classy, a bit traditional. However, she has a very sexy modern twist. At 13.4 metres, suitable for 10 guests, she charters from 2800€ per day. She also features a tasteful cabin, if you want to rest or freshen up after a great day on the water.

VanDutch 40 – a unique day yacht

If you fancy something a bit different, and something that will definitely turn heads, look no further than a VanDutch. The VanDutch 40 comes in a range of colours, and measures 12.08m. She can hold 10 passengers, sleeps 2 and comes with a captain included. Fully equipped bathroom with shower, toilets, sink, and the boat also has air conditioning. Included also are a radio, CD, DVD player and flat screen TV, iPod charger, exterior table, cooker, sink, fridges, sun bed, and cockpit shower. Phew.

These were our favourite yachts for June 2014 and are quickly booking up for July and August, too. Our clients loved them and have given top class feedback, that’s why they have made it to this list!
