Rent a Motor Boat for A Day | Get Your Dream Sailo Yacht Charter Near You

How to prepare for your day on a Sailo motor yacht charter?

Are you ready for an amazing experience on the water? Whether it’s your first time on a boat or you’re already an experienced boating enthusiast, a checklist of essentials is always useful to get you prepared for a day trip aboard a motorboat.

  • Keep it simple
    Wear clothing you don’t mind getting wet and pack a small bag. Packing light and simple is the key to enjoy your time on the water when you rent a Sailo motor boat for a day!
  • Be smart about your outfit and shoes onboard
    Choose dry fit clothes, shorts, bring a windbreaker or even a jacket, especially if you go out at sunrise, and ideally wear a pair of boat shoes! A spare swimming suit is also recommended. Last but not least - do not forget your sunglasses!
  • Stay hydrated, energized and protected from the sun
    Pack sunscreen and a sun hat. Between the sun exposure and swimming or snorkeling, it’s easy to get dehydrated, so remind yourself to drink sufficient amounts of water during the day. Don’t forget you need to eat! Protein bars, trail mix and dry fruit are great for day trips on the water. If you have a sensitive stomach, bring medication against sea sickness, and take it before you get on the boat.

How much does it cost to rent a motor boat for a day?

Day rentals (2,4, or 8hrs) are perfect when you want to surprise your family or friends with a city sightseeing tour from the water, a breathtaking sunset cruise or a full day of fun in the sun! Your final budget for a motor yacht charter depends primarily on location, day of the week as sometimes the boat owners set different, higher prices for weekends and holidays, the size of the boat, and if it’s captained or you’ll be driving it yourself. Make sure to always reach out to the boat owner via Sailo (use the “Message Owner” button on the boat page to start a direct conversation) and ask all the details you need before you decide to rent a motor boat for a day.

In the US, motor boat rentals are very popular in South Florida (Miami and Fort Lauderdale) and California (Los Angeles). Prices are usually higher in Miami, especially in high-season (during winter months). You may however find great affordable rentals in Miami starting from $400/day, and also exquisite yacht charters with captain and crew included that may start from $15,000/day (service fee and mandatory extras are not included).
