Dayboat On The French Riviera

5 Reasons To Charter A Dayboat On The French Riviera

The French Riviera is an incredible region that can be enjoyed year-round with a mild temperature. However, if you want to make the most of the best weather and stunning beaches, then time your yacht charter for April to September.  Here’s 5 reasons to charter a dayboat with Zephyr Yachting:


Without a doubt, chartering a dayboat gives you an exclusive option with complete privacy away from the tourist crush that usually exists along the Cote d’Azur in the peak summer months. Anchor in your preferred coves, swim where you want and relax on the aft deck as you enjoy the sea view and a glass of chilled rosé.

Choose a Skippered Charter

Opt for the ease of a Zephyr Yachting boat rental with a skipper, as there is the added advantage of your skipper having local knowledge about where to navigate and recommended places to see along the French Riviera coast.   We love the impressive setting of Plage Mala or anchoring off the Lérins Islands near Cannes – just a few of the many places you can visit on your French Riviera charter.

Diversity of experiences & activities

The French Riviera has diverse landscapes from the calanques of the Esterels to beautiful beaches near Pampelonne and St Tropez to the wild beauty inland of the Mercantour National Park. Ashore, you can explore the region’s hilltop villages, historical sites such as the Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild overlooking Villefranche-sur-Mer and St Jean-Cap-Ferrat, the Trophée d’Auguste at La Turbie or the Palais Princier in Monaco.

Year-round charter guests can experience the French Riviera’s events and festivals to their fullest, including the Nice Carnival, Menton’s famous Lemon Festival, Cannes Film Festival, Monaco Grand Prix and Nice Jazz Festival.

There are also plenty of shopping opportunities in the form of designer boutiques in Cannes and Monaco, food markets at Marché Forville (Cannes), Marché Provençal (Antibes) or Place d’Armes (Monaco) or local markets selling antiques, souvenirs and crafts.

Enjoy a sunset on the sea

Enjoy a serene sunset on the Cote d’Azur onboard a boat, where you have total freedom to cruise at your own pace. The Cote d’Azur is famously known as a place that attracted painters and artists throughout the years including Picasso, Matisse and Renoir who discovered the beauty of the most magical light of day here.

Special occasions

Renting a boat for a special event such as an anniversary, birthday or wedding party is a great option to elevate your occasion and provide the wow factor.

With Zephyr Yachting, you can rent a dayboat or luxury tender for every occasion. To find out more about chartering on the Cote d’Azur, please contact us to speak to our team of experts with in-depth knowledge of the region. Email: sales@zephyr-yachting.com
