If you are looking for things to do in Marseille, why not spend your holidays on a sailboat, a motorboat or a catamaran? You will be able to explore exceptional places such as the Frioul archipelago and its famous fortress the Château d'If and visit the famous Calanques which are narrow, steep-walled inlet carved in limestone. If your boat rental on the Côte d’Azur lasts a week or more, you could sail towards the Îles de Porquerolles and Port-Cros at about 60 miles from Marseille. With
Beboats, you have the choice to charter a boat from a professional or private boat owner.
The La Pointe Rouge harbor in Marseille is located right at the gateway of the Calanques, making it the perfect place for your boat rental. On one side you have the Calanques, on the other side you have the Frioul archipelago with the legendary Château d'If and the Riou archipelago, reknown for its biodiversity.
With its 1200 berths, the harbor has many cheap motor boats you can rent for the day!
For an unforgettable start of your sailing holidays in the French Riviera, choose your boat rental in the Old Port of Marseille. Coming or going from Marseilles' Roadstead in a boat is simply magical: the view of the Old Port dominated by the 19th century church Notre Dame de la Garde, open to the fortification Fort Saint-Jean and the fascinating museum the MuCEM, is beautiful.
Located in front of the Old Port, the Frioul also has a marina linked by a boat shuttle from and to the Old Port. You will be able to find a wide range of yacht charter there, from luxury yachts to catamaran, to sailboat!
Quieter but with a wide range of catamarans, sailboats and motor boats, L’Estaque is a lovely alternative to the Old Port of Marseille. In a popular neighborhood full of traditions and history, L’Estaque is located 12 km away from the Old Port and has inspired many reknown artists such as Paul Cézanne.
Nested in the North of Marseille, the Corbieres harbor is a dry port meaning it can park boats outside sailing periods but it also has 320 berths, of which 20 welcome passing boats.
If it is your first yacht vacations in Marseille, we strongly advise you to visit the Calanques. The contrast between the white cliffs and the clear blue water is incredible. You will be able to enjoy unforgettable swimming in this beautiful setting. The Massif des Calanques stretches for 20 km from La Madrague to Cassis. You could drop anchor in many different moorings such as in the calanque of Callelongue, Sormiou, Morgiou or Port-Miou. Don’t hesitate! It is on a boat that you will make the best of the magnificent landscape that is the Calanques of Marseille. You could also start your sailing holidays from
Cassis, a traditional fishing village, for a more cozy and picturesque setting.
On a First 27.7 from Saint-Malo with a group of friends. Sailed around the Channel Islands, had a good navigation!
We loved the Baltic Sea in Danemark, especially when we arrived in Copenhagen with its colorful houses. But Sweden and its canals were even better. Had the best time on board of our Oceanis 411!
We were able to do a few quotations with the customer service to find the best boat for our destination. We went for a Lagoon 450, really comfy for the family!
