Yacht Charter in France


France is without a doubt the most popular tourist destination in the whole world, surpassing most other countries only because it has such a wide variety of attractions and different kinds of activities so there's a probability that if like something the French have it. The landscape, the culture, the history, the art, the cuisine and the people make up an irresistible combination that translates into a most appealing destination for yacht charter.

Among the most loved destinations is Paris which is undoubtedly the best known and most loved city in the world, with a long history and a myriad of landmarks that appear on any tourist's "to see" list. Millions of people come here every year, whether for work or for pleasure and sometimes both.

Especially popular with the yacht charter crowds in France has to be the Cote d'Azur, a reference to the color of the Mediterranean by the French shores. It runs from the town of Menton near the Italian border all the way to Hyeres in Western France. Its popularity grew constantly from the 18th century when British and Russian tourists turned it into their favorite health resort. Today, it's not only a playground for the rich and famous, it's also a top destination for sailors who want to experience the beauty of the French shores.

Since yacht charter in France is a widely spread activity, you'll find many resorts of world-wide fame where you can have a wonderful vacation. Places like this are Monte Carlo, Saint Tropez and Cannes though they're also on the pricy side. For a cheaper alternative try Nice, Marseille or Hyeres.

Please take into consideration the fact that sailing has a long history in France and is widely popular, and because of that there are a lot of boats riding the French shores at any time, both foreign crafts and yacht charters from France. Pleasure boats in particular are numerous in this part of the Mediterranean as anyone can see them moored in endless rows in various marinas. With so many vessels and so many skippers out there, both local and foreign, a set of rules and regulations is needed in order to keep things under control.

Officially, there are two types of sailing in France: sailing on the open waters and sailing on inland waters (on one of France's numerous canals and rivers which run the length of the country). For each type there is a specific type of license which can be obtained locally. When it comes to boats driven by an engine with a bigger output of 6 horsepower, French law dictates that you hold a license: la "carte du mer" (sea license), le "permis mer cotier" (coastal license) and le "permis mer hauturier" (deep sea license), depending on where the skipper will be sailing.

For those who use services a temporary license (Carte Plaisance) can be issued for a predetermined period of time by the company hiring you the boat. If your family wants to get in on the action, there is even a Junior option to the Carte Plaisance given to young skippers between the ages of 14 and 16. If you have obtained your license in another country, make sure it is recognized by the French authorities. Once that is out of the way, all you have to do is choose a yacht and head out in the French Mediterranean.
