Since the Cannes Yachting Festival began earlier this week, many people can admire the many luxurious boats that are located within this city inside the French Riviera. Seeing such fancy yachts may cause you to want one of your own, but sadly, many of us cannot afford them due to the ridiculously high price tags that are usually attached to yachts. One company noticed this and decided to create something different for the everyday person to enjoy.
Enter GetMyBoat — a company that is touted as, "the world's largest boat rental and water experience marketplace." Founded in San Francisco back in 2013, their founders wanted to open up boating rentals of fancier boats or yachts to those that otherwise can't afford to buy one. Since its founding, GetMyBoat managed to climb upwards of 108 000 listings from 9300 destinations located in 184 countries.
For an event such as the Cannes Yachting Festival, there are plenty of rental options if you want to take part in this event instead of standing on the sidelines. Options such as the VanDutch 40 Motor Yacht Charter and the Bavaria-45 Sailboat Charter are on the cheaper side, while the Captained Charter on San Lorenzo 46 Power Mega Yacht will cost much more. You can rent boats for any number of days, with rates measured out on a day-to-day basis. When you go to rent a yacht, you can also input the number of guests you'll have, as well as whether you think you'll need a captain or not.
As cool as GetMyBoat's boat rental service is, they do much more than just that. They also offer sleep abroad and houseboat rentals if yachts aren't exactly your thing. In addition, you can try out the many water experiences they have, including (but not limited to) diving, fishing, and snorkeling. Such experiences are perfect for those looking for a new water-based adventure to try for their upcoming vacation.
