And also, it’s budget friendly: Sailboat renting in the British Virgin Islands starts with only 243 € on SamBoat.
And don’t worry. If these two options sound too extreme for you and you need something in between, an Oceanis 41 offers a solid compromise between price and luxury.
This sailboat has 3 cabins with all comfort and capacity for 8 people. With an overall length of 12 meters, it’ll be your best ally to spend an unforgettable vacation on the water in the surroundings of Road Town, the capital. You can rent one of these for 371 € on SamBoat—with or without a skipper.
And if you’re planning a whole weekend at sea or something more than day sailing, make sure you rent a sailboat with cabins, kitchens, and bathrooms.
