Some people even take the next step and buy a boat after having so many wonderful memories created whilst chartering yachts. We are based here in the sunny Algarve which is the perfect destination for a holiday boasting over 300 days of sunshine per year and a stunning coastline best enjoyed from the comfort of a yacht.Vilamoura in the very heart of the Algarve is the top location for yacht charters, boat trips and for buying a yacht in Portugal.

The question then, whether chartering a boat or buying a boat, is how to decide which boat is best for you? There are many makes and types of boats, far too many to list here, but we can try to guide you on the first steps of the journey. Indeed one of the first steps when buying a yacht should be chartering a yacht, be it in the Algarve or anywhere in the world. Chartering a yacht is the best way to get a feel for the different experiences, advantages and disadvantages of each option.

When you decide to hire a yacht, by the hour or by the day, it is important to understand which type of yacht is perfect for your group and the occasion. One of the first decisions is whether to go for a sailing yacht or opt for a motor cruiser or powerboat.

Motor Cruiser

A motorboat, speedboat, or powerboat is simply a boat that is powered by an engine. This is the main or sole source of propulsion. In some cases the motorboats are fitted with inboard engines, others have an outboard motor installed on the rear which would contain the internal combustion engine, the gearbox and the propeller in one compact and portable unit.

Motor Cruisers vary greatly in type and size from 4 meter open centre console type boats through to ocean crossing mega and super yachts. Super yachts are like floating palaces and are an amazingly immersive world totally apart from everywhere else.

Super Yachts can be chartered from Vilamoura Marina, or from a range of destinations across Portugal, Spain and into the Mediterranean.  Vilamoura has a selection of companies selling and buying Super yachts that can offer advice and assistance from the early stages through to the day your super yacht is delivered. Contact us for our Super Yacht recommendations.


Sailing Yachts

A Sailing Yacht by definition uses wind driven sails as the primary means of propulsion. Sailing Yachts range in size from 3 metres again up to super yacht sizes. the most common bracket would be between 9 and 15 metres. 

Sailing Yachts are available for private hire across the Algarve, Portugal, Spain and the Mediterranean.  Sailing yachts for sale or to buy can also be found through out the area and Vilamoura in the central Algarve is a hub for charters and sales alike. Sailing Yachts are more work to manage but bring you so much closer to nature and the elements. Sailing holidays are growing in popularity and are a fantastic way to enjoy time with the family or loved ones.
