St Tropez


*Stuart rented the Stingher 606 from Saint-Tropez



"Been here multiple times. Probably one of the best deals to get such a new boat for 1100 euros for the half day. Office in Villefranche is a little hard to find the first time, it’s opposite the Welcome Hotel and up some steps. I also advise anyone else to hire a boat with a storage compartment, me and my family like to go pretty fast so the boat can get pretty wet! It’s good to have a place to put your bags with your valuables etc. The staff are always friendly and multilingual which is great for us.  One time this summer another customer even broke the fuel tank of the boat I was due to rent, and they found me an even better replacement for the same price for the next day, which was great. Altogether great place to rent a boat, use Easy Boat Booking if you’re on the French Riviera. "

*Michael and his family were on our brand new yacht PRIMATIST G53 from Beaulieu sur mer



"We're a  group of us girls and we hired a boat for the day in Nice from Easy Boat Booking. The day before, we were told that the weather was too bad for the rental and that we could either be refunded or postpone to another day. They were so helpful and went out of their way to make sure that we managed to move the rental to another day. Fortunately we were in the area for a week, so we postponed it to the following day and had a fantastic day out visiting the sights and swimming. We even had a go on the Do’Nut which was brilliant fun (especially for families, my kids would have loved it!) The little office dog was so adorable, we wanted to take her home with us! Overall brilliant service and entirely worth the money for such a unique day out!"

"Easy Boat Booking were a great company to rent a boat with. Me and my friends were here on a stag do and had a day out on a brilliant brand new semi-rigid boat. I have a boat licence so we didn’t need to hire a skipper. The boat handled great and the staff were kind and informative. And they gave us a bottle of champagne to celebrate! Couldn’t really ask for much more. Would recommend. "
