The French shipyard launches an interesting initiative: through the website beneteaurent.com it’s possible to find a boat in the port you like and rent it. So far, it works in France.
Summer 2015 in France speaks beneteaurent.com. At the moment the locations are 17, not that many but still a good number as home harbors. We appreciate that a boatyard (a large one) decided to manage directly a renting service, as this could be the key to approach many potential boaters.
What is really surprising is the fact that we’re talking about motor boats. While it’s a common thing for sail boats, the specific rent of motor units could trigger a recovery for the sector, with the support from a leading shipyard. At the same time it’s an excellent opportunity to put into use a good number of new boats waiting for an owner.
Needless to say, the service beneteaurent.com works under the warranty of Beneteau dealers, and covers both the Med and the Atlantic Ocean, not forgetting Corsica.
Along the Mediterranean sea the locations are in Bandol, La Grande Motte and Leucate. Many more are on the Ocean’s coast, covering most of the Bretagne down to the Spanish corner in Arcachon.
Beneteaurent.com can count on a large choice of boats, according to the needs for your holiday. On the Med, the bigger part of the offer consists of Flyer day-cruisers, with the chance to rent them for a few hours or a weekend. On the Ocean, there’s larger boats, with cabins and berths, such as Antares 30 Fly or Monte Carlo 37 or 42 (the latter also for Corsica). Even the sport fishermen will have their pick, with the Barracuda models.
All the detailed infos are on the website, so it’s time to plan your next holiday in France and finally try what it means to be a boater.
