How much does it cost to rent a boat in Capri?

Capri is a very popular tourist and sailing destination in Italy. While the rest of Italy is extremely affordable, a boat hire in Capri can be a little bit pricier.

Rent a speedboat in Capri

Pros of renting a speedboat in Capri

Rent a motorboat in Capri

Pros of renting a motorboat in Capri

Charter a motorboat in Capri if you want to explore all the stunning beaches you can find scattered all over the island and that you can best reach by boat. Motorboats have a shallow draft, making them the ideal water vehicles to reach these scenic spots. It is safe to drive closer to the shore and to explore all the natural beauty of Capri from up close.

A motorboat rental in Capri is also perfect for anyone who needs to get from one place to the other very quickly or someone who has a very limited amount of time available to see everything they want to see. You can even discover places beyond Capri - head over to the Amalfi coast or Sicily for some extra fun adventures.

Cons of renting a motorboat in Capri

One of the downsides of a motorboat charter in Capri is the fact that motorboats only run on fuel. This means that you have less flexibility than with other types of boats. You always need to ensure leaving the marinas with a full tank and arriving back there in time to refuel. This doesn’t just make motorboats less flexible, it also makes them more expensive.

Another downside that you should consider when choosing to rent a motorboat in Capri is the fact that the noise of the engine can be quite loud. This could make undisturbed conversations on board a little bit more difficult.

Those who come from outside of the EU need to check if their licences fulfill the requirements of an Italian licence.
