Can you rent a yacht in France – do I need a license?

Small boats (under a certain horsepower or length), electric boats, crewed yacht charters may not require a license. Larger boats or those with more powerful engines need a skipper’s license. Before you confirm your sailing trip to France, please send us a copy and we will check it for you. You need to have the original copies on board, so don’t forget to take them.
