Yacht rent in Montenegro – vacation on the sea!

Rent a yacht (boat, catamaran) – this is primarily another quality of vacation in Montenegro! The reason is plenty of tourists have a rest in Montenegro during the season – official beaches are crowded, excursions are overcrowded, routes and all interesting places are teeming with tourists. Add to this the summer heat and … it turns out that you can return from a land excursion by far not always rested.


That is why renting a yacht, catamaran or boat can be an excellent alternative to traditional land recreation for many reasons. We will only give a few examples:

The sea is large and not as crowded as the seaside;

From the sea you will take in the view of Montenegro as you will never see it from anywhere else on the coast;

Some of the sights of Montenegro like the Kotor fortress, the island of the Virgin, the island of Mamula, the Blue Cave are better to get acquainted with from the sea;

No matter how hot the weather is, there is always the opportunity to stop and plunge into the sea;

In the high season, you do not feel packed like sardines only on wild beaches, where access is mainly by sea;

By renting a classic sailing yacht or a luxury motor yacht you can do a decent photoshoot that is sure to impress your friends and colleagues;

Renting a yacht or boat for an excursion along the coast is often not more expensive than land excursions in Montenegro with all the above advantages!


What you need to know before renting

When you are ready to rent a yacht in Montenegro, you need to settle the following points and give this information when booking:


1) The purpose of your trip? It can be a walk along the coast or a visit to a wild beach for one day. Or maybe you want to go on a voyage for a few days? Or maybe you are fond of fishing, want to go to the open sea to fish and return home with a valuable trophy?

2) When are you planning to rent a yacht? This is an important question because in high season all yachts and boats, catamarans and boats have practically every hour filled in advance. For your sea trip to take place and be accurately planned, it is better to book a yacht in advance as soon as this idea comes to mind, then you are able to choose the best time.

3) Where is it convenient for you to start your adventure from? Traditionally, most yachts and boats are moored in the marinas of Budva, Tivat and Kotor. This should be considered when planning a trip on a yacht.

4) How many people are expected to be on board? It is worth paying attention that the number of people depends on the selected vessel. Do you want to have a fun party on a big yacht or just enjoy the sea breeze in the group of close friends …

5) Do you prefer to rent a sailing or a motor yacht? Each option has its own strengths, which will be considered below.


Rent a sailing yacht or motor boat?

Rent a sailing yacht in Montenegro


1) Romance. Sailing boat is associated with the times of Ladies and Gentlemen, brave discoverers of new lands, exciting works of Jules Verne, brave and uncompromising heroes of those distant romantic times …

2) Noiselessness. Sailing, listening to sound of the wind, splashing of waves, creaking of sails and seagulls squawking… Only you and the sea! And no motor noise !!

3) Photo shoot under a white sail! What can be more sophisticated and cause more emotions than romantic-style photographs? Sea, coast, rigging of a sailing yacht, sailboat’s wheel and you – happy and tanned!

4) Unique experience. The opportunity to learn how to sail, raise / lower sails, knit sea knots, feel like a captain and a sailor-boy at the same time, and proudly say: “I went sailing!”.

5) Price. Renting a sailing yacht is cheaper than a motor yacht.



1) Dependence on the wind. But fortunately, many sailing yachts are equipped with a motor.

2) Fishing is impossible from sailing yachts.


Rent a motor yacht in Montenegro


1) Power and speed. If you like to cut the sea with the wind in your face, feel the power of hundreds of horsepower in a steel edition – a high-speed motor yacht is your choice.

2) Independence from the wind. Unlike a sailing yacht, a yacht with a “motor” can move in any direction and even in a flat calm sea.

3) Photo shoot in a modern style. The sophisticated contours of a modern motor yacht organically complement the beauty of a tanned half-naked body and serves as an excellent background for a memorable photo shoot.


4) Experience in steering a high-speed yacht. Feeling the drive of controlling a powerful mechanism and racing through the waves against the force of nature is a worthy experience for real men and … women! It will undoubtedly be an enjoyable experience.

5) Sea fishing from a motor yacht. We go to the open sea, find the place and fish for our pleasure. With sailing yachts, we’re not supposed to fish from them!




1) The noise of the motor.

2) Restriction of staying in the high seas with fuel supply.

3) Higher rental cost comparing to a sailing boat.

2) Waves are not as big in the bay as in the open sea, and the issue of motion sickness is close to zero.

3) The opportunity to see at close range one of the ocean liners which often visit the Bay of Kotor so that their passengers could wander through the old streets of Kotor.

4) The opportunity to taste fresh-caught mussels and fish as a gastronomic bonus to the bewitching beauties of this boat trip.

Rent a catamaran in Montenegro

What makes it different from a yacht?

1) Unlike a single-hull yacht, a catamaran is more stable on water – it practically does not lurch in a side wind. This increases the safety and comfort of a boat trip on a catamaran – passengers get less seasick in the open sea, bottles and dishes do not fly around the deck. Due to its design, the catamaran is almost unsinkable, which is especially important when navigating in the high seas.

2) A small draught of the catamaran hull allows you to approach closer to the shore in shallow water, which can be very useful when visiting wild beaches.

3) More comfort. A catamaran is like a small house on the water – it has more cabins, wider decks, a longer cockpit (tailgate), more space, and therefore comfort.

4) Improved navigation. After sustainability, this is probably the main advantage over single-hull yachts. On average, a catamaran can reach a speed 25% higher than an ordinary yacht with similar characteristics, and with a maximum tailwind it can reach up to 100%, which means it can go almost 2 times faster! This is an undeniable advantage for long transitions.
