The cost to rent a boat per day will vary from $350 on the low end to $30,000+ for super yachts on the high end.These prices are not set in stone and can vary massively.
Boat size/make,location and availability are the major causes for price differences.
Below, we'll have a look at some boat and yacht rentals to give you idea of what you can get.
One pro tip is to never rent per hour as this will generally work out as the most expensive option. It's usually cheaper to rent per day or per week. (in most cases, there are exceptions)
As mentioned above, location plays a role in the price of rentals. Miami for example is one of the most expensive places in America to charter any boat.
This doesn't mean you can't find bargains though. Some of the pontoon boats or fishing boat rentals can be cheaper. Heck, if you have a birthday coming up or know someone celebrating, you can sometimes grab birthday party boat rentals for good prices too.
