Catamaran boat rental in Cannes | up to 15 guests

Finding a modern catamaran for a day charter during peak season on the French Riviera can be challenging, as most are only available for weekly rentals.

However, this luxurious Fountaine Pajot 45ft catamaran offers daily charters in the Cannes area, accommodating up to 15 guests plus a friendly crew of 3.

Flexible day charters, sunset cruises & fireworks viewing

What sets this comfortable catamaran apart is its unparalleled flexibility for your boat rental needs.

Not only is it ready for daily boat trip throughout the high season, but it is also perfect for a breathtaking sunset cruise around the Lerins Islands or for securing front row seats to the mesmerizing Cannes fireworks in July or August.

Booking process


Bad weather policy

We understand that weather can be unpredictable. To ensure your peace of mind, our contract includes a bad weather clause:

Cancellation and refund:

  • In the event of heavy rain or winds above Force 4 Beaufort on your charter day, the rental will be canceled and you’ll receive a full refund, minus any expenses incurred on your behalf (food, drinks, restaurant bookings, water toys).
  • If the weather is cloudy, lightly windy, or there is occasional rain, the charter will proceed as planned, and no refund will be issued.

Your enjoyment and safety are our top priorities, and we strive to provide a seamless experience even when Mother Nature doesn’t cooperate.


  • What is the smoking policy?
    Smoking is permitted only at anchor and on the aft swim platform.
  • Is your catamaran available for sunset cruises in Cannes?
    Cannes Sunset Catamaran Cruise: 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM, €1600
  • Can I sail from Cannes to Saint-Tropez or Monaco in a day?
    While our sailing catamarans offer comfort and luxury, they are not designed for high-speed travel. Day trips to Saint-Tropez or Monaco, while possible, would significantly limit your time at the destination due to the distance involved.
    We recommend exploring closer destinations such as the Lérins Islands, cap d’Antibes area and the wild coast of Esterel for a more enjoyable experience.
  • Can I board your catamaran in Antibes, Mandelieu, or Nice?
    Yes, with an additional delivery/redelivery fee for fuel.
  • Are towels provided?
    No, you’ll have to bring your towels.
  • Can I bring my own food and drinks on board?
    Yes, absolutely!
  • Do you offer catering services?
    Yes, you can order a menu and beverages to enhance your experience.
  • Is the Fountaine Pajot 45 a slow-sailing catamaran reliant on its engines?
    No, the Fountaine Pajot 45 is designed to sail well even without engine assistance. Watch the above video showcasing the Fountaine Pajot 45 under sail.
