7 Yacht Rentals In Singapore For A “Sea-cation” Or Boat Party

Yacht rentals in Singapore


Let’s face it – Singapore isn’t quite the first place that comes to mind when we think of island life. But look beyond the glossy CBD buildings and rows of HDBs and you’ll realise that there are some gorgeous Singapore islands and local beaches to satisfy that wanderlust while you await your next vacay. 

The best way to explore these in total comfort? A yacht, of course. Head out to sea with these yacht rentals for a quick getaway, where you’ll quite literally, be overseas.


1. Marine Bookings – BBQ grill & karaoke onboard


The 43-foot Advant Yacht by Marine Bookings has a massive upper open deck and comes complete with comfy bean bags so you can do what you do best: chill.

2. White Sails – Snorkelling & kayaking at Lazarus


We often associate snorkelling and kayaking with beach getaways in Phuket or Bali, but you can just as well do those activities in Singapore, from a private yacht, no less.

White Sails takes you to the picturesque island of Lazarus and its quiet beaches of powdery white sand. Snorkel in the deep blue or fit in some exercise aboard one of their 2 kayaks to explore the sweeping lagoon of the island. Bathroom and shower facilities are also provided on the yacht to clean up after!

3. Clipper Heritage – Stand-up paddleboards & inflatable water floats


The idea of simply sitting back and chilling suits some of us, but if you prefer your “yachtcation” to be jam-packed, wave goodbye to any semblance of a sedentary life with Clipper Heritage’s No Name One.

For now, other than lounging on their spacious decks or sippin’ on a drink in their expansive outdoor cockpits, you can head on up to the flybridge on the second level to enjoy 360-degree panoramic views of your surroundings as you sail around Singapore.

A fully air-conditioned interior with a lounge, kitchenette and wine cellar will also be waiting indoors, should you decide it’s time to take a break from the sun.

Bonus: Trident Marine Asia’s Jolly Buddy – Self-driving bareboats


Okay, so technically this one’s not a yacht, but adventure lovers will swoon over this small but mighty bareboat.

Aptly named the Jolly Buddy, this monohull yacht can carry up to 7 people out to the open sea for as little as $250 half a day. It’s perfect for a day of fishing or island hopping. Just note that the boat doesn’t come with entertainment, but you’re free to bring food, drinks, and your pets.

How much does it cost to rent a yacht in Singapore?


But first, let’s get down to business on the question that’s on everyone’s mind. Yacht rentals in Singapore aren’t as expensive as they seem – at least, not if you’re going in a group. Renting a private yacht for the day costs between $599 and $3,000 upwards. The cost usually depends on the type of yacht, services, facilities, and activities that are included.

We know what you’re thinking now – how much does a yacht party cost in Singapore? Pretty much the same as above. All you need to do is check if the package you’re signing up for comes with food, beverages, and entertainment such as a sound system or water sports equipment. 

In any case, most yacht rental companies either allow you to bring your own food and music, or provide catering as an add-on. 


How to rent a yacht in Singapore?


It’s relatively easy to rent a yacht in Singapore. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t necessarily need to be a member of a yacht club nor have affluent connections in order to rent one. Most yacht rental companies allow you to make bookings on their website – just like how you would with a hotel or flight. 


What facilities are available on the yacht?


Most yachts listed here are decked out in modern day comforts such as air-conditioned cabins, kitchenette, living areas, and ensuite restrooms. Some have shower facilities as well – a perk that’ll serve you well if you plan to stop at an island and jump into the water.

Many yacht charters also provide onboard entertainment such as kayaks, water mattresses, and stand-up paddleboards. Some are able to provide barbecue facilities for you to DIY your own meal, too. 


Treat yourself to a yacht trip in Singapore
