Renting a boat or yacht in Singapore: All you need to know

By: Ashley Rogers

It might not be the first thing that comes to mind after a busy week in the city, but renting a boat in Singapore is surprisingly accessible. Getting a bunch of pals together and throwing a party on board is one cracking (and affordable) way to spend a Saturday afternoon, weaving through the ships and enjoying Sentosa’s fireworks as the sun comes down. There are also companies that whisk you away from Singapore and around other islands for a few days – imagine jumping aboard on a Friday evening and waking up off the coast of Thailand on Saturday morning. Fancy that? Thought you might – check out our shortlist of rental companies below and what to expect in terms of crews, catering, equipment and more.
