Owning a honeymoon boat rental business is a great way to combine a passion for water and weddings. Honeymoon boat rentals provide a type of romantic intimacy not found in large resorts or hotels. Most boat rental businesses open with one craft and grow into a fleet with the possible exception of houseboats. Read on to learn more about boat rental honeymoon business.

Things to Consider

Decide on the type of experiences you would like to offer your honeymooners. Define in advance if your boat rental business will offer all-inclusive extras such as crewed charters and catering services or will it be strictly alone time for the newlyweds. Offer a variety of packages and pricing options such as per day or by the week.

Ensure that your business provides the proper insurance, equipment, local boat authority compliance and licenses for safe operations. Determine limits on where your boat rentals may go and if they may enter international waters.


Honeymooners may sail into the sunset aboard a sailboat charter. One of the most distinctive features of a sail boat is the configuration of the sails and masts and includes iconic classics such as schooner, ketch, sloop or cutter.

Depending on the size and type of sailboat, the crew required to operate the vessel may consist solely of the couple or more as needed. The sails help with propulsion by wind speed, some sail boats offer power motor options. Sailboats come in three hull types: monohull, catamaran and trimaran.

Yacht Charters

Cruising the sea in your own private yacht is a honeymoon dream-come-true for the ocean-loving newlywed couple. Boat rental businesses may offer yachts in different sizes. As a rule, yachts measure 33 feet or larger and include the cabin cruiser, a type of luxury vessel measuring around 39 – 98 feet, superyachts measuring approximately 98 – 164 feet and megayachts, ships over 164 feet. Yachts may feature sails or power engines or both.

Offer yacht amenities such as luxurious furnishings and sleeping quarters, chef, wait staff, bartender, masseuse, gourmet food pantries, air-conditioning, showers, bathrooms, deluxe electronics, satellite services and full kitchens. Luxury perks may involve jet skis, helicopters, cinemas, pool, hot tub, putting greens, over-the-top master suites, basketball courts and on-board spa services.


Houseboats are similar to bed-and-breakfasts, they may be motorized or moored yet either way, they provide scenic views. You will find houseboats in more gentle water such as lakes or inland waterways. Houseboats function much like a home-on-the- water featuring bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and dining areas.

Offer romantic extras for your honeymoon boat rental business such as complimentary champagne, fresh flowers and strawberries dipped in chocolate.
