Renting a boat vs buying, which option is better?


When it comes to enjoying the sea and the coast, there are two main options: buy or rent a boat.

If you are considering the possibility of acquiring a boat, you must take into account all the associated costs and expenses. However, there is another option that can be just as satisfying without compromising your budget and with the advantage of being able to discover unique places such as the Maro-Cerro Gordo cliffs: boat rental, like the ones we have at Enjoy Boat.

Advantages of renting a boat

One of the main advantages of renting a boat at Enjoy Boat is the location of its fleet in Caleta de Vélez, Torre del Mar, Málaga. This strategic location will allow you to enjoy one of the most spectacular areas of the Malaga coast. The cliffs of Maro-Cerro Gordo are a unique natural setting that you cannot miss and that you can only see in all its splendor from the sea. In addition, thanks to the rental of a boat, you will be able to access coves and beaches that cannot be accessed by land, thus turning your experience into a unique adventure.

Another advantage to take into account is the low availability of moorings in all ports, especially those close to natural enclaves like ours. Often, the purchase of a boat is accompanied by the need for a mooring, which can be difficult to obtain and, consequently, very expensive. By renting a boat at Enjoy Boat, you will not have to worry about mooring, since you will be able to enjoy the boat for hours without having to moor it in a port.

The average annual price of mooring in Spanish ports for pleasure boats can vary significantly depending on the size of the boat and the location of the port. In general, ports located in the most touristic and popular areas tend to have higher prices than ports located in less crowded areas.

According to the data of the National Association of Nautical Companies (ANEN), the average annual mooring price in Spanish ports for a vessel of 8 meters in length is around 2,400 euros per year. However, the price can range from 1,500 euros per year for less touristy ports to 6,000 euros per year in some of the most popular ports.

It is important to keep in mind that the price of the mooring is not the only expense associated with owning a boat, but also the costs of maintenance, repairs, insurance, taxes and other additional expenses must be taken into account. Therefore, it is important to assess if owning a boat is an investment that fits our budget and lifestyle or if renting a boat is a more suitable option for us.

As you can see, when you rent a boat, you won't have to worry about all the costs and expenses associated with buying a boat, such as maintenance, repair, or insurance.

Disadvantages of renting a boat

However, there are also some disadvantages to boat rentals. One of the disadvantages is that you cannot customize the boat to your liking. If you buy your own boat, you can customize it according to your personal needs and tastes.

Another disadvantage is that you cannot use the boat whenever you want, since you will have to reserve it and depend on the availability of the fleet. At Enjoy Boat we have a large fleet so that this is not a disadvantage for you. You should also make sure that you are renting a boat from a reputable company, such as Enjoy Boat in Malaga, to avoid problems and enjoy a safe and fun experience.
