What yachts are available?
Sardinia Yacht – A Breath of New Life
SARDINIA, named after the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, promises the experience of a cruise & island getaway that people often imagine with the Mediterranean Sea.
Custom-built in Aberdeen, Hong Kong, Sardinia was first created as a part of a fleet of 4 yachts initially procured by One°15 Marina Club, back in 2007 when the marina was first launched.
Within her fleet, the Sardinia was a special edition, for she had been built with 2 engines instead of 1.
This meant that she was created with the ability to cruise the seas, while her “sisters” were built as houseboats–with only 1 engine for short trips or manoeuvring within the marina itself.

How many hours can I rent a yacht for?
The duration you can rent a yacht for is unique to each yacht, and dependent on availability.
You can plan for a short jaunt to a nearby island, or even for a staycation. If you wish to charter a yacht overnight, feel free to reach out to us.
Why should I rent a yacht instead of purchasing it myself?
While the thought of owning your own yacht may be appealing, there are several reasons why renting a boat from B.O.B Marine yacht rental may be a better option.
- For one, buying a yacht is a significant investment, and it can be quite expensive to maintain
- There are also costs associated with docking and storage, as well as fuel and crew expenses
- Additionally, you may only use your yacht for a few weeks out of the year, making it a costly investment that doesn’t offer much return
By renting a private yacht instead, you can save money while still enjoying all the benefits of yacht ownership.
Renting a yacht takes off the pressure of dealing with the logistics and all other technical things that take up your time and money.
Experience a stress-free trip by renting a yacht and enjoy exclusive benefits, such as:
- Privacy- When you charter a yacht, you are essentially renting your own private island. This is the perfect opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life and truly relax. You can choose to do as much or as little as you like, and you don’t have to stick to a strict schedule or itinerary.
- Build your own itinerary- One of the best things about chartering a yacht is that you can build your own itinerary. Whether you want to spend your days lounging on the deck or exploring new ports, you can tailor your trip to suit your needs. You can also take advantage of the expert knowledge of your crew, who can recommend the best places to go and the best things to see.
- Go at your own pace- Another great thing about chartering a yacht is that you can go at your own pace. There’s no need to rush from one activity to another, and you can easily change plans if you want to spend more time in one place or try something different. This is the perfect way to travel if you want to avoid crowded tourist traps and really experience a destination.
- Good friends or family- Chartering a yacht is also a great way to spend time with good friends or family. You can bond over shared experiences and create memories that will last a lifetime. What’s more, you don’t have to worry about finding a place to stay or dealing with logistics – everything will be taken care of for you. All you need to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself!
