What is a recreational boat?

Before delving into the subject, let’s start with the simplest of things, explaining what a pleasure boat is. In simple terms, a pleasure boat is any type of vessel used for entertainment and pleasure purposes.

According to the Spanish Ministry’s website, in Spain, recreational vessels are considered to be those of all types, regardless of the means of propulsion, with a hull length between 2.5 and 24 meters, designed and intended for recreational and sporting purposes, and carrying no more than 12 passengers. If their size is greater than 24 meters, they are considered recreational vessels.

What type of pleasure boat is right for you?

Your choice of boat depends on your personal preferences, your budget and the type of activity you’d like to do on the water. Are you a speed lover? Do you prefer comfort and luxury?

The world of recreational boating is diverse and exciting, with options for all tastes and needs. The type of boat depends on its size, from small motor boats and sailboats to luxurious yachts, there is a boat suitable for every type of boater, whether you are a fishing enthusiast, a lover of the sun and sea, or simply someone looking to unwind and relax.

What do you need for your new adventure?

Before setting sail it is important to make sure you are prepared for it. This includes familiarizing yourself with the rules of navigation and also with your boat.

Make sure you have all the necessary safety equipment on board, you should also take into account the administrative documents that you have to process and prepare according to the current regulations, such as having a recreational boat insurance, the title of recreational boat master, etc.
