Poland Yacht Charter: Rent a Boat in Poland

Yacht Charters in Poland

Whilst Poland isn`t the first place that comes to mind when you think of avacation on a yacht, this country has a rich history of seafaring and a 500 km long coast that is lined with golden beaches, lighthouses, coastal resorts, sand dunes, and well-equipped marinas. ‘The Polish Riviera’ is a famous stretch of land that extends from the German border to the historic city, Gdansk. Also, ‘The Polish Riviera’ has been a flocking point for Germans, Russians, and Poles on vacation. Nowadays, this place also attracts tourists from all over the world.

If the Baltic Coast with its jewels of Gdansk, Sopot, and Kolobrzeg, along with the Leba Sand Dunes and Hel Peninsula, is the customary place for sailing then equally tempting is the opportunity to explore the unique natural beauty of Mazury (Masuria). This North Eastern province is situated near Warsaw and is the lake district of the country. Masuria offers one of best inland sailings in Europe, with more than 2000 lakes, which cover 52000 sq. kilometers and linked by the system of old canals. This wildlife-rich district is surrounded by forests and offers greatbird-watching and fishing opportunities as well as swimming, mountain biking, and kayaking. Watching the sunset over the beautiful lakes and grilling Polish kielbasa isa wonderful experience! In winter, many come to the Mazury Forice windsurfing and for ice-sailing in frozen water.

Wherever you go sailing in Poland pack a book or two by J. Conrad for your vacation. He is Poland’s most famous maritime person ever, even though he made his name by writing books in English, for example, “The Heart of Darkness.” Sailing trips in the service of the British and French Merchant Navy inspired him for writing novels “Nostromo” and “The Arrow of Gold.”

Despite the fact that Poland is the country with unspoiled natural beauty, hearty meat-orientated cuisine, low cost of yacht charters and boat hire, and incredibly welcoming locals, obviously the weather here is much less constant than in sunny Spain or in the Caribbean. Winters are bitterly cold and summers can be unexpectedly hot. Also, you’re never guaranteed that a trip will be without precipitation. The best months for vacation in Poland are from May to September.
