Sign up and tell others about yourself and your sailing experience. And if you are a boat owner do list your boat.
You can search by location or by boat requirements, or just browse through the boat list and see all boats.
Get in touch with local boat owners to rent their boat or swap boats. Then just pack your bags and set sail!
Last January on to Australia. Included in the swap was a lovely waterside apartment, use of a car, bicycles and a sailboat. Our hosts were most gracious and awaited us with a sumptuous Aussie BBQ. After exploring the Broken Bay area, we set sail for Sydney and spent a week or so in Sydney Bay as guests of the Royal Cruising Club (sponsors of the Sydney-Hobart race) located close to downtown. Good sailing, warm weather, just a bit of rain now and then. Our hosts John and Marilyn have not come to San Francisco yet.
“What attracts me in Sailum is the fact that the boats you can rent are from private owners. As an experienced sailor I have rented boats all over the place, yet at a certain point you want something else, something that isn’t offered by regular renting companies. The boats registered at Sailum are very diverse and have a personal touch to them.”
“I really like the swapping concept. I own a boat in the UK and I thoroughly enjoy sailing here. This doesn’t leave me with much opportunities to sail in other places though, but swapping makes this possible in a very cost-efficient way. We did a swap with a Dutch family last summer. It was a fantastic holiday and on top we saved about 3000 Euros!”
Sailum is where sailors meet: Rent a real yacht from a local owner in a safe way, or swap your boat with a similar one in a dream location. It’s all possible!
The sailing resumes and the reviewing system on Sailum tell you who you’re dealing with. When you get in touch with a potential renter or boat owner, one click will show you their skills and reputation!
Reservations and payments for rent are made through Sailum to ensure safety. Swapping is currently free of charge. Details about renting, swapping and insurance can be found here
