Boat Hire

2 weeks till im sat beside my fav lake in the world. While where away we celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary,id love to hire a boat,have alittle cruise,then for a couple of hrs and have a little picnic opposite Villa Balbianello.Where staying in Mezzegra,and would like to know of hire companies near this area of the lake. Iv had contact with a company in Dongo,but have been told it would take me 40mins to get back to where id like to spend the afternoon.Basically i need a hire company near Mezzegra/Tremezzo,i havent got a license,but would still like a nice boat(the one in Dongo was a Key Largo,looked nice).Any help would be great.

Try Matteri (info@matteri.com) or Mostes (info@cantieriamostes.it) in Lezzeno across the way. Alternatively, ask your hotel if there are any companies they recommend in Mezzegra/Tremezzo. I could swear there's a place right near Hotel La Darsena in Tremezzo (whose name of course I can't remember for the life of me), but I'm not sure if they rent or just run a taxi service.

There is a rental outfit in Dongo, Rent-A-Boat. Evidently boats under about 35 horsepower can be rented with just a driver's license (no skipper's license required). I don't know if you have to have an Italian drivers license.

I have seen a hire boat tied up in fornt of Villa Carlotta. It looks to be an eight or twelve passenger boat, so it would be $ (er euros). There also is a hire boat at Menaggio. But it is a small cabin cruiser with some big, big engines ($$).

I reckon you want a simple boat to drive yourself, and in this case most of the adress signaled are fine. If instead you think about knocking out your wife hiring a daycruiser with skipper I know very well a lady that is a famous wedding planner who has a luxury boat on the lake and as far as I know she can arrange private dinners also on board (I've been on the boat with her a couple of times). Check www.cinquevie.com or email info@cinquevie.com to ask if she still does this kind of things.
