As we told you, these boats are very popular to make trips. Thats why we can´t rent boats as long you want to use them as your flat in Luxor. If you have rented the boat and then some guests would like to make a trip, you would have to clear the boat – which would be a problem for you. So if you like to stay on such a boat as your home, we only can sell it to you, not rent. But of course any time you can rent such a boat for making a trip. Our offers and prices for trips you find on our webpage in a different area under “https://luxor-rent-and-sale.com/tourism/mode-of-transport/“ under the point “Luxury class ship”.
