Italy is a truly spectacular yacht charter destination. From the Tuscan Archipelago through the Pontine Islands out of Rome,the Gulf of Naples, Amalfi and Cilento Coasts, the Aeolian Islands south to Sicily, and last but not least the sailing mecca of Sardinia, all these places are famous for their spectacular scenery, fascinating history, traditional cultures and of course delicious cuisines.
A sailboat vacation is undoubtedly the very best way to explore Italy's coastal towns and islands, moving freely and independently from one unforgettable place to another and experiencing something different every day.
Around Italy, arranging a bareboat charter is quite straightforward for the suitably-able sailor. Alternatively, consider taking aboard a skipper, who will be responsible for your yacht as well as providing your meals. You can even take a cook along if you seek the ultimate holiday. Even experienced sailors often prefer to hire a crew, carefully chosen by us in consultation with our operators. These people not only take care of all the work, they are your local guides too. It's fun to live like the locals for a bit, eating, shopping and being entertained as they do. With the help and local knowledge of your crew, enjoy the very best in holiday experiences that may otherwise be missed.
With native Italian-speaking staff aboard, we have special knowledge of this amazing charter boat destination. We'd love to talk to you about your Italian sailing holiday plans.
Our client reviews about charter sailing in Italy
Rating: 5 / 5 Lipari was a great spot to stop with a nice town to explore. But the nicest island I found was Panarea. Less tourists with very friendly locals. James, Australia, Jul 22nd, 2018
Rating: 4 / 5 The Aeolian islands are a beautiful part of the world with many highlights. The standout was watching Stromboli erupt at night from nearby offshore. Russell, Australia, Jul 16th, 2018
Rating: 5 / 5 Bonifacio is out of this world. The Maddalenas were a little light on history, but they are not sold as that., so its OK Tim, New Zealand, Jul 10th, 2018
Just a quick note to say we had a fabulous holiday and fantastic charter. The boat was perfect and the skipper Salvo and hostess Lucia were excellent could not fault anything.
Salvo took us to some amazing places, always had our comfort and safety in mind, and was a lovely guy, Lucia was an amazing cook we ended up having most of our meals on board she was so good, also great company and very friendly and helpful. Everyone at North Sardinia Sail were also helpful and very friendly. Tony, Australia, Aug 31st, 2016
