One of the pleasures of a bareboat Mediterranean yacht charter is the rich diversity of destinations. The Moorings has 11 charter marinas throughout the region, delivering a Mediterranean sailing vacation to suit virtually any taste. Sailing itineraries in protected waters with short passages between stops, or itineraries with longer open-water crossings to remote islands and coastlines are both options. World-famous beaches, lively resorts, quiet fishing villages, secluded anchorages, and tantalizing cuisine are among the delights of a Mediterranean yacht charter.
The Isle of Capri, its name summons images of the Mediterranean, the storied history of the Greeks and Romans, the chic and sophisticated who routinely vacation there. The island is but one jewel in a chain extending off the southwest coast of Italy.

A Gocek sailing itinerary takes you to the stunningly beautiful turquoise waters of the Lycian Coast, its steep shores indented with numerous coves and bays, its pine-clad islands stretching east and west like emeralds on the shimmering blue of the Eastern Mediterranean Sea (see Gocek maps).

Bareboat sailing in Greece is the adventure of a lifetime. Cruising past ancient ruins, docking at picturesque towns, dropping anchor in secluded coves, and swimming at beachside resorts are just a few of the many pleasures. With four bases in Greece, the selection of destinations is wide, encompassing the Cyclades, Dodecanese, Sporades, and Ionian isles. A Greece yacht charter in the Aegean Sea offers exhilarating open-water passages, uninhabited islands, and chic resorts. The Ionians are sheltered and the Sporades are wooded, remote, and a world apart from bustling crowds.
