Italy Yacht Charters

Italy is a land of passion and romance, of history and culture, of beauty varied in its nature.

The volcanic Aeolian Islands rise in angular contrast to the more subdued but no less beautiful Emerald Coast of Sardinia. The picturesque Amalfi coast, near the Bay of Naples, is the essence of serenity and tradition. Bustling Palermo, in Sicily, boasts a uniquely scenic appeal, as do the outer islands off the Sicilian coast. With stunning, calm waters like Greece and charming towns to explore like Croatia, an Italy yacht charter offers a rich diversity in experiences, a sampling of the best in the Mediterranean.

Where can I sail in Italy? 

Sail the seas of mythical heroes and legendary stories from the helm of a bareboat charter from Procida and follow the string of islands each with their own secrets for you to discover. Start a new journey in Sardinia where 475 miles of sea stretch before you revealing an array of photo-worthy towns and harbors along the way. Aboard a Sicilian yacht charter, volcanoes, scenic anchorages, and pristine sailing await throughout the Aeolian Islands, where unspoiled wonder abounds.
