Rent a yacht in Italy: Sailing charter in Italy

Mild climatic conditions and diverse island landscapes invite you to sail in Italy. Small and charming towns for strolling alternate with beautiful beaches and lovely bays.  Hardly any other country is so well suited for unwinding and leaving everyday life behind.

Discover the beauty of Elba on a sailing trip

The small island of Elba is only a short distance from the Italian mainland and therefore an ideal port of departure for sailing trips. The landscape of the very green island is lovely and offers a variety of hidden bays and great beaches. Round the island in a week on your charter, Elba offers numerous possibilities for a week of sailing pleasure. Already in Portoferraio, the main town of the island, you can experience numerous cultural sights at the start of your holiday.

Discover our yachts and sailboats from Elba!

The smaller islands of Tuscany are also very popular with sailors. Visit the Tuscan Island of Capraia north of Elba and sail along the Italian mainland back to Elba and enjoy the charm of Tuscany. Old harbour towns with lively waterfront promenades as well as fantastic anchorages with crystal-clear water await you.

From Elba, you can also explore the famous Strait of Bonifacio and the La Magdalena Islands between Sardinia and the French island of Corsica. 

Sardinia, the Maddalena Archipelago, and the neighbouring French island of Corsica

Set off from Marina dell' Isola in the north-east of Sardinia and explore the sun-drenched Costa Smeralda. Bays with turquoise-blue water create a Caribbean feeling in the sailing area of Sardinia.  No matter in which direction you start, the possibilities here are sheer endless.

Both the south of Sardinia with its capital Cagliari, the city on seven hills, and the west with the Asinara National Park in the north, Sardinia is a very varied sailing area. The famous La Magdalena Islands are a highlight of any Sardinian cruise.

The diverse coastline of Sardinia and especially the Strait of Bonifacio, between Sardinia and Corsica, are popular photo motifs. The French island of Corsica is a popular place to visit on a cruise from Sardinia.  The town of Bonifacio on the southern tip has a large harbour and a magnificent view from the upper town. The town of Bonifacio towers breathtakingly high on the cliffs, and in good weather you can see as far as Sardinia and the offshore islands.

Discover the beautiful sailing area around Naples with a yacht charter

Sail from Castellammare di Stabia along the 50 km long Amalfi Coast of the Italian peninsula of Sorrento. In Positano, sailors are greeted by colourful houses built directly onto the rugged slopes. Steep steps and narrow alleys lead to small squares that reward the effort with incomparable views over the Amalfi Coast. The former fishing village is one of the most sought-after holiday destinations in Italy and can be reached ideally from the water on a charter from Castellammare.

Discover our yachts in the Gulf of Naples!

From Castellammare die Stabbia, it is possible to start a sailing trip to the volcanic islands of Procida and Ischia and Capri. Ischia is best known for its thermal baths and nature reserve. Beautiful churches, an aristocratic palace and the impressive library of the Abbey of San Michele Arcangelo can be visited on the island of Procida. Particularly beautiful and very popular with sailors is the island of Capri with the famous "Blue Grotto". 

When sailing on the Amalfi Coast, many famous historical sites and places such as Pompeii can be visited. The sailing area is characterised by barren rugged cliffs and beautiful lime groves. The famous Italian liqueur Limoncello originally comes from here.

Of course, Naples should not be missed on a yacht charter in Italy. Rich in sights and cultural offerings, this city is always worth a visit. The famous Neapolitan pizza alone is reason enough to rent a yacht in Italy and set sail for the Gulf of Naples.

Aeolian Islands and Sicily, sailing in the far south of Italy

Set off from Tropea at the tip of Italy's boot and discover the beauty of the Lipari Islands, as the Aeolian Islands of Lipari, Panarea, Vulcano, Salina and Stromboli are also known. Visit the volcanic island of Stromboli and perhaps even witness a natural spectacle when glowing lava from the still active volcano pours into the sea. Sicily is also not far from Tropea. Sicily is therefore easily included in the itinerary of your yacht charter.
