Chartering a yacht in Elba

Ben Bayliss has been the Captain of Superyacht Giorgia, a Benetti Classic, since it's launch in 2009. Recently Charterfleet.com caught up with him and asked him to discuss one of his favourite places to sail.
His reply: Elba – a yacht charter in the Italian Riviera.

Why charter a yacht in Elba?

In his article, Ben points out the charms of the island including being able to find secluded white sandy beaches and quiet harbours.

"There are three huge bays and many other smaller, private ones. So depending on what the charterer wants, I can make a decision where to go. For secluded beaches, I take them by tender to a smaller, less crowded beach and for something with a little more life then we have the choice of either Biodola Bay, Procchio or Viticcio. Each, infact all of the bays on the island, offer picture perfect beaches – of course in the summer these can become very busy."

He continues on to discuss the best times to visit, what to see and his recommendations for yacht charter guests. To get the true flavour of Elba Island, read his article in it's entirety on charterfleet.com.
