La Dolce Vita in Italy

The Amalfi Coast is Italy’s invitation to enjoy la dolce vita on board a luxury yacht and discover picturesque villages, classic Italian architecture, family-run restaurants and jaw-dropping scenery.

Located southeast of Naples, the Amalfi Coast is a stunning springboard for spectacular sailing holidays or leisurely day boat rentals in a romantic region perched vertically between the mountains and Tyrrhenian Sea.
One of the most popular Mediterranean destinations, start your Amalfi Coast yacht charter in the towns of Positano, Praiano or Amalfi. Lively Sorrento and the stunning islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, while not geographically part of the Amalfi Coast, are also popular for including on your southern Italy yacht charter.
Positano
Enjoy pleasant anchorages and beaches reached only by boat - our favourite picks are Arienzo beach, Duoglio Beach or the bay of Erchie between Cetara and Maiori.
When the sun goes down, Ristorante Franchino at Hotel Onda Verde in Praiano is perfect for an aperitivo or join the club atmosphere at Music on the Rocks in Positano or Africana Famous Club, set into natural caves in Praiano.
Don’t miss visiting any of the Saracen watchtowers along the coastline or wandering the cliffside villages in the shadow of laundry hanging amidst wisteria vines to buy Solimene ceramics, lemon products or pastries. Culture aficionados will appreciate time ashore to visit the beautiful Villa Rufolo and Villa Cimbrone in Ravello, or explore the historic sites of Pompeii, Herculaneum and Paestum.

Sardinia

Sardinia has wonderful options for charter guests where relaxing at some of the best beaches in the world or discovering a regional vineyard is equally possible; the rugged natural beauty of the Costa Smeralda is a great pairing with the towns of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo.
Chartering in Sardinia
Purpose-built by the Aga Khan and investors in the 1960s, the ultra-luxe town of Porto Cervo is bedecked with gourmet restaurants, high-end hotels and designer boutiques such as Bulgari, Louis Vuitton and Prada.
Porto Cervo
Celebrities, royalty and the superyacht set followed and today the coastline is a summer playground. Superyachts jostle for berths in Sardinia; book well ahead to appreciate the Mediterranean charm of this yacht charter hotspot.
Float at sea in the Maddalena Islands, go snorkelling in the Lavezzi Islands, party at Billionaire Club or soak up the sunshine at Spiaggia del Grande Pevero, Spiaggia Capriccioli or Spiaggia del Principe.
Whether you are seeking a relaxing family yacht charter or an adventurous charter holiday with friends, Sardinia offers endless options for both.
