Italy - Amalfi Coast Yacht Charters

La Dolce Vita!
Italy - Corsica & Sardinia Yacht Charters
The flair of southern France plus the historic charm of Italy blend into two unforgettable island getaways.

You can roll the dice in the bling bling port of Porto Cervo, get a quick archeology lesson on a guided tour of the ruins in Cagliari, or slip away for some peace and plenty in the moonlit Iles de Maddalena..
Italy - Sicily and the Aeolians Yacht Charters

Renowned for her active volcanoes, awe-inspiring landscapes and a rich and addictive cuisine, Italy’s southern main island - and her countless island treasures of volcanic origin – are one of the most distinctive corners of the Mediterranean.

Combining the historic and bustling ports of Sicily with a cruise to its offshore islands, the Aeolians, serves up the perfect blend of buzz and bask. Don’t miss the continuously spewing Stromboli.

The eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea is considered by many to be the most outstanding yachting destination in Europe. Ancient walled villages, cobalt blue waters and UNESCO world heritage sites dot Croatia’s mountainous Dalmatian Coast. With more than 1,100 islands to explore along a 1,000-mile coastline, Croatia is a powerhouse yacht charter destination with smiling English speaking locals, farm and sea to table cuisine, thriving nightlife, secluded coves, and world class wineries.

Greek Island Yacht Charters
Greece and her world-famous islands are the one yacht destination everyone on the planet dreams about. Thousands of islands, thousands of itineraries and endless attractions. You could sail in Greece for years on end and still not see it all. White-washed villas, vibrant bougainvillea covered hills, loud and proud locals, insanely beautiful waters and millennia upon millennia of history. This may well be the cradle of European civilization, and for yacht charter guests, still the most coveted prize of all.
Turkey Yacht Charters
Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is favored by seasoned sailors and all those who want to experience the fascinating fusion of East meets West. One of the fastest changing stretch of the whole Mediterranean, the Turkish Coast has gone from desolate and wild, to perpetually popular, in just a couple of short decades. Yet much of the wilderness remains, as do the thousand-year-old castles built on the beach and the relaxed and welcoming locals. Some call this the world’s largest open-air museum, and coupled with a delectable cuisine and some of the clearest waters in the Mediterranean, Turkey offers one of the most diverse yacht charter experiences in all of Europe.
Northern Europe Yacht Charters
For a change of pace, scenery, and cuisine, Northern Europe is the one place we urge everyone to visit, at least once. The choices are vast - the Baltic Sea and the coast of Sweden, Norway, and Scotland are all an adventure sailor’s dream. Or head to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean - you may not want to frolic in the waves this far north, but when the trade-off includes polar bears, walruses, narwhals, white and bowhead whales, a yachting experience to a polar region is insanely rewarding.
