SAILING BOATS IN ITALY: WHERE TO GO?
Sailboat rental in Italy has never been easier: you can rent a charter sail in one of the many marinas of our coasts and islands, for an amazing holiday. You are spoiled for choice: a sailboat rental in La Spezia allows you to navigate the Gulf of Poets, see Portovenere, the Cinque Terre, and reach Portofino. Renting a charter in Sardinia allows you to visit some of the most beautiful coasts in the world. There are hundreds of sailing boats for hire on the Costa Smeralda and in the Cagliari area, to see a coast not as touristy as in the north but just as beautiful. You can rent a sailboat on the coast between Lazio and Campania, to sail to the Pontine islands, or rent a charter in Naples for Capri, Ischia and the Amalfi Coast. In Sicily, a land of seafaring tradition, there is no lack of possibilities: Cefalù, Capo d'Orlando and Lipari are the starting points for the Aeolian Islands, a UNESCO heritage site. If you want wilder islands in a context of crystal clear sea, all that remains is to opt for a boat rental in Marsala or Trapani, on the Egadi islands route. In the Adriatic Sea, the areas suitable for sailing continue: Santa Maria di Leuca and Taranto for the Ionian and Salento. The whole Apulian coast is dotted with tourist ports with excellent offers and heading north we meet Rodi Garganico and Peschici, for a sailing holiday around the unspoiled Gargano. Not far away are the Tremiti Islands, for a peaceful holiday in the archipelago. And going back to the north, have you ever thought about the beauty of sailing in the Venetian lagoon? Not only Venice, but also the Po delta, Chioggia, Caorle, Lignano, Trieste. And why not, a nice bet, sea and wind permitting, on the facing coast of Istria.
SAILING BOATS IN ITALY: WHICH ONE TO CHOOSE?
For a sailing charter holiday, the question arises of which boat to rent. Once we have decided on the area we like, on Italycharter you can find dozens and dozens of proposals from local operators. The sailing boats for rent range from 30-31 feet up to large 58-foot yachts, from the main European and world shipyards: Benetau, Dufour and Jeanneau for France, Bavaria and Hanse for Germany, Slovenian Elan, boats of builders Italians such as Cossutti and Cantieri del Pardo and many others. A criterion for choosing a sailboat rental is the size and, consequently, the number of cabins. As a family or with 3-4 friends, a medium-small boat from 30 to 40 feet with 2 or 3 cabins is sufficient. The presence of two bathrooms can make the difference: on our website you can order the boat rental proposals by number of toilets, as well as by all characteristics (length, model, year, cabins, starting point and price). For a larger family, and / or friends, you may want a boat with 4 cabins. Boats with this set-up are typically over 40 feet (the most common models are the Dufour and the Bavaria 46), which are an excellent compromise between habitability and performance. Finally, for maximum comfort, you could opt for a medium-large sailboat, 50-55 feet. These types of boats have a bathroom in each cabin. On request, the sailboat charter provides the skipper who, in these larger yachts, stay in a small independent cabin, to ensure the privacy of our customers. The performance of the boat is also important for a sailor: you can get all the details of the boat, technical specifications such as sail area and draft, complete with photos and equipment, by clicking on more information, after selecting a particular charter boat. p>
