Italy Yacht Charter Destinations @ Catamaran Italy Charter @ Sailing Italy
Italy is home to some of the best sailing grounds in the Mediterranean witnessed by the large number of boats that are kept in the area. The lack of natural harbors located along the coast and the limited numbers of places in the marinas can make it really challenging to find a berth during the summer months on the Italian coast. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily tend to enjoy more wind than the Bay of Naples and the Riviera (check weather) but, in general, there is a lot less during the summer months than other times of the year and yachts tend to have to motor more here than elsewhere in the Mediterranean. The Italians’ love affair with speed, that explains the high numbers of motor boats relative to sailing boats in the area. But, when the sun shines, and there is a warm, steady breeze, most yachtsmen would feel that the wait had been worth it. The variety of scenery, the fabulous climate, the beautifully clear water and Italian food and wine certainly go some way to make up for the lack of wind! Our yachts are in many number of yacht charter centers in the key sailing areas of Italy.
