An Expert Guide to Wonderful Sailing Holidays in Italy

➣ A Glorious Tapestry of Culture

It is impossible to generalise about sailing holiday experiences in Italy. The experiences on offer are as diverse and unique as the people themselves.

➣ Four Diverse Sailing Areas

There are four sailing regions in Italy; the Amalfi Coast, Sicily, Sardinia and the Tuscan Islands. Each promises a completely unique holiday to the next.

➣ Balanced Sailing Conditions

The sailing conditions are balanced with enough wind to get you around but not enough to get you in trouble. Enjoy a long hot, dry summer season.

➣ A Stunning Culinary Experience

No description of Italy is complete without reference to their wonderful cuisine. Sail from one authentic restaurant to another soaking it all in.

Description

Why we love Italy and you will too

It is impossible to generalise about our selection of sailing regions in Italy. The experiences on offer are as diverse and unique as the people themselves. Tuscans, Neapolitans, Sicilians and Sardinians all form a rich tapestry on which modern day Italy is shaped.

A sailing holiday to Italy reflects this, with each destination offering a very different character and beauty for each sailor to discover. Whether you’re looking for lovely golden beaches, colourful Italian architecture, amazing natural wonders, glam and glitz, secluded rustic islands, dramatic craggy coasts or exciting sailing breezes – Italy has them all. Take your time to read through each of our regional profiles and get to know a different side of Italy – best viewed from your very own yacht.

Sardinia – A destination with a split personality; flash and brash in places, demure and idyllic in others. The Costa Smeralda (‘Emerald Coast’) is a stunning location with golden sandy beaches, national parks & big budgets.

The Amalfi Coast – The only way to improve the Amalfi experience is to do it by boat. Escape the crowds and have the ‘best view in the house’ from the back of your very own private yacht.

Sicily– Europe’s most historically cosmopolitan region, Sicily is full of unique culture, great food and lovely island escapes. Discover these brash, stark and even active, volcanic islands.

Tuscan Islands – Largely undiscovered as a sailing area, Tuscany offers archipelago sailing, with seaside towns, golden sandy beaches and wonderful sailing breezes. Corsica is also within striking distance!

There is one other common theme, the food is without question the best on offer in any of our sailing destinations. Even a visit to a large ‘faceless’ supermarket yields food better than you find in many markets back home (don’t get us started on the fruit, amazing!) Make sure you visit the authentic Italian delis and gelaterias during the day and at night find that magical authentic Italian family restaurant. It will be there somewhere.

"Having returned from our third sailing holiday booked with Seamaster Yacht Charter I can thoroughly recommend them, they are so attentive matching your wish list to give you an outstanding experience. Their attention to detail, advice and instruction for travel are spot on, their knowledge of the sea and surrounding countryside is fab - they produce some very useful guides which include information from suggestion on where to sail to where to buy fuel to the best place to eat".

Sailing Qualifications

To bareboat charter in Italy you need to have a sailing qualification issued by a recognised authority (e.g. RYA, ASA, IYT, USSA). This qualification needs to have no restrictions on daylight hours or state a maximum specified distance from shore. If you have an RYA Day Skipper qualification or similar, you will also need to obtain the International Certificate of Competence (ICC) as an RYA Day Skipper alone is not sufficient. An RYA Yacht Master is, of course, accepted.

Money and Currency

The national currency in Italy is the Euro. There are a plentiful supply of cash machines and some bureau de change can be found on the larger islands, so withdrawing money and changing alternative currencies is possible. We recommend you arrive with enough local currency to cover the first couple of days of your holiday. Cards are accepted in supermarkets but most restaurants and small tourist shops tend to prefer cash.
