“We had a great time in Greece”

We had a great time in Greece, the first three days we had constant 20-25knots of wind, so we were able to do a lot of sailing. The boat was also in good condition and everything in working order…the boat did however look a bit older than a 2018 mode…

“We tried to make the most of it, but it was far from ideal”

Hey Grigory, thanks for asking. The boat was not in good condition. For example, there were no mooring, deck or motoring lights, so we feared a boat would hit us while we slept, and were not complying with the law while sailing at night. The anchor w…

“с погодой не очень повезло”

Все было отлично, с погодой не очень повезло, самые холодные майские праздники на моей памяти. По яхте все ок, понятно что она не новая, но претензий нет, все работало

Sailing Italy

With extensive coastline, Italy bareboat charters have  something to offer even the most experienced sailors. From chic resorts  in Capri to gorgeous views of Sardinia, erupting volcanoes in the  Aeolian Islands, the rich history of Rome, sandy beaches of Sicily and  the charming slow-paced life on the Amalfi Coast, whichever region you  choose for your sailing vacation each will be a unique adventure.

Being a center of international tourism, Italy is visited by over 50  million people each year. Experiencing Italy on a sailing vacation is a  great way to enjoy this wonderful, sunny country and make lasting  memories. Many find that one trip isn't enough, and will return again  and again to relax and soak up all that Italy has to offer.

Italian Cuisine

Apart from the exciting history, fashion and friendly people,  Italy is a country that is world famous for its delicious cuisine. Once  you charter a boat in Italy, make this trip an unforgettable experience  by exploring culture and traditional lifestyle through local foods. You  may dine in small marinas, stock up with seafood, try fantastic fruits  and vegetables in local markets, or lunch in casual waterside pizzerias  while sailing in Salerno or Naples. Discover Italy's famous gelato  ice-cream in Rome, or sample world renowned Tuscan wines while sailing  in Follonica, Piombino or Livorno.


Sailing in Italy is the best possible way to explore this gorgeous  country, as you can reach the most beautiful spots while avoiding  crowded tourist destinations. As is typical for much of the  Mediterranean, Italy's climate is mostly subtropical, with warm dry  summers and wet winters. The months of May through October are optimal  for a bareboat charter in Italy. During these months you can expect  moderate winds from 10 to 20 knots while average temperatures will range  from 70 to 90 F (20 to 30 C). July and August are the peak of the  summer season, with temperatures reaching up to 90 F (30 C) and warm  seas that can rise to a comfortable 75 F (24 C). This is a great time  for sailors with moderate skills to experience and explore the region.  The winter months can also be a wonderful time for a sailing trip in  Italy, with mild temperatures and fewer crowds.

Sailing Areas

There are 5 major areas in Italy with the highest concentration of  sailing yachts and catamarans for charter. 12 knots offers yacht  rentals in Salerno, as well as a large fleet of charter yachts in  Tropea, Follonica, Skarlino and Naples.

Naples bareboat charter, Amalfi Coast

Sheltered short passages and light breezes make this area ideal  for a relaxed sailing vacation. When taking a yacht charter in Italy  you must consider sailing along the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Most Italy  and Amalfi yacht charters begin in Naples. This city has distinct energy  - chaotic but beautiful. While it may feel daunting at first sight,  Naples will soon charm you with its hospitality and colorful culture.  From the Naples yacht charter base in southern Italy, you have an easy  gateway to Capri and the Amalfi coast.

In less than a day's passage from Naples you may reach the Amalfi  coastline that stretches from Sorrento to Salerno, the most stunning and  incomparable coastline of the Mediterranean. Beautiful hillside towns  with colorful terrace houses clinging to steep cliffs represent  authentic Italian architecture.

Salerno is the biggest yacht charter base in Italy that can boast a  long history dating back to the 4th century. One of the most popular  historical sites of this sailing destination is the Arechi Castle. Built  in the 6th century, this castle offers the best views of the entire  town of Salerno.

From there you may head to Capri, one of the most prestigious sailing  destinations. A reservation is necessary for a berth in the marina  beforehand, as this is a popular and busy place during the summer  season.

Yacht charters in Procida can be an alternative to Naples. Located in  the Bay of Naples, this relatively undiscovered and untouched island  can be easily reached by ferry. Procida has open access to the Amalfi  Coast and Pontine Islands.

Sailing Scarlino

This is another must visit destination for an Italian yacht  charter. This tiny town has cobblestone streets and is framed by hills  of ancient, silvery olive groves. From the top of the hill, opens a  breathtaking view of the harbor and beautiful coastline. Numerous  waterside cafes offer great places to sit and watch the glamorous  yachting world. Further down the Italian coast, you may sail to Elba,  the largest island of the Tuscan Archipelago, located only 6 miles from  Piombino. Elba has several coastal villages, all with the same  spectacular views of the seas. You may also like to stop and take a walk  along the streets of the island's  principal town – Portoferraio.

Boat rentals In Italy

A yacht charter in Italy requires a valid skipper's license.  The skipper must be at least 18 years of age (this is also a basic  requirement for obtaining a sailing license) and must carry their  license at all times during the vacation. A valid skipper's license will  allow you to sail along the coastline within 20 miles of the shore.

In order to charter a motor boat you will also need an official  permit allowing you to operate a power vessel with an engine over 40 hp.  Italian authorities recognize most of the International Certificates of  Pleasure Craft Operators.

Italians are very sensitive about the protection of their marine  reserves. You should keep in mind that it is forbidden to bring a yacht  close to the shore in protected areas (usually a minimum distance is 1  to 2 miles). In these areas it is also prohibited to fish, collect  seashells, sea plants, cruise on a boat with a working engine, anchor,  or practice any type of water sport. Italian protected areas are found  in Cinque Terre, the Tuscan Archipelago, Isole Tremiti, Miramar,  Maddalena Archipelago, Egadiysky Archipelago, the island of Ustica,  Porto Cesareo and Ventotene.

Italy is among the countries of the Schengen Agreement, and is a  member of EFTA. For citizens of the countries that are members of these  organizations, as well as for EU citizens, a valid passport is all that  is required to enter Italy. You are allowed to stay in the country for  up to 90 days.
