Discover Italy by boat

Italy's stunning landscapes and rich cultural heritage attract travellers from around the globe. Coastal towns flourish with maritime traditions and bustling economies. Embarking on a yacht charter in Italy offers a unique opportunity to explore untouched landscapes. Cruise along the rugged cliffs of the Amalfi Coast, explore Sicily's volcanic wonders, or navigate Venice's intricate waterways. These coastal havens not only bask in the influence of maritime culture but also thrive on the bustling economy generated by their proximity to the sea. Italy's beauty and charm beckon to be discovered on a yacht charter.

What type of boat is best for Italy?

When considering an Italy boat rental, it's important to consider the duration of your holiday before selecting the right vessel. If you're planning a short sailing adventure lasting only a few days, opting for a daily charter like a motorboat or an RIB is recommended. These speedy vessels allow you to cover all the destinations on your wish list in no time, maximising your time on the water.

On the other hand, if you're planning a longer charter of a week or more, choosing a vessel that provides the amenities you'll need during your stay is advisable. Catamarans and yachts are excellent options as they offer ample space and onboard accommodations to ensure a comfortable experience throughout your journey. These vessels are designed to provide all the comforts of home while you explore the captivating Italian coast. Gulets and sailboats offer an authentic sailing experience, adding an extra touch of elegance and charm to your voyage.

How much does it cost to charter a yacht in Italy?

If you’re looking for a dream Italian yacht charter, there are multiple factors to consider. Things such as the number of passengers on board, the time of year and the size and type of your yacht charter you choose will all impact the final cost. If you need a skippered vessel, this will probably be a bit more expensive, or it can be added to the price of your bareboat charter as an extra cost. The average price of boat rental in Italy is €600 per day.

What is included in the cost?

When renting a yacht, the cost typically covers a range of amenities and services. These may include fuel for the duration of the rental, fees for a skipper who handles navigation, and crew services on larger yachts, however, most of the time these come at an extra cost. Additionally, water sports equipment like snorkelling gear or paddleboards may be provided. Other amenities such as onboard dining, entertainment systems, and Wi-Fi may also be included. However, it's important to review with the boat owner to understand the specific inclusions and any potential additional charges.

What season is the best to charter a boat in Italy?

Italy's distinctive shape and diverse topography contribute to a remarkable variation in weather conditions across different regions. As a result, it is essential to consider the climate when planning your sailing adventure. In general, the summer months in Italy can be scorching, particularly in the southern regions, with the heat occasionally reaching levels that can be overwhelming.

To ensure a more pleasant experience with moderate air and water temperatures, we highly recommend considering a yachting holiday in September or October or even in May and June. During these periods, you can expect temperatures between 20°C and 25°C, creating ideal conditions for smooth sailing and enjoyable exploration of the stunning Italian coastline.

September or October allows you to revel in the lingering warmth of late summer while avoiding the intense heat waves that characterise peak summer months. May and June showcase vibrant landscapes adorned with blooming flowers and lush greenery, creating a picturesque backdrop for your sailing journey.

Renting a boat with or without a skipper?

At Click&Boat, you don't need a licence to go on a sailing holiday! We offer both bareboat vessels for experienced sailors and skippered vessels for those without experience. While skippered boat rentals may be more expensive, they provide added value. Having a skipper onboard is worth the extra cost, especially if you're looking for a luxury yacht charter.

Skippers are licensed professionals who possess extensive knowledge of sailing. They take care of docking, navigating, and anchoring the vessel. You can share your Italy itinerary with them, and they will ensure you visit all the places on your list. Most skippers are locals, so they can also recommend where to go and what to do. Choosing a crewed yacht charter in Italy ensures a personalised sailing excursion with peace of mind.
