Yes. This region has a fairly constant warm breeze to maximise your sailing days. Our itinerary route is designed to create ideal sailing with the predominant NW wind angles. Before each charter we plan using the forecast wind direction/strength and often change the order of your itinerary whilst visiting the same places. This creates exhilarating sailing with the contrast of calm anchorages for swimming. We minimise any motoring during your holiday.
Prior to your arrival and at your ‘Welcome on board’ meeting we establish the perfect balance for your holiday.
We tailor your day to suit your preferences, but typically we sail between all destinations and bays with two or more anchorages for lunch, swimming, sunbathing and relaxing.

We take great pride in saying that our guests have not suffered from seasickness. If we know someone is susceptible to sea sickness we carefully choose our sailing angles for the first day/s to ensure guests are comfortable. Its similar to either driving a fast car on a winding country road or gently driving on a straight road. How we sail the yacht and advise our guests means guests who might be susceptible can quickly enjoy the experience.

Chartering a yacht for the first time can seem a little confusing as a ‘Skippered’ or ‘Crewed’ charter may appear to be the same but in fact the holiday experience will be very different.
Our Crewed luxury charters offer a hotel style experience with luxury accommodation and hospitality service on a yacht, without hidden extra costs. See detailed information ‘What is included/not included in your charter on our Itinerary/Prices page.

Your Breakfasts and Lunches are included with unlimited refreshment drinks. Your chef/hostess will prepare and present delicious Mediterranean/Italian dishes from our menu served on deck with wine from Sardinian vineyards.
Your spacious en-suite cabins for up to 4 guests are stylishly presented and are serviced daily by your crew. We include all yacht fuel, luxury transfers and your permit for daily access to the Maddalena Marine Archipelago.

Our 7 night charters can be 8 full days sailing to coincide with your flight arrival/departure times to maximise your holiday experience.
A Skippered charter offered by other companies will literally only include the yacht and the services of a Skipper, you will be self-catering, including meals for your skipper and will incur additional costs for yacht security/yacht insurance, fuel, moorings, cruising permits, dinghy, outboard, additional sails, laundry, final cleaning and airport transfers. You may need to charter a larger yacht as the skipper will require his own private cabin.
A Skippered 7 night charter with other companies may actually only be 6 days on the water as you may not be able to board the yacht until 5pm on arrival day and will need to leave before 9am on your departure day.
