Why a Superyacht Charter
Not far from the Amalfi Coast in southern Italy, North Sardinia is up there with the Italian Riviera and French Riviera in terms of highly fashionable superyacht charter destinations. With beautiful beaches, coastline and islands, the Italian island of Sardinia also has some high quality resorts with excellent boutiques, three star restaurants and a nightlife to rival the Balearic Islands.
There are four broad yacht charter destination you can enjoy on a Sardinia luxury yacht charter on the Mediterranean Sea. Let's take a look at them below.
With Porto Cervo at the epicentre, the northern mainland of Sardinia has a wealth of luxury resorts and quite stunning venues to drop anchor. You may wish to enjoy a white sandy beach all to yourself and those of your charter guests, or engage with the frenetic social life ashore in Porto Cervo, Cannigione or Porto Rotondo. You will be among beautiful people who know how to have fun, day and night!
One of the draws to the Emerald Coast is the La Maddalena archipelago just to the NE of Porto Cervo. These islands have many a beautiful beach and clear waters in which to go snorkeling or swimming. The main islands of La Maddalena Island and Santa Maria are the most crowded but, perhaps with your skipper's advice you can enjoy somewhere quieter and more exclusive to enjoy on your private yacht charter as part of a perfect yacht holiday.
Just to the north of Sardinia across the Bonifacio straits is the French island of Corsica. You may wish to visit the fashionable resort of Porto Vecchio or a quieter destination like St Florent on the north coast (perhaps before heading off to St Tropez on the French Riviera and Italian Riviera as part of a longer sailing trip). Corsica is known for its Genoese fortifications and old cities that have been inhabited for thousands of years - a big culture fix after the Costa Smeralda!
Perhaps on a luxury motor yacht you may have the range and speed to go further afield on your Sardinia yacht charter. The fashionable Amalfi Coast and nearby islands such as Capri are an afternoon's sail across the calm Western Mediterranean Sea.
Further south you can reach Sicily and its nearby volcanic Aeolian Islands. Your West Mediterranean yacht charter itinerary may take in the fireworks of Stromboli or Mount Etna as well as the fun of Palermo ashore.

With your luxury charter yacht as a base, the crew will look after your needs while you focus on fun and relaxation. On your sailing yacht or motor yacht you can access isolated, sandy beaches inaccessible to others in quiet coves where you can swim among colourful fish.
You can go ashore at different locations to enjoy socialising and the best restaurants in Porto Cervo and then perhaps disappear to rebalance off a quiet island like Santa Maria the next. Often the boat charter will carry water toys such as a motor boat, windsurfing gear and jet skis for you to blast around a quiet bay and have fun out of the sight and sound of others.
A Sardinia superyacht charter is best enjoyed in the summer months between May and September with the peak season in July and August on your sailing yacht or motor yacht charter yacht.
A Sardinia luxury crewed yacht charter is one of the safest, most luxurious and most convenient ways to travel and enjoy beautiful locations from the mountainous terrain of the Corsican coast to the excellent restaurants near Olbia on your yacht charter holiday.

Whether sailing yachts or power catamarans, these have a wide beam and shallow draft and make for spacious and comfortable luxury yachts. Even the smaller vessels (15m LOA and up) will have en suite heads in the cabins, and can often carry water toys like jet skis and paddleboards aboard. You can have a crewed catamaran charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel and what you want from a sailing holiday.
From a catamaran to a luxury motor yacht charter these are faster and often have far more space. Expect a more comfortable, premium experience on motor yacht, ranging from a mini cruiser to top end superyacht charter vessels. You can have crewed yacht charter or bareboat charter depending on the size of vessel with the skipper and crew looking after you.
The larger crewed yachts are often available on a corporate yacht charter or private yacht charter basis as a means of escaping to an out of the way place without distraction. These will have water toys such as a speed boat, jet ski and diving equipment so you can enjoy water sports even without having to go ashore.
Whether a classic racing yacht or more modern cruiser racer sailing yacht, these sleek, stylish and more traditional sailboats still have the space you need but can sail in near silence with just the sound of the wind and waves as you move along under wind power alone. These can come as something smaller or a 30 metre plus corporate yacht chartertoo with water toys and a skipper and crew looking after you.
Luxury yacht charters are best when augmented by great weather. The perfect time for a premium charter in Sardinia are:
Early Season (May to June): The NE maestrale from the Rhone Valley may cool the region a bit and the seas are cooler after winter. Sea temperatures can be 15 degrees C but air temperatures can touch the comfortable low 20s.
Peak Season (July and August): Sea breezes will make for great sailing but it can get very hot with temperatures into the 40s. There will be little in the way of rain, but you will be grateful for any in the heat.
Late Season (September and early October): The sea is going to be warm - in the 20s C - yet the air cools down to the high teens and 20s, making for a great time for a swim! Winds - notably the maestrale - can pick up and you may find it rains more too.
Sailors will enjoy the Solaris Cup out of Porto Rotondo in late May/early June. Out of Porto Cervo the annual Lora Piana superyacht regatta in June blasts around the La Maddalena Island group - something you may be able to participate in on a luxury sailing yacht with a dedicated racing skipper to perhaps even go for Line Honours!
July and August are when the marinas are at their busiest and most expensive. It is very crowded, even out on the islands. Most of the social events are at their best at this time of year though and the buzz is a good one.
For those after a quieter time after the crowds have gone, try to visit Sardinia in September. The seas are bath-warm still and the sun is comfortably - not fiercely - warm. Though many shorreside establishments close, it can be a more authentic side to Sardinia.
On your luxury yacht sailing boat or motor yacht charter itinerary you can enjoy the best of Southern Italy on Sardinia yacht charter.
