On the waterfront, with Naples’ eight marinas stretching along it, is the neighbourhood of Chiaia with a long promenade, excellent shopping and a vibrant nightlife.

This is just scratching the surface of what you will find in Napoli. What else can you discover on your catamaran charter Naples? Read on to find out more!
You can enjoy a sunset cruise or fishing charter boat charter on a Naples catamaran charter or go for a cabin charter on a private catamaran sailing charter. Let’s consider where you can go on Naples itineraries with a Borrow a Boast catamaran charter.
On your Southern Italy yacht charter you will want to explore the sights and sounds of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Heading south from Naples past the Legendary Mount Vesuvius above Pompeii you will soon reach the Sorrentine Peninsula. The holiday town of Sorrento with its excellent Marina Piccola should be a first stop to enjoy an old town that does well from entertaining British holidaymakers.
From Marina Piccola you can sail to the fashionable holiday island of Capri that is among the most popular holiday islands in Southern Italy. Marina Grande is the main marina on the island and offers access to the villages, restaurants and beaches that have made Capri one one of Italy’s most fashionable holiday destinations as far back as Roman times.
Rounding the Sorrentine Peninsula from Capri you will soon reach the Amalfi Coast, another location of holiday legend with its villages perched on the high steep coast. Similar to Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera, the Amalfi Coast has been popular since the British discovered it in the 1800s and made it what it is today.
Heading northwest from Napoli you will soon hit the Phlegraean Islands of Procida and Ischia. These islands are quieter than Capri but like the Aeolian island of Vulcano to the south are famous for their warm volcanic mud baths and their wellness industry.
On a longer Naples yacht charter you can get as far as the Pontine Islands. The Pontine Islands are much wilder and quieter than even the Phlegraean Islands and Capri, and have been used as places of exile in Roman and Fascist times.
On a private catamaran sailing charter you could even get as far as the Italian Riviera on a sailing catamaran or motor yacht. Book your Italy yacht charter with Borrow a Boat today!
You don’t need to worry about being an experienced sailor or even sailing the boat out of Naples Bay with Borrow a Boat! A Naples crewed catamaran charter (private yacht charter) on a motor yacht or sailing catamaran can mean you do as much or as little physically sailing the yacht as you like on your yacht charter holiday.
A skippered yacht charter or will mean that the skipper will be aboard with their own cabin to attend to all your needs. A crewed yacht rental (or gulet charter) will involve one or two crew on the boat trip who will cook, sail and make suggestions as to your best destinations on your sailing itinerary. With their local knowledge, even if you’re an experienced sailor you can enjoy a perfect yacht charter holiday.
One of the advantages of a crewed yacht charter sailing vacation is that you can go longer distances from the yacht charter base. A longer run to Sicily (to see the Aeolian Island of Stromboli or the Egadi Islands to the west) is possible too.
As to you? You can just enjoy the breezes and views on yourluxury yacht charter, or if you fancy learning a bit about sailing, help the skipper or crew to get the boat from A-B.
A Napoli crewed yacht charter will cost a little more (typically €150 a day for a skipper and €100 per crew member) and it’s the done thing to thank them with a tip at the end of the week.
A bareboat charter holiday will mean that you can take the charter yacht out on your own. Generally for vessels up to 20 metres LOA on a sailing license such as an RYA Day Skipper or ASA 104 Bareboat certificate, you will have total responsibility for the yacht.
You will need to think about your sailing itinerary, victualling, possible secondary ports should a marina be full, as well as issues like weather and mooring fees.
On a bareboat catamaran charter you will be asked to pay for insurance in the form of a security deposit to the chartercompany on departure or through buying charter insurance before you leave the yacht charter base on your sailing trip.
When searching a geographical area on Borrow A Boat you can filter by the below charter yacht types. There is also the option to further filter your searches by price, the number of guests, cabins or bathrooms, what year the catamaran was launched, the boat length and the boat manufacturer.
Sailing Charter Catamaran: Luxury catamarans are stable and spacious type of sailboat charter, with quick sailing performance, and and have been gaining in popularity in recent years. Better for larger groups, they have lots of room for water toys such as a paddleboard or even jet ski, and are big enough for a little privacy. A catamaran charter luxury yacht is easy and comfortable for novices not used to heeling and are loved by families due to their extra space when compared to a monohull sailing yacht. Typically far more luxurious than a monohull sailboat boat charter, the larger catamarans have en suite toilets and showers in the cabin as well as ample entertaining space in the saloon and on deck.
Motor Catamaran: These motor yacht charter catamarans are relatively new but have also been gaining in popularity as the two hulls keep the boat more stable when compared to a monohull. The wider beam of these motor boat also mean more deck space and as they don’t have sails or a mast, they have a lot more space on deck than a sailing catamaran rental or monohull. For a luxury catamaran charter, consider taking a crewed catamaran chartersailing vacation with an experienced skipper.
On your Naples crewed catamaran boat rental or bareboat charter sailing holiday you can explore Naples Bay and wider Southern Italy. Here we suggest a 7 day sailing trip and a 14 day yacht charter holiday on your charter yacht:
7 days - Capri and Amalfi Coast: Passing Mount Vesuvius to port, you will head for Sorrento as a first port of call. A night at Marina Grande on Capri will be next and then a few days exploring the Amalfi Coast as far east as Salerno. Sailing back via Capri, spend a final night on Ischia on the way back to your charter base.
14 days - Sicily and Southern Italy: Perhaps best on a private yacht charter catamaran, this longer sailing holiday takes you south across the Tyrrhenian Sea as far as the Egadi Islands off the western tip of Sicily. You will likely do a long leg to the Aeolian Island of Stromboli as a first leg and then cruise the northern coast of Sicily, hitting towns like Capo d’Orlando and Palermo as you enjoy the full gamut of an Italy yacht charter in all its shades. Return with a long leg from the Egadi islands back to Naples Bay.
If you are on a skippered catamaran charter you do not need a license to sail out of Naples, you can just turn up at the marina and go.
You do need a sailing license if you are on a bareboat catamaran charter. You will need to check with the charter agent but here are some examples of typical sailing qualifications that will allow you to charter in most countries:
International Certificate of Competence: This is issued on request by your European sailing authority and you should automatically qualify with certain national sailing qualifications.
RYA Qualifications: If you have the following qualifications you will typically be able to take a bareboat charter out of Palma (but it is worth checking as per above), these include Day Skipper (sail or motor endorsement), Coastal Skipper or Yachtmaster.
American Sailing Association (ASA): The ASA 104 Bareboat certificate is commonly accepted but also check as per above
US Sailing: The International Proficiency Certificate is widely accepted and The Bareboat Cruising Certificate is also accepted in many cases.
The main points to consider are what is your budget, have you got the necessary sailing experience and qualifications to manage the boat if it's not going to have a skipper, whom you are taking sailing, where exactly you wish to go and what will the weather be like on the proposed dates of your trip.
You will typically pay 50% up front on reserving the catamaran hire and the balance on arrival. You will either pay a security deposit with your credit card on departure or can get insurance covering damage in advance. In some cases (such as the recent Covid situation) charter companies may be more flexible but this depends on the individual charter companies themselves.
If you are at sea and in danger, call MAYDAY on VHF Ch16 or ring the coast guard on your phone if you have reception. If you have a mechanical fault and can make it to or are on a mooring you will be able to phone a help line number given by the boat charter company and they can typically send someone from the charter base
You should consider do you have the experience to handle the catamaran before you book and where do you want to go along with what the weather will be like. Bring warm weather and cool weather clothing if it looks like the weather can be cool as well as warm and remember at sea it can be cool in the evenings.
If you want to sail without a skipper then you will need relevant qualifications like RYA Day Skipper/International Certificate of Competence (ICC)/ASA 104 Bareboat certificate or the US Sailing Certificate. If you choose to have a skipper on board your catamaran you won't require licences.
