Bareboat Charter

Bareboat charter is simply the rental of the boat, meaning the rental of the entire vessel without a crew.
You can still choose to book a local skipper, experienced in the area, to handle the operation of your boat.
If you prefer to rent the boat without a local skipper, who is knowledgeable about the area, you will need additional documents, such as a boating license valid in Italy or the Seychelles (please be aware that on sailing catamarans you need the integration of your license for sailing boats). Furthermore, given the size of our catamarans, you must be able to demonstrate relevant experience through a sailing resume.
To rent one of our boats in Sardinia, it is mandatory to possess a navigation license recognised by the Italian port authorities, such as the (sailing) boating license within 12 nautical miles.
However, licenses issued by foreign authorities, such as the Yachtmaster, are also recognised.
We recommend contacting us before booking your vacation regarding the qualifications and requirements for renting without a skipper.
We reserve the right to assess the skipper’s skills directly at the base and to not deliver the boat, if, despite the briefing, our Base Manager believes that the renter is not, or may not be, able to handle the requested boat.
The rental cost does not include:
  • Skipper cost: if you book a skipper, you can pay the skipper directly in cash upon arrival (Sardinia and Seychelles) or pay in advance for the Seychelles.
  • Expenses: fuel, fresh water, ports and moorings, provisioning, landing fees, new environmental levy (Seychelles only), national park fees, and any local taxes.
  • Any extras you can book: provisioning (our staff can bring groceries directly onboard following your instructions), skipper, chef / hostess, kayak / SUP, full board, fishing equipment, beverages, fishing equipment, Wi-Fi, airport / port / hotel transfers. All these extras can be booked in advance and settled at the base.
  • Tender outboard engine: we highly recommend adding it for a complete onshore experience.
  • Charter Pack (mandatory), bed linen and towel sets.
  • Security deposit: a deposit for renting a boat without a skipper
Our base is always more than pleased to welcome you! You can leave your luggage and take a moment to relax in the bar and restaurants right next to our office (at all our bases).
To conclude the rental agreement, our colleagues will need to perform the check-in at our office, along with your documents, before showing you the boat.
You can board from 5:00 pm (for cruises in Sardinia) and from 2:00 pm (for cruises in Seychelles). If, by chance, you arrive later, please inform us of your arrival time so that we can welcome you promptly and deliver the boat to you as soon as possible.
We recommend taking out a trip cancellation insurance policy with any insurance agency in case you need to cancel or modify your cruise for an unexpected reason.
You can also add a personal insurance policy that covers navigation at sea.
All out boats are insure with a rental clause, with excellent European agencies that cover all risks and third-party liabilities.
For rentals without a skipper, you will need to leave a security deposit at our base upon arrival, in the amount of €4.000, which will be refunded when you return the boat without any damages.
You can take out insurance on the deposit to significantly reduce the required deposit amount. Contact us to discover all the details about it!

This type of trip, available for all the destinations offered, is distinctive in providing a singular experience at advantageous prices.
