Just finished a fantastic week in Sardinia and Corsica. The charter company were excellent. They were helpful and always responded quickly to any questions. Our boat was a 2019 42 Lagoon, so really comfortable and well equipped. I loved that the company provided some basics in the boat, such as spices, seasoning, cloths, soap, etc. Tommi, our skipper, made our holiday. His priority was our safety and comfort and he did everything possible to make sure we did the things that were important to us. His expert knowledge of the area meant we saw some really amazing places, often the first to arrive, so managing to secure some great anchors. He also responded quickly to the changing winds, making sure we used them to our advantage, or just finding a secluded bay to wait them out. This is my second experience with globesailor and they were as good as last time. I couldn’t recommend them, or Sardinia week, our charter company, highly enough.
Lagoon 400 S2
Very nice vacation with a great crew and new friends
It was a very nice week. The crew and new couples on the boat were great. Happy that we were only 5 peoples without the crew cause 4 couples would be to tight for this boat and we would have had to share 1 bathroom with the crew. ps no beach towel and mask as mentionne.
Great 1 week charter out of Olbia in Sardinia
The 5-yr old catamaran was ready early and in good condition. The DYC Olbia staff had someone on hand to walk us through all the boat systems. They also provided a skippers meeting where we reviewed the different destinations and the upcoming weather for that week. So we were able to sail away and spend the 1st night at a beautiful anchorage just east of Olbia. Everything worked as intended including some of the typical problem items like the dinghy outboard engine, the generator and air conditioner. About the only issue we encountered all week was the water maker tripping a fuse but we were able to reset the fuse and it continued working. Our impression is that the DYC staff is very professional and stay on top of the maintenance and cleaning of their boats.
Cleaner boat friendlier staff needed
Toilets were stained and aft head not functioning properly. Asked to fix but not done fully so we had problems 2 days into 7 day charter. Staff could be friendlier and take feedback better than they did. I would have appreciated boat overview/ tour email with link to be shared a few days ahead of time so crew could familiarize. I don’t like the late departure on Saturday but the must arrivals back to base on Friday by 4 pm and then they kick you out Saturday by 9:00 am. It is not like this in Croatia
We have been sailing around the globe in chartered monohull sailboats for many years. This year we sailed from Porto Rosa marina in Sicily to theAeolian islands. We chartered a 46 ft 2023 Beneteau sail boat for a week. Although my wife and I are certified sailors, we always have a skipper with us for safety and also to guide us through local waters, marinas, must see spots, and restaurant recommendations. The marina staff were very friendly, and helpful. They arranged for free transportation to a nearby store to buy our provisions. The boat was in an excellent condition with a furling main sail, electric winches, and electric anchor that you control from the cockpit. Dishes and kitchenware were provided in clean sealed plastic bags. Sheets and towels were all clean and also provided in sealed plastic bags. The skipper (Luigi) was a sailing school instructor who was very knowledgeable of the area and very pleasant to be with. He also enjoyed sailing as a hobby, not as a job. He also paid a lot of attention to safety.. at the end of the sailing week, he dropped us off on one of the island to stay in a nice resort for a week, and sailed the boat by himself to the base to deliver it to the marina in Porto Rosa.. Overall, this was one of our best sailing experiences, and we will definitely come back.

Wry good service
The boat was as expected. But the service from Angelina was better than expected.
Wonderful Experience in Seychelles
Check in at base (Eden Marina) was very easy. The skipper and cook helped us get our luggage on board and took us ti shop for food for our journey. Once the grocery shopping was complete, we had a safety briefing and headed out of the Marina. Our skipper was so accommodating and helped us deal with our older daughter being sea sick. He was priceless in helping us make shore arrangements and travel throughout the islands. Highly recommend this company, everything ran so smoothly.
Only one area for improvment
The service was excellent and the vessel was ready ahead of schedule. Everyone was helpful & willing to resolve our needs. However, the shore power for 1st & last night were timed out & on a meter. Being told the 1st & last night mooring were included, I assumed the shore power was included too but not a limited meter consumption. We woke up very early without shore power. That is the only area of potential improvement.
Our first time on a catamaran cruise. We loved all of it. Good weather and stormy weather, we got to experience it all. Captain and mate were awesome and did a great job keeping us informed and feed. We are already looking forward to our next trip.
Fabulous Holiday on a Top Level Yacht
Our charter experience was excellent from start to finish, with very efficient check-in and check-out. Our top-class professional skipper made our trip truly awesome; even with bad weather, he managed to keep our expectations. The new marina has very good facilities and is a great base to start your yacht charter in Croatia. The yacht itself was amazing, the space that the Bali yachts provide is really special and highly recommended.
