We had a fabulous week on the boat - we found the charter company (Marco) very helpful.
The Island of Elba was a lovely destination although some of the Marinas were closed this late in the season.
Easy sailing, helpful marinas and great places to visit.
I would highly recommend this company and destination.
If you have a group of friends and you want a good cruise , "Keba" - Sun Odyssey 44i - is the yacht for you, and Parallelo 45 the company (friendly/on the ball/super efficient.) you can fly into Pisa Aeroporto,take the shuttle to Pisa Centrale station, and the Trenitalia train all along the coast to Follonica, then a short taxi ride or bus to Marina di Scarlino. It's a 16 nmls sail to Elba (Porto Azzuro, Rio Marina (less touristy), Porto Ferrario (berthing 66e) , & Marciana Marina (anchored off) - all superb and very "Italian". 22nmls NW to Capairia ( small and pretty with an impressive fortress) but berthing here was 85 e !) then on to the Old Harbour at Bastia rather than Marina Togo 1km to the north. If you have time, go to Maccinagio as well We were blessed with good warm weather and winds. Keba sails very well (8-9 its on a reach) - she is roomy - she can take 9 at a pinch. Everything is well set up and works. The electric winch saves a lot of effort. Swim from the yacht of course. Good fridge & cooking facilities -we had 2 chefs on board. Gin and tonic and local wine just slipped down.
All elements were excellent from Check in to Check out. Staff was courteous and helpful. Boat was in excellent condition missing nothing. Would rebook without hesitation.
Everything was wonderful from the booking process through execution. I'll definitely be doing this again!
