Nearby islands to visit
While sailing around Sardinia, we suggest you take a day to view the archipelago of La Maddalena. The Archipelago off the shore of Sardinia consists of seven main islands: La Maddalena, Caprera, Santo Stefano, Spargi, Budelli, Santa Maria, and Razzoli, as well as numerous smaller islets and rocky outcrops.
Sardinia is also only a short sail away from the French island of Corsica. In Corsica, you can explore the charming coastal towns of Bonifacio and Calvi, relax on the beautiful beaches of Santa Giulia and Palombaggia, and visit historic sites such as the Citadel of Corte and the archaeological site of Filitosa. You can also indulge in the delicious local cuisine, which includes fresh seafood, charcuterie, and wines, and experience vibrant cultural events such as the Calvi Jazz Festival and the Corsica Sailing Week.
The shortest distance between the two islands is between Bonifacio in southern Corsica and Santa Teresa di Gallura in northern Sardinia, which is approximately 11 nautical miles (20 kilometres) across the Bonifacio Strait. The crossing can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour depending on the type of boat you're sailing.
Like the rest of Italy, Sardinia experiences a typical Mediterranean climate: a 6-month summer of hot, dry days with lots of sunshine. Whilst there are fairly constant winds, Sardinia can be subject to the stronger Mistral, (so you should keep an eye on regular local forecasts during your yacht charter), but generally conditions are moderate and wind speeds range between 20-25 knots.
Reaching your yacht charter base
There are 4 main international airports on the island of Sardinia: in the cities of Cagliari, Olbia, Alghero and Arbatax. If you fly into any of these you will not be far from your boarding marina, and airport-base transfers can be organized in advance if you require.
Sailing Bareboat or with a Crew
Sailing with or without a skipper is a personal preference and depends on several factors, such as experience, comfort level, and budget. Suppose you are an experienced sailor with a good understanding of navigation. In that case, yacht charters without a skipper (also called bareboat) can be a rewarding adventure, as it provides more freedom and flexibility to explore the destination at your own pace. When you charter a yacht bareboat, you are in charge of everything, you are the captain of the boat! However, if you are a beginner or prefer a more relaxed sailing holiday, sailing with a skipper is the best option. A skipper is like the captain of the ship, and they can provide guidance, share their local knowledge, and ensure the safety of the crew and the yacht.
There is also an option to have a hostess or a cook on board GlobeSailor yachts. A hostess is responsible for making two of the daily meals (usually breakfast and lunch) and will take care of the boat's upkeep (tidying up common areas etc.). A cook is responsible for making all three meals on board the boat. Both crewed options allow clients to eat Italian-inspired dishes aboard a beautiful sailboat. Some guests prefer to choose the hostess option as it allows them to sail to a different marina each night and find the best authentic Italian restaurants on land.
Choosing the perfect boat to rent
Regarding yacht rental, the options can seem overwhelming! At GlobeSailor, we have boats of all shapes and sizes for you to rent. Our rentals range in length, berths, cabins, boat model, year of build, add ons such as a dinghy or water sports equipment, and of course, price.
Your choice of berths and cabins will vary depending on the type of sailboat, motor boat or catamaran you choose to rent. Usually, cabins will be single or doubles, meaning they can accommodate one or two people. There are also double cabins for individual use available on some boat rentals, which is a cabin option for one guest who wishes to have more space aboard the yacht.
We offer guests a choice between a sailboat, catamaran, power boat, luxury yacht, gulet or even houseboat! The choices for charters are endless!
Most guests choose either a sailboat or a catamaran to rent. Both boats have unique characteristics to satisfy the varying needs of clients.
A monohull or a sailboat is a traditional boat with one hull (mono!). It is focused on performance and offers sailors the traditional sailing experience. Many sailors like the traditional feel of a monohull. A monohull might be best for you if you fancy yourself a true captain of the seas! Popular boat models such as a Bavaria Cruiser and an Oceanis are available to rent on our website.
Catamarans have more than one hull. The multihull of a catamaran offers its guests more stability as the boat is equipped to rock less against the ocean waves. A catamaran is also more spacious than a monohull. Catamarans usually range from 30 feet to 60 feet, with the average length being around 45 feet. Catamarans have less heeling (tilting) than monohulls, providing passengers with a more comfortable and stable ride. Catamarans also have a shallower draft, which means they can sail in waters with a low tide and get closer to shore. Popular catamaran models such as a Lagoon and Odyssey are available to rent on our website.
GlobeSailor has an incredible fleet of yachts, catamarans, motor boats, gulets and luxury yachts to offer you for rental. Choose the boat of your dreams that fits your and your crew's needs, and spend a week or two sailing around on the trip of a lifetime! You can also choose between renting a bareboat charter and a crewed charter (meaning hiring a skipper and crew). Our crewed option for a boat rental can be the best choice if you don't have much sailing knowledge but still want the independence of chartering a boat. Your skipper or captain will take care of the navigation, and the hostess/cook will ensure your vacation week is at the luxury level. Your hired crew will have their own private cabins, meaning there's plenty of space on your boat for everyone!
Our experienced crews can take care of all the details, leaving you and your guests to do all the relaxing in the sun! Whatever type of boat rental you're looking for, GlobeSailor can help you find it!
One of the best things about a yacht charter is its flexibility. You can make the most of your day by choosing your own itinerary and touring the places that interest you the most, whether you want to island hop, explore the coast, or both. It's entirely up to you how you spend your holiday, and sometimes, there's nothing better than relaxing in the sun on your private deck or one of the cabins while having an excellent book to read! Whatever holiday you're looking for, Sardinia has some of the best yacht charters to choose from, ensuring you have a wonderful sailing experience.
