Although skippered vessels tend to be a bit more expensive than bareboats, we always recommend having a skipper on board your yacht rental. This is because skippers are licenced sailing experts and they take care of all the boating logistics so you don’t have to worry about anything during your holiday. With a skipper on board, you will have a more luxurious holiday, better customised to suit your every need. But perhaps the best part about a skippered vessel is the fact that they are usually locals who can take you to the city’s most important sights and give you recommendations to make your stay in Sorrento unforgettable. Sail securely and with peace of mind with a skipper on board!
