Sailboat Rental Italy

Italy is a country renowned for many reasons including a rich gastronomy, beautiful beaches, and a claim to being the home of what was once one of the most powerful ancient empires in the world. Nowadays there are any number of places in Italy that are perfect tourist destinations and with a sailboat rental in Italy, you can visit many of them in one go. Visit gorgeous islands such as Sicily and Sardinia or one of the cities situated along the coast, making sure to stop off at the museums and art galleries and sample the local dishes.

How much does it cost to rent a sailboat in Italy?

The price of renting a sailboat in Italy can vary greatly depending on a number of different factors. A few of these factors include the size and model of the boat, the number of people on board, how long you want to rent for, the season, and whereabouts in Italy you want to rent a sailboat. In general though, renting a sailboat in Italy should cost you about £2209 per week in high season and £1227 per week in low season.

Do you need to rent a sailboat with a skipper in Italy?

No, in Italy you can rent a sailboat with or without a skipper. However, you will need to do some research before leaving if you plan on a sailboat rental without a skipper as you will need to make sure you have the appropriate boating licence before setting off, so you don’t break any laws and end up with a hefty fine.

If you have the appropriate boating licence, there is nothing to stop you from enjoying a bareboat sailboat rental in Italy, with total freedom to stop off at all the places you want. If you don’t have a boating licence, you can instead enjoy a relaxing holiday, where a professional skipper guides your Italian sailboat rental to all the best spots while you have nothing more to worry about than perfecting your tan.

What are the weather and sailing conditions like in Italy?

You will actually encounter many different climates across Italy, depending on where you go, but in general, the climate on the coast and in the islands surrounding Italy is a Mediterranean one. July and August are usually the hottest and sunniest months, but along the coast, you will typically encounter very good weather with nice temperatures for swimming, sailing and nautical activities from mid-April until mid-October.

When is the best time to go sailing in Italy?

Although the weather is generally best in July and August, the heat during these months can be a little intense, especially for those who aren’t used to it. For this reason, we would actually suggest sailing either from May to June or from September to October, when the heat is a little more tolerable. As an added bonus, there will also be fewer tourists and lower boat prices.
