The prices for a yacht charter really depends on the type and the size of the boat you plan on renting. The price may also vary depending on the amount of time you charter the yacht for. Indeed, some owners will discount more than 1 week long charters.
We strongly recommend that you charter your boat well before your trip starts because of the price increase when the demand is higher during the high season.
Yes, you’ll need a licence if you want to hire a boat in Sardinia, you will also have to bring a nautical CV explaining your sailing experiences. This rule also depends on the boat that you hire. For instance, motorboats with engines less powerful than 40 HP don’t require you to have a boating licence. If you have a licence from another European union country it will probably be valid in Sardinia as well.
If you don’t have a boating certificate, there are a few options: The first thing you could do is pass a boating course and obtain a licence. We recommend the ICC which is valid in most European countries.
If you don’t have a licence nor do you have the time, you can still charter a yacht with a skipper. A skipper will drive the boat and show you Sardinia’s top spots to explore.
