Chartering a Yacht in Sardinia


Sardinia is one of the most popular destinations in the Mediterranean for sailing. This beautiful island in Italy is full of hidden gems with its small coves and quiet and secluded bays. By renting a boat in Sardinia, you will be able to fully explore these small paradises that are far from the usual tourist beaches known to all. La Maddalena is the island’s largest port and is the ideal starting point for your boating trip around the island, you could also start your trip by renting a boat in Porto Rotondo.


Only 20 minutes from the Sardinian port of Palau, you’ll find yourself in paradise surrounded by translucent waters. Stop at the main center of Costa Smeralda, Porto Cervo, and admire its beautiful bays with incredibly turquoise waters. Only a few kilometers further you will discover the island of Caprera, where we advise you to anchor at the port of Porto Palma. The island is full of beautiful and unusual landscapes, boasting fine sand beaches and pink granite rock. Sardinia yacht charter is popular during the summer, rent your boat in Sardinia in advance so you can enjoy the sailing.


When to Sail in Sardinia 


The sailing season in Sardinia follows the typical Italy boat rental season with May to September being the high season. Most sailors will acknowledge that the best time to sail is in the later summer as the water becomes the perfect temperature. The month of October and even May can be a bit cooler so if you want to experience Sardinia's signature weather, you should go in June, July, August and the beginning of September. The winds are present throughout the season and are quite strong so the waters are geared for those with some experience. While being able to see the beautiful weather of the months of July and August, also keep in mind this is peak season and tourists will flood up on Sardinia. If you don't mind this, then it's a perfect time to travel. Also keep in mind that if you're chartering for a week, you'll be able to explore on your own and find the hidden coves and beaches away from the masses. Rent a boat in La Maddalena for an amazing sailing holiday

For motorboats, the price will depend on your specific needs. In Sardinia, you'll have the choice of renting a motorboat based on your desired activity. We recommend playing with the filters until you find the boat that best suits your needs. For all motorboats, we recommend booking the boat at minimum of 2 months in advance. Sardinia is one of the most popular destinations so be sure to plan your trip well ahead.

If you want to charter a yacht in Sardinia, you will need a license to rent a boat. If you're from an EU member state, your license will be automatically valid. If you're from outside the EU, we recommend getting an ICC which is validated by the United Nations. In addition, you will be asked to provide a nautical CV describing your previous experience and what type of boats you handled. 


For motorboats, you will need a license if you rent a boat with more than 40 horsepower. Anything below 40 can be rented without a license. 


Boating in Sardinia 


In Sardinia, you'll find some of the best coasts to sail around. You'll find different characteristics depending on what part of the island you're on. If you're in the north, then rent a boat in Olbia and see the beautiful views or you can also rent a boat in Porto Cervo. A historic city in Sardinia, Olbia finds a way to keep its small village vibe with architectural wonders and views that will blow you away. If you're starting from the south, charter a boat from Cagliari and see the picturesque blue waters and the limestone rocks. The hills in the city centre provide some of the best views on the island so be sure you take advantage of Cagliari both on land and on the waters. Sardinia yacht charter with SamBoat will give you an incredible experience.
