Live Availability & Online Bookings

There is no better way to discover the second largest island in the Mediterranean than by sailing your own yacht. Our base is located in Olbia – the Northeastern coast of Sardinia – and is ideally situated for exploring a range of enticing destinations.

Explore the rugged shores and sandy white beaches of the Sardinian coastline where Seafarers will be spoilt for choice in terms of picturesque, sheltered anchorage and snorkelling/diving spots. Sail along the chic Costa Smeralda – glitzy haven of the rich and famous – and discover the many islands of the Maddalena Archipelago. You could even navigate the Strait of Bonifacio for the charming south coast of Corsica.

Sardinia bareboat charter

Sardinia lies in the heart of the Mediterranean and is swept by prevailing Northeasterly winds which are ideal for sailing and help to keep humidity at bay during the long, hot summer months. Visitors will enjoy average temperatures of 26-30ºC in the summer and mild winters. The area is perhaps not suitable for beginners. You can expect Force 5-6 winds of 20-25 knots. Sailors should be cautious of reefs when sailing and must be careful not to anchor in prohibited, protected bays.

Sardinia stay options

Stay options


Combine your sailing holiday with a stay in the distinctively more Italian-feeling French island of Corsica. Stroll around the historic Citadel of Bonifacio and wander through the narrow streets of the old town in search of independent boutiques and local wines.


Often overlooked by visitors, in favour of the glamourous Costa Smeralda, Olbia is a refreshingly authentic and affordable Sardinian town bursting with rich heritage and ambient, traditional restaurants. Visit the lively hub of Corso Umberto for shopping and cafes or the more low-key Piazza Matteotti.   


Day 1

Fly to Olbia and transfer 40 minutes by road to the yacht base Marina di Olbia.

Day 2

Marina di Olbia to Island of Tavolara (10nm) – Begin your exploration of the Maddalena Archipelago National Park by sailing to the Island of
Tavolara. Enjoy a swim stop in the crystal clear waters surrounding this majestic limestone landmark acting as a natural lighthouse, jutting a mighty
565m above sea level.

Day 3

Cala di Volpe, Porto Cervo (12nm, 5nm) – Visit the stunning Cala di Volpe (Bay of the Fox) before sailing 5 miles north to Porto Cervo Marina
(booking essential!) for a taste of high-class luxury in the area known as the undisputed capital of the Maddalena Archipelago. Treat yourselves to
dinner at the well-regarded Hotel Cala di Volpe.

Day 4

Caprera Island (6nm) – Visit the island famously bought by Guiseppe Garibaldi. You can visit his house which is now a museum.  

Day 5

Bonifacio (Corsica) (23nm) – Experience some of the best sailing in the Mediterranean across the Strait of Bonifacio where winds funnel between
the islands of Sardinia and Corsica. Enjoy spectacular views of the natural harbour and the cliffs of Bonifacio

Day 6

Budelli Island (10nm) – Sail to the heavily protected Budelli Island and see the beautiful pink coral sand. The island offers plenty of safe anchorages.

Day 7

Maddalena Island (8nm) – The largest and liveliest island in the archipelago. Either opt for the port of Cala Gavetta, home to a small, rustic town or
one of a choice of nearby unspoilt bays and coves.

Day 8

Olbia (30nm) – Sail back to Olbia for disembarkation.

The tourist port of Marina di Olbia is located on the eastern coast of Sardinia, ideal for exploring the coast to the north, including the La Maddalena island group and Corsica to the north, should you choose. The marina has all the facilities you would expect from a modern purpose built marina. The airport is just twenty minutes away, making for a short transfer at the start and end of your charter.
