What You can expect from our company
Friendly and experienced advice
for booking your yacht in our office at Portoferraio.
Charter agreement and deposit
All charter agreements are entered into under German law. There is only one security deposit, which is 2.000 € for each yacht. The deposit can be reduced to 500 € by paying a non-refundable charge of 130 €.
Individual and non bureaucratic check-in
and check-out of your yacht at our base (in English).
Strict safety standards
All our yachts are equipped with liferaft, tender, VHF, chart plotter, distress flares, fire extinguishers, lifelines and safety harnesses, and of course a sufficient number of automatic-lifejackets. Our security equipment meets the requirements of the Cruising Department of the German DSV.
All our yachts come from the biggest European shipyards: Bénéteau, Jeanneau and Bavaria – all very reliable partners as far as service is concerned. The yachts are all uniformly equipped. Our warehouse includes practically all necessary spare parts, and we maintain our yachts professionally: a definite advantage for your holiday. All our older yachts (> 4 years) are subject to regular general overhauls and have new sails.
Equipment level similar to owner yachts - without extra charges
The basis price includes: furling genoa, gennaker, liferaft with certificate, tender with outboard engine, bimini top, VHF radio, world receiver, GPS with chart plotter, fresh water under pressure (hot/cold), shower (WC and cockpit), refrigerator, electric windlass, autopilot, stereo CD reader; some also have radar and heating.
Professionally maintained yachts
They need fewer repairs, which is better both for you and for us. And as far as your holiday is concerned, it is better to sail than to repair!
Ideal and varied sailing area
The island of Elba is a perfect starting point for cruises to the island of Giglio, Corsica and Sardinia, as well as to continental Italy and the Italian riviera.
Cars and parking
When you come to Elba, you can either leave your car on the continent at Piombino, in secure parking (about 8 €/day, fire and theft insurance included), or park it for free inside the marina on the island.
Sheets on board
For each berth there is a pillow with pillow-case and a blanket. We can also provide sheets for 10 €/set and towels for 5 €/set. Otherwise you can bring your own sleeping bag and/or sheets.
There is no-fault insurance up to the value of the yacht; public liability up to € 10 million for each event. Skipper and crew are included.
