Types of yachts available for a charter in Italy
There are two main categories to sort the yachts, crew and the number of hulls. Crew can include crewed yachts or captain only yachts.
Captain Only boats Italy
Captain only yachts are more budget friendly, as they only have a skipper. Note that the skipper needs a cabin, so you are usually looking at the cabins you need + 1 cabin for the captain.
Sailing yachts Italy
Sailing yachts are a great option for Italy, as the distances allow for smooth sailing. With steady breeze and virtually an unlimited number of destinations, sailing in Italy is a great choice. Sailing yachts are usually monohulls with various lengths.
Catamarans are a family friendly boat with two hulls and a large size of deck. Most of the catamarans (all except power catamarans) do have sails, so you can still cruise into the sunset. The most fun part about catamarans is the fact that there is much more room, so dinners or afternoon cocktails are definitely different. At the same time, getting in and out of a catamaran is generally easier, which makes the catamarans a clear choice for larger groups and families.
