Crewed charters

These exclusive yachts will whisk you from Sardinia to the Tuscan Archipelago, the Pontine Islands to the Bay of Naples, taking in the Amalfi Coast and Aeolian Islands en route.
Noi Toy is an 18-metre Toy Marine with three cabins that sleep six guests.

Noi Toy spends most of her season in the Tuscan archipelago and, on request, around Sardinia and Corsica.

She has four cabins, all en suite, and large vertical hull windows. Blue Deer is available for cruises from Naples to the Aeolian and Pontine Islands, and from Sardinia to Corsica and the Cote d’Azur.

Splashed in 2016, the Lagoon 620catamaran, Kaskazi Four guarantees an exclusive, comfortable cruising experience as her 19-metre length and roomy 10-metre beam provide plenty of space for five two-berth cabins. She is a particularly stable craft with a very high spec when it comes to water sports and activity equipment. Her expert crew also makes her ideal for exploring the stunning Aeolian Islands.

Myra, on the other hand, is an elegant steel-hulled gulet with a teak deck and lush mahogany interiors. She is captained in inimitable Italian style by Massimo Marci, who is famous for his knowledge of the waters of the South of Italy. Myra accommodates up to 12 passengers in sumptuous comfort in six cosy, air-conditioned en suite cabins.
The ketchPersistencewas built by the French yardCim in 1993 and then renovated in both 2006 and 2017. Stretching 30 metres LOA, her classic lines and interiors are coupled with extraordinary performance under sail. The result: unforgettable holidays in the South of Italy, Sardinia and Corsica.

Sea Prince is a motorsailer of just over 25 metres clothed in classic lines. Built by Abeking & Rasmussen in 1953, she was refit first in 2005 and then again in 2017.
