Holiday season starts in April and lasts till October.
If you have a valid Skipper license & VHF license, no you don't need to hire a Skipper! What is needed is to ensure your qualifications. Send us an email of your Skipper license & VHF license to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to your departure, as we need to register you with the relevant Port Authorities.
Please note: A photo of your Skipper’s license (taken on your mobile device) can be sent through to us prior to your departure, however you will need to provide the original (hard copy) license and/or certificate upon check in and carry this with you throughout the duration of your Yacht Charter. This process helps to avoid any delays on your departure day, and is a legal requirement of chartering a vessel in Italy.
For people with skipper the experience is very satisfied since all skippers have good knowledge of places to go to and stops that need to be made to help you explore the most. For people renting a boat themselves a good suggestion is to come prepared and find the nicest route for your holidays.

Mooring buoys (estimated 30-40 Euros per night*) offer seclusion and privacy. Marinas (40-130 Euros per night*) have cafes, restaurants, showers & toilet facilities along with shore power and fresh-water refills for the yacht. In our experience a mixture of both options gives the best balance through the week for most groups. We find overnighting in locations that are a little further from marinas and towns are generally more affordable. *Please note: The cost of mooring buoys and marinas are estimations and are based on a 40ft yacht. The size of your vessel and date may affect the price of mooring buoys and marinas.
Email us at best so we both have written answers. This is helpful and most easy to use to clear any questions about your trip. You will have one contact up till last week before the holidays from that point on you will have direct contact to the skipper and or owner of the vessel.
