What type of boat better accommodates you


Here are the type of yachts you can choose from for a sailing vacation:

  • Motor yacht 
  • Catamaran
  • Sailboat

Each type of boat has its pros and cons. It would depend on how many days you spend aboard, what kind of comforts you are looking for, the number of guests if it’s a family charter and your preferences. Please share your thoughts, experiences, and dream vacation with our Charter Managers to propose all the best options in Sardinia, with related costs and prices for chartering a yacht.


If you have previous (and sound) sailing experience, a resume, and a valid sailing license, you can rent the boat without a skipper. Keep in mind that in Italy, sailboats and catamarans can usually be rented without skippers up to 50/55 feet. While a motor yacht always comes with a crew aboard.


What type of charter are you looking for?


To propose the ideal boat for your sailing holidays, respecting the budget and crew’s requests, decide the type of charter: do you need a skipper or not? Are you renting a fully crewed yacht to receive the 5-star service you deserve?

Here are the types of charter you can opt for when you rent a boat:

  • Fully crewed charter (captain + crew)
  • Boat with skipper (bareboat + skipper)
  • Bareboat charter (without skipper)
  • Cabin charter (shared)

A fully crewed yacht has stable members who constantly work aboard all season/year. The crew is usually composed of more than one member: the Captain, the hostess/cook, or captain deckhand and hostess/cook for up to 20 meters (65 feet) yacht. The number of crew members depends on the yacht’s feet, so the more significant is the yacht, the greater the number of crew members.


A bareboat charter is when you rent a yacht without a captain because you or one of your friends has a sailing license (or if it’s not required in your country of origin, you already have enough sailing experience to drive the boat by yourself). On the other hand, all the boats available in the bareboat can also be rented with a captain, hiring a skipper to drive the boat for you. The skippers drive the boat and take care of the external cleaning. If you are looking for more dedicated services, as internal cleaning, a chef aboard, etc., then you can add a hostess or a cook.

A cabin charter is synonymous with a shared charter, usually available aboard gullets: you rent your cabin, and the boat comes with other people.

Let’s start talking about early booking discounts: how to get them?

When you confirm and book in advance a boat in Sardinia, you can receive an early booking discount of up to 25% off, depending on when you sign and wire the first amount due to hold the charter. Obviously, the sooner you book, the higher discount you get on the rate. For example, if you book 12 months before the beginning of the charter, you indeed get higher values.


On the other hand, if you like to wait until the end to book your yacht charter in Sardinia, then the last-minute option is waiting for you! Booking a few days before the departure, you would choose between the still available boats, so the variety available will certainly be limited. That’s why Your Boat Holiday strongly recommends checking the availabilities and proposals in advance in order to suit your wishes exactly!

Renting a yacht from 10 but preferably for 14 days, you usually gain prolonged period discounts. In this case, we negotiate with the owner of the yacht to apply a discount % on the second week or, in some cases, on the whole period. Mostly, the deal starts from 5% up to 15%.

N.B.: Discounts are not combinable.
