Exclusive Superyacht charter Ponzine Islands itinerary



For all those keen on alternative yachting destinations, where you can experience best of local culture, cuisine, history and events, there is one Italian region that is pretty much unexplored by international guests visiting this fabulous country.  Most of the mega yachts and in general luxury boats tend to congregate or are chartered out in North East Sardinia around resorts such as Porto Cervo, Porto Rottondo and Olbia or indeed around Island of Capri, Naples and Positano within the Amalfi coast and indeed Italian Riviera around Positano which is also popular ONE WAY charter stop for those starting out or finishing alongside French Riviera and in particular Gulf of St Tropez and Cap d’Antibes. 

The best alternatives to that, Aeolian Islands around Sicily, Messina Strait with Siracusa, Catania and around Sicily and to some extent, at least for Italian and German tourists by majority Island of Elba and Tuscany. To avoid crowds and to ensure you do have a chance to experience best of Italy, you should consider luxury yacht charter out of Naples, but than turn North, North West towards Islands of Ponza and Ischia, or more accurately towards Isole Ponziane as Italians would say.  You would than explore remote, uninihabited or as they case may be with Ponza, luxury retreats.  Islands of Ventotene, Polmarola, Zannone and others await for those who wish to self-isolate, escape and yet still enjoy Italian lifestyle par-excellence.

Croatia is one of the latest mega yacht charter destinations.

It is becoming increasingly popular both thanks to a larger number of yachts frequenting in the Adriatic and the opening of a new super yacht marina in Tivat, Montenegro which is only hours away from the spectacular town of Dubrovnik but also because of a sheer number of untouched natural harbours and plenty of remote, yet well served, picturesque island towns.

A land of 1,120 islands, Croatia offers an amazing 3,500+  miles of coastline (2,500 of which belong to the islands).  The Dubrovnik is the most popular and most spectacular location indeed.  Super luxury villas, hotels and stylish, Michellin stared restaurants will await you here as much as plethora of festivals and events geared towards visiting tourists.

On top, sailing around Elafiti Archipelago or towards National Park on Island of Mljet or further South towards lovely historic town of Cavtat or Montenegro is what every super yacht charter client should do.

Other most popular locations for luxury crewed yacht charters in Croatia are celebrity island of Hvar and UNESCO town of Trogir with the neighbouring city of Split offering historical palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian as the best tourist hotspot. 

Croatia offers a number of other fascinating places to discover on your private luxury crewed yacht charter.  Many Croatians will know that there are only a few places in the world blessed with nearly 3000 hours of sunshine that still truly deserve the description of being”unspoiled.” The long chain of rugged islands of Croatia’s mountainous coast makes this a super yacht charter haven as neither is the coastline overbuilt like Spain, neither protected or secluded as that of South of France.  It is therefore considered to be among the best in the world as the access is free almost anywhere and lovely deep channels, plethora of secluded bays and huge number of anchorages and a stable climate attract many a super yacht charter enthusiast to Croatia.

Finally, the sailing in Croatia offers little dangers and one wil neither encounter sharks or dangerous sting rays nor high waves or big seas, let alone long distance routes across the open sea unless one chooses to visit Venice or North Croatia and Dubrovnik in a short period of time.

In general, all clients will get their own privately tailored itinerary offering you chance to either enjoy privacy onboard your charter yacht and in case you will prefer untouched nature, wild beauty, generous and fragrant vegetation and remote hiking trails not visited by many. Alternatively, apart from viewing plenty of cliffs and caves, rocky inlets, fine pebble beaches and majestic bays, we can also take you to the hotspots for shopping and partying being during the day or in the night.With many imperial powers setting their foot on these grounds, you can also opt for a cultural super yacht charter tour, exploring the centuries of occupation by foreign empires. The Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, in Split, has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, just like many other locations along the coast. On top, many historical residences and imperial fortresses that speckle the Adriatic landscape are considered some of the finest examples of intact ancient or medieval architecture. Ancient and medieval towns rise from the clear blue sea creating stunning impressions which is what makes Croatia so unique and one of the best super yacht charter destinations in the world. 

One aspect of Croatia is less known in the world and that is the fact that Croatians are very modern in the way they dress and in the way they adopt latest pop culture or technological trends.  This makes Croatia equally interesting today as well as tomorrow and the country and especially the most visited coastal regions is in constant change.  The preferred café and restaurant culture prevails, yet this fine land of home made wine and olive groves, home made cheese and an abundance of fresh fish, has always successfully borrowed influences from the trade routes that have passed its shores for centuries and is also nowadays adopting latest trends the moment the do happen in London or NEW York.  It is therefore not surprising to find latest yachts, super cars or super yachts indeed showing off on the Croatian coast before they are even available in the most sought after British, US or Russian and German trade shows.
We therefore invite you to charter a super yacht with us as our knowledge of Croatia charter yachts, local crews, specific yacht charter destinations and best cruising itineraries is unparalleled. We regularly and personally inspect each yacht, meet the captains in private as well as in business roles, sample the chefs’ cuisine and evaluate the service offered by each yacht crew.
