On our Naples yacht charter you can sail a truly historic coastline, from Sorrento and Positano to Ischia and Ponza – visiting nature reserves, sampling mouth-watering Mediterranean cuisine and experiencing the living history of ancient civilizations.

Ashore in Naples, you’ve the chance to climb the mighty Vesuvius and tour its smoking, volcanic crater with an impressive view out over the bay. Or you can wander the preserved treasures at Pompeii or Herculaneum.

Things to do in Naples

Naples sailing island ancient architecture sailboat charter

Explore Procida’s Chiaiolella Beach

Procida is a classic Italian fishing island that has been loved since the days of the Romans and Greeks. Corricella Bay is where you will find a pretty waterfront with colored houses, the perfect place to spend a night at anchor. Don’t miss Procida’s sunny Chiaiolella Beach with its shallow waters during your Naples yacht rental.

Enjoy the thermal activity on Ischia

Sail to Forio on Ischia’s north coast and spend the day exploring the city and swimming in Poseidon Thermal swimming pool – it’s one of the best things to do in Naples. Head to Sant’Angelo on Ischia with its hot sandy beaches where you can see steam rising from volcanic activity. The medieval Aragonese Castle can be reached by a causeway and is also worth a stop.

Visit the Roman port on Ventotene

The Pontine Island of Ventotene is famous for its Roman port and stunning natural beauty. You can also sail to the museum island of Santo Stefano and visit its prison that closed more than 70 years ago.

Marvel at Capri’s rock formations

Capri is known for its glamorous jet-set crowd, but when it comes to things to do in Capri, the Faraglioni rock formations are more than impressive. The three towering stacks jut out of water and one has an arch that you can kayak through. Locals have names for the stacks and they are home to wildlife.

See the wonder of the Amalfi Coast

There is so much to see, including Praiano’s beaches with its Furore Fiord, complete with a bridge that spans across the rocks for amazing views. On an Amalfi Coast yacht charter, make sure you sail to Sorrento and watch the sunset from Terrazza dell’Infinito, or see the colorful stacked houses in the cliffs at Positano.

Spend two days on Ponza

Ponza’s many bays, rocks and caves make this island a fantastic itinerary stop. In particular, you will want to spend time at Chiaia di Luna bay and Frontone. You’ll need two days in Ponza to allow time to visit the uninhabited island of Palmarola.

Why should I book with Dream Yacht?

  • A diverse fleet of yachts with a wide variety of models and manufacturers to suit every type of sailor.
  • We have 40+ exciting destinations and we’re a pioneer in finding new sailing grounds.

  • You’ll receive a warm and friendly welcome from our base teams who will share regional tips, recommendations and advice.
  • We’re also a trusted seller of new and used boats and an innovator in charter management options – sailing is our business.

What licenses do I need to hire a yacht and sail myself?

The skipper of a yacht has primary responsibility for the safety of the crew and yacht at all times. Many destinations require just relevant experience demonstrated by a sailing resume.

To charter in the Mediterranean, it is mandatory that you hold a sailing license recognized by the local port authorities for bareboat charters in Italy, Greece, Croatia, Spain, Malta, Montenegro and Turkey. Other destinations that require a license include Madagascar, Seychelles, Thailand, Brazil and Sweden. For Belize, the port authority will issue a certificate of competency and an application is made on arrival.

You must take your proof of competency and original certificate with you on your charter. We advise you to contact our team about your qualifications and destination requirements before booking.

By accepting the yacht contract you are confirming that you and/or members of your crew are capable and competent to sail the yacht in the conditions and cruising area of the charter. We reserve the right not to hand over the yacht if, after inspection, it is the opinion that the charterer is not, or may not be competent to be in charge of the vessel.

What is a skippered yacht charter?

A skippered yacht charter is when you rent one of our boats for you and your guests and a professional skipper sails it for you. No sailing experience is needed.

You will need to choose a yacht with a cabin for your skipper to sleep in as they are responsible for your yacht for the duration of your charter. We will find the skipper for you once you have found your perfect destination and yacht.

You will need to pay for your skipper’s food. You can invite the skipper to dine with you on board or out at a local restaurant.

What is the difference between crewed and by the cabin charters?

Our by the cabin charter charters offer exciting destination tours on a set itinerary crafted by our destination experts. You can book a double cabin and private bathroom and will share the boat with other guests who have booked the other available cabins. You will be looked after by a professional skipper and hostess with itineraries ranging from three to 11 nights. There is a set menu and included meals and drinks vary depending on location.

Can you tell me about your yachts?

Our super premier yachts are less than 12 months old from their first charter date, while premier yachts are less than three years old from their first charter date. Our yachts are well maintained and undergo regular, scheduled technical inspection.

In case of emergency, you can rely on our hotline, at any time, seven days a week. If you experience a technical failure affecting major and important parts of the yacht, we will repair the failure within four hours of receiving your call during working hours (8am to 5pm). If you lose more than four hours (during working hours), we will compensate you for one full day. If the repair takes more than one day, we will provide you with a similar boat or compensate you on a pro-rata basis. If restrictions to this guarantee apply in specific areas, this will be detailed during the charter check-in at the base.

Do I need insurance?

We highly recommend you arrange travel insurance in case you need to cancel for an unexpected reason to cover non-refundable deposits. Please make sure you have personal travel insurance that covers sailing.

We will insure the vessel throughout the charter with first-class insurers against all risks, to provide permission to charter as under contract terms and to cover third-party liability.

The following options are available in limited locations:

  • Security Deposit: This varies on the size of the boat and when the boat is returned without damage it is refunded.
  • Damage Waiver: The charterer agrees to pay a non-refundable damage waiver at the time of booking, as well as a reduced damage deposit on embarkation that is refundable upon completion of the charter should no damage occur.
