Collapsible bags in place of large rigid suitcases are advised for ease of transport on and off the boat.Loading and unloading from the dingy can be a wet activity, a pair of shoes such as flip flops that you can get wet if we are landing on a beach.
During days on the water, you’ll want to be wearing light and comfortable clothing. As the vast majority of your time will be spent outside, prepare for elements - bring a light rain coat just in case, a hat to shield yourself from the sun, and a set of warm clothing. Throughout the week we may dine out at a nice restaurant, so bring gear that you’ll look nice in and suits your style.

Procida is a small island and one of the earliest inhabited towns in the Bay of Naples. We start our journey at Marina Corricella which is the yachting center on the island right downtown Procida. Unlike the nearby islands of Ischia and Capri, Procida is a traditional town with families carrying out traditions that have been with them for decades if not centuries. With the promenade running along the seawall of the marina, there are charming cafes and restaurants of the most local tradition. Fishermen walk down the streets after returning home from an afternoon’s catch. Food is of the highest quality with worn in pastel colors lining the buildings throughout town. Great place to stock up on local wines and fresh produce before we start the week’s journey.
Ischia is one of Amalfi’s lavish islands with a semi-tropical terrene with generous hot springs, which are said to have healing powers; this once active volcano is lined with lush forests and modern spas located throughout. With the Castle of Aregon of it’s western point giving a more than dramatic landscape wherever we anchor or walk on land. Evening streets are bustling with action with, Ischia is the largest island in the Bay of Naples and attracts a stream of visitors to its beaches. Inland, the hillside towns are more earthy and will reward walkers with some peace and quiet, while Sant’Angelo on the south coast remains relatively unscathed by tourism. It presents a charming scene with its twisting narrow streets, picturesque harbor and good beach.
A favorite location for the Sailing Collective, this weekend getaway dating back to the early Romans is lined with emerald green waters and dramatic limestone cascading coastline with a charming colorful town, it is hard not to like this paradise. Being the furthers island east, there is a true local feel in the air, a perfect Italian island culture disconnected from the rest of the Italian mainland. With scooters and cars to rent, we enjoy a day of rest and spend two days at this magical island, eating fresh caught fish and some of the finest pasta dishes in the lands.
Best known as the island to which emperor Augustus banished his daughter Julia the Elder in the 2 BC as a preventative measure to hid her excessive adultery behavior. A palace was constructed for her and she was able to live her life freely, behind closed doors where no one in Rome could see. The port has kept many of the ancient Roman structures and still using some of the original rainwater catchment systems throughout the island. A charming local island that is simple and true to its past.
The uninhabited island of Palmarola is the most westerly on the Pontine Islands. It is a rugged, beautiful island fringed with rocks that require the skipper of a Palmarola yacht charter to be ever-vigilant when navigating around the island. There is an anchorage in a small cove on the south side of the island and another in a cove partially protected by two islets on the north-west. With no facilities, a stop-over at Palmarola will appeal to those seeking solace and tranquility, needing nothing beyond the emerald green seas to swim in, a good book to read and a glass of a cooling drink in hand.
As the most famous of the islands in the Bay of Naples, Capri is has a picture-postcard sheer throughout the island. The town of Capri is lively with tourists coming and going with the traffic of ferries dropping tourist on day tours of the famous island. The Sailing Collective sails to the backside of the island where the real yachting-jetsetters lay their anchor against the backdrop of sheer limestone cliffs that rise out of the water lined with unfathomable mansions cut off from the rest of the island. A lively island and worth the visit, even though we prefer the more secluded local towns, Capri will not disappoint.
The Lagoon 450 has everything you could want in a cruising boat: Incredible performance under sail, wide open deck space for lounging, and an incomparable comfort in the saloon and the cabins. The wide hulls of Lagoon 450 offer comfortable cabins with larger floor space than other catamarans of the size. An airy saloon contains an open concept modern galley (kitchen) and comfortable seating all with stunning panoramic visibility of the natural beauty that you came for. The aft deck is covered by a hard top bimini so that there is always plenty of breezy shaded space for lounging when you are taking a break from the sun drenched foredeck. Up front the netted "trampoline" between the hulls is the ultimate place to enjoy this boat under sail with the sun beaming down and the water rushing below you.
The Bali 4.3 combines Catana's experience in performance with their understanding of the holidaymaker's accommodation needs. The designers have listened to their market and identified all the features that make for a great charter bareboat. The Bali catamaran contains living spaces rightly described as vast, and a rig configured with smooth sailing in mind.
