Sicily is the largest island with a coastline of 1500 km, washed by three seas  the Mediterranean, Tyrrhenian and Ionian. You can get to the island by ferry or plane. The nearest airports are in Palermo and Catania. During the highest season in Sicily, from July to August, the cost of renting a yacht is much higher than at other times. To book a yacht at a cheap price, you must make your reservation as early as possible.

There are many marinas along the island with moorings for 50 to 700 yachts.

Popular yacht rental locations:

  • Marina Villa Igiea in Palermo is a comfortable marina in Sicily with moorings for 400 yachts up to 75 meters long.
  • Portorosa Marina is a large marina opposite the Aeolian Islands. It is easy starting a travel since Portorosa Marina is between the international airports of Palermo and Catania. There are about 700 moorings for sailboats up to 40 meters long.
  • Capo di Orlando is a modern marina where 553 boats from 8 to 40 meters long can moor. Here you can get a technical yacht service and restock. There is also a large walking area with stores, restaurants and bars.
  • Marina di Cala del Sole is an equipped marina with a long list of services and a large entertainment area. There are 394 berths for yachts up to 70 meters in length.

Tips for a yacht charter in Sicily

To charter a yacht in Sicily, you need to specify a few details:

  1. Dates of yacht trips. Most charter companies provide boats for a term of 7 days, from Saturday to Saturday. If the trip is during the high season, it is better to book the yacht as far in advance as possible, 3-6 months before the start of the charter.
  2. Number of crew members. It allows figuring out the necessary number of cabins for people and yacht size.
  3. Rent a yacht with a captain or private bareboat charter having the required certification. For a bareboat charter, one of the requirements is to have a boating license recognized by the Italian Authorities: RYA, IYT, etc. Without license you can book the boat with a skipper.
  4. Choose a yacht in Sailica's catalog and send your request. A manager will contact you to confirm the reservation and clarify all the details.

Full recommendation. Great service & support. We chartered a Beneteau 45 in Athens for our trip around Peloponnes. Great service and perfect customer support from beginning to the end. Due to corona we had to postpone our trip - Sailica managed all the communication with the charter agency and negotiated a great new deal for us. This was already the 2nd time we charted with Sailica and it won't be the last time. Full recommendation

I took Dufour Grand Large 560 at Croatia using online yacht rental service sailica.com It's easy to use their mobile app with fair prices and enough quantity of boats which suits to my parameters. Their managers assisted me through whole communication with charter company. It was pleasant to receive a small gift – free of charge transfer from airport to marina. We didn't request it and appreciate their overexpected level of service.

Amazing 1 week in Turkey! I sailed with Sailica on a tour in the gulf of Fethiye in Turkey. Overall it was a great experience and a great crew, even if I did not know them before. The area is amazingly beautiful and if you go in April you can avoid the crowds. The skipper was very proficient and knew what he was doing. Highly recommended!

Great company! The guys answered all our questions which were very important since it was our first sailing experience. Moreover, they advised us not only on a charter but also on the tour itself. This was not the responsibility of the company, but we needed help and the company managers helped us for free. I highly recommend the team. The guys are really reliable, proactive and customer-oriented.

Excellent trip to Croatia! The trip was organized on an excellent level since the very beginning - from the yacht search to the trip itself. The team was fast and responsive. Highly recommended to everyone who wants to hang out with family on a beautiful yacht or catamaran!
