Madeira is a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic, situated between the Azores and the Canaries. There are only two inhabited islands — Porto Santo and Madeira. The last is called the island of flowers and thousand faces. There are comfortable marinas and warm climate here where you can sail all year round. We will tell you the most important things about the yacht rent in Madeira.
During the trip around, the island can sometimes be misty or show the landscapes of extraordinary beauty. Yacht passages are short and non fatigue and on the coast.
Carnivals and the Columbus Festivals are held here and at the end of September hundreds of participants of the Madeira 950 regatta which starts in Livorno, Italy, arrive on the island.
There is an international airport which is an attraction itself. Half of the takeoff runway stands on a huge reinforced concrete pillars 50m high. People come here to arrange a cruise around the island or to use it as a start before crossing the Atlantic.
Renting yachts in Madeira and in neighboring Porto Santo is very popular, so it’s better to book a vessel for at least six months. There are five convenient marinas on two inhabited islands, the construction of new wharves is going on in Funchal. Yachtsmen often prefer the southern coast of Madeira because in the northern one the trade winds blow and rains occur more often.
The price of hiring a yacht depends on how much in advance it is booked. Please, leave a request for a vessel on our website. The Sailica manager will contact you to answer all the questions and to help in organizing the trip.
