Italy is a hotspot for yachting every summer! Now with the new rules of the Italian government coming into play pre-booking your charter in October for the next season can save you 15%. We explain how and why.
Last chance to book your Italy yacht charter with a 15.4% discount!
Last year, the Italian government decided to end the reduced VAT rate on yacht charters. This means that the VAT due on yacht charters over 24 meters taking place in Italy is now the full 22% instead of the previous reduced rate of 6.6% - a substantial difference.
This new law will take effect on the 1st of November and any charter contracts signed before this date can still enjoy the benefit of the reduced VAT rate, regardless of the actual charter date.
Every season Italy is a hot destination, pre-booking your charter for next season can save you a significant amount when booking now in October.
To make sure your holidays are hassle free we have introduced flexible contracts which allows you to reschedule & be able to get a full refund in case of travel restrictions.
For our central agency fleet, we have been working closely with our yacht owners to put in place and include special conditions in every new charter contract signed.
Such provisions include giving the charterer the option to reschedule the charter to another period at no extra charge. That of course depends if the length of the booking or the season pricings change, based on the mutual agreement between the charterer and the owner.
Alternatively, the charterer will have the option to cancel the charter, in some instances up to 72h before its start.
The above are conditional on the areas where the yacht is based or will cruise during the charter being subject to government-imposed travel restrictions. We believe the combination of rescheduling and cancellation gives a lot of flexibility to the charterer.
As the conditions vary from yacht to yacht, please contact us so that we can find the appropriate solution for your situation.

Positano – Inhabiting a spectacular stretch of shoreline, Positano is an old fishing hamlet populated with sand splashed cafes and boutiques. A great isle for kicking back and enjoying the seashore and water sports. The Galli Islands lie just offshore, and we’ll stop here for lunch.
Amalfi – Rich in history and myth, Amalfi is the land of everlasting Spring. Hercules buried his beloved nymph “Amalfi” here as it was the most wonderful place on the planet. An old seafaring center in the 9th century, the Cathedral of St. Andrew still remains. A stroll through the city shows museums, convents, piazzas, fountains, and historical churches.

Salerno - Salerno is considered the capital of the Amalfi Coast and is located along the Tyrrhenian Sea. Salerno is a great place to explore the narrow streets, beautiful towns and villages, medieval churches and house while taking in the scenery and sampling the delicious food and wine bars, before setting sail.
Sorrento – is perched on a terraced ledge over the sea, surrounded by the countryside of citrus groves and olive trees. A labyrinth of alleys and steps and lovely beaches and the picturesque seaport join the village beneath. Sorrento has been attracting tourists since Roman times and its name hails from the mythical mermaids who tempted his crew and Ulysses in the Odyssey with their siren’s tune. The city has lively shopping, an unspoiled old quarter, lovely walks, and pizza you could purchase by the meter.
Pompeii – A day trip to Pompeii from the ports of Naples or Sorrento is highly recommended. Excavated over the years, it is one of the most significant archaeological sites in the world, giving a whole view of a Roman town with basilicas, baths, its temples, theaters, and gladiator training stadium.
Paestum: A train trip from Sorrento will bring history enthusiasts with one of the best collections of Greek temples everywhere on earth to the finely preserved ruins of Paestum.
Nisida - is a volcanic islet of the Flegrean Islands archipelago, in southern Italy. It lies at a very short distance from Cape Posillipo, just north of Naples; it is now connected to the mainland by a stone bridge.
