Explore the sunny mediterranean waters, letting our boats take you to remote anchorages away from the tourist hustle and bustle
The Mediterranean Sea is bordered by countries such as Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Malta and Greece. This part of the world is not only home to crystal clear waters and sandy beaches but is also oozing in rich culture and ancient history. The nature of its geographical location makes for the perfect sailing winds.
The Croatian coastline is home to thousands of islands and inlets which are still mostly uninhabited and range from barren lands to islands rich in greenery, protected by National Park status. Walk through the quaint harbour towns with streets lined with beautifully maintained Romanesque and Renaissance buildings and Venetian architecture, basking in sunshine and history. The coastal town of Pula is home to the best preserved Roman ruins outside of Italy and its impressive Venetian architecture is a sight not to be missed. Home to the last Roman amphitheatre with a complete circle wall (27 BC-68 AD), it’s one of the last of its type in the world and is one of Croatia’s best kept architectural secrets. Pula was part of Italy until 1947 so the culture and cuisine here have a distinctly Italian influence.
Greece is made up of thousands of islands, each with their own history and personality. Many of the smaller islands are uninhabited and our boats are able to anchor in these sheltered bays, offering opportunities to get off the beaten track. Rich in history Greece is often seen as the cradle of Western civilisation, with ancient ruins in abundance.
As with all the coastlines of the Mediterranean, the waters are crystal clear and are perfect for snorkelling and diving. The beaches are mostly white sand with some nearer the Volcanoes, a shimmery silver in colour. Marine life in these waters is rife; expect to see common dolphins swimming in the bows, whales gliding on the horizon and turtles bobbing in the surf.
Learning the ropes of traditional sailing is a great challenge for sea-dogs and landlubbers alike. The rewards are simply breathtaking: being aboard a ship cascading over ocean-blue waves is a thrilling experience for all ages. All your hard work pays off in other ways too, with visits to beautiful anchorages, crystal clear coves perfect for snorkelling and sandy beaches to make the most of that lovely Mediterranean sunshine.
Perhaps one of the best parts of staying on a yacht in the Med is the still evenings, where the peaceful little coves in which the boats anchor become an astronomer’s dream. The star-studded sky seems infinite from the deck, where you can lie for as long as you like; observing comets, shooting stars, and the silvery moon, which often lights a shimmering path across the darkened waters.
All the ships in our fleet are very comfortable, offering you everything you need throughout your time on board. The crew endeavour to source local delicacies where possible, you’ll often see the chef leap offshore as soon as the sails are down in search of the evenings treat!
