Discover one of the most beautiful coasts of the Mediterranean along Sardinia and onto Corsica on luxury yacht Rhea.
Begin your holiday in the Gulf of Marinella on the North Eastern Coast of the island of Sardinia in Italy before sailing your way up to the coast of Corsica.
Famous for its clear emerald coloured waters, the Gulf of Marinella is the perfect backdrop for boarding luxury yacht Rhea. Once boarded, you will sail up the coast to the natural park of the La Maddalena archipelago, where the sea shines in the most beautiful shades of blue. Swim the warm waters, wander the ancient cobbled streets whilst soaking up that glorious Meditteranean culture and sunshine.
Your next port of call will be the impressive harbour of Bonifacio on the South coast of Corsica. Greeting you with its dramatic granite cliff line, this French harbour town is a lively marina oozing in history. Its medieval citadel sits proudly overlooking the sea with 13th-century architecture and history tucked around every corner with the L’Escalier du Roi d’Aragon which are 187 ancient steps carved into the cliff face.
Continue sailing further North along the beautiful Corsican coast to the French port city of Bastia. Bars and restaurants line the Old Port, with Terra Nova the centuries-old citadel and ramparts circling the city. Visit the Church of St. Jean-Baptiste that grandly rises from behind the old town. The Cathedral of Ste. Marie sits on the outskirts of the town and is well worth a wander too, filled with ancient paintings and marble statues.
Rhea offers daily cabin service, a rich breakfast buffet, a light 2-course lunch at noon, coffee, tea and cake in the afternoon, and a 3-course dinner in the evening. Upon arrival, you will receive a welcome drink and on the last evening, the Captain’s Dinner will be served. One evening a week, all guests eat at their own expense on land to get to know the local cuisine.
With Rhea as your base, great food included and some beautiful bucket list locations; this is an Italian holiday experience of a lifetime and one not to be missed!

Guest berths: 26 Rig: Bermudan Ketch
Like her sister Chronos, Rhea was built and designed in Bodrum, Turkey but is registered in Holland and spends her days sailing the Mediterranean and Caribbean. The youngest in our fleet, Rhea was purpose built as a charter vessel in 2016 and finished in 2017 as a two-masted, 54m staysail ketch.
This beautiful Ketch was designed by Klaus Röder who based his design on a classic yacht whilst keeping up with the modern day ketch; built for performance sailing and guest comfort. The classic rig of a Bermuda Ketch with a large boom was conceptualised and designed by Klaas Huizinga.
Built with luxury in mind, the outline on deck is of teak and mahogany with plenty of space to sun-bath, read a book and enjoy the views. All the sails are electronically retractable, so no need to learn the ropes here. (The crew are, however, more than happy for guests to get involved with the operating and sailing of Rhea as much as they would like!)
An admiralty ladder provides the perfect place to jump off into the warm Caribbean waters, have a swim and climb back aboard with ease. Rhea also offers her guests the options of using her water skiing, wake-board, tube riding, banana boat, 2 kayaks, 2 stand up Paddleboards, snorkelling equipment and even a sail dinghy (QubaRS)
The deckhouse offers its very own small bar whilst below decks offers still more space to relax with another dining area, as well as her on-deck dining area. Her private cabins, offering both queen size beds and single bunks, all have air-conditioning and en-suite bathrooms.
The professional crew consists of the Skipper, first mate, mechanic, bosun, cook and 4 stewards, so you will most certainly be looked after during your time aboard Rhea.
