The best time to visit Sardinia is during the summer months when you can enjoy wonderfully warm temperatures and sun-drenched days.

No matter what time of year you want to rent a luxury motor boat in Sardinia, Moran Yacht & Ship can help.

Sardinia is a popular Italy yacht charter destination, so for the best selection of vessels, you should book as far in advance as possible. However, it’s still possible to book last-minute getaways, as long as you are flexible around the charter vessel and dates. If you want to book a luxury yacht charter in Sardinia, contact the charter experts at Moran Yacht & Ship.

The number of crew members on a luxury yacht charter will differ, and you will typically find more crew the larger the vessel. Generally, the crew on a luxury yacht includes:

  • Steward(ess): Attend to guests, handle housekeeping duties, and provide excellent service.
  • Deckhands: Assist with various tasks, including handling ropes, water toys, and general maintenance.

For smaller yachts, expect a crew of around 4 to 5, while the largest superyachts will often boast a crew above 20.
