A Prima Vista: The Italian Riviera Onboard Italian Charter Yachts
The splendor of the Italian Riviera is unrivalled as a charter yacht destination. From the pretty pastels of Postiano to the lemon scented shores of the Cinque Terre, la dolce vita is there to be enjoyed both on deck and ashore. From buying beautiful Italian fashion wares to dining on fresh seafood suppers washed down with sweet white wines and limoncello, roaming the coastal walking paths, and plunging into the blue bliss of the Mediterranean – a charter adventure along the Riviera is a must.
To celebrate the unrivalled charm of the Italian Riviera, we have highlighted some exceptionally designed superyachts to take you there. From buttery soft Italian leather and chrome interiors to sleek and sensuous lines, these Italian charter yachts are sure to be love a prima vista!
Standing at a sleek 45 meters, the Flying Dragon is perfectly purveyed proof that blending Italian sass with Asian style is an award-winning blend. The interior is a vision from Gian Marco Campanino and the yacht was launched by Italian shipyard Admiral Tecnomar.
Her light blue hull provides a stunning contrast next to the turquoise hues of the waters of Capri and her dragon motif is certainly a conversation starter when moored at the Marina di Portofino Genova. 10 guests can stretch out in the 5 lavish cabins adorned with dark wood, red onyx and sink down soft carpets. The owner’s suite is drenched in opulence boasting its own private balcony for morning coffee overlooking the shimmering sights of Mount Vesuvius.
The main deck is all about sophisticated seating and the sun deck is more a private terrace overlooking the sea. A private jacuzzi is the finishing flourish for this elegant charter yacht.
The 50 meter Ouranos was named the most silent yacht ever certified by RINA – making her a swift and serene choice from Admiral for those wanting to drift along the Italian coastline in style. 12 guests can mingle without treading on each other’s toes in the 6-roomed superyacht.
Ouranos is one of the best entertaining yachts carved from Italian design, with 5 separate lounging spaces and a swim up bar on the sundeck – this is the perfect choice for those wanting glorious soirees beneath the stars. The three-deck yacht is a vision of tasteful minimalism with light and airy spaces, warm teak woods, and the very best in Italian fabrics to highlight her heritage.
The two caterpillar engines work in harmony to push her to an impressive 17.0 knots and with room for 12 crew members, your guests will want for nothing.
The ravishing Rhino A captures that slightly sporty side of Italian design and this reflects in her well-orchestrated 26 meters of space. 8 guests can comfortably sail away with 3 crew and 4 rooms, making it an exceptional choice for those who prefer a more intimate cruising experience and the ability to charter to more off the beaten track spots.
Just because she boasts a little less space than her bigger sisters doesn’t mean that Rhino A feels in any way like a compromise. Inside, she brims with sunlight and her tasteful main saloon is a vision of warm blonde woods and white leather.
Al fresco dining can be enjoyed on the sundeck and down on the sundeck there is another more intimate outdoor dining space along with sun bathing spots for those who want to soak up the rays. The paddle boards, snorkeling equipment, and wake board also promises hours of fun along the Amalfi Coast.
Veni Vidi Vici
I came, I saw, I conquered – Veni Vidi Vici is a yacht that is sure to be immortalized. With space for 11 guests, 5 bedrooms, and 6 crew, there is no corner of the Italian Riviera that this sumptuous superyacht can’t cover. The stateroom and interior are spectacular – all polished wood, spotlights and splashes of silver. The use of color throughout the yachts design certainly reflects the finest of Italian touches.
Her outside spaces take relaxing on the seas very seriously, ensuring that seating areas are as comfortable and classy as possible. Jet Skis, tenders and other toys are a firm reminder that chartering a superyacht is about living the good life. The sliding roof in the salon is a spectacular design highlight for those who want their desert with a ceiling of stars.
41 meters and visually striking, Dragon beings a touch of the exotic to the waterways of Europe. This creation from Palmer Johnson and award winning Italian designer Nuvolari Lenard delivers an intoxicating contemporary style, calling on African woods, white onyx, and marble to steal the show.
10 guests, 5 cabins, and 7 crew members seems like the perfect number for a refined yet celebratory adventure along the pretty pastel shorelines of Postiano. Open spaces flow gorgeously into each other and the generous salon is a vision of oversized designer sofas and beautiful wooden dining spaces.
The aft deck wraps around the whole circumference of the yacht, making morning strolls to the bow an absolute joy. A clever use of space makes the al fresco space stand out – with neat touches like the jacuzzi turning into a table and the sunbathing pads turning into space for tender storage. As the Dragon is a shallow draft of 1.8m it means she can also rock up to smaller and more intimate marinas.
