Soak up the Shores of Sicily on a Superyacht Charter

Sicily in the summer is a carpet of flowers, a breath of orange blossom air and a gourmet capital that will entice you to savor the flavor of fresh seafood. From the sophisticated seaside shores of Palermo to the bubbling fire and brimstone beauty of Mount Etna, exploring the shores of Sicily on a superyacht charter is the only way to embrace the bounty of Italy.

MY Starfire

MY Starfire is a blessing of summer fun; the luxury superyacht charter offers an exquisite way to see Sicily in ease, class and sheer comfort. Imagine the freedom of exploring every single nook and cranny the island has to offer, spending balmy mornings Jet Skiing, snorkeling and seabobing with an exciting array of toys and tenders, and long lazy afternoons on deck eating the freshest seafood and sipping cool limoncello to celebrate. With Captain Sputh and his dedicated team the shores of Sicily are soaked in splendor.

Palermo
Everyone who glides into the pristine waters of Sicily will be greeted by the evocative sight of Palermo. This is the place to be for bustling morning markets, beautiful floral gardens, its mysterious underground crypts and its sure fire seaside charm. After an inspired breakfast on the sundeck you can head into the maze of the markets to buy brown paper bags filled with artisan cheeses, marinated olives, fresh fish and dozens of jeweled lemons for a picnic lunch along the pretty and well populated shoreline. After lunch be sure to pay homage to the wealth of museums, art galleries and soaring churches that adorn the town.

Mount Etna

Mount Etna
With its smoke stack haze on the horizon and its imposing presence, Mount Etna is still a highly active volcano and something worth admiring from the Jacuzzi of your superyacht or up close with a natural hike. When the weather is warm you can spend the mornings diving from your superyacht deck into the blissful warm waters before climbing up the treacherous hikes flooded with wildflowers to reach the lookout point of Rifugio Sapienza.

Taormina

Taormina
Mirrored turquoise waters and sugar soft shores are the two main reasons why superyachts seem to charter to Taormina. This is the ultimate glitzy beach destination in Sicily with Mount Etna looming in the background and picture pretty homes perched on the cliff. The 2nd century amphitheater carved into the cliffs with the ocean glimmering as the backdrop is a huge draw for historian lovers and romance seekers wanting to turn back a few pages of ancient history. Bathing in the marine rich waters, wandering the charming old town and indulging in fresh gelato on the beach is the best way to spend the days in Taormina.

Aeolian Islands

Aeolian Islands
The tiny collection of Aeolian Islands is a smorgasbord of bubbling mud baths, heated volcanic stone, deep cut craters and a dramatic sliced coastline that tempts luxury superyachts from across the globe. These islands manage to beautifully blend the wild touch with a hint of high class living ensuring that you get the best of both worlds when you cruise around the coast. Salina is filled to the brim with high class eateries and divine boutiques whereas Stromboli still resonates with the playful feel of its former Ingrid Bergman days. The Aeolian Islands are ideal for a few days of divine pampering, after lounging in the mineral rich mud baths and sinking into the steamy bliss of the thermal pools you can finish with a flourish as you enjoy a healing personal massage back on board your superyacht charter.
