Please do not bring any hardshell suitcases on board. They are difficult to store. In our experience you don’t need that much close either during your sailing trip.

What kind of shoes can I bring on the yacht?

We don’t allow shoes on the yacht, as it’s very hard to remove the markings from the white deck. If you do bring shoes for the yacht, makes sure they do not have dark soles underneath.

Of course you can use other shoes when we go out in the evening during restaurant visits.

  • star rating  I loved the whole experience. The only thing I would change is the part where it was advised that it is customary for the guests to pay for the crews meals in the restaurants.
    Listen to the tip about luggage. I took way too much in a suitcase which was far too big for the cabin and only wore half the clothes inside it.

  • star rating  The best experience ever. Sailing with Vincent and Vallery has been such an incredible week. They were super organised, knew what they were doing and super helpful in suggesting hiking or places to see or visit once we got to different marinas. And not to mention the food. Vallery is such an incredible chef. She proposed to us different healthy meals, so yummy and filling. I am so looking forward to summer 2023 to go on the next sailing adventure with them. Elisa

  • star rating  This trip was hands down my favorite traveling experience! Vincent and Vallery were so welcoming and friendly; they have created a dream itinerary that had us swimming in the clearest, bluest waters and visiting the most charming little towns along the way. You really can’t beat the scenery! Val is an amazing chef, making delicious meals for us twice a day from fresh local Sardinian foods, and they had wonderful suggestions for dinner on the islands, making reservations when necessary. The boat is spacious and contains all you need for a comfortable stay, even at full capacity there is plenty of room for everyone to relax. It is the only boat trip I have been on, but I know it is a treat to have an entire boat and a small group as opposed to a ton of people on a cruise or tour boat! I highly suggest booking with Vincent and Val, as you will make amazing memories you won’t forget!
