You cannot avoid leaving the security deposit, you cannot even reduce it by means of damage waiver because of the Sardinian specifics. The only possible means of leaving the security deposit is a bank transfer that has to be made in advance +/- 7 days prior to the charter start. The sea doesn’t allow carelessness and Yacht Voyage cannot avoid taking precautions by holding security deposits. This amount is aimed at covering the repairs in case the damage occurred by customer’s fault. The difference between the repair cost and the deposit amount will be refunded. If the catamaran comes fine without any damages the customer gets full refund of the deposit. Please mind that it will take some while to send the money back to your account.

If you have any failures of important equipment during your charter we undertake to sort this out within 48 hours. On your request the base manager in Olbia will send you our technicians to make the repairs. In such cases we make a technical statement with the indication of a person in charge for the breach – he will be the one to cover the repair works. To feel safer you should hire a skipper with personal insurance and in case of his failure he will bear responsibility and you will save your deposit.

Equipment and capacity of the catamaran Lagoon 440.

Lagoon440 is a compromise between its cost and size. The size of Lagoon 440 is just one square foot less than Lagoon450 and the rental price is compatible to that of Lagoon380 (that is 7 ft less)! The equipment is also a compromise: it has electric toilets and does not have air conditioning system. But it is equipped with water maker and you don't need to be afraid of you running out of water (the yacht has water tanks as well). A couple of words about your comfort at sea - Lagoon440 has everything for it. Its length is 13,6 meters, width is 7,7 meters. This is more than 100-square meters comfortable space easily accommodating 12 persons. 4 double cabins with closets and big like-at-home beds, each cabin has its toilet and shower. The toilets are electric, you will like this feature. In the central saloon the big kitchen share the space with dining room. There are sofas and a convertible table, air conditioning, gas cooker with oven, microwave, washing basin, refrigerators, TV with DVD, audio system, 4 regimes of light, internal control panel and auxiliary spaces. On the deck there is a net between the forepeaks where you may lie on comfortable mats sunbathing. Above the saloon you may find another space for sunbathing . In the back side of the deck there is the most comfortable place for relaxing with a big table, comfortable sofas and a fridge. You may put on a transparent «screen» to protect yourself from wind. Each hull of the catamaran has wooden swimming platforms designed for safe access to the sea and equipped with steps, ladders and deck showers. If you travel with your kids under 5 years old we may offer you to have a safety net to prevent the risk of falling. The catamaran Lagoon440 is fully equipped with rescue means and safety equipment according to its capacity.

You will visit Italian Sardinia and French Corsica!

Where to go sightseeing. Olbia is an ideal place for its cuisine, prices, accessibility, historical places of interest, shopping. It is also easily reachable from the continent.

Some historical places that we may reccommend: the medieval basilica San-Simplicio and the Archaeological museum of Olbia. Cafes: the majority of them are located in Matteotti square. Olbia is a place for tourists without a yacht. Those who enjoy their vacation at a yacht have opportunity to visit all the marinas of the island and not limited to this. For example you can easily visit 'oligarch's place' Porto-Cervo, a luxurious resort with the rates two times higher than in other towns and anyway it is worth visiting . The capital of Sardinia is Cagliari, one of the famous places of interest of the town is the Castello quarter within the medieval walls. In the former armory there is a National archaeological museum. The young people will be fond of San Teodoro where they will find splendid beaches, watch flamingos, practice kite surfing and enjoy the night life.

And now your bonus for being aboard of a yacht – besides various islands around Sardinia you may go to the French Corsica- the place of birth of Napoleon. Corsican divine sandy beaches are for those who like to lie at the sun. For mounting explorers it will offer various mountain routes: Corsica is most mountainous island of the Mediterranean. And the tourist inspired by historical events will find lot of 'treasures' there dated by prehistoric civilization!

The Bonifacio Strait that divides Sardinia from Corsica always offers good winds. If you use your sails and happen to find another yacht who shares your passion you will get a bit of adrenaline from racing. By the way yacht Voyage usually organizes regattas in the Bonifacio Strait where you may participate for a rather small rate (around 1500 EUR per person with meals) even if you are not experienced in sailing. View here what it is like Italian cuisine. It is called «the island of thousand tastes». We recommend you to taste Sardinian boar 'cacciatore' or «а carracsu» that means 'braised under ground'. Bottarga is a Sardinian dish made of mullet or tuna caviar carefully taken from the fish and dried at the sun with salt – it is a great appetizer. Pecorino sardo is known as a king of Sardinian cheeses and the symbol of the island itself. In the end of May in the place Carloforte on the Island of San-Pietro Tuna round dance fest is held – it is an international gastronomic fair focused on sea products and tuna of the highest quality. It might be surprising but you should taste honey here. The legend says that the Greek god Aristey, the son of Apollo and Kirena was the one who taught the population of Sardinia to make honey.

The Corsican cuisine is likely to become your favorite. It is inspired by the Mediterranean Sea with a light Italian spirit and its special feature – chestnuts and «makki» -a mix of herbs grown only in the Corsican mountains. Corsican sausages are loved in France and even in Germany. These smoked and sun-dried 'souvenirs' are taken home after the vacation. What is their peculiarity? The secret is in the highest quality and authenticity. Figatelli sausages are made from pork meat with a bit of liver and many other kinds od sausages and meat pastes are made from black boar meat. Dont't miss local seafood. In good restaurants you will be offered fish caught near the Corsican shore. For example the fillet of fish Saint-Pierre. As the legend says it has a little black stain from St. Peter's rod. Chestnut beer Pietra, champagne vine muscat petillant, beverage alike cola called Mousse d'or, fruit juice Zia – this is what you may drink after your Corsican meal.

Now let's calculate the full budget of your yacht vacation on the catamaran Lagoon 440 in Italian Sardinia and French Corsica.

Let’s take an average rental price of 6200 EUR as the rates vary significantly within the season (from 3200 in low season to 9900 EUR in high season).

Adding mandatory extras for 370 EUR.

Fuel – up to 200 EUR per week.

Skipper service - 1400 EUR per week.

Some additional extra - 100 EUR.

Provisioning 200 EUR per person.

Divided into 8 persons it will be around 1250 EUR per person.

The flight and visa will cost 250 EUR.

The grand total is around 1500 EUR per person.

And the final budget of the yacht Lagoon440 rent in Italy (deposit not included) is 12000EUR. You should mind 4000 EUR to be wired in advance as a security deposit – this amount is refundable. TOTAL is 16000. For the one person it is really expensive, the cost is compatible to a small car, but the yacht accommodates up to 12 people! For example 2 or even 3 families with children result in just 1000 EUR per person!

You'd rather stay at a hotel? Ок, let's calculate.

A double room in a decent 5-star hotel for a week will cost minimum 1000 EUR (even if it is not in Porto Cervo). Your meals - for each lunch you need to spend around 50 EUR, if you add breakfast and dinner the total per day for 2 persons will be minimum 150 EUR that results in 1000EUR in total. Adding at least one excursion, sightseeing around the island (not islands), beach rates and some associated expenses we get minimum 350-400 EUR. The total per one person will be thus 1200 EUR. The flight and visa will add 250 EUR, and here you are with almost the same result of 1450 EUR per person. Of course in this calculation we took average and approximate rates: you may choose a cheaper hotel, spend all the day on one beach, don't dine out, but what is the reason of your visiting Italy then? Here we speak of comfortable leisure, active exploring of new places, tasting new food, experiencing new emotions and impressions. All of us are familiar with the condition of beaches, you neighbors in a hotel, included meals. But not everybody may visit both France and Italy within 7 days, practice yacht sailing, fishing, partying in various towns living in one 'hotel'. Not to mention the rate if you decide to make your trip from Sardinia to Corsica you will spend much more than 1 500 EUR per person.

In the conclusion let's revise the information on the yacht rent in Sardinia.
