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.
Your vacation on Lagoon440 in Sardinia, Italy may last a week or multiple weeks from Saturday to Saturday, you rent the whole catamaran, not a cabin. The rates vary significantly depending on the season. You should arrive to our base in Olbia by 17:00 to do the check in and on the last day of your charter you have to do the check out up to 9 a.m. the yacht must be refueled and with the empty fecal tanks. In case the damage occurred by customer’s fault it will be covered from your security deposit. The difference between the repair cost and the deposit amount will be refunded .The security deposit is to be done only by wire transfer. You may need visa. You may hire a skipper or be a skipper yourself provided you have your sailing certificate. You draft you routes by yourself, pay your mooring fees, your skipper's salary etc. If you prefer not to spend nights in marinas but to anchor you will save a little money. In this case you may use your dinghy to get to the shore and have some fun at the same time.
