Let’s summarize. Your charter at Lagoon450 in Italy (Sardinia) may last a week – from Saturday to Saturday – or multiple weeks, you rent the whole boat, not only your cabin. The rates for this destination are quite high. On the day of check in you should arrive at our base in Olbia by 17:00 and sign the check in protocol, on the last day you have to check out up to 9 a.m. the fuel must be refilled, the fecal tanks - emptied. If during the check out procedure there are some breaches detected you will have to cover the repair works and spares from your security deposit (the difference will be refunded). . You may only leave the security deposit by means of wire transfer to our bank account. You may hire a skipper or be a skipper yourself provided you have naval license. Your sea routes are drafted by yourself, you pay your moorings, night stays in marinas etc. if you prefer to anchor you save your money. And getting to the beach with the dinghy is easy and brings lots of fun.
And now the full budget of your sea leisure at Lagoon450 and associated expenses. Let's compare you sea vacation and a hotel accommodation.
Let’s take an average rental price of 8000 EUR as the rates vary significantly within the season (from 4000 in low season to 12400 EUR in high season – for the newest model).
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 300 EUR per person.
Divided into 10 persons it will be around 1300 EUR per person.
The flight and visa will cost 250 EUR.
The grand total is around 1600 EUR per person.
And the final budget of the yacht Lagoon450 rent in Italy (deposit not included) is 16000EUR. Trully not so cheap.... you should mind 4000 EUR to be left as a security deposit – this amount is refundable. TOTAL is 20000 EUR.
Let’s compare it with a hotel stay: 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 should mind that comfort has its value and trying to save some money you will not reach many interesting places accessible only by sea. Easily accessible and well-known touristic places are usually overcrowded so that your level of comfort and the state of beaches will leave much to be desired. And what about the purest sea in a peaceful secure lagoon hidden from the crowds of tourists? What would you say about your meals that you choose and prepare from the freshest and most delicious local food or taste in tiny local cafes where you hardly meet any tourists? You are free to visit the most interesting localities not only in Sardinia but in French Corsica as well. Just compare with going there without a yacht and you will get 3 time higher expenses!
We recommend Lagoon 450 as an ideal yacht for a comfortable sea vacation in Italy with high level of comfort and freedom for 2 families (parents + kid). Another splendid variant is to gather your friends or business partners, if all of you are top managers))) but this island is worth its value. If you wish to experience tycoons' way of spending vacation and not to blow up your money – the yacht rent in Italy is your choice.
