Where will we Cruise?
Italy's Amalfi Coast is one of the most postcard-perfect charter locations in the Mediterranean. Enjoy Bella Italia from the spacious decks while being sheltered from the elements by the extensively covered aft deck area. The advantage of doing this journey by boat is that you will never end up in a tourist trap, dine in the wrong place or go ashore at the wrong time of day! The crew know all the secret beaches and are always happy to share their knowledge.
From the fascinating town of Pozzuoli, cruise west taking in the islands of Procida, Ischia, Capri, Sorrento and the labyrinth of alleys that make up Positano. Explore the picturesque harbour and historic buildings of Amalfi town as well as the popular hillside town of Ravello.
Itineraries highlight the best food and wine the region can offer. Visit the local fruit and fish markets with the crew, tour a small family run vineyard in Ischia and enjoy some of the best Michelin starred restaurants in Italy. Taste the finest and oldest Prosecco or try the pasta alla norma - with tomatoes and eggplants.
Spend leisurely days exploring sheltered coves, visiting ancient ruins and charming local villages, before diving into the clear blue waters to kayak, snorkel, and swim in caves or partake in a more energetic activities such as water skiing, fishing or paddle boarding or simply chill out on deck and indulge in some of the delicious cuisine and fine wine on offer whilst onboard.
The charter fee includes three crew to pamper you throughout your entire cruise (Captain/Chef/Steward), organised activities, customised menu preparation, stocking of the boat, cooking, cleaning, linen and towels. Also included is water sports equipment such as kayaks, stand up paddles, water ski, wakeboard and snorkeling gear.
The featured price is based on eight people on a seven-night charter during 2019. Rates include local VAT charges but exclude the compulsory advance deposit payment known as APA.*
* The APA is charged in advance, prior to charter. It is then reconciled at the end of the charter. It's an additional fee, which covers extras such as food, drink, fuel, berthing costs, communications, massage, diving, and any additional incidentals. The APA is the standard system to pay your expenses on a luxury yacht charter. The APA for a sailing yacht is calculated at 25% - 30% of the yacht charter fee.
It is customary to tip the crew at 10-15% but this is completely at your discretion.
Ombre Blu 3 also offers alternative sailings around the Aeolian Islands off Sicily or in North Sardinia & Corsica. Charters are available between April- October, subject to availability. There are not any set departure dates and charters can start any day of the week for a duration of three nights upwards.
