Corsica is one of the preferred charter destinations in the Mediterranean during the summer charter season. The large and mountainous French island provides perfect settings for an unforgettable charter vacation aboard a superyacht. This hiker’s and sailor’s paradise with rugged mountains and river gorges provides the charter guests with beautiful anchorages as well as ports and facilities of international standards.

Corsica is located between the French Riviera, Sardinia and Tuscany and it is well suited for practically any type of yacht charter. Many sailing yachts, motor yachts or catamarans will start their charter rent in Corsica, from where they will continue sailing towards French Riviera or sail the coast of Italy. Alternative option is also to charter a yacht in the port of Hyeres or Marseille, cruise the islands of the coast and then continue to Corsica.
