Most charter guests on board of luxury sailing catamaran S/Y LIR
 cruise around Aeolian Islands off Sicily or in the region of Amalfi coast.  A typical start for your private yacht charter in this area will be in the vicinity of the Naples airport (Amalfi coast) or Milazzo (Sicily, 2hrs from Catania or Palermo airports).   Longer-term charters of at least two weeks in Naples region can take you towards the stunning and rarely explore Ponzine islands while when sailing in Sicily you can head West/SouthWest towards Egadi Islands or East/SouthEast towards luxury resort of Taormina and picturesque town of Siracusa. We can arrange for an exclusive, fully detailed sailing itinerary that will include sailing distances, top restaurants recommendations and options for various excursions and other tips. 

Highlights of S/Y LIR:

  • Top chef with sumptuous menu served on board
  •  One-of-a-kind boom sunshade on the flybridge custom made for S/Y LIR
  • 2x blow up platforms for lazing around in the water
  • A large sunbed at the aft and one on each side of the cockpit
  • The roll-up shades around the cockpit have roll-up mesh windows in them to allow a breeze to come through
  • Spacious master cabin with his and her sink in the bathroom
  • All cabins have an en-suite bathroom
  • Spacious saloon
  • Galley on deck to watch the Chef prepare delicious meals
  • Bright & modern interior
  • Excellent selection of watersport toys
  • Extensive charter record both in the Caribbean and the Mediterranean
  • The name LIR comes from a traditional Gaelic children’s story which is also tied into the logo


While enjoying a luxury catamaran charter around Italy,
you can select to dine in a number of fine restaurants, go hiking or otherwise exploring desired locations on foot, bicycles or even by renting a scooter or a car and a JEEP SAFARI, visit local vineyards for specially organised wine tasting and book a spa in one of the 5-star coastal resorts if your heart desires so.  Enjoy eating various Mediterranean or in particular Italian specialities on board too, with chef Thomas Van Der Giessen serving fresh lobster, spaghetti vongole, slow-cooked lamb leg or ceaser salad with great attention and only using freshest local ingredients and purchased on the day of cooking in the local markets.  Haute Cuisine is in other words not only served at 3-star Michelin restaurants dans le Paris, but also on board of luxury sailing catamaran LIR in the West Mediterranean.
